    Is there any possible way Ubuntu can be flashed on the elite. I heard you can flash it on the nexus 4

    If you're talking about Ubuntu touch, then the elite should be able to run it since we meet the "Entry level" requirements.

    iirc ubuntu touch requires cm10.1 (although i may be mistaken) in order to be built. I personally would jump at the chance at attempting it if I had access to all the required resources.

    Well since AOKP is 4.2.2 and Ubuntu touch does have a minimum of 4.2, I could attempt to port it to the Elite. No promises since the site says that ubuntu needs CM10.1 or AOSP 4.2 run.

    Currently setting up the build environment in order to get started, tomorrow of monday I can take a crack at it as long as my charger plays nice. If you get anything going let me know

    Alright so there's two zips involved, I know one of them is the OS itself, not sure about the other one.

    OS = trusty-preinstalled-touch-armel+mako.zip
    Other thing = trusty-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip

    It could be the other way around though, I'll know once I have both of them downloaded.

    Edit: Ok yeah. I have no idea what the hell is going on.
    Uh... yeah.
    I got nothing.

    The first one is a touch release for 'mako' which is the nexus 4.
    The second one is a touch release for armhf devices such as the nexus 7.

    I'm about to install ubuntu 14.04 on a second partition. It has updated sdk tools to help with building/porting, and I plan on making a couple apps for touch as well.

    Actually building it doesn't seem to be that hard.

    You could buy the the ZTE reef comes preinstalled with Ubuntu and it's only $60 at Walmart

    Multithreaded cleanup completed. May I remind folks to use the report button ([​IMG]) if there is any issue in a thread that need attention instead of carrying on an argument. Life is easier for all involved.

    Thank you.:)
