How to run Ubuntu or another distro on an Android phone or tablet - video tutorial

Hi friends, today we'll do something a little strange, we will try and eventually we will be able to run the Ubuntu Android phone.
With application Complete Linux Installer, which we find for free in the Google Play Store, we can run Linux on a phone or tablet Android, I'll try Ubuntu but can run other distributions such as BackTrack Linux, Arch Linux, etc. .
Complete Linux Installer Besides we need VNC Viewer Android Terminal Emulator and of course we also need a picture of your favorite distribution, it will link to find him going through the wizard Complete Linux Installer.
To make the operation you need a rooted phone and a compatible kernel. If the device does / kernel is in your list, then you're in luck.

Careful:
Do not expect miracles, Ubuntu is moving pretty tough, it is not an operating system that can run it daily, consume more power and probably hampers and Android, is something fun for enthusiasts.
Why I am running a Linux distribution on Android? Simply because we can!

Download complete Linux Installer
Download android-vnc-viewer
Download Android Terminal Emulator

    The tutorial is more demonstrative, as I wrote above in the text tutorial, you should not do that, it's good just to know that it is possible to run Linux on devices running Android.
    Maybe the man decides to put on a Ubuntu or BackTrack tablet.
    Enthusiasts will surely appreciate.

  5. You can do a tutorial on running Windows applications on Android?

  6. there is the possibility you can run Windows XP / 7 your phone?

  7. Cristi-admin:… It is good just to know that it is possible to run linux on devices running android….

    It's like saying "you can install Windows on a PC with Vista". And Android is also Linux.

  8. TurocK: It's like saying "you can install Windows on a PC with Vista". And Android is also Linux.

    It's the same thing, Android uses the Linux kernel, otherwise not too much resemble one another's desktop is a phone you are trying to install Linux on your Android and see what comes out.
    From mouth is easy.

  9. George:
    there is the possibility you can run Windows XP / 7 your phone?

    You can not directly run Windows x86 or x64 on ARM architecture, perhaps with the help of an emulator.

  10. daniel:
    You can do a tutorial on running Windows applications on Android?

    You can not run Windows applications on Android can not even run Linux applications without modification.
    You must keep in mind that we are talking about different platforms.
    8 Windows can be run on ARM, but not without some changes.

  11. Cristi-admin: It's the same thing you are trying to install Linux on your Android and see what comes out.
    From mouth is easy.

    You confused "Linux" with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Red Hat, or any linux distribution. Linux does not necessarily mean Ubuntu. Android is basically a Linux distribution for mobile phones.
    A quick Google search with the terms "ubuntu wiki" then "android wiki" results (quotes taken from wikipedia.org)
    - „Android is a Linux-based operating system primarily designed for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers utilizing ARM processors”
    - "Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system [1] for personal computers, servers and netbooks"
    Android is Linux, and Ubuntu as P.
    Don't confuse LINUX with any particular Linux distribution. Linux includes any distribution based on… LINUX, doh

  12. Cristi-admin: You can run Windows applications on Android can not even run Linux applications without modification.

    Here we go again… gica contra
    From the kernel to… .is a long way
    I told you clearly, you try to flash your uiesti a Linux distribution on your phone.
    Android does its job very different from other desktop distro.
    So his novel, he thinks he does everything in his mouth.
    You know what the difference between the kernel and operating system cugrafica, modules, drivers.
    The kernel is the foundation of a building, do not you live in a foundation, right?
    There are also TVs Linux does not mean you can install Ubuntu or Suse on them. And Symbian is Linux kernel but those phones can not really run Android.
    Leave aside the theory and do something, to see the world how sharp mind you, not just your mouth.

  13. TurocK: You confused "Linux" with Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Red Hat, or any linux distribution. Linux does not necessarily mean Ubuntu. Android is basically a Linux distribution for mobile mobile.La a quick google search on the word "ubuntu wiki" then "android wiki" results (quotes taken from wikipedia.org)
    - „Android is a Linux-based operating system primarily designed for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers utilizing ARM processors”
    - "Ubuntu is a Linux-based operating system [1] for personal computers, servers and netbooks" Android is LINUX, and so is Ubuntu :P . Not confuse Linux with a specific Linux distribution. Include any distribution based on Linux ... Linux, doh :D

    Like me not angry with you, you install any Linux distribution on your phone.
    Until then shut up noob-ule.
    You sound like you never sleep
    I do not sit on the Wiki to contradict me, I work daily with Linux, I know you can, and you can not know. I have learned to manage ssh server without GUI, only command.
    You have no idea how a developer works just to make a wireless go right, that's a modified rom. You have a lot of sensors, touch matrix, power management, not to mention the architecture itself Arm vs x86 / x64.
    Everyone knows talking.
    People need to understand:
    Android is part of the Linux family.
    Android uses the Linux kernel.
    Android does not run on your desktop.
    Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, etc. may not run on phones and tablets without modification or without emulator.
    Linux Windows are not sites if Android runs on ARM, other distributions can not do that.
    Not take into account some noob's crap.

  14. Cristi you answer my question to me please?

    Cristi you tell me please if you can play flash nokia android ui c3-00 or something other than Symbian. Or how can I see the Nokia C3-00 your tutorials because they can not see. I require flash player and I give him do not know what the minimum requirements do I need to install Adobe Flash Player. I just posted this comment on Nokia C3-00. I hope you will answer me and thank you very much. CIAO.

    One on hand, you are much more "noob" (or snob?) And do not know to understand a written statement or may not understand Romanian

    What does all this with what I said before?

    Cristi-admin: From words everyone knows.
    People need to understand:
    Android is part of the Linux family.
    Android uses the Linux kernel.

    Well and I what I said? Android is also Linux. If "Android Linux part of the family" does not mean that it is still a Linux? I said, "distribution" because all what I meant, is derived from Linux (ie a modified Linux especially for mobile), so it's all Linux, doh.

    Cristi-adminAndroid does not run on your desktop.
    Ubuntu, CentOS, Fedora, etc. may not run on phones and tablets without modification or without emulator.
    Linux Windows are not sites if Android runs on ARM, other distributions can not do that.
    Not take into account some noob's crap.

    Where the hell would I write (or at least imply) that Android runs on normal PCs or that Ubuntu and other Linux distros run natively on phones / tablets? Why are you trying to divert the discussion again? Can't you really communicate normally with yourself or are you always put on the map and contradict? At least try to read the comments properly and understand them, right…

    You can be more polite (not personal)

    Explain what you mean here? Either I do not understand the meaning or not you expressed yourself correctly.

  20. vlad1:

    Official:
    Sopcast servers can not be controlled, no one knows why this happens, problems with traffic.
    Unofficially:
    There is pressure, copyright infringement, cable companies, companies that charge for online access to TV. Who pays when tv online free on sopcast. Sopcast = threat. We are in a democracy, we pay for everything. Watch on TV, you see advertising online TV service launched by big companies. Lobby, lobby, lobby.

    I'm beginning to "aggression".

    Cristi-admin: Explain to me what you mean here? Either I do not understand the meaning or not you expressed yourself correctly.

    In the tutorial you said something like "how to install Linux on Android smart phones" and I you've been warned (more indirectly, through a parallel to Windows) that the Android itself is all LINUX .
    Perhaps (and this certainly wanted) wanted to say something like "how to install a Linux distribution for desktop on Android". It's kind of silly to say that you can install Linux on Android, and as long as Android is Linux.
    This is what he meant "It's like saying" you can install Windows on a PC with Vista ". And Android is also Linux, mobile devices such as solid phone, tablet, etc..

  22. Super job, bravo.Ar be nice if you make a tutorial on how BackTrack.Despre works with it and what can face.In demonstration purposes of course! Congratulations and multulmesc for what you do.

And Android is also Linux, mobile devices such as solid phone, tablet, etc..

    The ease with which you say "Android is also Linux" can make any Android developer (not me) jump out, in the context in which Android is made for ARM and Linux desptop for x86 / x64.
    Only a noob can…
    So commonplace that you associate Android with Windows and have hinted that something normal, like install a Windows Vista-based PC.
    I get angry when I see how easily ejected with a fantastic words, without even going through their brain (direct drive system / mouth, kind of DMA, without passing on the processor (IOP))
    How can you associate the Windows platform with Android and Linux desktop distributions.
    From the tutorial it must be understood that it is not easy but with a few efforts you can do something, it is not stable but it is something…
    You are the actors that the action films that go through all networks, break database (FBI, CIA, Police, NSA, NASA, government) stop / turn lights, hear phones etc, all in seconds.
    Let's talk about something else… I'm tired of movies!

  24. "The ease with which you say" Linux and Android is all. '" I say very easy, that's because it is. Android is also Linux. I do not know why is it so hard to believe.
    Finally, you are the one who gives lessons on this site, but not me.
    Who wants to understand (sauna u): Android is a Linux "adapted" for mobile devices with ARM processor. So how do you adapt and Windows 8 and (some) tablet ARM processor.
    If you think the principle your 8 Windows running on ARM will not consider Windows, right? Since you say that "nothing Android is Linux, pt. that is that it is running on ARM "
    Bitterness that. It's hard to admit when you're wrong, but you just overreacting.

  25. TurocK:

    And the noob out of you on the surface.
    Windows 8 is not "adapted" for ARM, it is built from 0 for arm and x86 / x64, you can't adapt something for another architecture, you have to write new code for another architecture.
    Android even if it runs on a Linux kernel and can be considered Linux can be installed on x86 / x64 as it is and vice versa for distrubutiile Linux PC. It runs on Android in a virtual environment, Dalvik Cache.
    Do not forget that you left the idea that Android besides other distro's, is like a Windows * Windows Vista besides.
    I do not know what's your answer?

    • Linux kernel

      Android consists of a kernel based on the Linux kernel long-term support (LTS) branch. As of January 2014, current Android versions is built upon the Linux kernel or later 3.4 [91] but the specific kernel version number depends on the actual Android device and chipset. [92] [93] [94] Android has used various kernels since ITS first 2.6.25. [37]

      Android's Linux kernel has further architecture changes by Google outside the typical Linux kernel development cycle. [95] Certain features that Google contributed back to the Linux kernel, notably a power management feature called “wakelocks”, were rejected by mainline kernel developers partly because they felt that Google did not show any intent to maintain its own code. [96] [97] [98] Google announced in April 2010 that they would hire two employees to work with the Linux kernel community, [99] but Greg Kroah-Hartman, the current Linux kernel maintainer for the stable branch, said in December 2010 that he was concerned that Google was no longer trying to get their code changes included in mainstream Linux. [97] Some Google Android developers hinted that “the Android team was getting fed up with the process,” because they were a small team and had more urgent work to do on Android. [100]

      In August 2011, Linus Torvalds said that “eventually Android and Linux would come back to a common kernel, but it probably won’t be for four to five years.” [101] In December 2011, Greg Kroah-Hartman announced the start of Android Mainlining Project, which aims to put some Android drivers, patches and features back into the Linux kernel, starting in Linux 3.3. [102] Linux included the autosleep and wakelocks capabilities in the 3.5 kernel, after many previous attempts at merger. The interfaces are the same but the upstream Linux implementation allows for two different suspend modes: to memory (the traditional suspend that Android uses), and to disk (hibernate, as it is known on the desktop). [103] Google maintains a public code repository that contains their experimental work to re-base Android off the latest stable Linux versions. [104] [105]

      The flash storage on Android devices is split into Several partitions, Such as / system Itself for the operating system, and / data for user data and application installations. [106] In contrast to desktop Linux distributions, Android device owners have not Given root access and sensitive to the operating system partitions Such as / system is read-only. However, root access by exploiting security of can be obtained flaws in Android, Which is used frequently by the open source community to enhance the capabilities of Their devices [107] but Also by malicious parties to install viruses and malware. [108]

      Android is a Linux distribution according to the Linux Foundation, [109] Google's open-source chief Chris DiBona, [110] and several journalists. [111] [112] Others, such as Google engineer Patrick Brady, say that Android is not Linux in the traditional Unix-like Linux distribution sense; Android does not include the GNU C Library and some of other components typically found in Linux distributions. [113]

  27. can install and wifiway 3.4? would be super cool

  28. an unanswered question… ..

  29. How to pass the resolution for that I am not out

  30. For doing so you need to root phone?

  31. I'm not starting the installation… I don't know why, can you please help me? I also have a screenshot…

  32. Goes home and closes linux linux installer appears unfortunately stopped

  33. Very beautiful! And I'm passionate about everything related to IT&C (component video cards) you understand :)) I ran windows 7 with an image created by me! 😀 Good luck videotutorial.ro
