Canonical Ubuntu for Phones Porting Guide

The initial Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview was released for Nexus devices, but Canonical has now  provided a comprehensive porting tutorial.

Canonical needs its operating system to run on a variety of devices, but they can only concentrate on so many. This is where the community steps in and so far, they’ve done an amazing job, even if the operating system was launched only a couple of days ago. The new Ubuntu for Phones is running nicely on selected Nexus devices, but users have taken upon themselves to port the OS to new phones: Motorola XOOM, Galaxy Nexus (toro), Galaxy Nexus (toroplus), SGS I9000, HTC One XL, HTC One X+, Sony Xperia T, SGS III, Huawei Ascend G300, VZ SGSIII, ATT SGSIII, SGS GT-I9000, Samsung Galaxy Note II, and SGS II.

As you can see, very soon the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview will be working on a sleuth of new devices. If you are interested in porting the OS to a device that’s not in this list or if you want to contribute, just check the official Touch Developer Preview Porting Guide.
