First off, this is for the expierenced users only. I will not help you out with this, and I will not fix any bugs you post. I will take care of this as I see it and as the code on Canonical's side develops.

REPEAT: I WILL NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR BUGS


What works:
Boots
Touchscreen

What does not work:
Sound
Wifi

To do:
Fix resolution

Device Tree
https://github.com/giveen/android_de...e/ubuntu_touch

Kernel Tree
https://github.com/giveen/kernel_del...e/ubuntu_touch

Build 3:
Boots!, thank you f69m here on xda

Step 1. Flash CM10.1 Beta 1 nvflash from the CM10.1 thread
Step 2. Boot into recovery, factory reset, then format data
Step 3. Flash Device specific flash -> https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0oz...it?usp=sharing
Step 4. Flash Ubuntu File -> http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-to...blet-armhf.zip
Step 4a. Reboot
Step 5. Download http://d-h.st/eFQ
Step 5a. adb push libc-2.15.so /data/ubuntu/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc-2.15.so
Step 6. adb reboot
Step 7. Run these commands
'adb shell'
'ubuntu_chroot shell'
'vi /usr/bin/ubuntu-session'
Find the "grouper" , move your cursor over to the 'g' and then press X, untill grouper is gone
Press ESC, then press I, and then type in "Streak7"
Do the same thing basically on "GRID_UNIT_PX=(adjust the number)"
Press ESC, then press : (<-colon)
Type in 'wq!" and press enter
type in "exit"
type in "reboot"
Set "export GRID_UNIT_PX=8" and "export QTWEBKIT_DPR=1.2"






You will need to keep this plugged in, as there is apps crashing and no power management feature yet, so battery burns quickly. The only thing you can do with it is interact with it via adb shell.

And I've narrowed it down to one error

Resolution settings should now be listed and they look great.

Re: [DEV ONLY]Ubuntu Touch for Dell Streak 7
This sounds pretty awesome. Great work giveen! I'm going to give this a go this weekend when I have some more time. Out of curiosity what kernel are you using? When a few of us ported desktop ubuntu to the nook color we were able to use a pre existing kernel(nookie froyo kernel I believe, though I'd have to dig through a few hard drives to be sure) which saved us some headaches in the beginning)

Keep it up, loving your work

There has been no update on this because I am waiting for a new SD card to arrive so I can flash stuff.

I plan on an update soon, yes. I know they made some changes, and I need to catch up on two months of notes.
