I'm trying to run Ubuntu touch on a Raspberry Pi, but I can't find the working iso. Where can I find the version I can boot from an SD card?

This is the how-to article that most Raspberry PI cummunities see to link to:

Go to the "Description" tab read the article. Has the instructions and links to the files they used.

Currently, Ubuntu supports ARMv7 onwards and will not work on the Pi's ARMv6 architecure.

Even Bodhi Linux, based on Ubuntu, based their Pi OS on Debian.

The short answer: Ubuntu won't work on the Pi.

+1.

I followed the links to the download images in that article... and followed it to the Raspberry download site. I got the archive they said they used.. and inside that archive was Debian Wheezy // Not Ubuntu Touch (even though that is what they called it in their article!) They did have more images there, but none were Ubuntu Touch.

Any updates? The Raspberry Pi 2 Model B uses an ARMv7 quadcore chip. It seems everything for Ubuntu Touch is aimed at devices currently running Android.
