Hey guys,
I've been wanted to fastboot into fjfalcon's kernel. I am using ubuntu 11.04 and im pretty new to linux even though ive found my way around. I don't have fastboot in the tools folder. I tried downloading already compiled files but they seem to be for different devices and they have specific vendor ID's. Could someone guide me on how I can get fastboot to work in ubuntu for the Xt720? I'd be really grateful. Thank you.

Code:
mkdir ~/fastboot
cd ~/fastboot
wget http://xt720.ru/Tools/fastboot
wget http://xt720.ru/Kernel/boot2.img
chmod +x fastboot
sudo ./fastboot boot boot2.img

Good Luck.

Thanks, fjfalcon worked easy! Its nice to see ubuntu users, have you tried natty yet? Oh and thanks for the work on the kernel, it works really well with the new MIUI optimized ROM.

Well,i'am Linux user, but not an ubuntu =)
Gentoo and Archlinux mine distrib =)

Hi,fjfalcon.
In Arch Linux,How to use higher version gcc?
I have tried cross-arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc-base and cross-arm-none-eabi-gcc-base but they don't work anywhere.
Many warning like "variable 'c' set but not used [-Wunused-but-set-variable]"
Stop in one error:"drivers/misc/sec/bridge_pub2sec.S:37: Error: selected processor does not support ARM mode `smc 1'"
How to slove it?Thanks:D

Thats cool, ive been on ubuntu for around 8 months and I love it. I guess for people starting out ubuntu is the way to go. They have their new unity interface which makes the transition from windows easier. Lol I spend more time modding my ubuntu than my android. Love the personalization.

Btw, for anyone looking at this thread to run fastboot in linux I realized you had to use the sudo command. So its:

$ sudo ./fastboot boot boot.img

or whatever .img you want to boot with.
