So I'm back on track after some holiday time, good news is that I just spun out a raring build and have an update zip which I deployed on my phone.
A quick one:
$ adb shell cat /data/ubuntu/etc/issue Ubuntu Raring Ringtail (development branch) \n \l
We were originally running Quantal, we still are for practical purposes, and have been doing so since we were in feature implementation and many packages had overridden functionality. Now that the crunch time is over and trying to be the least invasive as one can be the move to Raring started.
It follows this blueprint and with some road bumps and conflicting schedules it is finally taking form. The idea behind all this is to smooth the transition to S.
You may have noticed that the ppa:phablet-team is now full of packages built for Raring. Jenkins has been updated to do parallel builds for Quantal and Raring for those non conflicting packages and is pushing them into the PPA.
In the future we plan to move on to cdimage for building what we today do on offspring. That will happen as soon as we are on S for that will be the time when all these packages start to land into the archive and we start working on integrating our overridden packages.
I have a pending post on documenting the builds that's coming soon.
So there's a long list of things that are still pending and we probably won't switch to this until we get the parity as it is on Quantal, some things are plain broken and others are just missing.
It's in pretty good shape to be build #1!
My test subject today was maguro.
So from a quick glance, this works:
This doesn't work:
Yes you can, this build should probably work on all devices, the update zip can be grabbed from my UbuntuOne link, to install you can quickly run:
wget http://ubuntuone.com/6l0cbmXPs1jhvzLoa32QgU -O phablet-raring.zip adb push phablet-raring.zip /sdcard/autodeploy.zip adb reboot recovery
Provided that you have the recovery image with the ubuntu logo on it, it should just start, if not go through the menus and deploy it.
Here's a small TODO list:
Once those are done:
