Nexus One: Linux Ubuntu Update on Android 2.2 Froyo

By Alan Ng - Jul 8, 2010

We have some interesting news for Nexus One owners now, as one clever modder has managed to get Ubuntu working on his device, and best of all – he has already posted up a full tutorial so you can get started on it too.

As reported from BGR, Ubuntu for the Nexus One has been achieved courtesy of NexusOneHacks.net. A video tutorial has been provided which you can check out below, which shows Ubuntu Linux running on a Nexus One with Android 2.2 Froyo.

Unlike other OS hacks, you can run Ubuntu straight from the apps homepage, meaning that you won’t have to perform any special tasks when booting up the device.

If you are a regular user of Ubuntu and just so happen to be in possession of a Nexus One, today is your lucky day it seems. Check out the video tutorial below and let us know how you get on.

    This is just awesome! Open source rocks! The average guy probably wouldn't be able to do this, but with some good scripts this could be an option for all Android phones. I encourage the Ubuntu community to develop an install programs for Android phones. This is just one more reason to go with open source platforms. It seems that there is no end to what you can do with both Android and Ubuntu.

    Congratulations to NexusOneHacks on some really nifty work!
