This page tries to list and explain all available Ubuntu Touch channels that have been currently set-up. Please remember that this information can get quickly out-of-date. All the refactored channels follow the schema specified in Touch/ChannelSchemaSpec - please read this document to understand the rationale for the following setup.
Current Channel List
Manually promoted images that reach end-user devices. This is the channel that should be used for everyday use phones. The bq-aquaris.en channel is also the channel which all commercial BQ devices are flashed from.
ubuntu-touch/stable/ubuntu - channel with the community custom tarball
ubuntu-touch/stable/bq-aquaris.en - channel with the BQ custom tarball
ubuntu-touch/stable/ubuntu-developer - channel with a developer-oriented custom tarball, including extra payload useful for app-developers
Manually promoted images from ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/*. An image from this channel once per month gets promoted to the stable channel as the new official OTA update.
Automatically built images that are candidates for the rc and later the stable channels; these are currently built from ubuntu/vivid + stable-phone-overlay PPA. RC promotion evaluation in general happens twice a month.
ubuntu-touch/rc-proposed/bq-aquaris.en-proposed - channel for testing of new custom tarballs before upload
Manually promoted images from ubuntu-touch/devel-proposed/*. Promotions do not follow any specific schedules.
ubuntu-touch/devel/krillin.en - (will be renamed to bq-aquaris.en)
Automatically built images from the latest devel series (currently ubuntu/wily). This is the channel that has the latest bleeding-edge development, absolutely no guarantee of stability.
ubuntu-touch/devel-proposed/ubuntu - devel channel with the community custom tarball
ubuntu-touch/devel-proposed/krillin.en - devel channel with the BQ custom tarball (will be renamed to bq-aquaris.en)
ubuntu-touch/devel-proposed/krillin.en-proposed - devel channel for testing of new custom tarballs before upload (will be renamed to bq-aquaris.en-proposed)
