This sounds awesome. My only question is does the phone still work if someone calls? Total noob question I'm sure :-/

Default WOOT more options!!

First of all thank you very much for your work here. I am very interested and will start playing shortly. I am a little timid as I am new to Android and just feeling out rom's and Kernels and such and fear branching to OSs will retard my progress. My apprehensions are not strong enough to stop me. . .I am typing while downloading all the stuff I need.

I have a couple of questions for this mod.
- From the instructions this appears to be something that you would not be booting into but would have to launch (at least with the instructions provided). Is this correct?
- Do you have typical functionality of the phone or does this covert the device to a UPMC?
- Uninstallation is as simple as removal of the files?

EDIT: I read the thread again after posting and saw someone saying it runs as a VM on top. . .I would assume that this address question 1, minimizes questions 2 and 3. . .but I am still curious.


This is really fascinating. I will likely press on with it knowing I can restore the puppy if I need some functionality lost or it is booting to this and I can figure out how to go back. a big thing is that it is annoying me that I cant print without some online service. . .but that is another story.

Now onto:

You know how they say that you should only say 20% of what you think. I thought the original person making comments was the same type of douchenozzle that corrects spelling errors in chats and stuff. . .not identifying that casual forms of computer mediated communication offers more allowances than . . .say an academic study. I have seen this before, and frankly did not want to call that guy out because he probably does not know better.

IMO - the people legitimizing his complaints, which were not constructive to the spirit of the thread, top him in douchnozzlism and are the reigning champions of douchebaggery. Are you really so spoiled that the deviation from "normal" grammatical rules (in a forum where the norm is more of a deviation really) so distracting that it reduces value from the content the OP was attempting to present. I would argue that all of your comments (and regrettably now mine as well) go a much greater distance in detracting from the quality of an otherwise fine thread then any style, font, color, or other PERSONAL PREFERENCE that the OP could have possibly done.



Sorry. . . grammar Nazis have always been somewhat of a pet peeve of mine.

Thanks OP for the effort of not only putting this together but sharing it with others to enjoy. Sorry for detracting from the quality of your posting with my slight rant above but I am sure that the quality of your posting will survive me and the remainder of the douche clan.

Yeah it still works... because you're not actually running it on the phone, but rather a type of virtual machine like newkidd said... and I apologize to all the people who are more worried about how I type rather than the quality of work that's done here.

So I am a fool. after running through this I can see what is going on . It appears that the phone is still on and you are just in the VNC application making a local ssh connection to display the GUI.

I did make some mistakes in the creation of the .bashrc file and will have to work to open it. I did get connected to my local ubuntu and can navigate the gui (hit start button, switch desktops).

I have yet to be able to launch any applications though. I did notice that a click and hold seems different to anything else and there are some input settings that let me use the mouse with the dpad and such.


Am I doing something wrong or missing something. I also had to set the use local mouse option in the VNC settings to be able to get this far. . .but I have yet to be able to actually launch an application. nonetheless. . .this is awesome and thanks. I look forward to the new hotness.

I too have yet to be able to launch an application. Other than mines that is. I got that running but unfortunately I don't know how to right click so I can't play haha.

Yes, Ubuntu Runs Off A Virtual Box Basically, So You Still Have Full Functionality Of The Phone, Also To Remove The Files If You Don't Want Them, You Have To Plug Your Phone Back Into The Computer, Boot Ubuntu Through ADB Shell, Then Type These Commands "apt-get autoremove tightvncserver" As Well As "apt-get autoremove lxde" And "apt-get autoremove openssh-server" As Well As Deleting The Files From Your Phone ...If There's Anything Else I Can Help With?

This is going straight onto my phone and I'm installing Code::Blocks. Mobile dev station! Thank you so much! Did you try and get the ubuntu netbook interface running? I read it was more geared to smaller screen sizes but I've never taken a look so... And Quit Hating On The UPPERCASE!
