Microsoft loves Linux so much that its latest operating system is based on Linux. Azure Sphere OS is designed to run on embedded devices and IoT.
Want to check which Linux kernel version your distro is running on? Well, it’s pretty easy to find out. All you need is a working keyboard, a few fingers, and a pair of eyes. Oh, and a terminal emulator. But before we show you the command that lets you quickly find which kernel version you’re […]

Linux Kernel 4.13 is officially out! Announcing the release on the Linux Kernel Mailing List (LKML) Linus Torvalds says: “last week was actually somewhat eventful, but not enough to push me to delay 4.13,” going on to recount some personal issues involving a kidney stone — ouch! “Go get the new kernel,” he encourages. The next release, […]
Happy 26th birthday Linux! Yes, it’s that time of the year once again, the day which most open-source enthusiasts consider to be the famous kernel’s formal founding. It was on this day 26 years ago that a plucky Fin named Linus Torvalds punched out a small announcement about his ‘hobby’ operating system and shared it with the Minix newsgroup. […]
Before proceeding, make sure your phone is charged. Also, like with any flashing procedure, this may brick your device, so use these instructions at your own risk! And finally, I should mention that I didn’t yet try to perform a reverse procedure (install Ubuntu Touch back) so if you plan on doing this in the future, you’ll have to figure out how to do it yourself.
1. What you’ll need
1.A. adb and fastboot.
In Ubuntu, adb and fastboot are available in the official repositories. To install them, use the following commands:
sudo apt install adb fastboot
These can also be downloaded from HERE (for Linux, Mac and Windows).
1.B. Flyme firmware (global version).
The Meizu MX4 global firmware is available to download from HERE.
1.C. recovery.img from Flyme OS.
Place the firmware along with the recovery image in your home folder.
3. You may encounter an error with adb / fastboot not detecting the Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition device. To fix this, open the ~/.android/adb_usb.ini file with a text editor (if it doesn’t exist, create the “.android” folder in your home directory, and a file called adb_usb.ini inside this folder) and paste the following in this file:
… and save the file.
On Windows, this file is available under C:Users<user name>.android
4. Flash the recovery and Flyme OS
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
(or enter the exact path to where you downloaded “recovery.img”)
adb reboot recovery
Once you get to the screen I mentioned above, run the following command
adb sideload update.zip
(or enter the exact path to where you downloaded “update.zip”)
On the next reboot, your Meizu MX4 should run Flyme instead of Ubuntu Touch. Note that the first boot might take a long time!
Rooting the device is very easy. You’ll need to create a Meizu account and log in to it on the Meizu MX4. Next, go to Settings > Security > Root Permission and agree to the terms. That’s it.

Hardware company Purism is best known for being the driving force behind the goal of creating a truly free software laptop — but are they about to launch a Linux phone? Fuelling speculation that, yes, they are, the company accidentally published a blog post earlier today titled: “Phone Campaign Temporary Page“. Oblique title, sure, and as […]
