Ubuntu Linux Booting and Running on HTC HD2 – Fully Functional!

EDIT: It does actually make calls and call the number but there is no sound. Here I have my T-Mobile HTC HD2, which is a Windows Mobile phone and I am going to boot Ubuntu on it. Ubuntu is a Linux Operating System for desktop and Laptop computers. It runs very nicely and is very smooth. It has text and 3G internet and all features of Ubuntu. It can’t make calls as of yet due to lack of drivers for the phone/modem. Developer’s Site: htc-linux.org Download here: gamesquare.co.uk

    I think phone and mobile OSs should all move in this direction. Real computers run on compiled code. When you depend too much on scripts and libraries and shit things become slow and buggy to the point it cannot be fixed. Software today has become like a house with 12 additions built onto it.

    We need a few geniuses to start back at the brutal beginning in assembly and forge a new way ahead.

    boot dsl, it should be a lot faster,

    Firefox on HD2 starts faster than Chrome on my Core 2 Duo…

  4. FogiTofu says:

    Ubuntu is Linux, its built on Debian Linux, has a Unix core, and runs on the Linux kernel.

    wp7 can work?

  8. jasonshipps says:

    He was actually right about it being the Linux KERNEL and Ubuntu being a distro. Fedora is RHEL. But you knew that :)

  9. DarthHwarrior says:

    I love HTC HD2, only ios missing and then its the best development phone out there :D , though it already is with Android, WP7, Ubuntu and meego fully on its way.

  10. A4Necromant says:

    there is only one problem with ubuntu on hd2, just after restart, wm will not run programms, so you will make hard reset…

    Why ubuntu? So heavy and clunky…something like Arch, or Debian would be better.

    i don´t understand what ubuntu is?? what is the difference between linux and ubuntu?? is this a pc system or?? and is it possible to call or write a sms?

  19. sideburns2009 says:

    Ubuntu being built on the Linux kernel doesn’t make it a Linux operating system. Hmm, funny. I guess Android isn’t a Linux operating system either, but still has a Linux kernel. Must be the same for Fedora. BAHAHAHA

  20. ShadowEater120880 says:

    Ubuntu isn’t Linux. Its a distribution. Linux is ONLY the kernel. I’d also suggest pulling gnome out and installing a lighter DE like LXDE or simply use openbox, it will make it run a tonne faster.

    How do i uninstall Ubuntu i bought a Dell Mini off a guy and it has Linux and i hate it…

  34. AndrewWalski says:

    ya just install wine

  35. AndrewWalski says:

    alright, all you need to do is go to a library or borrow a computer with a cd or dvd to burn to. Download an ubuntu.iso off of the ubuntu site then use a burning software to burn it(do not just drag it onto your cd drive double click it). then when your iso is done burning put it into your computer and change your boot bios to boot from a cd, then just boot it and hit install.
    If you need more help there is plenty of stuff online or you can message me.
