1st Step before doing something I 'll tell:
Do not install Ubuntu yet before I test the installer here.
2nd of all:
I will test in the next 3 days the boot.img images already uploaded.

3rd:
I will tell which boot.img is working or not.

4th
Code:
Unzip the installer, get vivid vervet file.

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img (the working file)

back to recovery (TWRP)

adb devices if not working - sudo adb kill-server ; sudo adb start-server;

adb devices

With the installer extracted

./Ultra-rootstock-installer system.img vividvervet.taz.gz file (of course armhf)

Instructions to build after I have pushed the repos into my personal github

Code:
sudo apt-get install phablet-tools android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \
  zip bzr curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev \
  libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \
  libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos \
  python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386 schedtool \
  g++-4.8-multilib

sudo apt-get install bzr git git-core lzop
pip install launchpadlib

Code:
git global --config user.name "$user"
git global --config user.email "user email"

mkdir /home/$user/ubuntu

phablet-dev-bootstrap -c ubuntu

cd ubuntu

git clone https://github.com/vic3t3chn0/kernel_amami.git kernel/sony/togari

source build/envsetup.sh

lunch aosp_c6833-eng

make -j cpu_thread

are the new files to test.

http://d-h.st/0S4]

it's the new build, already now built
I got the Ubuntu touch working through the adb root then adb shell.
I got in but now I got screwed the rom inside adb shell.

Updating the topic when I will have pics from the screen, not adb shell in. Perhaps, tomorrow adb shell screenshots here.

New kernel defconfig I think it's now the correctly file fix.

android terms now removed.

Compiling right now with those patches, I wish the boot.img fixed in the end. After that recovery.img will be fixed.
One at a time.

Hi there everyone of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra forum.

Wednesday for testing from myself is coming... After testing it the news will come...

It's coming...

Code:
sudo apt-get install phablet-tools android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot
sudo apt-get install git gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential \
  zip bzr curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev \
  libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 \
  libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 tofrodos \
  python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386 schedtool \
  g++-4.8-multilib

sudo apt-get install bzr git git-core lzop
pip install launchpadlib

My github vic3t3chn0 in Saturday will have the updated ubuntu Z Ultra repositories up.

Attempting testing from me will come out wednesday.

Even not tested yet. I've decided to test on Saturday and not tomorrow.
Here it is for everyone who wanted, and with a hurry to test the images and Ubuntu phone OS.

My updated link for this new way:
http://d-h.st/jIgS
BACK to android:
Code:
sudo fastboot flash boot /directory_back_android/boot.img

sudo fastboot reboot

For my images built:

Code:
sudo adb kill-server

sudo adb start-server

adb devices

adb reboot bootloader

sudo fastboot flash boot /directory_file/boot.img

sudo fastboot flash recovery /directory_file/recovery.img

sudo fastboot boot /directory_file/recovery.img

bzr branch lp:project-rootstock-ng

cd project-rootstock-ng

./rootstock-touch-install vivid-preinstalled-touch-armhf.tar.gz /directory_file/system.img

sudo fastboot flash recovery

For wednesday follow this code tag:
Code:
sudo adb kill-server

sudo adb start-server

adb devices

adb reboot bootloader

sudo fastboot flash boot boot.img

sudo fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

sudo fastboot boot out/target/product/togari/recovery.img

bzr branch lp:project-rootstock-ng

cd project-rootstock-ng

./rootstock-touch-install vivid-preinstalled-touch-armhf.tar.gz out/target/product/togari/system.img
sudo fastboot flash recovery


For the build:

I will release the new images for Sony Z Ultra fastboot mode very soon.

I will update the device folder to do the upper code for compliant and howto fix dtb boot.img fastboot.

It's coming...

ROM Link old:
http://d-h.st/NVOP

Please reply the issues even the working stuff here on this topic.

It's coming, after my flashing I'll tell more. For now, any question straight to Q&A please.

New dev-host files are coming too.

Use this link beneath for Working in Progress fixing zip flasher:
http://d-h.st/Im3K

It's only for case studying. It broke in the middle of the setting up all things.

Fixing can be used any boot.img I gave because it's ready to Ubuntu.
Fixing the zip will be an effort to give to our community an Ubuntu working Rom.

Thank You so much.


Don't forget to Donate. Thank You so much.

In Ubuntu desktop use this instructions:
sudo apt-get install wget

ROOTFS="vivid-preinstalled-touch-armhf.tar.gz"

wget -c "http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-touch/daily-preinstalled/current/$ROOTFS" -O "$OUT/$ROOTFS"

$ROOTSTOCK_DIR/rootstock-touch-install "$OUT/$ROOTFS" "$OUT/system.img"

Can I use Ubuntu desktop on VMware? Just connect my phone and type these four commad and reboot to system? Don't need to put other files to phone or computer? Thanks very much. Sorry for my poor English.

    Hi there everyone!

    http://d-h.st/MAs0

    The installer is :
    Code:
     https://github.com/vic3t3chn0/ubuntu_sony_installer

    It's the new zip version of Ubuntu. I'm going to try it tonight or tomorrow morning, then I reply all the functionalities.

    Although the instructions if everyone want to download the file that's fine with me.

    But it's better wait for tomorrow to see what I have to say.

    Thank You so much.

    Cheers.

    My attempt for Sony Z Ultra with Ubuntu phone or Ubuntu Touch came a bit effort in this last 3 days.

    Thank You so much.

    Cheers,
