I use mine to do script beautifier, batch upload to dropbox, and run a lot of stuff just not available for Android yet. I even use Eclipse to fix apps when I can't get back to the computer and I need something ASAP.Blunderbuss said:other than the geek-factor, what use is there putting ubuntu on the d2g? Maybe this has an obvious answer, but I don't see what functionality it will add...
Well the link isn't a work in progress, it is a complete working project with all necessary components and additional instructions on how to customize or alter it. It was released as a stable, completed project a few months ago.aceoyame said:I will have to look at that, this has been dead for awhile and if anyone wants to take over they can... I've been too busy with Life,MIUI and that MS2 rom (which is being a major pita)
I just meant if you want to use it as a base it is there. the Droid 2 support is included, but not a focus. It would at least give you all the images, and a general layout for the run script and the install. The method used for the Droid 2 uses the internal "card" as a fake ext2 to prevent issues with loop devices and kernel compatibility. By stable, I meant that nothing needed to be updated for it to run in its current state. I didn't intend to prevent you from making one, just point out a lot of info and references are there to save a lot of work.Well you beat me to it then lol. I will update OP and give you credit then
so I can use backtrack/aircrack on it?I am going to make my first Ubuntu image for the D2G (Should work for d2) later today, when/if all goes well I will post it here.
Note: This will NOT install directly over your android install, this basically makes the phone to use your kernel with loop back fs essentially for ubuntu. So you can run a script and boot ubuntu inside your terminal in android.
