Greetings Masters of UBUNTU. I write to see if is there any way to install a stable version of Ubuntu Phone or ubuntu touch on a device not supported?

The device is a dual sim LG Optimus L5, specifically LG-E615 with a forced android ROM. Currently not starting with this system (stopped working) and is a device that I do not want to try to recover with Android. I would like to try a great operating system like Ubuntu.

I'm not a developer, so my skills are not as extensive in this area.

I read the information from the site, about how to install the system on the devices but when I try to download the image in the terminal indicates that the device is not in the https://system-image.ubuntu.com server.

It is possible that this consultation is an issue of low importance to a team of knowledgeable as you all, but I still would like to have your help.

Any collaboration that you can give me would be excellent, and I will be truly grateful.

A phone is not a computer (yet), so the first thing that you have to do is port the system, following the appropriate guide.

It might not be easy, if even not impossible, for your old device, mainly because of the CPU. Ubuntu on smartphones needs at least ARM-A7 and 1 GB of RAM.
