    Question Sailfish OS or Ubuntu Touch on Adam?

    Are a port of either OS possible?

    I have a phone that is more powerful than the Adam tablet so I mostly only play emulator games on my adam since I can connect my old N64, Gamecube, Amiga/c64, Snes, Nes etc... controllers to it with ease using my retro-gamepad to usb-adapter.

    I'm planning go get a raspberry pi for my emulator needs instead, so I would be interested in using my Adam to try out alternative tablet OSes like Sailfish OS or Ubuntu touch. Both those OSes seem interesting, but I dont have a device to run them on so a port to Adam would be really nice.

    Ubuntu Touch should be possible. Haven't looked into Sailfish.

    Sailfish is built ontop of android should be possible, but looks to be fairly complicated with 50+ page porting docs...

    I think I will attempt to port Ubuntu Touch as it seems alot easier and see how it goes.

    I used one on ubuntu site here: https://developer.ubuntu.com/en/star...ng-new-device/

    Still not finding init file on the ext4 partition I have for some reason, so not booting yet...

    UPDATE: Actually it's not mounting the temp fs because of an error of some sort, not sure what could be wrong (checked devtmpfs.c and it seemed to be the same as ubuntu)

    Tried a build of Sailfish OS, but it doesn't seem to be building all the required files. I used this guide: http://releases.sailfishos.org/sfe/S...tKit-1.1.1.pdf

    Any new tries with a newer version of Sailfish? Sailfish OS 3 does even run on simple feature phones so hardware limitations is problably not a concern.

    I think Sailfish OS could make me use my Adam tablet once again.
