Default UBUNTU. The quest for it.

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.

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
