Ubuntu Touch Port
Codename: P880

Pictures:

This will become the Official Ubuntu Touch thread for the LG Optimus 4x HD and I will update on this first post all links and instructions needed to flash the system on your phone. At the moment it is not advised that you install this on your device as we have problems getting it to boot! If you do try and install it your phone will need to be put into recovery and you will need to install the CyanogenMod again,

Problems/Status

* Tablet View and not Phone
* Phone has to be started from command line
* Telephone, WIFI, Sound does not work
* Sidestage makes apps rediculously small
* Gallery crashes on load
* Close terminal, screen blank.

Files (will be updated soon)

- CM Nightly Build -> Download Daily Build Here (from today)
- Ubuntu Touch -> Download Here

To see the desktop, you must type following in a terminal:

adb root
adb shell
ubuntu_chroot shell
su phablet
ubuntu-session
export `dbus-launch`
qml-phone-shell

Then you will see the progress.

Once finished this will be updated with a link to installation instructions. If there are any devs out there please let me know if you find any solutions to the problems and your name on this forum will be added to contributors below:

i'm not a developer,but i think that probably in ramdisk maybe there's a problem,can you run adb logcat command?

Thanks for all your responses.

I followed the Ubuntu Porting guide work for word.
I cant do adb logcat apart from in Recovery when I mount the system directory.

So thats all questions answered. I have an idea and will test it out in my Lunch Break which is to reflash the origanal system, unlock again and do the process again. I am hoping it will then work.

I will update you guys when I am done to tell you if it works or not.... Hope it does

Okay, guys.

The problem lies with the custom CM that is built with the Ubuntu Porting Guide. I re-done all and it was still blank with no adb logcat/shell etc... then I uploaded just the normal CM stuff for p880 and it worked. This MUST mean I overlooked something. I will go through it again step for step soon and see what I did wrong... Maybe ill delete even the build environment and start from scratch. Thanks for your patience guys, I want this on my phone just as the next guy. I work too so this I am doing when the managers not looking :P

I will hopefully have more for you soon.

If any of you would like to donate for the time I am using to get this working just click on donate. if not I dont mind but you never know until you ask

Regards

Ashley Johnson
