ubuntu-phone: Landing team 11.06.15

Filed under
Ubuntu

Hello everyone,

Busy day today. The final OTA-4 candidate is almost ready. We built 2
snapshot-images today - first one didn't include one fix due to a
missing package copy, second one with everything ready is now being
tested by QA. All in all, once OTA tests are finished, we'll hand it
over to BQ and release. Hopefully the final OTA-4 release should happen
on Monday. But thanks to all of that we included another MMS related fix
to the whole batch.

Cheers!

Filed under
Moz/FF
Ubuntu

Chances are pretty good you've heard of either Firefox OS or Ubuntu Touch (aka Ubuntu Phone). Chances are not so good that you've actually seen one in action. There's a reason for that--when first officially released, both platforms aimed low. The Firefox OS set its sights on low-end devices and smaller markets.

This low-end hardware ensured one thing--the major markets would completely ignore the platforms.

Nintendo Switch hack + Dolphin Emulator could bring GameCube and Wii game support

This week security researchers released details about a vulnerability affecting NVIDIA Tegra X1 processors that makes it possible to bypass secure boot and run unverified code on some devices… including every Nintendo Switch game console that’s shipped to date. Among other things, this opens the door for running modified versions of Nintendo’s firmware, or alternate operating systems such as a GNU/Linux distribution. And if you can run Linux… you can also run Linux applications. Now it looks like one of those applications could be the Dolphin emulator, which lets you play Nintendo GameCube and Wii games on a computer or other supported devices. Read more
