Porting information

Note

If you are looking for information on installing Ubuntu Touch on a supported device, or if you would like to check if your device is supported, please see this page.

This section will introduce you to some of the specifics of porting Ubuntu Touch to an Android device.

Before you begin, you’ll want to head over to the Halium porting guide and get your systemimage built without errors. Once you’re at the point of installing a rootfs, you can come back here.

Start at Building halium-boot if you’d like to install the UBports Ubuntu Touch 16.04 rootfs.
