Ubuntu Touch and Android Dual-Boot Installer Available Now

ubuntu touch

Ubuntu Touch is the first Dual-Booting OS for Android devices.

Dual-booting different OSes on a Laptop or Desktop PC is nothing new, we’ve all done that. I used to run Windows and Linux alongside each other before switching completely to Linux. However, Dual-Booting is still a fairly new feature for mobile devices.

We haven’t seen many Dual-Booting phones out there but folks behind Ubuntu have come out with a Dual-Booting Ubuntu Touch OS for Android phones. This new mobile OS by Canonical will run alongside Android to give mobile users a taste of Linux on their phones. Ubuntu Touch is now available for Dual-Booting but according to the developers it will only work on Nexus devices (so far tested on Nexus 4 only). It should only be performed by advanced users who are comfortable with the process of Flashing and unlocking bootloaders.

Update: I tried installing Ubuntu Touch on my Galaxy Nexus and It works flawlessly.
