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

THIS IS VERY EXPERIMENTAL STUFF. NOTHING REALLY WORKS AS OF NOW. THIS IS MEANT FOR DEVS ONLY.

It's based on my own sources and kernel. Those can be found at:
https://github.com/OpenSEMC

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


PLEASE DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING THIS ROM.

THIS NEEDS AN UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER.

Installation instructions:
* Wipe data
* Install the device specific part of Ubutnu
* Install the generic Ubuntu part
* Reboot
* Enter the following commands:
Code:
adb root
Code:
adb shell
Code:
ubuntu_chroot shell
Code:
ubuntu-session
--- Enjoy the testing! ---

Screenshots:
Coming up

Download links:
Device specific: http://goo.im/devs/RaymanFX/download...zomi-0.0.0.zip
Generic: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip


Working:
  • Ubuntu Touch Quantal System
  • Touchscreen
  • Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) - (Backup & Restore fixed)
  • WiFi

Untested:
  • Audio
  • Bluetooth
  • Video
  • HWA
  • GPS
  • Mobile Data

Not working:
  • RIL - Ubuntu related
  • Some apps - Ubuntu related
  • Lots more probably

Information:
  • DO NOT POST BUGREPORTS! THIS IS NOT IN A PUBLIC TESTING STAGE!
  • The Ubuntu Touch system is currently in developer-preview state, just to give you an idea of how incomplete this is.
  • My build sources may be broken; either get along with it or wait for me to fix it.
  • I am the only one working on this. If anybody is capable of helping, PM me.

Post Some general notes
1) Do not flash any other kernel with this; there are no compatible ones as of now.
2) This will NOT wipe your internal storage; all your media files and things on /sdcard are secure!
3) There are random lockups bringing you to the lockscreen; you have to unlock again.
4) In case you missed it: I am the official Ubuntu Touch developer responsible for the Xperia S. Intel: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/nozomi
