As u may know there is "linux on dex" project by samsung . This project allow u to use ubuntu on dex on Note 9 or Tab 4 .

I managed to open dex and run this app bypassing error about root? Cant say if its root error. It says to update software but even when I "update" by rewriting update version in build prop to newest note 9 update, It still says same. Even after modding sdk to 27 and faking my phone to be oreo 8.1 . I managed to open menu which allow u to choose img file ( ubuntu ) or download 1 from samsung servers . Problem is that app crash after trying to download and it got problems with running img I got on my phone.


Hope some1 got any idea how to run it ?


Linux on dex: https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/samsun...-apk-download/

Activity manager : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ctivitymanager


How to do what I did :
1 : Download apps
2: Give root to activity manager
3: Open Linux on dex beta activity number 3. from the top "linux on dex beta OobeActivity"
4: Andddddd.......................................... ................................... I am stuck :/


I'll try to mess with this app files to get something working but cant say if I can do something or no. Hope some1 got an idea how to run this

After i found ur threat i recreated what u did and have the same result right now.. did u use the samsung image or just another ubuntu image?

hey guys,

I just joined XDA but have been a longtime observer. I own an unlocked Samsung Note 8 (North American Snapdragon version) and would be very interested in getting Linux working on my Note 8 and Dex. It's the only reason I kept my Note 8 and Dex and signed up for the initial "Linux on Galaxy" beta. I do not want to buy a Note 9 just to get this stuff working. Please PM me with instructions OR please post instructions. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
