Default Ubuntu Image Released!!! Instructions Inside

RELEASED!
PLEASE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE TRYING!
ALSO READ RELEASE NOTES: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/ReleaseNotes
NEXUS 4 does have some issues that might leave your phone inoperable unless you disassemble the back of the phone and unplug/plug the battery connector

Following Devices images are available:
Samsung Nexus Galaxy GSM - Maguro
Nexus 4 - Mako
Nexus 10 - Manta
Nexus 7 - Grouper



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


INSTRUCTION TO FLASH VIA FASTBOOT ON THEIR WEBSITE: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Instal...llInstructions

INSTRUCTIONS TO FLASH VIA TWRP or CWM:

1) Download the following 2 files FOR (Samsung Galaxy Nexus GSM):
-quantal-preinstalled-armel+maguro.zip
-quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
from here : Link -> http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...ntal/mwc-demo/

IMPORTANT: notice my instructions are only maguro which is the GSM Samsung Galaxy Nexus ....
NEXUS 4 users should be downloading and installing the MAKO and NOT the Maguro.
Nexus 10 download Manta
Nexus 7 download Grouper


2) Do Naroidbackup on Nexus

3) Factory Reset!

4) Flash the 2 files you downloaded for your device

5) let boot and enjoy


HOW TO GET BACK TO ANDROID:


Easy as flashing a rom... Just shut the phone down ( you will have to do a battery pull)
& go into recovery - & flash as usual... works perfectly.

What to expect after flashing?

For detailed information check the release notes

Shell and core applications
Connection to the GSM network (on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4)
Phone calls and SMS (on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4)

Pretty cool that they made a quick port. Hope it is good quality too. At least it doesn't seem to be that hard to port it to another phone. Just a few weeks ago the official statement was Galaxy Nexus GSM only. But the N4 is pretty open on the other hand that helps a lot.

Looking forward to it. Although I think I'm going to wait to see what people say about it before installing it. I've already seen a few places where it says that it isn't really a daily driver (although I wan't expecting any different at this point).

Android Central...

I heard it from Canonical first, here's the original announcement.

I'm very excited about this, I can't wait to be running Ubuntu. I'm trying to make some apps for it, practicing with Qt Creator and the Ubuntu SDK.

Wow, the UX looks so shiny! I cant wait for this thing to come out. With any luck the shell will be 1000x more responsive than desktop unity.

Too bad I have to wait for a Galaxy S3 port, or maybe I could just port it myself.
