for the initial boot problems...with all the permission stuffs, i had to sh ./ubuntu** that crap...
i had to run it once, exit, go back into the shell, su, then cd/sdcard/ubuntu again...and i got the permission errors again, so i just went to bootubuntu. but i had to use adb from my computer, i couldnt use the terminal on the phone. just wouldnt work at all.
Im just a frog, tryin to get some wood.
