Is there a Ubuntu Touch Build for Your Device?

A couple of months ago, Ubuntu Touch was unveiled for mobile devices to much hype and excitement. Along with the announcement, a handy porting guide and accompanying source code were introduced to the members of the dev community who were interested in testing the developers preview of the device. The porting process turned out to be somewhat similar to building a CM10.1-based Rom.

Fast forward 3 months and you have yourself an entire list of devices that have had a taste of Ubuntu Touch. Compiled by XDA Senior Member TingTingin, the list of 41 different devices include the familiar Nexus family of the 4, 7, 10 and Galaxy, the Xperia S and Neo V, the HTC EVO 4G and Sensation, and interestingly the Samsung Wave and Wave 2 that shipped with the Bada operating system.

All credit for the ports go to their respective developers, and it’s great to see the enthusiasm and altruism they have displayed with these works. Also please be aware that many of these ports require some pretty complicated processes to install successfully, especially for users who may be new to this.

So if you would like to check out which devices are supported, visit the compilation in the original post. After all, you may even find yours on the list. If you have any further questions regarding Ubuntu Touch, make sure to bring them up with the Ubuntu engineers at their Q&A.
