ssh on BQ ubuntu touch phone

Connect your device via USB, enable Developer Mode in:

“System-Settings->About This Phone->Developer Mode”

…and run (from your PC, make sure to have the phone screen unlocked, else adb will refuse to let you in):

adb shell android-gadget-service enable ssh

Copy your public key to the Phone:

adb shell mkdir /home/phablet/.ssh
adb push ~/.ssh/ 
adb shell chown -R phablet.phablet /home/phablet/.ssh
adb shell chmod 700 /home/phablet/.ssh

adb shell chmod 600 /home/phablet/.ssh/authorized_keys

Now you can look up your IP on the phone and use ssh to connect:
adb shell ip addr show wlan0|grep inet
ssh phablet@<IP from above command>

are you thinking convergence?

if your thinking of trying convergence using ubuntu touch and ubuntu unity 8 you will need two things


for the computer or laptop wily werewolf, this is well in testing!

this is convergence,

and ubuntu touch on you phone or tablet, if its supported! nexus 4/5 or seven and others are suported

dont forget this is early days, the phone / tablet stuff is pretty solid but the last piece of the jigsaw the desktop isnt going to be ready till at least the end of 2015 🙂

happy hacking


ubuntu your making my life hard… but your not..

well landed in spain this time loaded with 2 x ubuntu bq phones> installed a vodafone UK sim and a spanish orange sim which is mundo works great for switching between phone networks.


Hotel – brittania airport –    rating very poor.

t hotel is a nightmare its dirty and we didnt get transfers and had to move the car into a pay car park. When i called up to dispute thet never called me back, never use this hotel it can not be trusted.


Hotel Asur campo, amazing hotel – great location – 5 minute walk to the gibralter border.

gibralterall ican say is fag stop and leg it..


Hotel – juan miguel   –  rating very good

graffiti granada, expensive parking, food and drinks although the juan miguel is a lovely hotel and great location. Make sure you book the alahmbra otherwise you will end up not being able to get in!!

Alca la real

Hotel – Hostel rio de oro   – rating very good

perfection with heritage

great prices, great location, plenty of amenities and tapas with all your drinks worked out the most cost effective place ive ever stayed in spain.

el parque is great location in the local park seemed to be the latest bar open, which was like 11.30/12pm

alaska is another great bar just off the park and has great beer and the tapas is one of the best and great friendly service used this place a lot.


 Hotel – El Barrio   – rating very good

amazing apartments we had one which was more like a studio and had a balcony. Loved it. Best location.

Bamboo, food and service and views amazing will come back try prawns with garlic starter the best on the coast.


Hotel – Hostal Los Corchos – not bad 🙂

, took us ages to find this place – not bad 24hr reception and stayed on groud floor. Quite a way down at the end of the town but great rates and clean rooms.
