Canonical stated that a dual-core A9 processor is part of the minimum specs required for the OS.

Canonical is Ubuntu Touch developer :)

Yeah, they pulled that list of devices from the porting wiki page, which I added it to.

So we will be getting official ubuntu touch?

That's not really how they're doing things. My port is "official" if that makes you feel better.

Dadok, I know, I'm one of Ubuntu admins for Serbia, so I know what I'm talking... ;)

Then can you tell us when you'll rewrite the whole OS so it compiles for armv6? Thanks.

The base OS does compile for ARMv6. The Ubuntu image doesn't and won't.

this really looks nice Daz. Hope you can make this fly.

I've seen some great comments about it on the web. For those who don't know much about this yet, here's one glowing review from cnet. This guy even favours this to iOS.

PS: @ Dazzozo, will you post your progress on this in the G300 forum, or will you be starting a new thread elsewhere? I guessing because we are under Modaco/Device Specific/Android Phones, that the latter might be the case?

So when you're finished sampling Ubuntu you just reflash CWM and reload your Android back-up?

Has anyone flashed an android rom using the swapped recovery? Just wondering if it would work, as Paul obrian has this option for his modaco rom.

NO!

Don't do this, the ROM ALSO needs changes to mount the partitions the other way around. The recovery only helps with formatting to the right filesystem.

If only the original post had a guide... Shame on you, Dazzozo.

That doesn't tell you how to install a room though. You need a builder for that. J:D

Enabling WiFi on Ubuntu Touch:

  1. Save this in /data/local/userinit.sh
    #!/system/bin/sh
    
    insmod /system/lib/modules/cfg80211.ko
    
    insmod /system/lib/modules/dhd.ko firmware_path=/system/etc/fw_4330_b2.bin nvram_path=/system/etc/nvram_4330.txt
    
    
  2. make it executable
    chmod +x /data/local/userinit.sh[/code]



  3. Reboot

Now network applet will have a list of available WiFi networks

Hmm. I installed original repacked ROM with swapped recovery and everything work fine. Or it may cause troubles in the future?

Sweet, Ubuntu OS on a g300 :) :)

I'm quite happy with your 10.1 JB Rom Daz, but I'm looking forward to this release as well, as the Ubuntu os does look pretty good :)
