This is the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview

You are flashing this at your own risk.
I am not responsible for anything that happens to your device
This is not a daily driver

What Works

-- Camera

Not Working

-- Wifi
-- Data
-- If you turn off the screen it will not turn back on - requires reboot

Not Tested

-- Calls and Messaging

This is a test build and is just something to play around with and have fun!!

Install Instructions --

1. Make a backup
2. Full wipe
3. Flash all 3 files in this order --

---->> 1. ubuntu-skyrocket.zip
---->> 2. quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip ---- Takes awhile to flash this file
---->> 3. hdpi_overlay.zip

4. Reboot -- No boot animation


Downloads --

File 1 -- http://d-h.st/owf -- ubuntu-skyrocket.zip

File 2 -- http://d-h.st/NsJ -- quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip

File 3 -- http://d-h.st/Bhq -- hdpi_overlay.zip


To return to Android --

Hard reboot into recovery, full wipe, restore backup

Re: [PREVIEW] - Ubuntu Phone OS
Do I have to download the 2nd file if I've already downloaded it from ubuntus website for my nexus 7? (the one with the word phablet in it)

If its the same file name it should work. I just got that file from the Ubuntu site and am uploading it to my devhost.

I thought about building this until I saw that there isn't even support for 3G data yet (for any device). That and most apps are non functional. I'll definitely start building this once the data issues get worked out upstream.
