Several days ago, Ubuntu 13.10 was released for Desktops, Servers, Phones, etc. On the Ubuntu website, Ubuntu for Phones is listed as officially available for the GSM Galaxy Nexus (codenames
yakju) and the Nexus 4.
The main installation process is for Linux only. If you scroll down the site you will find under the section "Further Information" a link to -> "Manual download and installation instructions".
If you follow the link you will be redirected to the Ubuntu Wiki page for for Ubuntu Touch. Here there is a list of supported devices, which in addition to the above mentioned devices, includes the Nexus 7 2012 and Nexus 10.
So I am looking for
.img files that I can flash with
fastboot. On the wiki site there is a section called "Manual Download & Installation" which contains a link to a download site where there are
.zip files. These files are for13.10 and where updated 17-Oct-2013.
So, what is the difference between Ubuntu for Phones and Ubuntu Touch, and why does the official Ubuntu website not have installation instructions
.img files that could be used with
fastboo on Windows? I can set up a Ubuntu VM, but many people can't.
