Ubuntu on Samsung Galaxy S (Android)17 Aug 2010
In my previous post I showed you how to create an chroot environment for the arm and run it on your Ubuntu. But it’s much nicer to see it work on a real device or on an Android device like Samsun Galaxy S GT-I9000.
I have also created an img for those that don’t want to or can’t create one: Download
Lets begin by preparing our device by create an folder on android, connect your phone to your computer and do:
sudo adb shell cd /sdcard mkdir ubuntu exit
Now you can upload the img file and if you like you can also upload my start and stop scripts.
sudo adb push ubuntu.img /sdcard/ubuntu sudo adb push startA_ubuntu.sh /sdcard/ubuntu sudo adb push stopA_ubuntu.sh /sdcard/ubuntu
Now that you have done all the prep work you can use your ubuntu by doing:
su cd /sdcard/ubuntu sh startA_ubuntu.sh ubuntu.img
To exit just run:
exit sh stopA_ubuntu.sh
That’s it, no more no less :)
Oh I have also created two movies, first one shows how to setup and the second one is the prove it works on galaxy S. Have fun watching.
