Default [PORT] Ubuntu Touch for Nexus 5

Hi guys. :D

A few days ago, I've started the porting of Ubuntu Touch for Nexus 5 (hammerhead).

Changelog:

[SPOILER]*** 4/1/2013 - 17:57 ***

Solved kernel problems. Now there are complications in the ROM. The system does not start despite loads all the drivers. He stands on the bootanimation with frame drops and brightness that goes from low to maximum. Adb works. MTP drivers are detected but not loading.

*** 2/1/2013 - 18:53 ***

Kernel need some changes, in cyanogenmod_hammerhead_defconfig first:

Code:
CONFIG_SYSVIPC=y
CONFIG_NAMESPACES=y
CONFIG_UTS_NS=y
CONFIG_IPC_NS=y
CONFIG_USER_NS=y
CONFIG_PID_NS=y
CONFIG_NET_NS=y
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS_MOUNT=y
CONFIG_DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES=y
CONFIG_FSNOTIFY=y
CONFIG_DNOTIFY=y
CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER=y
CONFIG_FANOTIFY=y
CONFIG_FANOTIFY_ACCESS_PERMISSIONS=y
CONFIG_SWAP=y
# CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORK is not set
CONFIG_VT=y
CONFIG_VT_CONSOLE=y
and AppArmor second.

You can found some infos here: Touch/Porting - Ubuntu Wiki #kernel[/QUOTE]

I need some help on ROM now: Any of you wants to help me? Contact me in PM.

First Alpha coming when anyone help me to understand the problem.

Ubuntu touch has the official support for only Nexus 4 right?

In the wiki they have mentioned as other nexus devices should work *theoretically*

Can you post a logcat or dmesg while the system is booting?

Theoretically! It not boot because I have some trouble to repack kernel and create android-ramdisk.img for hammerhead. If you have some ideas for that, you are welcome.

Will Dual-Boot Android / Ubuntu be possible?

Off-Topic: I searched but find nothing. Is there already a project porting FirefoxOS?

I cannot reply you because I'm working for now only on Ubuntu Touch and Android. When Touch work perfectly, I'll work on FirefoxOS.
