Believe the code in question is here. But don't think its the sorta thing that's portable. Anyone try it as it is? Can't spot in on first glance but I take it that the build model is taken from the device at some point, I guess if we can spoof that and see how far it boots.

Re: Ubuntu Phone for the HTC HD2
Installed it on my gnexus today. It's nice but its just a preview . Almost nothing worked right. But it did get me excited!! Can't wait for the real deal now!

Canonical ask who has experience to help them to port Ubuntu Touch to new devices. Here's the link http://developer.ubuntu.com/2013/02/...to-new-levels/

Re: Ubuntu Phone for the HTC HD2
Ill be tackling this once I can get the source downloaded, so many people are trying to get it that its crashing their repo, and since its ~12gigs, it might take a little while lol

I've token the time to extract the Ubuntu Touch Nexus 4 Dev Preview core system and put it into a ext4 Image to make easier for people to see exactly what's installed and be able to configure it without having to fully install it.

You can find the Operating System Image here - www.ZenfulApps.com

Hi z3nful, I have been trying on and off all day to DL the image with varying degrees of success. The zip seems to have downloaded successfully but is only around 100mb (ranging from 79 to 130)(tried from chrome on pc and linux, and firefox). Any chance of a mirror? Thanks

Re: Ubuntu Phone for the HTC HD2
Thats odd, it downloaded good on my phone, Linux, and XP. here's a direct link to it that's not run through the file manager on the site, should work fine that way (still working out some bugs lol)

UbuntuTouch-DevPreview-Mako.ext4.zip

Thanks, that link worked first time

Ok I have extracted the image to sd on fat32 renamed it UbuntuTouch.ext4.img and put it in linux-files/system
The linload app manages to mount the image, but when i try to start vnc, i get
"bash: vncserver: command not found" in terminal after some other stuff, leaving me at the prompt.
I have tried to connect using other vnc viewers but no joy yet.
I have partitioned my 32gb card with 16gb fat32, 10gb ext4, 4gb ext4(empty) and 256mb linux swap. And ideally would like to use the 3rd partition for the image. Do i just put the UbuntuTouch.ext4.img file there and point to it with linload?
Thanks again
Edit; using tytung jb 1.3a on nativeSD

Re: Ubuntu Phone for the HTC HD2
The Touch preview doesn't have vnc install when you first download it, and from what I've seen looking around in it, there isn't a command to start up unity.

One thing you can try is to install vncserver, then see if you can get it to load an "ubuntu-session" from the xstartup file. I'm not sure if that will work though :/

I've almost got the source finished downloading, once thats done ill be trying for a working kernel to see if I can get this setup as its own rom

I will play around a bit more, but not sure how that works.
No worries though, as is preview.
Best of luck with it
