Ubuntu Touch Porting Clinic: next Thursday
August 19, 2013
Whether or not Ubuntu Edge will get the green light or not (read Joey’s great 5 Reasons Why You Should Stop What You’re Doing & Pledge to #UbuntuEdge), everybody’s hard at work making Ubuntu Touch, the beautiful mobile OS happen. Two weeks ago we had our first Ubuntu Touch Porting Clinic and it went quite well. We found and fixed a number of issues in our tools, our porting guide and many porters turned up to ask their questions and update the images.
Ubuntu Touch Porting: next steps
August 2, 2013
We had our first Ubuntu Touch Porting clinic yesterday and we made quite a bit of progress there. Sergio Schvezov published a branch of phablet-tools, which will allow everyone to flash all kinds of devices (for which we have images) just by running something like phablet-flash community –device i9100 This should make things a lot lot easier for everyone. The only thing which needs to be done is to follow this process which documents where the images live.
Getting Ubuntu Touch out to more users
July 29, 2013
The unstoppable Sergio Schvezov is working on bug 1201811 right now. Once it’s fixed this should put is into a position where users of devices for which we have Ubuntu Touch images (and not just the four devices we supported right from the start) can just use phablet-flash. This doesn’t mean that they are “officially supported” or that they’re built daily in the Canonical data centre, but that you can make use of the images much more easily.
