Introdution

Better explaination of Ubuntu OS and how it relates to us.

Ubuntu OS currently run on top of an Android "shell". The android layer contains the boot.img(kernel/ramdisk), initd, vendor specific drivers etc.. This is what first boots then the ubuntu file system is loaded within this Android "shell". This is why we need flash two zips to have it working(Android and Ubuntu). Ubuntu uses CM10.1 repos for the Android shell portion of the OS. This still works for us as we had official cm 10.1, though development wasn't long lived before moving to 10.2. There is an AOSP 4.4.2 branch Ubuntu is working on to maybe replace the CM based Android component, but it is currently less stable than the CM based. Hopefully the AOSP branch becomes more stable in the near future as the development for our device is active there.

Installation

Install from recovery:Quote:

1.

Make your Nandroid to return to

2.

Full Wipe

3.

Install geeb zip

4.

Install ubuntu zip - This is SLOW

5.

Reboot and try - There is no boot animation so just be patient.. it boots

Warning

Ok, I'm currently building my first try at e975. I do not guarantee it will work, I made changes to the kernel config based on differences between e970 and e975 from cyanogen. made some changes to the device repo also, just not sure what changes need to be made so not sure if i got them all.

if it doesn't boot i'll try again, see what else i can find.

*I cant test this myself, I think it is safe but I've never built for e975.*

Known issues

Not tested yet..

Redistributability

Are all parts of the image freely redistributable?
