UBUNTU TOUCH v0.1 FOR i9100 ALPHA
KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS IS VERY VERY UNSTABLE AND MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE IF YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG!


This one has been build by @ bluefa1con so all the champagne & beer bottles goes to him. Is the same build as mines! I decided to release my version when I have most of the bugs fixed. HERE IS STILL PRESENT THE CHOPPY TEXT BUG! We think is caused by hardware-composition, we don't know right now.



Let's get started. First of all, WIPE YOUR DEVICE & FORMAT /SYSTEM, /CACHE, /PRELOAD! Then:

1. Download this build of Ubuntu Touch: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip
2. The both files from here: http://goo.im/devs/bluefa1con/ubuntutouch
3. Copy them to your internal / external memory. Note that dual-boot is not yet supported!
4. Wipe everything you can.
5. Install CM10.1 zip - DON'T REBOOT!
6. Flash quantal(...).zip file - AGAIN, DON'T REBOOT!
7. Finally, flash hdpi_overlay.zip and then you can reboot safely.
8. Enjoy!


Report any bugs here!


So far it looks stable over the UI. Perfomances are not so great because both of us we can't manage to get working all the 2-cores. HW acceleration is disabled because is very buggy also the audio. Wifi works, cellular + 3G also. It is not very useful right now but as far as this will get more and more updates, it will be very cool .


Note: DO NOT FLASH IT INTO OTHER VARIANTS OF i9100!


Thanks, I'll keep you updated.

Dear fellas,

Right now I'm doing a very beta test of my own build for Ubuntu Touch. So far it looks stable over the UI. Perfomances are not so great because I can't manage to get working all the 2-cores. HW acceleration is disabled because is very buggy also the audio. Wifi works, cellular + 3G also. It is not very useful right now but as far as this will get more and more updates, it will be very cool .


As soon as I finish with the final testing, I will upload the 3 ZIP files. Until that, prepare your phone and make a full BACKUP!

Note: I suggest to try it in dual-boot as I do and DO NOT FLASH IT INTO OTHER VARIANTS OF i9100!


Thanks, I'll keep you updated.

waiting for it will give it a try

Just a general question will ubuntu for phone switch to the desktop mode automatically as soon as it is docked to a monitor or does this have to be enabled on a phone by phone basis?
