Hey guys,

I thought I'd do ONE tutorial to guide you on how to get Ubuntu Touch running on your HTC Desire. I will NOT offer any help other than this.

THIS IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH KNOWLEDGE IN LINUX.


* I am stuck at step 8 I don't understand, pliz can u help mi????
Nope.
* WHY U MAD??
I'm not. I warned you that this was only for advanced users.


But first, the requirements;

So here's the guide.
1. Download the Ubuntu FS & Desire image (you can get the desire image here).
2. Backup your phone.
3. Wipe everything (Wipe data/factory reset + dalvik cache, and your ext4 partition).
4. Turn off your phone, insert the SD-card into your computer.
5. Transfer the Desire Images to your SD-card (Like you would do if you'd flash it normally).
6. Open a terminal, Unzip the Ubuntu FS.
7. Run the following command; sudo tar --numeric-owner -axf manhattan-quantal-armhf-tar-20130221-1.tar.gz
8. Run the following command; sudo rsync -aP binary/casper/filesystem.dir/ /INSERTPATHTOSDCARD/ubuntu/
9. Safely eject the SD-card and insert it into your phone.
10. Boot into recovery.
11. Flash the desire images (the .zip with Evervolv in it).
12. Boot up
13. PROFIT???
14. Change the values in /usr/bin/ubuntu-session (Look for export GRID_UNIT_PX = 18 and change it to 12)
15. Reboot
16. PROFIT???



I take NO responsibility in bricked phones, bricked SD-cards, loss of data.. You get the point).

When you cd into it, you put the sd-ext path, not the card.

I will try booting it. Currently setting up my virtual linux machine.

i tried with both sd ext and sd card but i think something is wrong with the evervolv zip
