Installing ubport on Nexus4 using macOS and VirtualBox
Since original installer is not working on any platform by default for Nexus 4, here is workaround using MacOS and VirtualBox with Ubuntu 16.04
- Install VirtualBox : https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.0/VirtualBox-6.0.0-127566-OSX.dmg
- Please be aware that you will need to install VirtualBox Extension Pack in order to use USB 2.0 (EHCI) controller which is needed. Download extension pack here: https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.0/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.0.0.vbox-extpack
- Set up Ubuntu OS
- in VirtualBox window select OS and go to Settings -> Ports -> USB (tab): *check Enable USB Contntroller *select USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller (if you get message that its not supported on the bottom of the window, you did not install extension pack) *On the right from USB Filters section you will have incos with (+) sign, add your device while in fastboot mode.
