Aethercast will reach unofficial mobiles with Ubuntu Phone

Ubuntu Phone

After the arrival of the new OTA-11, many users already have Aethercast on their devices, which has made the famous Canonical convergence closer than we think. But this new feature will not be coming to unofficial devices, at least for now.

One of the developers of ubports has announced that Aethercast is coming to the Nexus 5 and OnePlus One. These devices, like others, have Ubuntu Phone unofficially. As official channels do not include these devices. But thanks to Marius Gripsgard, there is very little left for Aethercast to become a reality on such devices.The new Ubuntu Phone technology is really available in the Nexus 5, but only in the development channels and the developer himself states that it is not stable or recommended to use for terminals that are used on a day-to-day basis. But, although many claim that this is not much, the truth is that these developments they are the prelude to the arrival of a new technology that will further enhance and improve the Ubuntu Phone platform.

Aethercast is coming to OnePlus One unofficially

Although the Nexus 5 is an old terminal and even more so the OnePlus One, the truth is that for the basic operation of Ubuntu Desktop is more than enough and users may have an inexpensive alternative to reach and use Ubuntu Convergence. Unfortunately we cannot have this at this time.

UBPorts is the project that was born from all those devices that did not have an official version of Ubuntu Phone and that Canonical and Ubuntu could not take charge of their development, but what seemed like the end is nothing more than an illusion because it seems that the developments are taking on more life even than official development. we hope that Aethercast is available quickly for all Ubuntu Touch mobiles, since it is an interesting project that means that we do not have to depend on the cables for its operation.
