Anytime if it can decrease the development time

EDIT:

i figure it out for download problem by changing
Code:
URL_TWRP_PATH_BASE="http://techerrata.com/file/twrp2/"
which was originally this one
Code:
URL_TWRP_PATH_BASE="http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/i9300"
and i change the curl in download file by wget -o $FILENAME $DOWNLOAD_URL
now i've got 0 error when downloading files.

Now i create the second branch for detect and flash samsung device on bootloader.

Whish me luck

I'll release a new version of the script tomorrow. I'm doing a lot of changes on it.

Nice to see someone working on a dualboot script

I wanted to try Ubuntu Touch on my SGS3 for a while but the one I found is outdated: http://forum.xda-developers.com/gala...uilds-t2315397

How is the script progress going? Does it install latest Ubuntu Touch next to currently installed rom?

Hi all,

I'm interested in this too!

So far, I'm mostly getting to know how things are and what to do.

Will post an update if I can make any progress (I'm even still running stock recovery/kernel/system though).

EDIT 1: could get on this a bit. As far as I could see from the *latest* oficial dualboot.sh the idea is to install CWM recovery for the device (I think 6.0.4.6 should be OK for our I9300) and then install SuperSU and the Ubuntu Installer.
Still don't know how the recovery partition and /data/ubuntu get populated though.

EDIT 2: looking at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/DualBootInstallation confirmed above statement and also got to know the Ubuntu Installer app is the "actual" installation responsible.
New questions:
1) What about it under Android<4.4? Is this a requirement for the Ubuntu Intaller APK only or something else imposes this?
2) How is it to get the Ubuntu's recovery.img and /data/system.img images for i9300? Any of you guys could share them for me to try a manual installation?

EDIT 3: Regarding second question above I think I should flash from CWM or TWRP astronfestmon's file:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/b3...-eng.pedro.zip
and then kinda "trusty-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip" image that I'm not able to find. Should I use this one instead:
http://releases.cdimage.ubuntu.com/u...h-armhf.tar.gz
