** Work-In-Progress: Ubuntu Touch Preview is just that.. a PREVIEW. Do not complain about missing features, etc. The OS isn't nearly ready for primetime. **

Curious as to how the Ubuntu Touch Preview looks? Why not load it on your Droid Bionic and see for yourself.

Instructions:

1. Make a Titanium Backup and/or backup in recovery of your current Android (or just keep it on another rom-slot). This preview is fun to play with but not a replacement for something as developed as CM 10.1

2. Download the Bionic Mini-Android base for Ubuntu Touch and place it on your device:
[03/01] http://goo.im/devs/Hashcode/targa/ubuntu-phablet/ (use the newest one)

3. Download the latest Ubuntu Touch Preview Filesystem .zip from Ubuntu:
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip

If the above link is broken, use this link for a full listing of the current build files (download the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip .. soon to be raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip):
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...alled/current/

4. Reboot into Safestrap. Create a NEW 2GB ROM in the #4 slot.

IMPORTANT:
4a. Install the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip FIRST, and then the phablet-2013xxxx.zip SECOND.

5. Reboot and Enjoy

FIRST BOOT TAKES A LONG TIME. AND THERE'S NO BOOT ANIMATION. BE PATIENT (MAYBE 3-4 MINUTES).

WHAT WORKS:
  • Display
  • Touch screen
  • Wifi
  • Audio

WHAT DOESN'T WORK:

There's so much that is still being implemented into the Touch version of Ubuntu, that this list could get pretty long.
  • Barely any sensors other than touchscreen work. IE: no rotation, etc. Ubuntu WIP issue.
  • No HD codecs (still being worked on) Ubuntu WIP issue.
  • No screen timeout / auto blank -- be careful when walking away from the device. Need to press the power button to turn the screen off. Ubuntu WIP issue.

Re: [ROM] Ubuntu Touch Preview [03/01: Audio fix]
Whaaaaaaaat!? Ubuntu touch on the locked down Bionic!? I'm happy to see your still holding it down hear hash, even with the DNA being fully unlocked and s-off we don't have even 1/4 of the development that the bionic has let alone a nexus phone. Kudos brudda.

Is raring the latest build? Quantal seems downloads an empty zip, and it says it was last updated today. Thanks!

3. Download the latest Ubuntu Touch Preview Filesystem .zip from Ubuntu:

I had a little trouble installing. I created a 2 gig slot using #4 and on the first file I got an error message. The log went like this...

Installing update...
assert failed:getprop(ro.product.device) =="groupe
E: error in /sdcard/download/raring-pre-installed-armel+(status 7)
error flashing zip '/sdcard/download/raring-preinstall

Does anybody know what the problem could be? Bad download maybe? Thanks in advance!

Not having any luck with this on my Droid Bionic.
SS 3.11
2GB Slot on ROM#4
raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip (6/1/13)
phablet-20130412-cm-targa.zip

Installs fine, boots up to blank screen and just sits there...
I've let it sit for 30 minutes...It does nothing...
The hw keys are lit, and the screen is backlit.

What am I doing wrong?

TIA,
