What Works

This is a test build and is just something to play around with and have fun!!

2. Full wipe
3. Flash all 3 files in this order --

---->> 1. ubuntu-skyrocket.zip

All I can say is wow! Doors are opening lately -
It doesn't really matter what clothes I wear
Or how I fare or if my hair is brown
When it's only a Northern song.



all your base are belong to us.

If its the same file name it should work. I just got that file from the Ubuntu site and am uploading it to my devhost.

I thought about building this until I saw that there isn't even support for 3G data yet (for any device). That and most apps are non functional. I'll definitely start building this once the data issues get worked out upstream.

Just tried it, seems very polished, can't wait for the alpha.
