comment Ubuntuphone Aquaris E 4.5 How to prevent webapps from stopping when losing focus?
This is a known issue. This requires Oxide to move to support Media-Hub. Once it does, webapps will be able to play audio in the background. It's in progress.

comment How do I backup my Ubuntu Phone?
Yes, all config and app data will be in your home. You can run "click list" to see a list of all apps installed, which could be a useful thing to backup.

There's no VOIP client yet. None of the existing ones will work, they need to be ported.

This question is answered at askubuntu.com/questions/602035/…

comment Where is the factory-reset image located on the bq Ubuntu phone
I think that just deletes user data. It doesn't wind the clock back to the original factory image.

comment What archives is the bq Ubuntu Phone on?
Yeah, we'll move to vivid soon. But there are ongoing discussions about what to do when the next device comes along, and whether we fork again.

comment What archives is the bq Ubuntu Phone on?
Do NOT add vivid/main to a shipping phone. The phone ships with rtm-14.09 which is a derivative of utopic, not vivid.

comment Where is the factory-reset image located on the bq Ubuntu phone
There isn't a factory reset image as such on the device. We support re-installing the OS in various ways, but the image needs to be downloaded then installed. It's not lurking on the device already.

comment How do I backup my Ubuntu Phone?
Backing up /home/phablet will backup everything except the apps which are in a number of places including /opt/click.ubuntu.com/ and /usr/share/click/preinstalled. However even backing up those directories won't be enough. Installing applications will unpack files in /opt but will also trigger other things like apparmor profile processing.

Unfortunately not yet. The platform doesn't expose the FM radio in a way that applications can use it.

comment Error submiting application to myapps.developer.ubuntu.com
I've been told that a workaround has been rolled out which should prevent this happening. It will still fail if your upload takes a very long time.

Spoke to the developers and they're working on a fix which extends the timeout. Thanks for reporting the issue!

comment Error submiting application to myapps.developer.ubuntu.com
Seems your file is obviously way bigger than mine which might be why yours fails and mine succeeds. After how long does it fail?

I just tested uploading a file myself and it's fine. Maybe try again now?
