[BOX=Note]Please note that this still is a work in progress which basically means it's a concept & idea until I get a working build.
When I get a booting build, please note that it is considered alpha and shouldn't be for daily use.
Also, Ubuntu Touch doesn't support CDMA as well as many other features so please note that when a build is ready.
Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview
for the Sprint Galaxy S II
The modified kernel and device tree are available on my GitHub, . It was modified from a base AOSP/CM10.1 device tree provided by many people including chris41g, sbrissen, and many others. The device proprietary blobs used were provided by TheMuppets GitHub. Thanks to the many contributions to the kernel, this wouldn't be possible without you guys.
Please note that this is still a Work-in-Progress and is considered a proof-of-concept until a working build is released. If you wish to try to port UbuntuTOUCH, please visit https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Porting.
Below is a list of what works in the preview and what doesn't, thanks to XDA-DEVELOPERS:
Question : What Works? Answer : As this is a Developer Build, dont expect much to work. The items that have been confirmed to work are;
Sound (over speakers)
WiFi (No WPS)
Camera (Front and Back)
Screen Brightness Controls
Speech Driven HUD (Yes, it works)
GSM Voice (No APN Settings)
The SideStage Seems to be working
Question : What Does Not Work? Answer : As this is a developer build, dont expect things to work properly, here are a few things that are not working
Audio Out via Headphones
Most Applications and Menus
Software Center (Note : You can install simple shell applications via apt-get install … once inside the chroot)
Most applications are placeholders
Auto Rotation (Or any rotation for that matter)
Random Crashes when swiping
Notifications (All of them are placeholders)
Most Applications that do function are web apps like m.gmail.com.
As I progress forward in this project, this post as well as many other posts by me may change.
