Debian on Wildfire
Good evening, this is my first post and I'm really happy, I can finally boot a debian on my wildfire, for this I have been guided by manuals for the rest of htc.
As sure a lot of people wanting to play the first thing to do is upload it and explain how it starts, then we can go into details of how and why.
The startup script has a lot to improve and certainly there are some things that are no longer necessary, but I think the first thing is that everyone can enjoy, and after that I dedicate to improve them.
The only thing you need to modify in the phone is to get the root user, I personally used unrevoked for this, besides being very simple, makes available the backup utility nandroid among others, have not tried other methods but I think that any method that can get the root on the adb console, should work
The procedure is very easy and I give you everything you need:
- Compiled binary of busybox
- Start script
- Image file system for ARM Debian Lenny
- ADB download from the official website of android
- Unrevoked 3 there are many guides on how to do, practically only have to download and follow the instructions
- Moving files to mobile
-Enter the abd console and create the folder /data/local/bin and /sdcard/debian
-Copy the image file on the sd folder (you can mount as massive storage mode)
-copy Busybox and boodeb.sh to the folder /data/local/bin, for this use
adb push busybox /data/local/bin
adb push bootdeb /data/local/bin
- Set the appropriate permissions, open adb shell and passed to root (in my case just do 'su' and accept the message I apacere on the mobile screen) and run
cd / data / local / bin
chmod 555. / busybox
chmod 555. / bootdeb.sh
- Basically enjoy
- In a console as root run
./Busybox sh bootdeb.sh
and now you are in a debian shell ready to play and break, keep a clean copy of the image file this is the best rollback that I know.
to exit the chroot only do exit, and you can see a restart of the phone, this is to make everything fair, this probably is not necessary because I have noticed that everything was removed successfully, but for now better that way, and later i'll depurare the script to see what can i do.
I'll attach the files and if I have time I put a few catches, excuseme for errors, I will be watching the thread to respond to everything that Ican.
I'll put the filesystem image on mediafire, but is too slow, you can search for debian_aosp21_fisadev zip, it's the same image, i'll put the link when it end, now i go eat
