I haven't noticed any problems or side effects. That doesn't mean there are none and I don't recommend it. This is my play phone to see how Ubuntu Touch OS is progressing. Just thought I would let y'all know if anybody is feeling lucky.
I've also used the command posted here

At any rate, the device partitions match, once you edit the updater script for the proper asserts, it should work in theory. I'm gonna try this out

Well, it's a dirty port, but if anybody wants to try it out to get the feel, here goes.
1. install CyanogenMod 10.1
on your device (if not already installed)
2. wipe data/factory reset (Make backup first)
3. flash saucy-preinstalled-armel-i9100.zip
4. flash saucy-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
6. (optinal) Enable 3G data (link)
Remember: this is a [VERY] dirty port from the i9100. Nothing was changed except the updater script, and that was so that it wouldn't reject the i777 because (obviously) its not an i9100. That being said, keep this in mind: Some things will not work. Things such as the phone app. I could not make calls or compose an SMS. There is no cell data, however WiFi does work. I dont even know if step 6 in the directions above work to enable it. It might, perhaps, be an APN setting that I need to alter, though I doubt it as the CM10.1 base was from i777.
As soon as I get a build environment set back up, I'll try to build against CM's device tree for a native Ubuntu Touch that hopefully fixes the broken stuffs.
At any rate, enjoy.
