I just thought it would be so easy to get all the well known contacts into the Anbox. I tried using dropbox to transfer the file. Dropbox in Anbox is working fine, but after saving the file to my device, I can’t find the file at the device. Dropbox opened a different container comparing to the Anbox - file container . Now I will test Whatsapp typing the contacts again and it it works that won’t be bad at all.
BTW, in the UT telegram group someone asked about spotify web player in the new morph browser. In the past I only tried the old one.
Doesn’t help much. It is possible to login at spotify.com but then opening the web player at open.spotify.com just looks the same as with the old browser: no access to your playlists, no way to actually play songs (it’s the same on Android BTW, so I guess mobile browsers are not supported, indepenent of the OS).
So it seems the only way to listen to Spotify on UT is with anbox + original android app (at the cost of a big battery drain).
I have a question, and I think that I once read something about it on the forum, but I can’t find a detailed answer. Mostly to @Ingo, as you change OS quite often, but maybe @oli.sax also?
How do you backup and restore your OS when you make your tests? Let’s say someone is under the latest Fairphone Open OS or LineageOS (with or without microg), and wants to try UBports.
Can you describe all the steps you do (including the time it takes to do so)?
Backup your phone (with TWRP or with Titanium or another method?)
I have an FP2 dedicated for testing purposes so I don’t restore a previous OS.
What I do is backing up my ubports user data with rsync. And of course that can be reversed to restore the data (not the apps; still need to look into that) if I for example were to check out Sailfish and then return to UT.
When the phone is not at the exact required Android version it’s basically two or three additional steps in the installation sequence for Sailfish.
It doesn’t matter if you come from Fairphone (Open) OS, Lineage with or without microG or Ubports in that case. The steps/effort are the same.
