Thanks Sancher. I think I am making some mistake in replacing the xorg.conf file to the package and thats why I cant get it right.

Could someone explain the actual steps to replace the conf file from system with this file??

Well, you can just download it in debian using browser(if default browser doesn`t work you can install iceweasel using terminal and virtual keyboard. Just open terminal and type: aptitude install iceweasel). Then put it instead of original one which is situated at etc/X11 folder of debian File System using File Manager.
Or you can copy&paste it to original one using virtual keyboard))
Maybe there are another way to do it, I`m not sure.

Question HD2 ToolBox Android v4.1+ compatibility..
Has anyone been able to successfully use the HD2 ToolBox on android v 4.1 (JellyBean) and above versions in NativeSD ROMS??

For me, on installing the HD2 ToolBox its gets installed, but after setting up HBL the phone reboots being stuck on HTC logo (splash screen after MAGLDR) and android doesn't load ever and I have to reinstall the ROM. However, the app works fine on Android 2.3.5 or 2.3.7 versions of NativeSD ROMs.

Any suggestions how to use the HD2 ToolBox in Android 4.1+ versions??

Try to install live dmesg lite before installing HBL. I dont know why, but it helps
For me - this tool(HD2ToolBox) is the best realization of Linux on HD2. I dont understand why it is abandoned and not being developed. I was able to use GIMP, iceweasel, nodejs and many more on it. It works fast and smooth without need to use VNC.
The only problem - interface is not very touch-friendly. If someone made touch-friendly interface like Ubuntu Phone and placed here, it would be PERFECT!!!

Thanks for guiding Sancher.. Installing 'live dmesg (v3.0)' got me through the successful installation of HBL. But now clicking 'Start linux on local screen' keeps displaying 'Loading Linux' and so I ain't able to boot up linux even now..

Can you suggest any specific android 4.1+ ROM which supports HBL or may be the ROM you are using currently to run HBL..

I'm using this one http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1934000 on NAND without sd-ext or swap and without any app2sd app and other apps like app2sd. I tried to use it with installed app2sd(or similar, I don't remember exactly the name of the app) once and it didn't work. Then I reinstalled ROM without any of those hacks and it worked.

I didn't know this app is still used, project is not abandoned I just didn't have enough time to work on it. I'll create more universal version of this app (more android versions/os-es compatibility).

Thanx!!! This app was more useful 2 years ago than Ubuntu Mobile developer-preview now.
I think the main reason why not many people use it - it was hard to configure(xorg.conf I configured by myself in 2 days of searching\changing\reloading) + it doesn't want to work without installed dmesg lite(that was almost impossible to find out, I found it out almost by random) and it has some problems with ext or app2sd (not sure).
Sorry for deleting GIMP video - should I upload it again? It worked VERY smooth and fast. And there was no need of using slow VNC manipulation.
