I could give the script to lfaber06, to include it, but you will still have to run it on the phone afterward, because it actually needs to copy your webtop partition to your sdcard, then modify the files on the sdcard. You will still have to partition your sdcard as well.

He does have the mount script, so if you do this mod, it should still work with his rom, since this moves webtop to the sdcard.

I will get with lfaber06 and see if maybe we can have the install script run the webtop hack during the rom flash. You will still need to partition your sdcard though.

I'd say make the running of this script optional, as I would never use it and would prefer not to use up any space on my sdcard.

It's really not that hard. Jim's code that has to be entered can be copy/pasted and the partioning tools are real easy to use.

Hey jimbridgman, nice guide you have here. It looks very similar to the guide written in the Motorola Bionic section

Thanks, that means alot!

I learned a lot of it from your post and a few others. Then I modified the steps to get it all to work on our phone, and made the shell wrapper for it.

Nice,

Glad to see the same method works on your phones. Can't wait to see Ubuntu for Android does as far as GPU acceleration goes within the WebBuntu environment like they demo'ed on the video.

Oh I know, ubuntu is it right now for Linux. Sort of how redhat was in 90s, but they are all pro now (rehat that is).... I can't wait to see what Ubuntu turns up with for the andriod distro. It looks promising
