After the arrival of the new OTA-11, many users already have Aethercast on their devices, which has made Canonical’s famous convergence closer than we think. But this new feature will not reach unofficial devices, at least for now.
One of the developers of UBports has announced that Aethercast will arrive on the Nexus 5 and the OnePlus One. These devices, like others, have Ubuntu Phone unofficially. since official channels do not contemplate these devices. But thanks to Marius Gripsgard, there is very little left for Aethercast to become a reality on these devices.Really new Ubuntu Phone technology is available on the Nexus 5, but only on development channels and the developer himself claims that it is not stable or recommended to use for terminals that are used in everyday life. But while 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 enhance and further improve the Ubuntu Phone platform.
Aethercast will arrive on OnePlus One unofficially
While 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 a cheap alternative to achieving and using Ubuntu Convergence. Unfortunately we can’t have that at the moment.
UBPorts is the project that was born from all these devices that did not have an official version of Ubuntu Phone and that Canonical and Ubuntu could not take over its development, but what seemed like the end is just an illusion for it seems that developments are taking on even more life than official development. We hope that Aethercast is quickly available for all Ubuntu Touch phones, as it is an interesting project that makes us not have to depend on cables for their operation.
