Marius Quabeck from UbuntuFun.de informed about a new tool that lets users super easily install the Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system on their devices.
The tool is developed by Marius Quabeck himself and is called magic-device-tool. The first stable version, magic-device-tool 1.0, is now available to everyone and promises to offer a simple and easy-to-use batch tool for installing Canonical’s Ubuntu Touch mobile OS, as well as Android, Cyanogenmod, or Phoenix OS.
In other words, you’ll be able to replace your mobile operating system on your device with any of the following: the latest Ubuntu Touch release, Cyanogenmod – with or without the GAPPS (Google Apps) package, the factory Android image, as well as Phoenix OS. Please note that you’ll only be able to run one of these OSes on your mobile devices.
magic-device-tool is also good for creating backups, restoring your device, locking or unlocking the bootloader, and installing TWRP recovery. To use it right now, you must use the commands listed below to fetch the latest Git build and run the tool, which only works under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating systems.
