UBports' Ubuntu Touch Porting Now Easier To Newer Devices

Filed under

Libhybris is the software project that makes it easier for conventional Linux distributions relying upon Glibc or Musl to access drivers/software built for Android (Bionic C library) software. Ubuntu Touch had been using libhybris for years going back to Canonical's original Ubuntu Touch efforts, but was focused on 32-bit ARM until now and thus not working with 64-bit Android drivers. Landing of the 64-bit ARM version of libhybris should help in being able to run newer 64-bit bits on modern Android devices.

    UBports, the makers of the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system published a weekly update on their development progress to bring Ubuntu Touch to more devices.
    While UBports is working hard to port Ubuntu Touch to more smartphones and tablets, the latest being PINE64's PinePhone and Volla Phone smartphones, they've also been able to make Ubuntu Touch run on a Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computer (SBC) with the official Raspberry Pi 7" touch screen LCD, which appears to be a true development platform for Ubuntu Touch.

    "Ubuntu Touch was shown running on a Raspberry Pi 3 with a 7" touch screen. Raspberry Pis are really maturing as development platforms and will make access to Ubuntu Touch application development possible for a much wider base," said UBports. "That matters a lot because it will help create a true development platform for UT, for the first time."
