UBports’ Marius Gripsgård and Canonical’s Łukasz Zemczak have confirmed that the Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 update has been officially released for the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and OnePlus One devices.

Marius Nestor of Softpedia had earlier reported that Canonical was going to release the Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 update for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 a day later than it was intended because of a small issue which needed fixing.Ubuntu Touch OTA-10

The OTA-10 update was, however, delayed further due to an issue which cropped up in the PulseAudio sound server blocking the access of Camera and Messaging apps to the microphone when in the video mode.

Łukasz Zemczak of Canonical finally confirmed yesterday (April 8) that the Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 has been finally released for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 devices.

Zemczak said, “Since it is Friday and we all hate Friday releases, we decided to play it safe and use phased upgrades procedure here as well.”

On the other hand, Marius Gripsgård, maintainer of the OnePlus One port of Ubuntu Touch has confirmed the availability of the OTA-10 update for the OnePlus One devices.

Mr. Gripsgård said, “Version 11 is the same as 10, the reason why it’s on 11 is because I have released versions with fixes.”

It means that if you have a OnePlus One Ubuntu device, you can update your device right now to the latest version 11. However, version 11 is same as the official OTA-10 except for some extra patches. Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 should have got the Ubuntu Touch OTA-10 notification by now and if you haven’t, you’ll get it anytime soon.
