Ubuntu Touch

First things first, this rom is not android based and this build is in pre-alpha stage, in short it's not meant to be your daily driver, you may face many bugs..

Ubuntu Touch (also known as Ubuntu Phone) is a mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system that was originally developed by Canonical Ltd. and is now being developed by the UBports community.

Code:
#include <std_disclaimer.h>

 * We are 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 us for messing up your device, we will laugh at you. Hard & a lot.

Issues

https://github.com/ubports/porting-n...-(xiaomi-mido)

Note: The reason I didn't fix these and post the ROM was because of demand by some users to try out the ROM, these issues will be fixed in the later builds


Instructions

It is STRONGLY recommended to fully wipe your device before flashing and please avoid restoring system apps and system data with Titanium Backup (or with any backup/restore app) as this can cause stability issues that are very hard to debug, restoring regular apps is fine though.
If you believe you know what you're doing - then fine, go ahead, but please don't complain if you experience any strange behavior.

How to flash for the first time:
(Again: Don't do it if you don't know!)

1. Boot to recovery (TWRP recommended).
2. Wipe the System, Cache, and Data (and format the data partition!).
3. Download the ROM and transfer it to your device.
4. Flash the ROM Zipfile.
5. Reboot your device.
6. A password prompt may come once its started and the password is "a" , you can change the password using the terminal, typing "passwd" and change the password (as in any Linux system)

Fantastic. Will be keeping my eye on this one. This project and PureOS are a refreshing break from the Android ecosystem.

It will show the error about data partition and also show no OS installed, did you try to reboot after flashing? Also do format and wipe system, data, dalvik and cache (not just wipe). I used twrp. The errors are normal, It should boot to Ubuntu touch
