Working:

Code:
  • adb
  • Display
  • Touchscreen
  • WiFi
  • Sound
  • Video
  • Apps
Not working:

Code:
  • Rotation
  • Camera

NOTE: Ubuntu Touch itself is still under heavy development and I cannot list all the flaws it has, since that is daily changing.
Please be aware that applications may not work as expected but the scope of this project is only the porting, not the actual operating system!

FAQ
Quote:

* How to go back to stock?
Reboot into recovery. Wipe data/factory reset. Restore your backup. Reboot into flashmode and flash (with FlashTool) the kernel (kernel.sin only) from your .tft file (without wiping anything). Reboot.

* Installation stuck on "unpacking rootfs tarball to system-image ..."
Free up some space on the device.

I really hope to see this on our tablet, looks very promising, also a dual boot for this would be amazing. Thank you, and enjoy your new tablet Z.

I will build for both versions, but I can only test the device variant I receive, so I hope both will work.
The images are ready, but I won't upload them without trying them out.

The variant we received is the WiFi version, so SGP311 and codenamed pollux_windy, I noticed you have pollux in the first post. Pollux kernels do not boot on pollux_windy and vice versa

FYI: You linked the CM unlocking instructions from pollux, not from pollux windy -> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/pollux_windy
The correct unlocking link for windy is: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_for_pollux_windy

cheers
