Ubuntu – Ubuntu Touch running on Android Emulator


As Ubuntu Touch has an underlying Android/CyanogenMod Layer, I would like to ask if it's possible with reasonable effort to run Ubuntu on the Android Emulator which is part of the Android SDK.

Best Answer

There are several resources how to run CyanogenMod on the Android Emulator. So this is definitely possible and the effort seems to be reasonable. Also there are many people already working on solutions how to port the existing Ubuntu Touch to other real devices. In the same way would be a port to the Android Emulator work as well.
