Thank you for taking your time to review Ubuntu Touch, but I think you are a bit too harsh. I know it has it's flaws, but for me it works quite well. This project is about porting Ubuntu Touch, not about making it an usable operating system (this is subjective), so I am more worried about if you report that WiFi is not working, or the touchscreen is not responsive, or if the audio is not working.
Things are constantly changing (I will push out a new update soon) and they might fix and break some things at the smae time. So I am really sorry that it crashes for you and you can't sign in to your Ubuntu One account, but this is to be expected. It's up to the guys at Ubuntu to fix all the issues and as I said, things change constantly, so tomorrow's build might be more stable.
About the alpha-beta issue: it's a beta because most things work (and by things I mean screen, adb, WiFi, sound, click apps - you can install and run them,not judging their quality)
Sorry for the late reply, but better late than never. I am sorry you took my comment the wrong way, your porting efforts are epic and I am glad that you are doing such a great job in it. So yes, I would agree that from a device driver perspective, the code is in beta quality.
However, and this is more about expectation handling, at least back then the entire project (not your code, Ubuntu Touch itself or in combination with your port) was very far away from being a usable operating system. That is perfectly fine and probably clear to those familiar with it, but as you can see by the many questions in this thread you may want to clarify that this is not for daily use.
It is as easy as noting under "Not working": "Ubuntu Touch itself is still under heavy development and I cannot list all the flaws it has here, 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".
Is this working for locked bootloader but rooted and with cwm? Just wondering,wasnt mentioned so totally clear in the beginning post.
Also, what about data? Does this work?
Would love to see this working on ma tab.. But dont really know if it will work on my tablet..
