Hi

My goal is to build Ubuntu Touch for the Ideos X5 U8800. So far, I have only had trouble finding and setting up the source for a cm-10.1 build. Finally, I gave up and built cm-11 using Blefish's device source tree. Everything works just fine.

So the question is: Can Ubuntu Touch be built using cm-11, or is cm-10.1 the only option at the moment?

Best regards,
aribk

They switched to Android 4.4 some time ago. Don't know why they haven't updated the wiki yet.

Ubuntu is based on CM? Thougt the only thing in common is parts of the kernel??
So, it will more or less be able to port ubuntu to other devices just by changing kernel and baseband?

Libhybris is being utilized by Ubuntu for Devices, Sailfish, Open webOS and others to form a base layer compatibility with Android hardware drivers (above and beyond just the baseband [radio]). This is what gets the ports to work with Android hardware... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybris_(software)

The mainline efforts have focused on Nexus hardware and seem to have formed a consensus that CyanogenMod 10.x is the best jumping off point.
