Fun Projects: Ubuntu Touch & LuneOS

Two things I’m currently working on:
Ubuntu Touch on my old Nexus 6P, just to see how it’s coming along. I did need to reference this comment in order to get mine booting properly.
LuneOS on my old HP TouchPad… Which is giving me some problems. It started off rough because I was trying to find some files that were released between 2011-2014, & then trying to get them running… Then once I finally got that done, I still wasn’t able to get LuneOS to boot. Here are some of the files I collected while working on this:

webOS Resources

Just making note of some webOS tools \ resources that could be useful as I start playing with my HP TouchPad (Tenderloin) again. Specifically, I want to install LuneOS on my device.

➜  webOS Needed this version because it has options included for LuneOS.
WebOSQuickInstall-4.6.0.jar: I didn’t actually need this, but downloaded it because I was nostalgic.

So WordPress is giving me an issue when I try to actually upload a ZIP of the above (I can appreciate them not wanting me to upload DMG or JAR files), but I keep just getting a generic error when I upload the ZIP. This is mainly for my own reference anyway, but if anyone else is reading this, feel free to reach out & I can send you what I have.
