** Work-In-Progress: 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 Motorola Razr and see for yourself.

Instructions:

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

2. Download the Motorola Razr Mini-Android base for Ubuntu Touch and place it on your device:
[03/01] (use the newest one)

3. Download the latest Ubuntu Touch Preview Filesystem . from Ubuntu:

If the above link is broken, use this link for a full listing of the current build (download the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip .. soon to be raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip):

4. Reboot into Safestrap. Create a NEW ROM in the #4 slot with the 2GB data option (important as it will not work with 1GB data partition option).

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
  • Wifi
  • Sound
  • Phone calls
  • SMS
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.
  • Cellular data -Ubuntu WIP
  • 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.

(Some of these describe how to install it on devices -- you can ignore those and follow the above)

I always wonder, if I unlock the bootloader, is it possible that I don't need a safestrap to install the zip file?

Unless you have the XT910 Developer edition I don't believe there is an unlock available.

Hey, I don't know what am I doing wrong, but I can't get it to boot too.

I've done all the steps: Create slot 4 with 2GB, install quantal and then phablet, and rebooted.

I left my phone all night long trying to boot, and nothing... Tried rebooting, but nothing aswell


I'm on a LATAM XT910 in ICS Kernel

To all those having trouble getting this to boot. After flashing quantal... I flashed the...ota.eng... file from Hascode's phablet folder on goo. Then it booted fine. In fact it only took about minute.. def want to see a full blown version

Yes you can install with any system version. The changes were mainly to support Ubuntu api changes.
