UPDATE:
I have switched to UbuntuCAF sources, and now i am having continous reboots. Sorry for slow progress but there is very little support from community so fixing issues is taking lot of time. Nevertheless, i am slowly growing close as now i have last_kmsg. Happy New Year!

Hello. I am porting Ubuntu Touch to our beloved Redmi Note 4G. The work is still in progress and as of now the build is fine and kernel config seems to work to some extent. Recovery works fine but the device is stuck at boot image and i can't get adb to detect device so debugging is hard right now. But nevertheless, i am continuously learning Ubuntu Touch boot process (which is pretty different from regular Android booting. For eg: the ubuntu loads from ubuntu touch system.img which is on /data partition and whopping 1.95 GB instead from /system partition). I am sure i will have great news soon.

Thanks.

P.S: If you know about UT booting process (initramfs and initrd specifically), please help. Thanks
