Default JDownloader in Ubuntu Touch?

Hi. I am trying to repurpose my old Xiaomi Redmi 3s with 2GB RAM and QC SD430(ARM64) purely for downloads. Its currently running A11 custom ROM but switching to Ubuntu Touch is a destructive process so I am trying to get information beforehand if its possible or indeed even practical.
JDownloader runs in Raspberry Pi and a bunch of other ARM devices running Linux. Has anyone tried it in Ubuntu Touch or Post market OS?
Thanks.

It may be possible to run Java on Ubuntu Touch and JDownloader as well, but most likely only in headless/no GUI mode becuase I don't think that Ubuntu Touch does use the same supported graphic environment as on normal computer. If you are already running a custom ROM, maybe you can get Java running on it and then avoid installing Ubuntu Touch. It should be possible to run JDownloader on headless mode if you can find a supported/working Java version.

Just my two cents. I would not recommend downloading directly to your phone flash but prefer to use external drive/SD card to avoid heavy/lots of writes to your internal flash.

I couldn't find any way to get Java apps running in Android so thought of trying ARM Linux. I read that Ubuntu Touch includes "Libertine" which is a container for running Linux programs made for the desktop.
There's also WINE for Android but it's limited to running ARM apps for Windows in ARM devices.
Yes I am using a 128GB UHS-I microSD for downloads.
Thanks for replying.

Well, in that case...feel free to test it and feedback would be nice
Repurpose the old phone by installing Ubuntu Touch sounds like good plan instead of just letting the phone age and no longer use it.
