About the Bq E4.5 with Ubuntu Touch

A solid entry-level smartphone

The Bq E4.5 was one of the first commercially available Ubuntu Touch devices!

Note: Bq E4.5 devices that are sold with Android have a locked bootloader, so those need to be manually unlocked by installing the manufacturers Ubuntu image before switching to UBports' release of Ubuntu Touch.

Install Ubuntu Touch on the Bq E4.5
With the UBports Installer, you can get Ubuntu Touch on your Bq E4.5 without breaking a sweat. You can use any Linux, Windows, or macOS computer to run the installer. Simply plug in your device and follow the on-screen instructions, then sit back and let the computer do all the work for you. Alternatively, you can follow the manual installation instructions.
