Softpedia was just informed by Marius Quabeck from 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 it's 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 alongside Android, Cyanogenmod, or Phoenix OS.

In other words, you'll be able to have two or more of the mobile operating systems mentioned above installed on your device and dual boot using magic-device-tool, which is also capable of installing Cyanogenmod (with or without the GAPPS (Google Apps) package), the factory Android image, as well as Phoenix OS.

Here are the supported mobile devices, so far

Right now you're probably wondering which mobile devices are supported, so we can tell you right now that magic-device-tool has been successfully tested with BQ Aquaris E4.5, BQ Aquaris E5 HD, BQ Aquaris M10 HD, BQ Aquaris M10 FHD, Meizu MX 4, Meizu Pro 5, LG Nexus 4, LG Nexus 5, Asus Nexus 7 2013 WiFi, Asus Nexus 7 2013 LTE, Asus Nexus 7 2012 3G, Samsung Nexus 10, OnePlus One, and Fairphone 2 (FP2).

magic-device-tool is also good for creating backups, restore you device, lock or unlock the bootloader, or install TWRP recovery. To use it right now, you must download the source code from the project's GitHub page or use the first command below to fetch the latest Git build. Use the rest of the commands below to run the tool, which only works under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) operating systems. See the video below to see it in action!
