Hi all!

Development Site is here for the project:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/spyder

This release is not nearly ready for daily use,as It's just a preview like on the Nexus devices.It just got ported.

WHAT (Should) WORK:
1.Display
2.Touch
3.Wifi
4.Sound
5.SMS
6.Camera (for pictures,not sure about video) .
7.Calls (not for everybody i guess...) .

WHAT DOESN'T WORK:

1.There's so much that is still being implemented into the Touch version of Ubuntu, that this list could get pretty long.
2.Cellular data - Ubuntu Touch Issue
3.Almost no sensors support other than touchscreen work so no rotation so on - Ubuntu Touch issue.
4.No HD codecs (still being worked on) Ubuntu Touch issue.
5.No screen timeout / auto blank -- be careful when walking away from the device.
6.Need to press the power button to turn the screen off. Ubuntu Touch issue.
7.Many Random Issues.


So let's begin the tutorial :

1.Download the latest Motorola Razr lunch files for Ubuntu Touch and place it on you device memory.

2.Download the Ubuntu Touch Preview File System and place it on your device memory:

Part 1:http://d-h.st/I0E
Part 2:http://d-h.st/SQT

If you don't know how to extract from two parts rar just place the two parts in the same folder and extract the first rar , That's all.


3.Reboot into Safestrap (Please report if you were able to boot Ubuntu Touch Using Boot Menu Manager).
And create a new rom slot in slot number 4 with the 2GB data option (IT WON'T WORK WITH 1GB DATA PARTITION).


4.Install the raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip FIRST,and then the phablet-2013xxxx.zip SECOND.

5.Thats it,enloy .

Some Q&A:

Q.What kernal should i run?
A.Any kernal,since It's kexec based.Tested on ICS kernal and JB Kernal (Both tested by me).

Q.Does this work on BMM?
A.Not that I or anybody know,let us know if you succeed run it on BMM.

Q.Why Softkeys are not working?
A.Ubuntu Touch is based on Touchscreen experience only,no hardware buttons,this is why.

I tested it, it works as it's suposed to (W.I.P.). It can be very fun to play with, and remember, it does't have boot animation and the screen doesn't lock by itself, you have to press power button to lock it. A big thanks to DanielMod! And the Ubuntu community!

Cracked the screen on my Razr, and got a Note 2 a few months ago, downloading this now. Been wanting to try it, just not on my every day phone!

Edit: Ehhh... Maybe not. The phone won't power up after sitting in a drawer for a couple months. I guess it's mad at me.

I only tested it on ICS kernel, so I don't know if it works in another kernel.
