    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    Thanks. I'm organizing an open source conference called OSOM (Open Source Open Mind) in Romania, on February 15, and I would like to do a demo with Ubuntu Phone OS. This is the reason why I asked. I already have a Galaxy Nexus available so I could install on it but I was wondering if there is an image (even if not very stable) available. I saw that it's going to be released a stable version this month but I think that it will be after this conference.

    I remember when I got my last Dell laptop, and it was still new I installed Ubuntu on it and when I had a hardware issue, no one would cover the warranty because I did this. If you modify your new phone, the same will apply. It sounds like some manufactures might be installing Ubuntu from the factory if Canonical can work a deal out with some of them. Maybe by the end of the year.
    Now the phones might be a little different if you install Ubuntu on a sdcard and boot from there without modifying Android. I did this with my Nook. So there might be away around not voiding your warranty.

    Cool. How do you tell the phone to boot from the SD card?

    When I installed a different OS on a sdcard in my Nook, it just boots off of it. I didn't have to changed anything. The image I installed on it had to be done with the "dd" command. I would think that the same would have to be done when burning Ubuntu on to a sdcard.
    Here is the link to the download for the image file for the Arm Processor. http://www.ubuntu.com/download/arm
    And here is the instructions for installing on a sdcard.
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ARM/OmapDesk...DInstall.Linux
    This is not the phone image, it is just the image for the ARM processor and I am not sure if it will even work on a phone.

    I ran across this link today, but I have not tried it yet. Maybe it will be worth looking at. Install And Run Ubuntu On Your Android Device With Ubuntu Installer – Download Now
    I don't have a Android phone so I can't try it. I plan on picking up a few more sdcards so I can play around with my Asus Transformer and see if I can get Ubuntu running on it.

    Try this link: http://www.redmondpie.com/install-an...-download-now/

    I rooted my Asus Transformer and I downloaded the img file so when I get another sdcard I am going to try to run Ubuntu on it.

    There are several applications like this, but this is absolutely different thing, because it runs Ubuntu under Android in emulation mode, and it works very slow.

    I haven't try this yet, and the more I read on it, the less I think I will try this. I am looking for a way to install Ubuntu for the ARM processor on a sdcard and try to boot directly from it without even running Android. I did something like this on my Nook.(but not Ubuntu). and I got it to work. Right now I am trying to find out if I can boot from the sdcard on a Asus Transformer TF300T and how to do this. I am running it now in rooted mode so I should be able to do this. I am thinking this is the way one can run Ubuntu on an Android phone if it has enough power.
