Not as simple as that. You would need support in Ubuntu Touch for the hardware in your iOS device. You would also need full access to the iOS device (storage, partitions, bootloader). You also need a hardware infrastructure that allows you to do this. Apple works very hard to make OS changes almost impossible.

Your question is in fact two questions, that could be asked in two separate questions and answered separately. 1) How to setup a WiFi access point with an Ubuntu laptop? I suggest you read the answer by @Err Hunter in this link. Please note to this comment: You must read the second source link if you are using Ubuntu14.04. 2) How to share files between ...

I just searched the entire source repository for Ubuntu Touch for "AMR" and there is nothing in there that suggests AMR-WB is used, so the simple answer to your question is: No. Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news…

Sure you can. Ubuntu touch has just been launched for Meizu 4. I did it on a Nexus 4 with android previously installed. All you need is to follow https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/start/ubuntu-for-devices/installing-ubuntu-for-devices/ which is easy. Don't forget the backup before installation. Beware: Ubuntu touch not yet as developped as Android is !! ...

I'd say the best course of action would be to file a bug against that "Stream-Player" or if it has no bug tracker then contacting its author/maintainer. a) It should recover gracefully from a disconnection (for which ever reason) b) It should not prevent you from starting to play something Also: Have you tried killing/stopping the app?

In addition to add the vendor USB ID: vi ~/.android/adb_usb.ini 0x2a45 I also needed to: vi /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="2a45", MODE="0664" GROUP="plugdev" udevadm control --reload udevadm trigger I restarted the adb server and it worked.

One big problem with mtp is that it is not available from within cygwin. One can use mtp within windows but the mtp devices are not provided as a drive letter which is needed for cygwin. I have essentially the same use case as Tor Thommesen and found a way to expose my external sd-card within the phone as mass storage device. On BQ E5 Ubuntu Edition with ...

In https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com/dev/click-apps/ you can click the app in question, and in the left column, under the app logo, you can find an orange button to 'unpublish' it. Users that already downloaded it, still have access to it and can redownload it in the app store, though, so that's maybe why you yourself can still see it there...

The GPS will work without accepting Nokia HERE but it can take time for it to get a position. Get the app SensorsStatus and put it in GPS mode and leave the phone on. Disable the screen lock (security settings) to keep the phone active. After a while the app will show your position. This way you can know GPS is functioning and while this worked on my BQ ...

For learning using a linux based OS, I would recommend to install Ubuntu (or a different distribution, if you want) on a desktop pc, since Ubuntu touch is still kind of experimental and it will be easier to get help for the well established desktop OS. You might want to try it first in a virtual machine, if you want to keep your old OS and are scared to ...

I ran into an issue with Telegram after having changed the password to my Ubuntu One account the other day. Perhaps removing your ubuntu one account and then setting it up again on your phone will resolve this for you. Its more a guess than an answer though.

Try tapping the device in the Bluetooth settings and clicking Connect. If you get a PIN prompt, there's a chance you've got the same problem as described in this question. Alternatively if it appears in your connected devices but nothing happens when you press keys, you might be having the same problem as in this question. In either of those cases, it ...

Interesting. I never experienced this, and I'm sure it's not supposed to do that (as you probably also suspect). I fiddled around to reproduce. There are no account settings in the phone other than inside the app, so I don't think there's a problem there. (like gmail has an account in system settings - accounts) I opened a webapp on my pc for Telegram, ...

I have noticed that mail in conversation tagged "important" in your mail box always generate notifications but not the others which seems to generate notification randomly and very few time.

I have noticed this too, but I haven't changed password at all. Sometimes rebooting the phone is enough, sometimes uninstall and delete the file as in this post solved it for a while.

Perhaps the easiest way that comes to my mind is to enable SSH (no adb, no developer mode) on your Ubuntu Touch device and transfer your files using WinSCP

Cron and many command line tools are available. It is however not possible to safe any changes made to crontab unless you make your system partition writeable.

It involves invoking a script with ...

I quickly found out that it couldnt find some headers because i didnt properly copied them (silly me). But it didnt solve the linking problem.

This issue is already known. In oder to bring about a speedy fix, I recommend heading over to Launchpad and mark the bug as affecting you too and also subscribe to it. This will increase the 'heat' for this issue and hopefully we can have it fixed soon. As a (unsatisfactory) work around I resolved to not use notifications in my calendar events for the time ...

It appears the reason was a changed password to my Ubuntu One account. The only way to be able to re-authenticate was to delete the account and then set it up again. Notifications are working again. Keeping this Q&A for anyone bumping into the same issue.

This answer does not require any cables and will provide you with wireless access to your phone's file system without developer mode. You may want to consider enabling SSH Service. Follows the link in the answer and then proceed with its instructions to be able to toggle the SSH Service. This is on 15.04 though. Once you have done that you can sftp into ...

A comment before recommended linking your SDCard from your home directory. This is how it goes. SSH into your phone or open the terminal app. Stay in your home folder. Find the mountpoint of your SD-Card: ls /media/phablet/. In my case AC5D-91D7 Create a symbolic link. You have to replace AC5D-91D7 with the output of the command in step 2: ln -s ...

As stated in a comment before, this seems to be the easiest way to enable SSH Server on Ubuntu Touch and also provides an elegant way to get your ssh keys on the device. Once this is done, you may want to have a way to toggle the SSH server state for extra security while roaming in foreign networks: SSH into your device: ssh phablet@YOURDEVICEIP Create a ...

At this point in time the only thing that can be done to bring about a more feasible answer is to head over to launchpad and mark the the following bug as affecting you too and subscribe to it.

Don't use QtQuick Controls, or ship the QtQuick Controls you need as part of your application. Ubuntu provides its own set of QML widgets under the Ubuntu.Components namespace, instead of using those provided by QtQuick Controls. If you want your app to feel native on an Ubuntu device, you should use those widgets. If that's undesirable or impossible, you ...

Found an answer here: why ubuntu touch terminal cannot execute app Apparently it has to do with the Terminal app's apparmor settings. Run sudo nano `ls /var/lib/apparmor/profiles | grep "terminal"` and replace the lines indicated in the link with /** pix, (remember the comma, if omitted terminal app will stop working) and restart.

Both Ubuntu 32-bit and Ubuntu 64-bit (desktop / server, in any flavour) will run on your tablet, however your tablet's specifications are a little low (an I'd guess the graphic card, which is another important piece of hardware to take into account, is either low-end or integrated). I'd suggest you to install a lightweight version of Ubuntu such as Lubuntu ...

Maybe a Dualboot configuration works for you. According to this (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/DualBootInstallation) guide you need to unlock your bootloader. I am not sure, how this affects your warranty. The statement quoted by @TrevorClarke talks only about removing the original OS (which should be kept when using a dual boot).

There is no Ubuntu touch for this device (that I could find). You should look at xubuntu as your CPU is weak, it comes with an on-screen keyboard, find it in Applications > Universal Access > Onboard Settings, so no worries there, on the log in screen you will see the accessibility icon ( a little man symbol) and can start the keyboard from there. ...

I was able to solve this by factory resetting the phone: System Settings - Reset phone - Erase & Reset Everything. This is not a very satisfying answer, as I had to reconfigure all sorts of stuff, but got the job done nonetheless.

Yes - it is possible to downgrade it to android and you can follow this guide - http://a25.co/ubuntu-phone-how-to-install-android/ (which is not written by me).
