Default [Port]Ubuntu Touch [WIP] No data yet

I just got it booting on my M919 without adb using twrp recovery, but in no way did I make the breakthroughs. This is the link to JustSueMe's thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...2545627&page=1

And also his original thread posted in the 9505 forums http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2564187

http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...ouch-armhf.zip

instructions:

reboot to recovery
wipe all partitions
flash phablet in above link
flash trusty-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip [u can find on cdimages.ubuntu.com]
reboot phone to system
--
at this point youll have a black screen and no activity
plug phone into pc
grab this file : (70-jfltexx.rules) http://www.datafilehost.com/d/17d6dd77
now open terminal
$ su
$ adb push 70-jfltexx.rules /usr/lib/lxc-android-config/
$ reboot
phone will look like its doing nothing for a bit, but wait.
now it will boot back up like normal but you will have a ubuntu touch gui

BUGS:
no conectivity
no sound
edge swipe is small but works without case
camera
frame jumps to the right for some apps occasionally (unsure if thats on purpose of buggy... i vote buggy)
app crashing (maybe reason for camera crash?)
doesnt show imei
no sdcard mounted
terminal app doesnt even work so need to use adb to run commands

enjoy lol ... note alpha in title if anyone wants to complain ... also note only you are responsible for what happens to your device.

No computer? Download http://www.datafilehost.com/d/17d6dd77
Install Twrp recovery, follow directions as instructed above. When screen goes black, reboot into recovery, use the file manager in twrp and copy 70-jfltexx.rules to /data/ubuntu/usr/lib/lxc-android-config/ then chroot755 the file and reboot.

Fixes:
now have connectivity via reverse tether:
adb root
adb shell setprop sys.usb.config rndis,adb

ubuntu network manager will show that samsung android is connecting.
open network settings edit that connection and change auto DHCP to shared

run this command (logged into phone)

dhclient usb0 -v

now on phone open webbrowser or ping 8.8.8.8 to test connection

just got WIFI !

adb shell
insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko firmware_path=/system/etc/wifi/bcmdhd_sta.bin nvram_path=/system/etc/wifi/nvram_net.txt

now wifi will turn on

make it auto load at boot

touch userinit.sh
nano userinit.sh
add to the file :

-
#!/bin/bash
insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko firmware_path=/system/etc/wifi/bcmdhd_sta.bin nvram_path=/system/etc/wifi/nvram_net.txt

-
adb push userinit.sh /data/local/userinit.sh
adb shell
chmod +x /data/local/userinit.sh

Updates:

Sound Working with Headphones pluged in.

i9505 roms on m919 really arent ports. Only Because you really dont have to do anything.

Pretty cool tho. When its more stable/working I'd love to play around on it to check it out.

Thank you, but I have already included links to both threads at the top of the thread this is relevant to M919 owners though.
