Get Involved

So you are looking to help us? That's awesome! The UBports project is fairly young, so every helping hand is greatly appreciated. It does not take much to make a great difference, and this page will help guide you finding a task that best fits your skills, interests and capabilities.

Financial contributions

Everybody can help by making a financial contribution. This finances our server infrastructure and debug devices, and helps covering additional costs. All team-members work for for free in their spare time, but with your help we will be able to finance a full-time developer soon!

Patreon

Help keeping the lights on at UBports by becoming a patreon supporter! A small monthly contribution can already make a big difference, plus you get access to a special patreon-exclusive newsfeed! Learn more at patreon.com/ubports.

PayPal

Not ready for a monthly commitment? No problem with that! You can still pitch us a couple of bucks using PayPal.

Hardware

You have a working device you want to get rid of for whatever reason? You want to buy us a new device because you want to be sure we don't waste your precious dough on blackjack and hookers? Great, you can certainly do that! Just shoot us an email at me[at]mariogrip[dot]com and we will send someone to personally kiss your feet and pick up your device. No, that will actually not happen like that, but we will get back to you. :)

Bitcoin

To ensure the maximum amount of privacy and decentralized blockchain-goodness during your donation process, we also provide bitcoin-addresses for all supported devices at devices.ubports.com. Be proud of your tinfoil hat and confuse the NSA!

Spread the word

If you like the UBports project, let people know. Talk about it with your friends and family. Wear our shirts and hoodies every day. Stick our stickers to everything. Get a full-body UBports-tatoo. Buy a Zeppelin with the words "I LOVE UBUNTU TOUCH" on it and let it fly over your city for one day. Show us some luv!

Ok, some of our suggestions may be a little over-the-top, but you get the Idea. Since we are an independend donation-funded project, we can't spend huge amounts on marketing, so every bit of PR and word of mouth helps a lot!

Project contributions

Testing and Quality Assurance

If you notice something that does not work as it should, and it's not listed on known issues, please file a bug. You can also help us a lot, by proof-reading, triaging and confirming bugreports. Quality Assurance is a great way to get started with development!

Code

We can always use help developing and porting Ubuntu Touch. Patch our source code.

Improve the wiki

Our documentation is a mess! Help us changing that.
