Link Working!

DO NOT UPDATE IT TO 11.04 ITS HORRIBLY SLOW AND BREAKS THE .IMG


New Host For Part1/2
XDA-Hosting
DO NOT DOWNLOAD PART 2 UNTIL YOU CAN SEE PART 1, THEY ARE UPLOADING NOW SO IF YOU DOWNLOAD TOO SOON YOU WILL GET A BROKEN FILE.
File sizes should be;
Part2 = 572 MB
Part1 = 900 MB

Google Host
Part1
Part2

FTP Host
k0bra

Select both parts and unzip the folder and copy to your internal sdcard

/sdcard/

download and install terminal emulator and vnc viewer

with terminal emulator

cd /sdcard
su
sh ubuntu.sh

press home DO NOT CLOSE you need to keep this shell open

open VNC
address: localhost
port: 5900
password: ubuntu

set colour to 24 bit

Whats Working?

USB Host
WiFi
3G
Browser - FireFox

When you've finished shut-down the Linux install then kill the terminal shell and clear memory,

Doesn't seem to close properly from the VNC however this is just the background that remains in the memory, everything unmounts cleanly, and it can't be reopened until the memory is cleared. Since its a CHROOT its opened from the android environment and needs to be killed from the same terminal. You'll see when you shut-down the terminal closes and there are unmount commands in the .sh that are executed upon shut-down.

Its pretty much working, let me know if you have issues.






Thanks to whoever built most of this, this was floating around on dell streak forum months ago then it dissapeared so cant find it hosted anywhere any more, modified a few bits to get it working on galaxy s II
