LOL, that topic title is quite misleading. I though you already ported it yesterday. :P

 

Here's a place to start for anyone interested:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Porting

 

This is not something that I'm interested in doing myself. IMHO Ubuntu Touch is not currently even the leading 'real' Linux mobile OS - Sailfish OS is. Let's wait and see if/when they get something shipped on an actual device.

Hi, I'm just an user who like develop app for Ubuntu Touch and FirefoxOS (on my PC).. Anynone can port Ubuntu Touch if it's possible on a ZTE Open C / Kis3?

 

 

I've got the current ubuntu android source repo as i have been working on porting it to my moto xoom tablet, but there are some serious limitations for "non-supported" devices.  touchscreen implementation is a little different in ubuntu touch and requires some kernel modifications, and procedures for getting sensors to operate is still experimental at best and virtually impossible for most devices at this point.

 

just from the trouble i'm having with getting it working on my xoom, i'm going to say it would be less than worthwhile to even attempt it for the open-c--though the open-c already has a working 4.4 status, which the latest ubuntu touch underlying system is based on 4.3 so it is possible feat.

 

ubuntu touch is really only a viable options though when there are several people working together on development and when said device is a tablet.  ubuntu touch on is not something that interests me at all on a phone.

 

you could always download the source and try yourself :-)
