The zip's flash with no problem (TWRP), but it just keeps booting into recovery. Maybe I'll try CWM for ****s and giggles. But if it doesn't work, I'm just going to drop the project and someone else can pick it up. Gotta get back to my college work.
If i can get WiFi working on Ubuntu for my macbook, then ill be starting my port tonight.

I talked to some Sprint/Verizon S3 users who ported as well and they both got the same thing . a non boot ROM.

If your signature says something like "Hit the thanks button if I've helped," I automatically assume you're here for "likes" and really care about imaginary internet points.
You're on the wrong site. Don't be that person. Its ridiculous.

So far only one person on a Verizon S3 has it booted up

He's in RootzWiki.. Let me fetch the link


Edit: http://rootzwiki.com/topic/39299-rom...hantom-022213/ [ROM][WIP]-Ubuntu-Touch-on-d2vzw-[Dev-Preview][Phantom]-[02/22/13]

Talk to him and see what he did to get it to boot up

From what I know so far. Ubuntu Touch only supports data on GSM - - soo....going by that...Technically we should be able to get data on D2ATT right???? RIGHT???? lol


Anyways - -Bravo! I'll be following you closely til you put up your build. I really wanna try this out. Buddy of mine with a Nexus 7 already has it - he said it's pretty cool. Yar

Finished porting last night haven't had a chance to test, so I'll let you know later today.

Anyone who is looking to use this as a daily driver is going to be very disappointed. None of the apps are fully functional and I don't think mobile data is going to work at all. Using it on my Nexus, I was able to look through the UI, open a few broswer pages ( but entering text into fields on the page seemed to only work for a few characters), and use the Gmail and Facebook app. The camera did not function, the side stage had not been implemented, 90% of the apps are simply icons on the desktop or a nonfunctional splash screen. This is intended for developers to get an idea of what they're developing their apps for. If you know what you're doing, you may be able to get a little more functionality out of it by making some changes via SSH/ADB, but it does not seem that there is even much you can do with that as of now. That being said, I was super excited to try it out on my Nexus 7 and only used it for about an hour before I reflashed Android back to it. About an hour was all I needed to do everything it had to offer. I do believe it has great potential and is something that can compete with Android, just at this point its nothing more than "This is how it might look."
