Default Canonical releases Ubuntu and Android dual boot developer preview

Since we already have Android 4.2 working on HD2, is there a way we can port Ubuntu on it as instructed below.

The steps are listed in link below

If someone can do it on our dear HD2, that would be awesome..

"Someone". If you're so interested, why won't you give it a try? Definitely won't hurt. Maybe you'll learn something new, even if you don't succeed.

Hey Guys, how are you?

I tried port this before but no luck, when it boots, the boot stuck in black screen and red square in the center I can move it by touch.

Default stucks in detect_device() { - method

DEVICE=$(adb wait-for-device shell getprop ro.product.device)

this returns 'leo'

I have started from computer via adb shell:

adb shell "sh /NativeSD/ubuntu/dualboot.sh FULL" (as described on canonical website )

After I checked the sh script I have tried also this (with same result)

adb shell "sh /NativeSD/ubuntu/dualboot.sh INSTALL_SU"


In both cases the scripts stucks with comment:

"Connect device to install Ubuntu installer to."

which is at the beginning of the shell function "detect_device() {"

So it stucks in thes function.
I have thought now to change the shell script:
instead of the line: DEVICE=$(adb wait-for-device shell getprop ro.product.device)
I would try: DEVICE=$(mako)
so it should end up in the if statement:
if [[ "$DEVICE" == mako* ]]; then
echo "Detected connected Nexus 4"
RECOVERY_URL=$URL_CMW_PATH_MAKO

Any other ideas? Had anyone success in installing dual boot on HD2 or other threads/ ideas?
