    [WIP] Ubuntu Touch for Thrive Development

    Well finally gave in and decided to try it. This is so far beyond alpha testing it's really not even funny, if you have no idea how to work Ubuntu, or want a fully working device, leave this one alone. Its NOT Android (technically speaking).

    For now I'm marking this a DEVELOPMENT thread, meaning posts should pertain to development for the time being.

    Change Log:

    Initial Build 3-04-13: None, first build.

    Build 4, 3-6-13:
    Work on WiFi
    Work on brightness being to be adjusted (maybe even auto working?)
    Work on a method to auto adjust the screen ratio so its not oversized like Build 3.
    Kernel remains the same as before.

    Build 5, 4.3.13:
    Updated sources
    More work on resolution issues
    Work on the cameras
    Kernel remains the same

    Build 6, 4.8.13:
    Updated sources
    Same work as before
    Uses the new and improved (is it new or is it existing and improved? HMMMMM) CM10.1 base.

    Bug List:

    No WiFi
    No Camera
    No HWA
    Doesn't wake up from sleep
    Screen ratio is way to big

    Untested:
    BT
    Audio
    GPS
    Anything else

    Instructions

    Download the ubuntu-touch-DATE-BUILD.zip
    Download the quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
    Reboot into recovery
    Make full nandroid backup
    Before flashing, VERIFY YOU ARE ON TWRP 2.3 OR HIGHER ONLY This is a 4.2 base
    Factory reset
    Install ubuntu-touch-DATE-BUILD.zip
    Install quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip
    IN THIS ORDER
    Wipe cache/dalvik cache (appears as button after flashing a zip, just tap that button)
    Reboot system

    It'll appear to be frozen on the glitched Toshiba screen, just leave it be, it'll start in a few minutes.

    Downloads:

    Build 3, 3.4.13 - initial build
    Build 4, 3.6.13
    Build 5, 4.3.13
    Build 6, 4.8.13

    NEEDED: http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tou...alled/current/ you must get the current version of quantal-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip. This changes so I won't link directly to the file.

    FAQ

    Q: Can I use my android apps on this?
    A: NO, this is NOT ANDROID, this is Ubuntu.

    Q: What apps are there to use?
    A: For the most part, none. I'm sure this will change quickly, though.

    Q: What works or doesn't work?
    A: This will be included in the change logs as things are fixed, otherwise the Bug List should be consulted.

    Q: How can I help?
    A: Get in here and get fixing!

    Q: If nothing even works, why did you build it?
    A: Because I can. Consider this a proof of concept. I was challenged, I accepted.

    Who's involved in the project?

    Thanks:
    Google
    Canonical
    Tybar for the base of the CM10 project so long ago and that's still evolving even here
    JBettcher for helping get the CM10 project going so long ago, his work on the kernel was invaluable
    Indest for helping in any way possible
    AmEv for donating the Core Quad and for always pushing for Ubuntu on the Thrive, he inspired this attempt.

    sick work pio.... just a thought, have you tried the Linux 4 Tegra driver packages from Nvidia's dev site? It comes with a 3.1 kernel and all the drivers and modules precompiled.
    Tablet: Toshiba Thrive 10.1" (CM10 thanks tybar, pio, and jbettcher)
    Phone: Cricket GS3 AOKP 4/15/13 @ 1.89GHz / Retired & Working LG Optimus C (CM7.2 - BobZhome) & Motorola Droid X (CM9 on .621 OTA)

    No real reason to, it runs on top of a minimal cm10.1, so its using all android stuff. And I think that's mote t30 stuff then t20, but may be worth looking into also.

    I actually researched the at105 t1016 has the Ventana chip in it. I would imagine it would probably be the easiest route and from what I saw on another forum, someone ported the 3.x Linux kernel to a Tegra 2 device and not just a lot of back porting.

    Edit:
    Honestly reading through the documentation for this, it seems risky. You have to flash a bootloader to boot the linux kernel properly with the ability to install the distro you choose anywhere, but it's still pretty straight forward. I'm going to read more into this....

    That is one reason I chose not to go that route but instead wait for Ubuntu Touch to come out instead. It's overly complicated and achieves little more then what Ubuntu Touch will in the end. I'm also not a kernel dev.

    Update: Build 3 and instructions are now available, if you're feeling brave, check it out.

    Life is better now that being a flasher doesn't involve public order infractions
