A few days ago finally canonical confirmed the date that would be made available to the public an installable version of Ubuntu Mobile or Ubuntu Phone OS for Nexus products, and Canonical has arrived on time for the date. Has made available to the users of its operating system installers for all who want to experiment with them.
Install Ubuntu Phone OS on Galaxy Nexus Devices
It is available for the latest Nexus , namely Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and 10, although it is not at all a final or stable version. It is intended primarily for developers who want to program for this platform, not intended for the end user. If still you want to try, then I leave this tutorial to Install Ubuntu Phone OS on Galaxy Nexus Devices.
Configuring the Computer
First of all, prepare the computer programs necessary to install the OS on the terminal. To do this go to the terminal and add the repository by entering this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools
Then we will have to unburden and install programs. Go back to the Terminal and enter this
sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get install-tools phablet android-tools-android-tools adb-fastboot
Unlock the Terminal
If you’ve unlocked the bootloader, you can proceed to the next section
- With the terminal off, hold volume down, volume up and lit into booloader
- Connect the terminal to the computer by a cable USB
- Unlock the terminal and enter
sudo fastboot oem unlock
- Accept the terms and conditions to unlock
- Turn on the terminal by pressing the power button
- Start the terminal until the launch
- Starts the debug mode USB
- Connect the terminal to the computer with a cable USB
- Record the Android version of the terminal in order to reverse the process once installed.
Install the image in the Terminal
Enter this command. Note that it deletes all your information, so you have to make sure you have a backup
As it is not a final version, it may contains many errors and many will want to return to Android. If so, follow these steps
- Download the factory image of your phone from the repositories of Google
- Connect and turn on terminal
- Extract files and navigate to the directory where you have extracted
- Run these commands
adb reboot-bootloader. / Flash-all.sh
They may need root privileges
These are general instructions, but still recommend doing this only if you have sufficient knowledge , considering it will fail and is not suitable for the end user.
