Default [ROM] Ubuntu Developer Preview for Galaxy S

Ubuntu Developer Preview came out today and I decided to play around with it a little. It's based on CM, so it's a fairly easy port to get the base feature working, but many things do not work.

Note that this is a one-shot and there will be no updates (maybe until it becomes more than a developer preview, but no promise!)
Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
All sources are available from Ubuntu's and CyanogenMod repositories. All other patches will be listed here.

What works? Doesn't work?
Works
  1. Basic UI
  2. Wi-Fi
  3. Camera

Doesn't work
  1. GSM and data (need modification in ubuntu ril layer)
  2. /sdcard access
  3. Audio and media decoding?

Installation

Make sure you are on CM10/CM10.1 before installing this.
  1. Reboot into Recovery
  2. Do a Nandroid backup!
  3. WIPE (wipe data/factory reset) This is required or you won't have enough space on /data and install will silently fail
  4. Flash http://goo.im/devs/pawitp/galaxysmtd...d-20130223.zip
  5. Flash http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip
  6. Flash http://goo.im/devs/pawitp/galaxysmtd...x-20130223.zip
  7. Reboot

Also read https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/ReleaseNotes

Uninstallation (i.e. I want my Android back!)
  1. Reboot into Recovery
  2. Restore your Nandroid backup OR flash CM + data wipe
  3. Reboot

Reporting Bugs

THIS IS A DEVELOPER PREVIEW AND BUG REPORTS WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED. However, if you are having problems, you may post in this thread and some people might attend to it. A logcat might also be useful.
