I have followed the steps for turning my phone into an Ubuntu phone and I have hit a wall. I performed the step:

phablet-flash ubuntu-system --channel devel --bootstrap

And I received this message:

INFO:phablet-flash:Device detected as C5215 ERROR:phablet-flash:Unsupported device, autodetect fails device

Does this mean my phone is incapable of obtaining the Ubuntu OS? I have researched the matter on-line but I haven't been able to get passed this wall. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
