Ubuntu 13.10 For Nexus 4
the pretty looking '<a href="https://mikeshouts.com/ubuntu-edge-dual-boot-smartphone/">Formula 1 of the smartphone</a> industry' might have failed to meet its astronomical goal when it went on Indiegogo, but that doesn't mean Ubuntu enthusiasts have to live without this awesome piece of gesture-heavy, Linux-based OS that is destined to unite the different devices we have today (or maybe, eventually).

the pretty looking ‘Formula 1 of the smartphone industry’ might have failed to meet its astronomical goal when it went on Indiegogo, but that doesn’t mean Ubuntu enthusiasts have to live without this awesome piece of gesture-heavy, Linux-based OS that is destined to unite the different devices we have today (or maybe, eventually). though the latter is yet to be a complete reality, users (and we do mean geeks, really) with either a Nexus 4 or GALAXY Nexus can start their Ubuntu experience with the Ubuntu 13.10 for smartphones (there’s a also desktop version, if you are keen). well, if you think you have what it takes (i.e for the better part, have the knack of messing with ROM and stuff) and is particularly intrigued by this upcoming platform, then go ahead and scutter down to the firm’s website for instructions on how to get the OS into your Android device.

needless to say, doing so is at your own risk and as far as we are concerned, we won’t be using our main handsets for diving into it. and since we are writing this as a ‘world platform’ it is only fair to say that no one can guarantee the outcome of the installation (that’s where the “knack of things” comes in). that’s not to say it won’t work – we are pretty sure it will perform as flawlessly as demoed, but just that we are little concerned about the radio part of the equation and that’s precisely why you don’t want to be using your workhorse phone to execute such a stunt. that’s basic. anyway, enjoy. i will be honest with you, i am pretty excited and am already in the process of sourcing for a second Nexus 4 for such an endeavor. why not wish me luck as well?
