[APP]Ubuntu Install Guide - Desire Testers wanted
Thank you all for the amount of support you have given this project! I have now decided to stop updating this thread. If people still have bugs or want to keep following this project please go to the Main project thread HERE.
I will stop updating this thread because I feel we now know what roms/kernels do and don't work so there is no need for me to keep updating this thread (And the other 5 threads I run for certain devices), but of cause if you do still have problems reply to the main thread or PM me!
Once again thank you all!!
I have released the first version of my app, which guides you through the installation of Ubuntu within android via chroot. It includes a ubuntu 10.10 image I have been working on which includes lots of program to allow users to develop program/scripts etc within Ubuntu on there phone/tablet.
However I have only been able to test the app on my HTC Desire S and Gen 8 Archos tablet and as such I need you guys to test this on your phone/tablet and post back how it works on your device!
Please post your device/kernel/rom along with what did and didn't work, so I can draw up what I need to change in the next release of the app/ubuntu build.
These images are 1.5GB to download, once extracted 3.5GB, and include alot of programs like openoffice, thunderbird, firefox and over programs for 'developing'
These images are just under 500MB to download, once extracted 2.5GB, and include only programs needed (LXDE desktop, firefox, + other basic programs)
I also want to build up a small group of testers who I can email with new images and scripts, these will include all future distros that I do. If you are interested in joining this test group please PM me or send a email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The only requirement is that your willing to test and send feedback along with screen shoots etc where required, it would also be good if your willing to try different roms and kernels for your device!
Show your love of ubuntu on android with my sig banner:
