Okay so, i accidently received two Moto G's from the Google gods. I have seen nothing about ubuntu being made for the G,so here i go..trying to port it myself.I have a good amount of experience with flashing and unbricking devices, as well as a lot of experience with ubuntu. If theres a more skilled developer who would be happy to answer some of my questions.. id love that.


This is my first custom ANYTHING when it comes to android.


Heres what i plan on doing..

Following the proper guide:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Porting#General

Using the CM11 souce code from here:

https://github.com/razrqcom-dev-team

And im currently a Xubuntu 64 bit virtual machine for development.


As this may be a very daunting task for me, who has never tackled something like this before..


IS THERE ANYTHING else i need?


A development thread will be created when i have some progress to talk about.



PHONE ON THE LEFT: BeanStalk 4.4.2

PHONE ON THE RIGHT: JellyBean Stock 4.3 UNROOTED

This would be amazing if we can get this working. Also, you may want to contact Wesnoth. He got Ubuntu running on the Nook HD+

Wouldn't you rather try to install Ubuntu mobile ? I heard they have some sort of dual boot method ready to go.... Idk you should try that.

Ubuntu touch is based on android, so its a stretch, but technically, its in the right place.

I'll be watching this closely. Cant help unfortunately since i never bothered to learn anything beyond WinMo. But good luck with the project.

He means this doesn't belong here because there's no actual development. Just a picture of 2 moto gs and a little speech
