THIS THREAD IS NOW OUTDATED. Page 17 and on contains information for Ubuntu Touch Saucy port.
NEW THREAD ON THE WAY.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2426924

What works. Wifi+ADB+Touch.
What doesn't work: Sound+Bluetooth. Bluetooth doesn't work yet in Ubuntu Touch, and Sound doesn't work with the Evervolv source. Camera.

Download these files.
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip Ubuntu Touch RootFS

Recovery Image.
http://gdurl.com/A0mz/download

Put on your SDCARD and install in ClockWorkMod. You know.. when you first turn on the tablet, moboot loads.. you should see a menu for clockwork recovery mod.

EDIT: Oh yeah.. First do a factory reset in recovery mod, THEN install the zip files... The factory reset formats the cm-cache and cm-data partitions.. There are 3 partitions. cm-cache cm-data cm-system. Factory reset formats cache and data.. When you install the first zip, it formats the system partition. Then after that install the RootFS.zip that you downloaded from ubuntu... It extracts the RootFS to the cm-data partition, that you formatted. So it should be clean.

Reboot.

Enjoy!

Oh yeah.. Onscreen Keyboard is not sized right. Seems to be an Ubuntu bug... If your fonts are wrong. .reboot.. check out /system/etc/init.d/90userinit for the stuff I added.

thanks to the usual guys. JCSullins, Evervolv, Tigeris and litz and ompx in ubuntu-touch on irc. The wifi fix was an idea I got while stuck in traffic. Can't believe it worked.
Oh yeah.. THANK YOU DR. MARBLE.

PS. I read somewhere you need at least 600MB of free space, AFTER you copy the files to the sdcard, for the extraction to go well...

He says: POST IT SOON. In other words: you have to wait until he finishes the porting.

No. It's Ubuntu Touch, but from what I have heard on XDA Developer T.V. (check 'em out on YouTube) it is based on CyanogenMod.

Re: HP Touchpad running Ubuntu Touch
I'm assuming the install process will be similar to The Nexus line, flash the core system then the phablet zip.
