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
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/DualBootInstallation

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.

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?
