Hi,

I've got Ubuntu Touch running on my Xoom, not perfectly. I have an LTE Xoom, but I'm building as if it is Wifi Only (I no longer have service on LTE).

Issues:
  • Font rendering in some places is unreadable.
  • Display settings have to be manually tweaked in /usr/bin/ubuntu-session to set GRID_UNIT_PX=10
  • Have not tested sound at all
  • Camera doesn't seem to work
  • Haven't tested GPS

Installation instructions:
Fixed:
  • I'm able to connect to my wifi and use the internet via an adb (ubuntu_chroot shell), but apps including the browser used from the device don't seem to have connectivity.

*This download is a daily snapshot, the latest version may or may not work, I've only tested using the version from 20130228.

PM with the link sent, when I get to 10 posts or get moderator approval, I'll edit the original post to include the download link.

Please keep me posted on how it goes. I'll try to document the steps I took to get it running soon (very minimal, just followed the official porting guide)

Re: Ubuntu Touch Xoom Port
Just finished building it as I have seen Xoom support removed from the wiki yesterday. Did you unset CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORKS to make apps work?

I did not unset CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORKS as it broke the build and I have not had time to investigate it further. Were you able to build with it unset? Is the networking in the apps working for you?

I comment several lines in the kernel source code so I can build it with the flag unset. I still can't fully boot Ubuntu Touch as the libraries used are not in the runtime path so I need to fix it. Will report here when I have time to work on it.

Thx dreamcwli and OP

This project sounds like it will be good for devs and enhanced users and it keeps the hopes of the xoom staying around for a few more years.

Keep up the work and give us hope.

Did you symlink libraries under /data/ubuntu/usr/lib/armeabihf to /system/lib to boot the system?
