I have installed ubuntu by follow this guide
or to be more correct, mixed with this
I was able to install ubuntu OTA11 using this tutorial. I did not read the articles from (4.) here is what I did: 1. unlock using xda links 1-3, press home-power-down for recovery mode TWRP 2. copied via USB all ubuntu OTA-11 files to TWRP folder. 3. Installed everything as said 4. unpacked not using tar -vxf but just tar -xf /sdcard/TWRP/… (10x times faster), reboot! – grandrew Jun 28 at 20:50`
Now I have ota-11, but I would of course like to update, and as it says here, it's possible
For those interested in OTA updates – in this method you should do it manually. Ubuntu will download OTA files to /cache/recovery. You need to manually unpack them. After you tap "install and reboot" in ubuntu updater – system will boot into custom loader. Mount system and unpack new files using tar as said in main post using advanced->terminal. – grandrew Aug 2 at 10:29`
I checked /cache/recovery after I tapped "install and reboot" ,and it was quit a lot of files there.
I am little bit unsure which files I should "tar".
- Can I cd to recovery and "tar" there, does it work like that?
- It is also tar.xz.asc and tar.xz files there, but I guess tar.xz.asc is some kind of signatur. So if I have understood it correctly, the only files I "tar" in recovery is the tar.xz
- Do I only "tar" the 4 as in the guide or do I include image-master.tar.xz and image-signing.tar.xz? If that is the case, in which order do I "tar" them?
- It's also some more files there,
ubuntu_command, .version, last_log, log, recovery.fstab, storage.fstabCan I ignore them?
- When I am done (however it's going to work) can I wipe cache?
I now it was a lot of question, but if it works, at least I have understood a little bit more about the Ubuntu phone and maybe I don't brick it yet 🙂
