Ladies, Lads. Welcome to the future. Ubuntu for Android.
What is it?
Ubuntu for Android is two separate operating systems installed into one device (i.e. Smartphone/Tablet) and both run at the same time.
How does it work?
It works like this. You’ll use the Android OS like you would use Android for a smartphone or tablet. Then when you “dock” your device, your PC becomes a fully fledged desktop, and works like Ubuntu normally but with full access to your android apps, contacts, messages, calls etc etc.
If I were you, just wait till ICC. You’ll still be able to root, but will most likely have to wait until someone at XDA finds a way, which shouldn’t take long hahaha.
I don’t have an Android either. I’m waiting until Samsung release the S3 of the Galaxy S. The specs are awesome. 2GB of RAM and a 1.2Ghz ARM processor. Pretty impressive stuff for a phone. Will also have a 12 mega-pixel camera and 64GB of internal storage with the ability to expand to a MicroSD.
Is they a way to root the s2 using LINUX?
I’ve been wanting to do it but don’t have a windross box anymore.
If not, is there a way to root gingerbread without a pc at all.
I rooted my sgs on 2.1 with z4root and run oclf.
There is a way of rooting straight from the handset but it is too long and complicated for me to go through, also I have not done it. The latest edition of ‘Andriod Magazine’ shows you how. For some reason Tesco’s seem to be the only place selling it, though I am not sure about WH Smith. The latest edition has a ‘whiteish’ front to it.
