What Is Ubuntu Touch?
Ubuntu Touch is the touch-friendly mobile version of Ubuntu. This operating system is developed and maintained by UBports: An international community of passionate volunteers. This means Ubuntu Touch is 100% community driven and independent.


Ubuntu Touch - A Different Approach
Ubuntu Touch offers a completely different approach to using your smartphone or tablet than using other mainstream operating systems. The OS is built on Ubuntu, which provides us with a secure and stable base system used by millions of people across personal computers, servers, IoT devices and even the international space station.

The intuitive user interface allows you to access all of your phone's features by swiping from the edges of the screen to access your apps, tools and settings all with one hand and no on-screen buttons. It looks great and feels smooth.

How to install :

1- Download this ubuntu-touch-bullhead-v02.zip

2- Backup your data, boot, vendor partition (system not needed) if you want return back to your current rom​

3- Format data partition (format to remove any encryption setting)​

4- Copy ubuntu-touch-bullhead-v02.zip in internal storage of your phone​

5- install ubuntu-touch-bullhead-v02.zip like regular ROM​

6- reboot.​


Password system : 1111​

what work :

  • Touch Screen
  • Wifi
  • Sound
  • Camera (on first boot if system tell you for permission, just reboot phone)
  • Ril
  • GPS (tested with uNav)
What not work yet:

  • Bluetooth
  • Fingerprint

Going to give it a go. Hopefully things will go well.
Which recovery would you recommend? (or can I use any?)

Above all, thank you for your work and sharing.
Overall, the system works well and is stable.

Thank you, it seems to be working well (I don't plan to use the device for calling, more for IoT and it is much better than emulating linux in android).

Love your work sooo much! Only was able to find a nexus 5x instead of 5 and was considering return it when I find your post.

Hi thanks for the port. Installed fine and running well so far. It does take up space though and for the novice ROM installer there are a couple of steps required.

Download

Ubuntu Touch link as above (post1)
Android Pie as per post 12
TWRP for Bullhead

  1. Boot to bootloader (fastboot) - Make sure the bootloader is unlocked - If not unlock the bootloader, reboot to Android, set it up and reboot to bootloader.
  2. Flash the TWRP recovery
  3. Boot recovery and Backup if required the stuff in post1 ( backup all your data if the device is your daily driver)
  4. Format the data partition to EXT4 (if it is not already EXT4) in the wipe tool
  5. Connect to PC and put the Android Pie zip to the root of the device, i.e. not in a folder
  6. In TWRP install Android from Zip file
  7. Reboot to Android.
  8. Reboot to fastboot
  9. Install TWRP
  10. Change DATA partition to EXT4 in the advanced part of the wipe tool
  11. Wipe CACHE
  12. Copy the Ubuntu Touch zip file to the root of the device
  13. Install the zip file - leave the device alone while it is doing this
  14. When done reboot

Enjoy Ubuntu Touch on your Nexus 5X "Bullhead". This worked for me and is my experience. You do this at your own risk. The Nexus 5X is a pain for bootlooping due to a c**p design, like its predecessor, the Nexus 5.

Ensure the data partition is formatted to EXT4. When installing Android Pie, you must reboot and allow it to boot up to the home screen. Sometimes on other ROM's once I have changed the data partition to EXT4, I reboot to TWRP recovery.

It shouldn't do, but I used twrp-3.5.2_9-0-bullhead.img. It is important to install Android Pie.

I am not on social media. Start from installing Android Pie from the above download. Make sure you have fully booted in and enable developer options again, then try again.

Did you have a custom ROM on before, like LineageOS. A custom ROM sometimes will resize the partitions to non-stock and Ubuntu Touch requires stock partition sizes to install. If you have had a custom ROM installed, you will need to find out how to get the Nexus 5X back to stock partition sizes.
