Is the SIM working? When I tried ubuntu last time, I have always been in flight mode.

Sorry if I sound impatient :wink: I am a little bit excited, as I have been hoping to use ubuntu on FP2 for a long time now.
Thumps up for your efforts!

I had problems following the firs post Manual.
In point 4 theres no description where to do “adb shell mount /cache” im in Recovery Mode of Ubports I wasn’t able to find a terminal in the recovery. And from my Laptop i didn’t have connection to the phone over adb. adb devices list is empty. I added the line below to the file: /etc/udev/rules.d/android.rules
SUBSYSTEMS==“usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==“2ae5”, ATTRS{idProduct}==“9015”, GROUP=“users”, MODE="0666"
then i got connection. Maybe @wouterx can add that to the manual…

Now connected over adb to the phone i get this message:
$ adb shell mount /cache
mount: mounting /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/cache on /cache failed: Device or resource busy

How can i get over that, i have no clue…

Hi Novski,

Thanks for your feedback!

Most users will put it in

/etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
SUBSYSTEMS==“usb”, ATTRS{idVendor}==“2ae5”, ATTRS{idProduct}==“9015”, GROUP=“users”, MODE=“0666”

Device or resource busy
this can really only mean two things

  1. /cache is already mounted ->continue step 5
  2. Manual mount cache ->

adb shell
mount -a
exit
-> continue step 5

Hi @juri.gagarin.ii i don’t think thats relevant because i built upon the https://github.com/smoose-nils/fp2_android repo desicribed in post #2. I have no idea how its related to the work the guys here are doing. Nor if they are working in this repo. But if its of any use for anybody i wold reload the newest repo commits and test seriously.

I think i wold then need a word about if anything else than system.img has to be copyed to the device to update it…

@wouterx no i sadly can’t join UbuCon…
