- What hardware does Ubuntu Touch support? 14 answers
I am an old man who is interested in seeing the Ubuntu OS used more widely. I read the instructions for flashing the OS onto a Samsung Galaxy Nexus cell phone. I ordered such a phone. When it came I started to follow the instructions on this page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install?action=show&redirect=TouchInstallProcess I watched a couple of YouTube videos to guide me through the process. One video featured a young man who looked like he knew what he was talking about. He said that the Samsung phone had to be a "GSM" something, which the Verizon 4G model is not.
I have three questions:
Must the Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone indeed be a "GSM" in order to accept the Ubuntu OS?
If yes, could the instructions be made clearer to indicate this fact, as well as any other facts that civilians (as opposed to professional developers) might need to know in order to flash the OS onto a phone?
If yes again, does anyone want to buy a slightly used Samsung Galaxy Nexus Verizon 4G cell phone cheap?
