Phone Ubuntu for Android Custom ROM for Galaxy Nexus

*****Moderators: please move this over to a different Galaxy Nexus ROM dev area should it apply, but please leave a link to it under this Sub-forum.

I have created what is probably the first custom Android ROM that includes the files for Ubuntu internally, alongside the existing Android architecture. While this is not really a polished release, it has the ability to crash the phone, and requires some tweaking by devs and downloaders. However, for Galaxy Nexus owners (toro for now, soon to be other GNex devices also) this ROM (Rev 2) should boot up after removing one internal zip file. Go ahead to https://sites.google...site/andrevroot for the link about the project, and/or the bottom of this post for

Some things to note:
  • Comment back what you think about this project, and ROM.
  • Please keep all comments polite and on topic.
  • Donate, via bitcoin if you like, as it helps support us, and help create better, more advanced ROMs.
  • Please look through the whole site
  • Don't try this ROM if you are new to custom ROMs, try Cyanogenmod ROMs first so you know what you are doing.
  • I take no responsibility for screwing up your device in any way.
  • This version is heavily based upon CM10, to the point where it should even say the General CM10 stuff under Settings>About Device. Please do not beat me up over this, it is just because I wanted to get a simple pre-release out there.
  • This is licensed, please read the License agreement at the footer of my site, you are bound to its terms. Its Creative Commons, but still used.
  • Thank You for your time, have a nice day.
  • Above all, do not try to update the CM firmware, as you will lose the ubuntu files contained within!!!!!!

You got that right. The idea of running Ubuntu on my phone is pretty exciting.

Holy cow, dude this was awesome. I mean... me and this thing clicked instantly. As soon as it booted within 5-10 seconds I got through the lockscreen and then just started dozing through all the apps and swiping. It is a bit slow, not in particular though, probably as slow as Miui. This is just a dev preview, imagine the real thing and I didn't lose to much battery life within the span of 20 minutes. I wanted to keep this on my phone just to test but I couldn't. I'm just waiting for the real thing
