I am interested in exploring all the possibilities Ubuntu desktop mobile offers. I have an HTC HD2 and I am willing to experiment.

  1. How can I install it on this device
  2. Do I really need a cradle or another port (eg USB) can be used?

  1. Download Ubuntu from XDA Developers

  2. Extract the archive.

  3. Connect your device, and copy the "linux" folder to the root of your storage card, eg \Storage Card\linux

  4. Disconnect your device, and run \Storage Card\linux\haret-pre-0.5.3-20100629_092009-QSD8250-ONLY.exe

  5. Wait patiently. If the process takes more than 15 minutes, pull the battery and try again.
