This is a port of Ubuntu for Phones for the Xperia T.

THIS IS VERY EXPERIMENTAL STUFF. NOTHING REALLY WORKS AS OF NOW. IT IS A HEAVY WIP.

It's based on the CM10.1 sources and kernel. Those can be found at:
https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...l_sony_msm8x60
https://github.com/CyanogenMod/andro...ny_blue-common
https://github.com/CyanogenMod/android_device_sony_mint

Also the sources for Ubuntu are at:
http://phablet.ubuntu.com/gitweb

I will be putting up my own modified sources soon.

This is nothing like Android at all. It's nowhere near being a daily either. YOU NEED ADB ACCESS BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN RUN UBUNTU.

PLEASE BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING THIS ROM.

THIS NEEDS AN UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER.

Installation instructions:
  1. Wipe data
  2. Install the device specific part of Ubutnu
  3. Install the generic Ubuntu part
  4. Reboot to a black screen
  5. Do adb root
  6. Do adb shell and then the following commands:
    • ubuntu_chroot shell
    • ubuntu-session
  7. Enjoy the testing!

Which branches did you build it off?

cm-10.1 or cm-10.1-test (talking about device specific repositories)

I know, but at this moment cm-10.1 is in a better stage than cm-10.1-test.

TBH the only thing worse in test than normal is RIL. And RIL is broken either way in Ubuntu so I thought - oh well...
