Dragons ahead. You can brick your phone. WORK IN PROCESS

I have compiled two threads and post them in a clean manner so that we can use bionic webtop.

Bionic Webtop Chromium (Chrome) Browser - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1271624

[Mods] WebBuntu Post-Webtop2sd Hacks - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1281722

[How to] VNC server in a pinch + Webtop w/o HDMI [Moved to Beta] - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1218217



This is the site for getting osh partition from bionic. http://www.pressbyte.com/5382/unbrick-motorola-droid-bionic-restore-stock-rom-tool/

targa_cdma_targa-user-2.3.4-5.5.1_84_DBN-55-110814-Verizon-US.tar.gz
http://www.multiupload.com/HUMXFD1J6L

Then, after extracting the file, you get grfs.img file and place it to /sdcard-ext directory.

After that you can mount to /tmp/grfs by;

open ADB terminal

# mkdir /tmp/grfs
# mount /sdcard-ext/grfs.img /tmp/grfs

Now we have the osh partition mounted to /tmp/grfs. We will use these file to make fake osh partition.


To create 2 GB fake partition, we need to create ubuntu.disk file on /sdcard-ext directory. Extract attached rsync.deb file to /sdcard-ext directory. Afterwards;

open ADB terminal

# su
# /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
[email protected]:/# /bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk bs=1024 count=2097152
[email protected]:/# /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
[email protected]:/# /sbin/mkfs -t ext3 -m 1 -b 2048 /dev/block/loop7
[email protected]:/# mkdir /tmp/osh
[email protected]:/# /bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /tmp/osh
[email protected]:/# mkdir /tmp/deb
[email protected]:/# /usr/bin/dpkg-deb -x /mnt/sdcard-ext/rsync* /tmp/deb
[email protected]:/# /tmp/deb/usr/bin/rsync -avx /tmp/grfs/ /tmp/osh/
[email protected]:/# exit
# reboot


Now we have original webtop (jaunty) and fake webtop (maverick). The osh directory is mounted on original webtop. Now we mount the original webtop to /tmp/osh_1 directory so that we can use some files if necessary. This remounting is not necessary though.

open ADB terminal

# su
# mkdir /tmp/osh1
# /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 /tmp/osh1
# /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /mnt/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
# /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /osh

Voila. We have mounted fake webtop to /osh mount point. Now we can use apt-get but to use it, we need to change some files in webtop. We shall download this file http://www.megaupload.com/?d=R56GAH8Q and put it into /sdcard-ext directory.

open ADB terminal

# su
# /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
[email protected]:/# cd /osh
[email protected]:/# tar jxvf /mnt/sdcard-ext/mbm.tar.bz2
[email protected]:/# mount -o remount, rw /
[email protected]:/# mkdir /var/lib/dpkg/updates


we need to update /etc/apt/sources.list file.

open ADB terminal

# su
# /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
[email protected]:/# chroot /osh
[email protected]:/# echo "deb http://91.189.92.175/ubuntu-ports maverick main universe restricted multiverse">/etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:/# echo "deb http://91.189.92.175/ubuntu-ports maverick-updates main universe restricted multiverse">>/etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:/# echo "deb http://91.189.92.175/ubuntu-ports maverick-backports main universe restricted multiverse">>/etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:/# echo "deb http://91.189.92.175/ubuntu-ports maverick-security main universe restricted multiverse">>/etc/apt/sources.list
[email protected]:/# apt-get update
[email protected]:/# apt-get install chromium-browser

Now we have a working fake webtop (maverick). The next step is to use this webtop instead of atrix webtop (jaunty).


Reboot atrix. After rebooting every thing will be normal. You will have original webtop mounted on /osh directory. Put atrix to laptop dock. Atrix webtop will open and you will see the destop ( jaunty ),

then open lxterminal;
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$ /usr/bin/sudo -H -u adas bash
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$# sudo /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 /tmp/osh_1
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /mnt/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /osh

Here, we disconnect /osh mount point from jaunty distro and connect maverick distro to /osh mount point. Actually we are trying to trick atrix webtop.

Now, we can open chromium-browser. Again open lxterminal and run;
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo cp /tmp/osh_1/usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libflashplayer.so /osh/usr/lib/chr*/plugins/libflashplayer.so
[email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo chromium-browser

Voila.

Thank you alot for your hard work :)

But i have few questions: Is everything working fine? Is it faster or slower? Do all bionic patches and hacks work?

This does basically replace my old webtop right? Is there anyway to revert back to atrix webtop after following your guide? In case of Brick, can i fix it?

Again THANKS :)

Hi,

This is not complete. But in this mod, we donot touch original webtop. After reboot, it reverts back to original.

Can the chrome browser be installed on our webtop with out having to do all the bionic stuff? If so thats all I need. Thanx.

hi,

the problem with chromeium browser is about jaunty ubuntu distro. afaik you can not run on jaunty properly. although there is armel arch in jaunty ubuntu distro, it is very old. Maverick is the ubuntu distro which supports chromium browser properly.

Bionic Break Development (WIP)

Hey,

Nice set of threads, I like your version currently do to I barley have time to go back and fourth between phones one use one dev Atrix but here's what I have on this end : Bionic Webtop [Port Breaking Ground]

I'm stuck at the moment getting a backup of the current webtop within the same flash able and in the correct format. I have the commands working while within adb though timing it in with the install zip is a pita.

so here's the installer its a permanent flash so you can use it continuously, as for the docks they don't work due to launchers not having the correct environment variables for android haven't gone further than ripping both sets apart. As for the webtop.sh script its backup section doesn't work atm so I haven't released it rewrote it a few times with no luck, the installer works fine. Really its a simple switch with joe's webtop mod with the osh.img, the point of the flash able zip was to have what ever was their backed up compressed and ready to swap.

The codes for backing up and prepping via recovery are:
Code:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 bs=131072 | gzip > /sdcard/osh.img.gz
reboot recovery (<this is optional if your already in recovery XP)

BTW as for a GUI I recommend using:
[How to] VNC server in a pinch + Webtop w/o HDMI [Moved to Beta]

Have a look if you like.
Do note the backup on this dose not work!!!!! though the installer dose is pre-loaded with the bionic webtop. Also note this is for Further Development only been sitting on this for awhile being I rather have easier reverts to my Webtop's then to have peps stuck.

BACKUP YOUR CURRENT WEBTOP THIS WILL DESTROY IT

Bionic Break (WIP)

Will add the flash able I have as soon as I get home so 2hrs, for now here is a zip with the modified webtop.sh scripts for a few of my attempts at it.

I am very happy that a developper is helping. I have looked at your codes. There is webtop.img.gz file in sdcard. if this file is grfs.img than you can not dd or copy to mmcblk0p13 since atrix mmcblk0p13 is 750 mb and grfs.img is 1.3 GB. if it is different than grfs.img, where can i find ?

Its not meant to dd its actually meant as joe ferra's mod uses to literally drop in the /osh directory of the webtop mod zip though I edited the adb commands to use osh so the image it creates is renamed accurately.

And grfs.img? Erm... where and how did you get to that .img 1.3 GB is pretty big for a base webtop, though saw I forgot a = sign in my post up there try it again if you didn't add it. Might have inadvertently created a new .img.gz file marked for 1.3GB (most likely)

Just an example:
Code:
C:\AtrixGinger>adb shell
# mount -o rw,remount -t fat /dev/block/mmcblk0p18 /sdcard
# dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 bs=131072 | gzip > /sdcard/osh.img.gz
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 bs=131072 | gzip > /sdcard/osh.img.gz
(soon to be updated amt here)+0 records in
(soon to be updated amt here)+0 records out
(soon to be updated amt here) bytes transferred in (soon to be updated amt here [ or substitute a ungodly long amount of time here]) secs ((soon to be updated amt here) bytes/sec)

then rename the osh.img.gz to webtop.img.gz

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/osh.img.gz bs=131072
6144+0 records in
6144+0 records out
805306368 bytes transferred in 250.009 secs (3221109 bytes/sec)

then rename the osh.img.gz to webtop.img.gz

The file is 1.3 GB since afaik bionic has osh partion of size 1.3 GB. When you mount grfs.img, you can see that it has 650 MB free space. So it has 650 MB size of webtop files. I got this file from a web site which I had mentioned. Then extracted this image.

In this code "dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/osh.img.gz bs=131072" you are creating a image file size of mmcblk0p13 only as you mentioned. Where do you get maverick webtop ? I am asking since I do not have bionic but only atrix. I think you have bionic at hand and creating a copy of mmcblk0p13 webtop (maverick).


By the way, [How to] VNC server in a pinch + Webtop w/o HDMI [Moved to Beta] topic is interesting. I am following the steps you mentioned. I have added this topic to the frist page.

About to update the again though, as for the osh.img it was dumped back when they were gathering stock files for the Bionic. I myself have only 2 captivates and 2 Atrix's + the 2 other Atrix's I've modded for my family XD dont own a Bionic though, Ill post the original link to the thread here when I find that again. It was uploaded by Bezerker7 in the bionic thread here on xda the linking osh.img he posted is this from his website. I used joe's webtop mod pulled out the webtop.img.gz file from it then swapped out the osh.img in there with the bionic repacked them all and it worked didn't upload till I had a A/B switch type zip finalized but its been stuck solid for a week. The Flashable Bionic is here: Bionic Break Safe to flash and will keep Bionic Webtop on the Atrix though is not able to complete the backup like I intended.

As for the updates:

Wow, so I apparently opened up a older Lab folder for this project so it works but doesn't work right, my new position at my job killing me. So I just checked out the posts and seems I was off on the DD commands. Heh gotta love development wish notepad++ was as organize-able as one-note was.

Correct one is:
dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 bs=131072 | gzip > /sdcard/osh.img.gz

otherwise it'll miss format the archive and fubar the internal img
Ill try adding it to the current webtop.sh and see how that goes, if someone can take a look at my folder of various webtop.sh files and see where a possible problem is. Personally I think its timing the commands and having one finish before the other one starts. Updated the posts above respective to this update on the backup usage with dd.

See look no hands XP!! lol or in this case no Bionic

Hi, I have extracted osh.img and mounted to /osh. After running this command;

[email protected]:/# apt-get -v
apt-get -v
apt 0.7.20.2ubuntu6 for armel compiled on Apr 17 2009 05:17:49

If you look at apt-get version, this is ubuntu jaunty distro but not maverick. So that osh.img is not from bionic but from atrix webtop.

Bionic Break Development (WIP)

Opps uploaded a shell installer >,<

Sorry grabbed a shell installer basically was the core webtop mod with the work being done on the backup and updater zip fixed tested then reconfirmed and will be available here:


Double checked and its the right one this time see edited and highlighted the bionic download link for the osh.img above, third times the trick XP my files were a mess across both my Atrix's due to work stuff en ways its on its way up should be within the hour ITS UP, even tested this on my main phone for kicks its deffenatly the Bionic Webtop Now XD

Notes: do know that you still have to do the mods the Bionic users are doing to their webtop to make use of apt-get and what not, basic commands still function as you can see in the pics

Heads up:

Anyone that downloaded before this post, you might wanna re download I cleaned out my files on my end and on multiupload, so everything is where it should be in this part of this development. The installer dose work, though the backup part and function of the installer dose not, but will push through regardless of a fail/successful backup as of yet the flash able has not been able to create the backup. For backing up your webtop in the correct format use the code part posted earlier. Those using webtop to sd will need to re install the backup of the base webtop as they see fit.

    Dragons ahead. You can brick your phone. WORK IN PROCESS

    I have compiled two threads and post them in a clean manner so that we can use bionic webtop.

    Bionic Webtop Chromium (Chrome) Browser - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1271624

    [Mods] WebBuntu Post-Webtop2sd Hacks - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1281722

    [How to] VNC server in a pinch + Webtop w/o HDMI [Moved to Beta] - http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1218217



    This is the site for getting osh partition from bionic. http://www.pressbyte.com/5382/unbrick-motorola-droid-bionic-restore-stock-rom-tool/

    targa_cdma_targa-user-2.3.4-5.5.1_84_DBN-55-110814-Verizon-US.tar.gz
    http://www.multiupload.com/HUMXFD1J6L

    Then, after extracting the file, you get grfs.img file and place it to /sdcard-ext directory.

    After that you can mount to /tmp/grfs by;

    open ADB terminal

    # mkdir /tmp/grfs
    # mount /sdcard-ext/grfs.img /tmp/grfs

    Now we have the osh partition mounted to /tmp/grfs. We will use these file to make fake osh partition.


    To create 2 GB fake partition, we need to create ubuntu.disk file on /sdcard-ext directory. Extract attached rsync.deb file to /sdcard-ext directory. Afterwards;

    open ADB terminal

    # su
    # /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
    [email protected]:/# /bin/dd if=/dev/zero of=/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk bs=1024 count=2097152
    [email protected]:/# /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
    [email protected]:/# /sbin/mkfs -t ext3 -m 1 -b 2048 /dev/block/loop7
    [email protected]:/# mkdir /tmp/osh
    [email protected]:/# /bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /tmp/osh
    [email protected]:/# mkdir /tmp/deb
    [email protected]:/# /usr/bin/dpkg-deb -x /mnt/sdcard-ext/rsync* /tmp/deb
    [email protected]ocalhost:/# /tmp/deb/usr/bin/rsync -avx /tmp/grfs/ /tmp/osh/
    [email protected]:/# exit
    # reboot


    Now we have original webtop (jaunty) and fake webtop (maverick). The osh directory is mounted on original webtop. Now we mount the original webtop to /tmp/osh_1 directory so that we can use some files if necessary. This remounting is not necessary though.

    open ADB terminal

    # su
    # mkdir /tmp/osh1
    # /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 /tmp/osh1
    # /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /mnt/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
    # /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /osh

    Voila. We have mounted fake webtop to /osh mount point. Now we can use apt-get but to use it, we need to change some files in webtop. We shall download this file http://www.megaupload.com/?d=R56GAH8Q and put it into /sdcard-ext directory.

    open ADB terminal

    # su
    # /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
    [email protected]:/# cd /osh
    [email protected]:/# tar jxvf /mnt/sdcard-ext/mbm.tar.bz2
    [email protected]:/# mount -o remount, rw /
    [email protected]:/# mkdir /var/lib/dpkg/updates


    we need to update /etc/apt/sources.list file.

    open ADB terminal

    # su
    # /usr/bin/sudo -H -u root bash
    [email protected]:/# chroot /osh
    [email protected]:/# echo "deb http://91.189.92.175/ubuntu-ports maverick main universe restricted multiverse">/etc/apt/sources.list

    Now we have a working fake webtop (maverick). The next step is to use this webtop instead of atrix webtop (jaunty).


    Reboot atrix. After rebooting every thing will be normal. You will have original webtop mounted on /osh directory. Put atrix to laptop dock. Atrix webtop will open and you will see the destop ( jaunty ),

    then open lxterminal;
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$ /usr/bin/sudo -H -u adas bash
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$# sudo /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/mmcblk0p13 /tmp/osh_1
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo /sbin/losetup /dev/block/loop7 /mnt/sdcard-ext/ubuntu.disk
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo /system/bin/mount -t ext3 /dev/block/loop7 /osh

    Here, we disconnect /osh mount point from jaunty distro and connect maverick distro to /osh mount point. Actually we are trying to trick atrix webtop.

    Now, we can open chromium-browser. Again open lxterminal and run;
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo cp /tmp/osh_1/usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins/libflashplayer.so /osh/usr/lib/chr*/plugins/libflashplayer.so
    [email protected]:/data/home/adas$ sudo chromium-browser

    Voila.

    Notes: do know that you still have to do the mods the Bionic users are doing to their webtop to make use of apt-get and what not, basic commands still function as you can see in the pics

    Thank you alot for your hard work :)

    But i have few questions: Is everything working fine? Is it faster or slower? Do all bionic patches and hacks work?

    This does basically replace my old webtop right? Is there anyway to revert back to atrix webtop after following your guide? In case of Brick, can i fix it?

    Again THANKS :)

    I have compiled two threads and post them in a clean manner so that we can use bionic webtop.

    I love you.

    I can get dirty with the cli but this is a little beyond my comfort zone. Will parts of this process be automated eventually?

    Hi, do you have twitter or something, so we can follow you on updates?

    Hope you haven't stopped working on it :(
