How-to Install Ubuntu on the Samsung Vibrant

Over the last few months we’ve seen plucky hackers porting Ubuntu to run on a slew of various devices – from iPod Touch to the Google Nexus One.

Now we can add the ‘Samsung Vibrant’ Android phone to this ever-burgeoning list thanks to jzero88 on the xda-developers forum, who has posted an easy-to-follow step-by-step guide for owners wishing to add some ‘buntu love to their device.

As with most hacks of this ilk the “fun” is in the “can do” aspect and not in the functionality of the end result. This doesn’t give you a a fully-fledged Ubuntu experience either nor does it come with ‘phone features’ so calling grandma or sending a text message to the guy you plan to stand up, etc isn’t an option.


If you love hacking around with your device and fancy a go you’ll find the guide @ forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=754258
