This is the port of Ubuntu Phone to the Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000

What works:
  • Wifi (fixed on 18-07)
  • GSM (only mobile connection)
  • Webbrowsing
  • Taking photos (fixed)
If you haveing trouble with GSM give it time to connect. If its still not working check this : https://plus.google.com/100264483712...ts/3o1tjYo9Ghx

CREDITS
thanks to chasmodo for

  • manifest additions
  • camera driver
  • runtime intermediates files
thanks to Gerrett for
  • the hint to remove the GalaxyNoteSettings from build
  • fixing the wifi issue

The short way:
Download, push to sdcard, reboot to recovery, do a backup, do a full wipe and flash(keep the order of the files)
  1. quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
  2. Ubuntu n7000 nightly build
The long way:
Here is the official Canonical's Porting Guide

here we have the cm nightlies from wich we take the binaries for the base system.

Now, I will set up my building system how described in the Guide (Since I've already a working Ubuntu 13.04 x64 PreAlpha installation, I'll use that as base)

Seting up the development environment

What is not in the guide:
Code:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install phablet-tools
sudo apt-get install bzr
sudo apt-get remove openjdk-7-jdk
sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk
So, on the console
(if there are german speaking people following, this is how you can kill the waiting time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_poaB9jLAc and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eMim3OV2cQE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-jbeV_kpaU have fun)
Code:
mkdir -p UbuntuTouch/GT-N7000   #at a location with 20 gigs of free space(yes, its a lot :D )
cd UbuntuTouch/GT-N7000

git config --global user.email "youremailforubuntu@something.com"   #needs this only once for
git config --global user.name "Your Name"

phablet-dev-bootstrap ./   #this will take a while, it will download all sources except the kernel if I understood right
Edit .repo/manifest.xml and add following at the same xml level where the other project tags are.
(First search for, maybe they are already in that file)

Code:

then again on console:
Code:
repo sync
Code:
adb devices   #just a short check to see if the connection is working, if it's in the list, go further, if not check whats the problem
. build/envsetup.sh
brunch cm_n7000-userdebug   #if everything is ok, this will take a while
put the zip you get in the output onto your sdcard, download saucy-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
reboot your n7000 into recovery mode, backup and flash first the preinstalled and then the build.

Have fun

You don't have to use cm, you can use AOSP.
You can even use Samsungs kernel source (I haven't bothered building the latest so no idea how good it is our not) and the binary blobs from the latest stock build.
I'm building it for one of my tablets at the mo from AOSP, using an old but working kernel.

First of all I'll use what the guide suggests. Playing games comes after.

For a device such as ours, don't think deviating from CM is a good idea

I was reading over the guide and would have to say there is a lot of set up involved
