I figured it was time to re-visit Ubuntu Touch on my Nexus 4 and see how it was going.
I was already running stock Lollipop and just kicked up the Ubuntu 14.10 GNOME live image under KVM on my Korora 21 laptop and passed the USB device through.
Following the instructions was really easy to get it going. Actually it was just one command and I was soon booting into Ubuntu, so that was quite impressive.
It booted up and asked me the usual things, connected to Wifi, etc. The interface is still the same as it was last time I checked, unsurprisingly, however it seems to work much better now. The animations are smooth and it’s quite clean looking. The Apps screen is easy to follow and you can easily filter by app group.
