[Center]Hello guys canonical finally released there new mobile phone OS developer edition don't expect this to replace android as it is in very early stages and is not intended for public consumption but this is xda and we flash everything be it alpha beta omega lol anyways let's begin

Flashing via cwm
This can also be done with twrp recovery

Restoring android
  • Go into recovery as shown above scroll to backup and restore
  • Select restore
You can also get rid of it by flashing any Rom

Re: [How to] Flash ubuntu on your phone
What works (according to canonical)
  • Shell and core applications
  • Connection to the GSM network
  • (on Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4)
  • Phone calls and SMS (on Galaxy
    Nexus and Nexus 4)
  • Networking via Wifi
  • Functional camera (front and
    back)
  • Device accessible through the
    Android debug Bridge tool
    (adb)

What doesn't work
  • 3G/4G Data
  • Audio Out via Headphones
  • HDMI
  • Bluetooth
  • Charging Indicator
  • Software Center (Note : You can
    install simple shell applications
    via apt-get install ... once inside
    the chroot)
  • Most applications are links I.e u scroll to gmail app and it opens a web browser to m. Gmail.com
  • MMS
  • CDMA Connections
  • SIM Storage
  • Auto Rotation (Or any rotation for
    that matter)
  • Crashes when swiping notifications sometimes

PHONE SLOW CLICK ME?

When you say wipes all data, does this mean I need to backup my /sdcard/ directory also (say, to my pc)? Or is a normal nandroid, where the backup is saved to the Nexus 4's /sdcard/ directory sufficient? Thanks.
