Hi @raphael68 !
Yes indeed UBports is working fine on my FP2
As I already mentioned here, I had trouble with the UBports-installer so I used the CPT alternative installer.
Do you have a recent FP2 (shipped in or after summer 2017) with the new screen ? If this is the case, you’ll have to install the devel channel as the fix are not yet pushed to stable OTA-2… (or wait for OTA-3 as it will come soon )
If you need any help the UBports community can help you on their Telegram group !
To install UBPorts, you can choose between three tools : UBPortsInstaller/CPT/MDT.
However, a common prerequisite is (1) to enable developer mode/ADB debugging on device and (2) to install ADB drivers on computer.
(1) Go to settings, scroll all the way down to About this device (or about this phone) select that, scroll down to build number, and start tapping that fast over and over until it says you’ve unlocked developer
Then go back up one level and now there is a new menu option called options for developers. Select that, then scroll down to USB debugging, switch that on.
Now adb should work on your phones side.
(2) To get adb on your linux pc working with FP2, follow those instructions: sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
First you have to install ubuntu-phablet-tools: sudo apt-get install phablet-tools
Than you have to add your device to your desktop. In my case for the Fairphone 2: echo "0x2ae5" > ~/.android/adb_usb.ini
Then you have to kill the adb server: adb kill-server
And than with adb devices you get your adb device listed.
sorry to hear you’re experiencing problems. Could i ask you to try again using the UBports Installer, since i worked on that and it’s a little more sophisticated than CPT and MDT, it’s easier for me to support you. You can download the latest version here: https://github.com/ubports/ubports-installer/releases/latest. On the first screen, it will ask you to enable developer mode on your device, make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
If you continue to experience issues, please keep us in the loop.
The phone was connected of course with USB, but nothing happened during the next hour …
But luckily the phone was not wiped like with the cpt before. What I do not unterstand: When I made a setup (after wipe) with the script out of FP2-gms-17.11.2-manual.zip (I did it in windows) , this worked…
Thanks, I did it. And now?
I don’t want to use the CPT again, because until now it didn’t work, wiped the phone and I had to set up it again and again and again with the script inside FP2-gms-17.11.2-manual.zip (I did it on a Windows System…)
Hallo I also need Help with installing Ubuntu touch on my new Fair-phone 2 with 12mp Camera Module.
I tried to install it several times did not work out. I did in on a win 7 system with CPT Installer but the installation went wrong (aborted at maybe 30 % of precess. Now I’m not able to start android or ubuntu or anything else. I think it only starts in bootloader mode but I’m not sure. There are two modes fist is the logo as in bootloader mode and second is black screen with only flashing a little red LED when I try to activate bootloader mode whit pushing Vol. down and Power button an same time.
Now I’m on a ubuntu running laptop tried UBports, CPT and magic device tool but all 3 are not able to detect the phone (in bootloader mode)
