Default Rhobuntu: Ubuntu 9.04 and Debian (test) UPDATE [19/09/2010]

Important - Read First!

First of all you must know that everything you do is on your own risk. Your device was not designed to run GNU/Linux or Android and that's why you shouldn't expect everything to be perfectly safe. If you don't want any troubles then simply don't tamper with your phone. On the other hand, installing Rhobuntu is probably less dangerous than installing alternative ROM's, because it doesn't touch your ROM and runs completely from the SD card. If something goes wrong and the system would hang up, you always can remove the battery and boot into Windows Mobile. Still, we can't guarantee you anything and we won't be liable for any damage that might happen to your device. If you don't accept this, don't install Rhobuntu.

At the moment two problems are known to occur when using Rhobuntu. They are, however, not Rhobuntu specific and may also occur when using Android.

1- After booting back into WinMo, you can't install or run unsigned apps. This problem probably has something to do with the way haret kicks WinMo out of the RAM. It also seems to occur only in combination with the use of Exchange Server. The only known solution at the moment is Hard Reset. Some users also reported that it can be fixed by using Visual Studio 2008. Check out this threads:
o Not digitally signed with a Trusted certificate/ Activesync keeps UNINSTALLING!
o Program... is not digitally signed with trusted certificate. HELP!


2- Since we still have no proper battery charge indicator working, you might not notice that your battery is completely drained. Deep discharge is, however, not good for batteries and may in some cases even damage them. Here is a thread dealing with this problem when running Android
o Android killed my USB connection, please help


The majority of Rhobuntu users doesn't face these problems, but just in case, you've been warned.

Definitely an awesome idea, and one I had been thinking about myself since my original Touch Pro days. An embedded version of Linux should run great on these devices. Hopefully momentum will grow surrounding this.

Exclamation Help!

I extracted all the files on to a newly formatted 2GB card.

Ran haret and everything ran fine. Bit 'interesting' navigating round the screen but got there in the end.

However, since rebooting my phone back into WM I cannot run any unsigned programs such as haret that worked fine before.

The error says "The file blah cannot be opened either it is not signed with a trusted certificate..."

Any idea what's changed and how I can get my phone back to how it was?

I think something got corrupted/overwritten on my phone...

I cannot run any unsigned apps whether they are installed on the storage card or internal memory.

I cannot even install new apps! When I run the cab file, I get the usual "This program is from an unknown publisher..." and when I select yes for continue it immediately comes up with "Installation of blah was unsuccessful."

Time for a hard reset? I'd really prefer not to if anyone can suggest a better way of getting back to how it was.
