blob.LNX is actually the output of blobunpack, and it's a boot image starting with the "ANDROID!" magic. As you can see above, I tried both variants and neither worked.

I believe you can flash blobs - see my earlier post. I'm pretty sure that's how I flashed recovery...

Thank you for your work and this awesome project!! If this becomes stable and usable, I'll be buying the keyboard dock for my Infinity!! Congratulations on your progress thus far, and a big thank you!!! I was just thinking the other day how much I would love to have this capability!! Would give me a Ubuntu system for me to easier work on various Android phones

Nice. Its always good to options when it comes operating systems.
Also, is this bloated at all? Because, Ubuntu for non-embedded systems has been very bloated since 11.04 and got worse with 11.10.
