Currently it is difficult to find a mobile with Ubuntu Phone as standard, since Spanish models are not yet available or they are only in a limited way and Chinese mobiles have little warranty for many users.
However, there is the possibility of being able to have Ubuntu Phone thanks to a manual installation on certain mobiles or directly use the Magic-Device-Tool, a tool that automates the entire installation process and it allows Ubuntu Touch to be installed in addition to other mobile systems such as CyanogenMod or Phoenix OS on Android devices.
Magic-Device-Tool is a great tool and quite functional but unfortunately it does not recognize all mobiles and it cannot be used on any mobile as proposed, although little by little it is being updated with new models and new results.
Magic-Device-Tool allows backup in addition to Ubuntu Phone installation
Thus we will only need a computer with Ubuntu, a cable that connects the mobile with the computer and the program that we can download from on GitHub. Once this we run it and choose the Ubuntu Touch installation option.
git clone https://github.com/MariusQuabeck/magic-device-tool.git cd magic-device-tool chmod +x launcher.sh ./launcher.sh
However, Magic-Device-Tool is also a great tool for making backups or recovery images on certain mobiles, something interesting that must be taken into account in case something goes wrong during the installation or with any other operation.
Magic-Device-Tool allows the installation of other mobile operating systems such as CyanogenMod (with or without GAPPS), Phoenix OS and even the factory Android version, a free version of bloatware.
Magic-Device-Tool is a great tool or at least it promises to be, although at the moment it only works with certain mobiles, but when the list of mobiles expands, it will be something interesting to have It will allow us to install almost any operating system without having to change or buy a different mobile.
