  3. Choose ‘OS system data’. The size of the partition will automatically be set. Choose a name of this partition as you like. Then press ‘Create’.
  4. Create another partition of the type ‘OS user data’. Its size should be at least 5 GB (the least we tested) and as much as you want.
  5. Open the ROMs tab.

  7. Read the note at the bottom carefully. If you accept the risk, press ‘Next’.
  8. Choose ‘Ubuntu Touch’ and press ‘Next’.

  11. On the following screen it shows ‘Please select the system image’. Click on ‘Next’ and browse to the location where you unpacked the system image to. Select the system.img or system_uns.img.
  12. The app will show that it is copying the file. When it shows ‘File selected’ click ‘Next’. (about 20 minutes on a SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB)
  13. In the next step choose the correct OS User data partition from the drop down menu and press ‘Next’. Afterwards press ‘Next’ again.
  14. Then you can enter your chosen name of the ROM and click ‘Next’. Press ‘Next’ until the app notifies you that it is ready for installing your chosen ROM. If you would like to stop the installation, click ‘Cancel’. Nothing has been changed so far except your SD card. But if you want to proceed with the installation, click ‘Next’.
