Grab the scripts for Ubuntu 12.04:
http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php?t=82819

You need to modify the install-chroot-part.sh file.
Locate the line:
Code:
apt-get install -y dialog apt-utils
and replace it with this:
Code:
apt-get install -y dialog apt-utils sudo
Locate the line:
Code:
for group in audio netdev adm plugdev video dialout voice pulse
and replace it with
Code:
for group in audio netdev adm plugdev video dialout voice pulse sudo
just like above (by adding sudo). This way, you get sudo for your user account.

Proceed and install 12.04 with LXDE, LXDM, wicd-gtk, wicd-curses and anything else you want from the list.

After logging in to LXDE on your phone, connect to wifi, open lxterminal and type:
Code:
sudo leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list
Replace all occurrences of
Code:
precise
with
Code:
trusty
Then run these commands:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install surf netsurf
Surf and netsurf are fast lightweight browsers. Netsurf doesn't depend on libgl.so.1, which comes in handy.
If the system complains of missing libraries, you can download them from the net and put them into /usr/lib.
Run
Code:
 lsb_release -a
and check the OS version. If it says 14.04 trusty then job well done.

I compiled sphone:

for armhf, deb file is in the attachment.
Somebody should test the newer ofono from 14.04 for phone calls support. Also, you gain access to Ubuntu Touch's UI unity8, and its dialer-app and messaging-app. They complain of shader support when run, we need omap hardware accelerated driver.

There's an alternative to ofono. It's possible to install freesmartphone middleware and SHR phone apps:
Code:
sudo apt-get install phoneui-apps fso-gsmd-n900 e17
You need to have Enlightenment as your desktop in order to run SHR apps. As a result, power management is better (screen turns off after a few seconds of not being used) and SHR's lockscreen becomes the screensaver.
