UNSOLVED Installing just Ubuntu Core on a Galaxy S10
Hi, first off I'm new to the forum so if I'm posting in the wrong category feel free to correct me.
Essentially I have a Samsung Galaxy S10 (Exynos) with a cracked screen on which I want to install just the core os of ubuntu, so that I can repurpose it as a powerful, energy efficient and silent home server. Seeing as the S10 is almost completely supported by UBports at this point, it really feels like the technology to accomplish that goal already exists here (especialy considering I only need a bare minimum of hardware support--not even WiFi because I have a generic USB-C NIC connected to an ethernet cable)
In the days of Ubuntu Touch, there used to be a magical tool called ubuntu-device-flash to which you could pass either "core" or "touch", and if you passed "core", it would get a core image instead of a touch one. Is there anything similar around now? I unfortunately haven't been able to find anything and would be incredibly appreciative if someone pointed me in the right direction. I only have the basic Linux skills you get from using Ubuntu as a daily driver for a few years, so when it comes to flashing devices I'm unfortunately pretty lost. I am, however, not at all afraid to get my hands dirty
If someone could take the time to make a basic outline on how I might get Ubuntu Core onto my phone, that would mean the absolute world to me!
Your expectations are not matching the reality I am afraid...
I think you are better off with one of the following options :
- Replace the screen yourself and keep the repaircosts low that way.
- Look for another OS to run on the phone like for example PostmarketOS/Mobian/etc.
