Nice Sunday progress, #Qt 5.7.1 transition completion in #Ubuntu 17.04 +Qt

This is the best currently available Ubuntu phone, I recommend it even though sadly the original Ubuntu edition sold out completely (I got one). I'm even considering buying a spare Pro 5 since I like it so much and would hate to lose/break it... camera (1/2.4"), speed, screen (AMOLED), battery capacity (3050mAh), fingerprint reader, everything's great about it :)
How to flash Meizu Pro 5 to Ubuntu Touch

From the start the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu has become very popular. Unfortunately, the phone was sold out very quickly, therefore a lot of Ubuntu users couldn't order the new Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu phone. For that reason Wouter Voeten and Maarten van Druten have made an extensive document how to flash a standard Meizu Pro 5 phone (with Flyme OS) to Ubuntu!

They would like to share this document with others, so more Ubuntu users can enjoy having Ubuntu on the Meizu Pro 5 phone. It gives any user a fully working Ubuntu phone, that accepts all official Ubuntu OTA updates.

This document is a manual for people who have advanced experience with flashing phones. The manual has been tested by several users and it works perfectly with the International and Chinese versions of the Meizu Pro 5. However, using this manual is at your own risk. We cannot guarantee your phone will be working. If you experience any difficulties, we or Ubuntu cannot be held responsible.

Another big Qt update ongoing. Qt 5.6 is +Qt upstream's Long Term Supported release and as such both suitable and targetted to the next stable Ubuntu phone/tablet platform based on Ubuntu's own LTS. A perfect match! #qt #ubuntu

I got my +MEIZU Pro 5 #Ubuntu Edition, I managed to order it before it was sold out! It's fast (both use, and 4G network connection), it has a great camera, and everything seems to work smoothly with the latest software update that was available.

Oh hi first successful boot of #Qt 5.6 on #Ubuntu Phone (LG Nexus 4) after battling through loads of build problems (and xenial image boot up problem). Many months to go though before this would land.

I've a Braswell Chromebook. I'm wishing to install a Linux distro, since I'm not planning to use ChromeOS (optimally not even log in).

I'm mostly a Chromebook newbie, so this might be too non-informative post but any pointers welcome. Booting from USB in either UEFI or Legacy mode after enabling dev mode + debug + dev_boot_usb/dev_boot_legacy doesn't work right away, unlike on C720P where Legacy mode booting worked. The Ubuntu USB stick itself is testably both UEFI and Legacy functional on other computers. I tried two other USB sticks too.

The model is "CYAN" D2P-C5F-M6A-A9S, that is Acer Chromebook R11 CB5-132T, Celeron N3150 / 4GB RAM / 32GB SSD. I don't easily find any developer related information on that yet, but probably in git somewhere already there are things?

Out from googling, I tried
chromeos-firmwareupdate --sb_extract /tmp
flashrom -w /tmp/bios.bin -i RW_LEGACY

But apparently the SeaBIOS is still not enabled (still two beeps when pressing Ctrl-L). I guess the only possible next steps are disabling write protection from the motherboard and finding out how a firmware mod of one of the three types could be created? Or could it still be that disabling write protection plus writing GBB_FLAGs could enable the SeaBIOS without custom firmware?
