Tested on D415!

Just got done testing this on the T-Mobile D415 like I promised and I can confirm that it works! Installation went pretty smooth and it has the same bugs as the other versions. Keep up the good work but for now I’m going back to android.

Just tested it on my D415 and it works fine but I flashed back to Android. When you update next can you make a post so that it bumps and indicates an update in the forums?

Editing the post doesn't bump the thread? I prefer editing the first post to make sure all information is in the single place.

You was kinda rude, the developer posted a warning clearly in the first page of this thread.

Warning (By the way, this is actually copied from somewhere else, and I won't actually laugh at you if your device bricks. If your device really bricks, I will help you as much as possible. )

Don't down the developer work, This is your choice only.... Take responsibility :)

Keep working at it:) you've get it :good:

these people are all the same,do what they do not know and then blame the devs.

Calm down, please. One may just be under stress. I'm here to solve any problems that may occur, even one doesn't understand what happens. One just have to work with me to find out what's problem.
At least, if one doesn't understand the instruction, I'll know that my instruction isn't clear enough, and will edit that accordingly.

After 3 loooong days of trial and error, I finally have this running on my D415. It's running rather smoothly so far. Haven't ran into any major bugs. Will update if anything happens! I appreciate all your work.

Edit: Played around with it a bit, ended up getting transmission web interface running and set up pretty much a torrent box with it lol. Pretty cool that it has basically has a full ubuntu installation that it's built on. Ultimately ended up getting bored with it. Seems like the volume control in some apps was a bit wonky. Would jump to random intervals both ways when trying to adjust. Probably has less to do with the build itself and more the source. Flashing back to android now. Thanks for all your hard work to get this up and running on our devices. I've always wanted to try this OS out, but never had a supported device.

Just a quick reminder to everybody.

This is NO Customer service to whine, the OP spend time to work on something and share it for FREE so you can have a better experience with your phone.

He doesn't own anything to anyone and he will post whenever he wants. So, If I come again here and see more negative posts you will be infracted and banned from XDA.

Please, continue on topic.

Super fan of Ubuntu myself, and use it at home primarily :) Installing now :D I'll let you know what I think, since I haven't played with it before. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Thanks for this!
EDIT: Do we -HAVE- to use a KDZ or can we simply use the ubuntu recovery to flash TWRP and format device/flash android from there?

    Update 30 October 2016: I'm sorry for very long delay. Being a university student make my free time lower considerably. Anyway, new device tarball is released in stable and rc-proposed channel. This version mostly contains minor fixes, but more importantly, this includes fixes for some famous vulnerability, including the Quadrooter and dirty CoW vulnerabilities. Go to "System Settings" to get your update, or follow instructions below if you haven't update your phone since 9 January 2016.
    I still ship experimental fixes in rc-proposed that may freeze your phone when the screen is off. If this matters to you, you may consider using stable channel for now, but that has pretty bad power consumption (but that still means about one day of light usage). Also, there is known bug about mobile network not usable on some network that affects all channels.
    Oh, and for those stay on absolute bleeding edge on devel-proposed channel, I currently don't have enough time to test that. So, no release to devel-proposed just yet. Sorry!

    Introduction
    This is a port of Ubuntu touch to LG L90 Dual and all L90 models. (See below for tested devices.) Basic functionalities work, but there're still some rough edges all around. It's stable enough to use daily, and I personally use it on my phone every day. If you're tired of Android, you may want to give Ubuntu touch a try.

    Tested device
    This doesn't mean other devices aren't supported. If your device is labeled as "L90" (or can run Cyanogenmod for LG L90), you can give this a try.
    • LG L90 Dual (D410) (My device :) )
    • LG L90 D405n (single card) (Thanks, keturidu!)
    • LG Optimus L90 D415 (T-Mobile variant) (Thanks, JamesB3)

    What's working/not working
    Note that this is tested using rc-proposed channel.
    • Screen: Works
    • Touch: Works
    • Audio: Works
    • Screen rotation: Works
    • Vibration: Works
    • Camera: Stil picture works for both camera. But video recording doesn't work for the front camera.
    • Mobile Phone: Works for both SIM, but please see "Bugs and workarounds" below for info about 3G slot and data connection.
    • Wifi: Works
    • Video playback: Works
    • GPS: Works.*
    • Bluetooth: Works, but on/off doesn't.
    *Do note that Wi-Fi-assisted location isn't available as it's licensed for the official devices only.

    Information about device tarball and channel selection (obsolete)
    Now, you don't have to worry about correct device tarball anymore. You just type in correct channels in the command, and the flashing software will get the correct files for you. You can find out more about Ubuntu touch channels at https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/start/ubuntu-for-devices/image-channels/. If you're in doubt, I recommend you to use stable channel.

    How to install/upgrade
    Installing for the first time (updated):

    The easiest way to install it is using ubuntu-device-flash. All of your personal data will be deleted. Make sure you backup everything important before install.
    You have to root your device and unlock device's bootloader. This forum has a good tutorial on that.
    For rooting, I recommend http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-l90/general/guide-root-l90-varients-updates-t2928364. If that doesn't work, try http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2732311. This guide is guaranteed to work.
    For unlocking bootloader, I recommend http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-l90/general/guide-guide-to-unlocking-bootloader-l90-t2852917
    Also, you'll need an Ubuntu (virtual) machine.
    If your device has been running Lolipop, you may have to flash Kitkat-based bootstack for your device (http://forum.xda-developers.com/lg-l90/development/bootstack-kk-l-l90-t3118632). Make sure you know exact phone model (Dxxx__).
    1. Follow the instruction for preparing your desktop in this link.
    2. Select channel (see information about selection above). Don't download device tarball. The flashing software will get it for you.
    3. Enable ADB for your device. I won't teach you here, but, again, this forum has a good tutorial about that.
    4. Plug your device into your computer. Then, put the device in fastboot mode by running the following command:
      Code:
      adb shell su -c 'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot bs=16 count=1'
      adb reboot
      The first command will wipe the first 16 bytes of the boot partition. So, when the device reboot, it'll boot into fastboot mode as the boot partition is broken. Don't worry, it'll be flashed by Ubuntu Touch anyway.
    5. When the device is in fastboot mode, run the following command:
      Code:
      sudo ubuntu-device-flash --server http://system-image.ubports.com/ touch --channel ubuntu-touch/{selected channel} --device w7 --bootstrap --wipe
      There maybe some trouble flashing recovery. If that happen, re-plug the USB chord and try again. You'll see a lot of text and then purple recovery screen. At this point, the computer will push the files into your device. Don't unplug your USB chord until the device reboot again with big Ubuntu logo spinning. Wait until the device reboot into Ubuntu Touch, and, viola, Ubuntu Touch is installed!
    Upgrading your device or switch channel (updated):
    If you've updated your device with new instruction at least once (since 9 January 2016) and just want to update the device tarball, just go to "System settings" on your device to get your update. But if you've never updated with the new instruction, read on.
    1. Enable developer mode on the device by going to System Settings > About this phone > Developer mode. If you don't have a passcode for your device, set it now by pressing Lock security. Then, enable developer mode by pressing at the check.
    2. Plug your device into the computer, unlock your device (this is important) and run:
      Code:
      ubuntu-device-flash --server http://system-image.ubports.com/ touch --channel ubports-touch/15.04/stable
    Don't unplug your USB chord until the device reboot again with big Ubuntu logo spinning.

    Flash different (Android-based) recovery:

    Ubuntu recovery can't be used to flash Android-recovery-format ZIP file. If you want to go back to Android using backed up file or ZIP file, you'll need custom Android-based recoveries, such as TWRP or CWM. You'll need raw disk image (IMG file) for this. Run the following command in terminal:
    Code:
    adb reboot recovery
    # wait for recovery to appear
    adb push {recovery image name}.img /cache
    adb shell dd if=/cache/{recovery image name}.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
    adb reboot recovery

    Download & Source code
    You don't need to download device tarball manually anymore as flashing software will deals that for you. But if you want, you can download device-specific tarball using --download-only flag with ubuntu-device-flash. Be warned that you can't flash that image directly because updater in recovery image won't trust the signature.

    17 March 2015:
    • Partially fix camera. It can take a still picture, but cannot record video.
    • Fix the problem about GPG signature properly. The hack is no longer needed.

    Bugs and workarounds
    Note that this list is based on rc-proposed channel and stable-based device tarball.
    • At boot, the device may freezes and restarts itself. This is due to the Wi-Fi system and I'm investigating this issue. This is due to fatal subsystem failure in the kernel. I've reduced possibility for Wi-FI subsystem (this is the most common failure), but this may still happen but at the lower rate.
    • If Wi-Fi list doesn't update during the day, turn Wi-Fi off and on.
    • Turning Wi-Fi on and off currently doesn't work. (Note that while you can turn Wi-Fi on-off in system settings, the Wi-Fi chip will be not turned off.)
    • If you're using rc-proposed channel, you may experience lockup when you're trying to wake the phone up from sleep. Currently, there's no fix yet, but if you can't live with it, use stable channel instead.
    • If you're using some mobile provider, your phone will not be able to detect SIM card. The fix is being developed. (If you're curious, it's about comunication between RILD and oFono and how your SIM card is programed.)
    Fixed or disappeared problem:
    • Camera will stop working after you bring camera app from suspended state. Workaround: bring app back to suspend state and bring back again. This can be done by swiping from left edge. This seems not be the case now.
    • Sometime, the device may seems freeze because an app is crash. This seems to be the problem in graphic subsystem. The system may becomes responsive again after seconds, but if it takes too long, just restart the phone. This seems not be the case now.
    • Sometime (at boot or sometime after), Wi-Fi stops working. This can be noticed by having Wi-Fi network list not updated. Fixed by pseudo-on/off fix.
    • Second One or both SIM slots may stop working at some boot. Simple rebooting should fix it. You may have to reboot multiple times. Seems to be disappear.
    • 3G slot selection doesn't work when there's only 1 SIM card. Workaround: use another SIM slot. (Fix released)
    • Data connection will work with only 1 of the slots (the one you most recently used before flashing Ubuntu touch. Don't worry, if you can't remember you van try them both). Workaround: put the SIM card with a data plan in another SIM slot. If you happened to have only 1 SIM and the slot that data works is different from the slot with 3G capability, I recommend you to temporary borrow another SIM card from your friend so that you can change 3G slot. change 2G slot in system settings. Fix accepted and released.
