This is a WIP Ubuntu DEV PREVIEW

Stuff IS broken this IS NOT a daily driver

Code:
#include 
/*
 * Your warranty is now void.
 *
 * I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please
 * do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this ROM
 * before flashing it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if
 * you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you.
 */
DOWNLOADS

The Quantal file

Do a nandroid backup!

Flash boot.img
Wipe
Flash the device specific base ub_evitareul-ota-eng.rob.zip in recovery
Flash the "generic" quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip in recovery. Get yourself a coffee 'cause this'll take a while.
Unplug USB if it's plugged
Reboot. You will boot to a black screen.
Connect USB
Open ADB and type the following commands


Code:
adb root
Code:
(adb kill-server)*
*Only if adb hangs. Do not issue this command if everything goes smoothly.
Code:
adb shell
Code:
ubuntu_chroot shell
Code:
su - phablet
Code:
ubuntu-session
What Works?

Touchscreen
Display
ADB

What Does Not Work?

Screen Brightness Controls
Automatic Brightness
GSM
CDMA Connections
3G/4G Data
WiFi
Internet Browser (No internet)
Camera
Video Player
Sound (over speakers)
Audio Out via Headphones
HDMI
Bluetooth
Most Applications and Menus
Charging Indicator
Software Center (Note : You can install simple shell applications via apt-get install … once inside the chroot)
Most applications are placeholders
MMS
SIM Storage
Auto Rotation (Or any rotation for that matter)
Notifications (All of them are placeholders)
Most Applications that do function are web apps like m.gmail.com.
NFC
Probably plenty of other stuff
