I have the Samsung Galaxy SII Straight Talk phone. I want to install Ubuntu Touch. The model is different from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/i9100

Should it still work with my phone?

No your phone model is SGH-S959G, that ROM is for the GT-i9100. –  Uri Herrera Jun 7 '13 at 19:53
    
They said the same thing about using an AJK kernel, but here I am using it. I've found that my phone model is for what ever reason mistaken for an AT&T phone even though it is clearly from straight talk. –  Tay Moore Jun 15 '13 at 12:32

If there is a Cyanogenmod 10.1 build for the GT-i9100, you (in theory) can run ubuntu touch. I believe what you have to do is first flash CM 10.1 (ubuntu is a chroot in CM) in recovery mode and then flash "raring-preinstalled-phablet-armhf.zip." Be sure to do a factory reset before wiping and you must a compatible recover such as TWRP or CWM.

**Hint: use the i777 build of CyanogenMod
