    This is a port of Ubuntu for Phones for the Xperia S.

    THIS IS VERY EXPERIMENTAL STUFF. NOTHING REALLY WORKS AS OF NOW. THIS IS MEANT FOR DEVS ONLY.

    It's based on my own sources and kernel. Those can be found at:
    https://github.com/OpenSEMC

    Also the sources for Ubuntu are at:
    http://phablet.ubuntu.com/gitweb


    PLEASE DO A NANDROID BACKUP BEFORE INSTALLING THIS ROM.

    THIS NEEDS AN UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER.

    Installation instructions:
    * Wipe data
    * Install the device specific part of Ubutnu
    * Install the generic Ubuntu part
    * Reboot
    * Enter the following commands:
    Code:
    adb root
    Code:
    adb shell
    Code:
    ubuntu_chroot shell
    Code:
    ubuntu-session
    --- Enjoy the testing! ---

    Download links:
    Device specific: http://goo.im/devs/RaymanFX/downloads/Ubuntu-Touch/ubuntu_quantal-nozomi-0.0.0.zip
    Generic: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-to...current/raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip


    Working:
    • Ubuntu Touch Quantal System
    • Touchscreen
    • Team Win Recovery Project (TWRP) - (Backup & Restore fixed)
    • WiFi

    Untested:
    • Audio
    • Bluetooth
    • Video
    • HWA
    • GPS
    • Mobile Data

    Not working:
    • RIL - Ubuntu related
    • Some apps - Ubuntu related
    • Lots more probably

    Information:
    • DO NOT POST BUGREPORTS! THIS IS NOT IN A PUBLIC TESTING STAGE!
    • The Ubuntu Touch system is currently in developer-preview state, just to give you an idea of how incomplete this is.
    • My build sources may be broken; either get along with it or wait for me to fix it.
    • I am the only one working on this. If anybody is capable of helping, PM me.

    Some general notes

    1) Do not flash any other kernel with this; there are no compatible ones as of now.
    2) This will NOT wipe your internal storage; all your media files and things on /sdcard are secure!
    3) There are random lockups bringing you to the lockscreen; you have to unlock again.
    4) In case you missed it: I am the official Ubuntu Touch developer responsible for the Xperia S. Intel: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/nozomi

    Developers only

    Bring down the source code for the Nozomi with the following command:
    Code:
    repo init -u git://github.com/OpenSEMC/android.git -b cm-10.1-ubuntu
    Code:
    repo sync

    Building the source:
    Code:
    . build/envsetup.sh
    Code:
    brunch nozomi

    some updates incoming: I finally managed to grab the correct ubuntu specific parts from git (thanks Evervolv!), so this should resolve some issues in the next build.

    Well, if you want anyone else than me to be the official developer of UTouch for the Nozomi, I'll happily let someone take over the project and offer my help and sources. But I have to make sure he is qualified for this first.

    I just have absolutely zero time at the moment, and I am rather concentrating on OpenSEMC.
