Hey Fellow P930 owners,

Here are the files needed to get Ubuntu Touch to boot on our phones. The is a pre-alpha build and cannot be used for a daily ROM. I nor any of the involved sources take responsibility for problems, bricked devices or your cat's head exploding. If you do not know what to do with the following files do not go any further.

Phone look:


More detailed instruction will come when I have more time.

Here are the files:
Recovery: http://goo.im/devs/nexwave/p930/ubun...ICIAL-p930.zip
CM part: http://goo.im/devs/nexwave/p930/ubun...ICIAL-p930.img
Ubuntu Touch part: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip (Updated daily)

Install Instructions:
1. Have or get root on your phone.
2. Have or install a custom recovery. (TWRP, CWM and Ubuntu CWM all work)
3. Reboot to recovery.
4. Make a backup of your current ROM. (you will want to go back as not much works in the Ubuntu Touch preview at the moment)
5. Do all wipes. (cache, dalvik cache, data and system)
6. Flash CM part.
7. Flash Ubuntu Touch part.
8. Reboot and Enjoy! (It will take a minute or two before the ubuntu screen loads, be patient)

Working:
- WiFi
- Touch
- Display
- Power Button

Not working:
- Mobile Data
- Calling
- Bluetooth
- SDCard access
- Sound
- All hardware and capacitive buttons (except power button)

First off, great job man

But i was wondering how did you get it to boot, in my case, i was able to compile the ROM without errors, but when flashing the .zip, i would get past the two LG Logos and it would just keep bootlooping afterwards. I see you posted 3 files in your initial post, is there a special way to flash it, i guess i ll wait for the future instructions ... ... but i would still like to know if i was even close of having a working compiled ROM, still new to this kind of stuff hehe

Thanks

I wondered the same initially then I realized the only thing you missed was flashing the zip image from (I purposely split the http so you could see what file you are fetching, there are a lot of builds there ) http://
cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-touch-preview/daily-preinstalled/current/quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip

After flashing both zips it booted up for me... I wonder how well the rom would work with other kernel configurations.. You dont need the recovery.img

But for some reason my own build failed with the following in the logcat
Code:
E/linker  (  841): ics/linker.c:1072| ERROR: Library '/system/lib/libubuntu_application_api.so' not found
E/linker  (  878): ics/linker.c:1072| ERROR: Library '/system/lib/libubuntu_application_api.so' not found
E/linker  (  929): ics/linker.c:1072| ERROR: Library '/system/lib/libubuntu_application_api.so' not found
E/linker  (  937): ics/linker.c:1072| ERROR: Library '/system/lib/libubuntu_application_api.so' not found
E/linker  (  973): ics/linker.c:1072| ERROR: Library '/system/lib/libubuntu_application_api.so' not found
Nz

P.s.
After install there are a few features missing like
Unable to use the Phone,
browser,
texting..

In all it is pretty much just a small taste of what it could be - which does look to have potential - but in general a waste of time using it.

I'll share my github forks as soon as they are ready. That way you guys can see changes and send commits to make things better. We can work on this together as it evolves.

Question
Do Android apps work with this? Or do we have to get apps from Ubuntu?

No, android apps do not work. You need to use Ubuntu apps.

So my second compiled build actually worked ! All i needed was the phablet .zip file ! damn it !

Anyways thanks for clearing that out for me , im glad i got it to work, i ll be able to help you out on this build if needed

Alright for those wondering how to properly install this ROM (keep in mind this is a preview, nothing actually works, its only for show):

-Download those two files :

-Reboot in recovery

-FULL WIPE: Factory reset(wipe data), wipe cache, wipe dalvik cache, wipe system
-Install cm-10.1-ubuntu-touch-20130225-UNOFFICIAL-p930.zip
-Install daily-preinstalled/current/quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
-Reboot & enjoy the preview
