[Q] Ubuntu Touch on M7VZW?

I'm running MultiROM Manager in combination with TWRP to run CM11 nightly and CarbonROM. I downloaded the Ubuntu daily preinstalled .zip from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...alled/current/ and then flashed it and the flashing failed. So I downloaded the M7-ubuntu-conf.zip from http://d-h.st/nso (in accordance with the official forum) and then flashed it and then flashed the Ubuntu daily preinstalled again and it still didn't work. What am I doing wrong? I downloaded it from cdimage because that is a bit more up-to-date than the forum as cdimage has 14.10 Utopic Unicorn while the forum has 13.10 Saucy Salamander. Do I need to download the Saucy Salamander .zip from the forum in order for it to work? If so, can I update it to 14.10 (or at least 14.04 Trusty Tahr) like I did with Ubuntu desktop (downloaded 13.10 to my laptop and updated to 14.04 before 14.04's official release)?

Thanks!

As a general rule, if something does not explicitlly state it is designed to run on the Verizon version of the HTC One M7, then it probably will give you nothing but headaches if you attempt to install it on a Verizon-issued HTC One M7.

Stick to downloads offered in threads in this Forum.

If I edit build.prop (obviously backing it up first) and change all the instances of "m7vzw" (excluding in the CyanogenMod ROM name) to "m7" would it still work? If it wouldn't work, would I be able to change some sort of file inside TWRP to make it identify my phone as an m7 and not an m7vzw?

Come on! Faking your phone's ID might enable you get past some ID-ch. ecking by an installation script, but neither the software nor the hardware will be altered to be compatible one with the other. All you will accomplish is putting lipstick on a pig.

"lipstick on a pig" lol I haven't heard that one before. Anyway, is there a Ubuntu Touch M7VZW ROM out there and if not, could I alter the ROM to install on my phone? Clearly it won't be perfect, as not even the M7 ROM at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/M7 is perfect.

If you're a developer, go ahead and modify some ROM to suit the M7VZW's requirements. If you aren't, then delve into the score of ROMs already offered in this Forum.

The only Ubuntu Touch you'll find that sort of works on the Verizon m7, is located here.

I have still been working on it but i have had many issues that are taking time to resolved but marked it as abandoned as i do not have much time to work on it so it will be awhile probably wont be stable until end of year.

If what you're trying to install (aside from an app) does not specifically say it is valid for the Verizon edition of the HTC One (aka m7vzw), you'd best assume it ain't gonna work.
