I’m sure everybody is already up with the news of Ubuntu for Phones, or to be more precise; Ubuntu for Android (as of now). But unfortunately, only a few Nexus devices (Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 & Nexus 10) are supported yet which definitely excludes Nexus S. You may also visit the Ubuntu wiki for Installation Instructions for the supported devices.
So, to make it fortunate, we have our Developers at XDA who combine their brilliant minds with the codes to provide some unexpected things. One of these brilliant minds; woorim98 from Team Bridge has made it possible to compile Ubuntu for Phone, from the sources and get it working. According to the developer, the release is in an Alpha stage which is definitely not usable as a daily driver. But if you are an Ubuntu fan, then you must be willing desperately to experience Ubuntu OS on your Nexus S and here you come at the right place. We shall guide you step by step to Install this OS on your Nexus S.
Before we proceed any further, it would be better if you, the users know of what isn’t functional in this port yet.
Beta 3 released on 25 Feb, 2013 has fixed WiFi and Backlight Control completely!
Refer to the XDA thread for more information and direct developer support!
Your device shall now reboot itself into new OS and will begin the setup. Tell us about it, how do you feel using this new OS on your Nexus S? Are you expecting something more out of it? When do you think this could be made a daily driver.
