    ** Work-In-Progress: Ubuntu Touch Preview is just that.. a PREVIEW. Do not complain about missing features, etc. The OS isn't nearly ready for primetime. **

    Curious as to how the Ubuntu Touch Preview looks? Why not load it on your Droid 4 and see for yourself.

    Instructions:

    1. Make a Titanium Backup and/or backup in recovery of your current Android (or just keep it in a different rom slot). This preview is fun to play with but not a replacement for something as developed as CM 10.1

    2. Download the Bionic Mini-Android base for Ubuntu Touch and place it on your device:
    [03/01] Goo.im Downloads - Browsing ubuntu-phablet (use the newest one)

    3. Download the latest Ubuntu Touch Preview Filesystem .zip from Ubuntu:
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...blet-armhf.zip

    If the above link is broken, use this link for a full listing of the current build files (download the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip .. soon to be raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip):
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...alled/current/

    4. Reboot into Safestrap. Create a NEW 2GB ROM in the #4 slot.

    IMPORTANT:
    4a. Install the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip FIRST, and then the phablet-2013xxxx.zip SECOND.

    5. Reboot and Enjoy

    FIRST BOOT TAKES A LONG TIME. AND THERE'S NO BOOT ANIMATION. BE PATIENT (MAYBE 3-4 MINUTES).

    WHAT WORKS:

    • Display
    • Touch screen
    • Wifi
    • Audio


    WHAT DOESN'T WORK:

    There's so much that is still being implemented into the Touch version of Ubuntu, that this list could get pretty long.

    • Barely any sensors other than touchscreen work. IE: no rotation, etc. Ubuntu WIP issue.
    • No HD codecs (still being worked on) Ubuntu WIP issue.
    • No screen timeout / auto blank -- be careful when walking away from the device. Need to press the power button to turn the screen off. Ubuntu WIP issue.

    Thank you for porting this, however for some reason it wont boot on my Droid 4. I created the 2GB on ROM slot 4, and installed the files in the right order but when i try booting into it, my phone just vibrates and the backlight turns off and nothing happens. I then have to simulate a battery pull to get it to reboot. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    Did the same thing to me, but you gotta wait for like 5 minutes for it too fully boot. It was initializing the drivers I believe.

    Yep man, its all good.

    Not exactly functional though, and also remember if you leave the phone to shut off the screen through the power button since the screen timeout does not work.

    Also today when I get reset up I'll be making a script to remove all the fake data

    All right sweet, got it to work. Its pretty nice, switching apps is a little laggy but not too horrible. I cant wait until data works with this tho.

    I have it installed on my phone. I'm at the homescreen but that's it. Doesn't seem to do anything at all. I've waited and it just seems to do nothing.

    It finally started responding to touch. It's working now.

    Also uploaded a new build of the phablet android.zip which fixes audio. See the OP.
