There are no OpenSource drivers for the used hardware. That's why the
Ubuntu phone uses an Android kernel to access them.

Before coming to this device and community, I used another mobile, the
GTA-02 running a Linux. Maybe it's time to go back to this now and see

Aus "Nie wieder Krieg!" wurde "Nie wieder Krieg ohne Deutschlands Truppen"
The "No wars anymore!" changed now to "No wars anymore without German battle groups!"
El "¡Nunca jamás guerra!" ha cambiado a "¡Nunca jamás guerra sin tropas alemanas!"
