I saw that Ubuntu Touch has been released and am wondering what the steps are in order to put it onto my Samsung Galaxy S3. I currently have an un-rooted GS3 running Jellybean and would love to get Ubuntu on it (especially if they can run side-by-side).

If anybody can help walk me through it, I'd be grateful. If there's a walkthrough somewhere online which I haven't been able to find yet, I'd be appreciative to get a link too.

Thank you very much!

It seems that there has been some work on it:… – andrewsomething Mar 3 '13 at 17:11

If you look you'll see that the RIL is not working listed as broke/not working. Which means you will have no phone functionality. Give it some time. It's a bit early. There was a write up about touch 1.0 on a nexus device. Looks great but there are some real probems still. Patience is a virtual.

You can see the status of all devices here:

As stated there for SGS III. It's not yet working but there is at least a contact. If you want you can contact him and check if there is anything you can help him with.
