Ubuntu Touch already has a large list of devices that have a Port for Ubuntu Touch. I know that Ubuntu Touch uses the blobs from Cynogenmod or AOSP to support the devices. Cynogen mod is available for the HTC one M8. Is there a reason that an Ubuntu Touch port does not exists other than the work required to make the port? I would love to be able to dual boot Ubuntu and android on my phone. I have even thought about attempting to make the port myself. I would want to make sure there is not an obvious reason as to why one doesn't already exist first =).

There was once a port in progress, I believe that since all interest in Ubuntu touch has died so has any devs work on such port.https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices

Looks like the porting guide has finally bee updated.

It also looks like there is a port in progress for the M7, but it simply boots. No hardware functionality yet.
