  1. I'm sorry, while this looks "cute"?….to me it comes across as being way too much work for limited returns. Not to mention, you stand a chance of straining your eyes! I'll stick to my 24" screen with my desktop, and the 14" screen on my laptops! My phone? Is really just a way to keep in touch when I'm AFK, and the only other thing I want my phone to do?…is MAKE A CALL!

  2. Ich muss mich erstmal entschuldigen, weil ich nicht auf englisch schreibe, da ich leider kein englisch kann. Ich habe mit dieser Methode versucht, Ubuntu auf mein Tablet GT-N8000 Kitkat 4.4.2 zu installieren, aber leider nicht geklappt. Ich kriege immer in der ersten Zeile "deploy". Wie kann ich dieses Problem vermeiden?. Ich mache genau, wie Sie im Video erklรคrt haben. Ich danke Ihnen im Voraus fรผr Ihre Antwort.

  3. Your just running a VM in the android operating system to run ubuntu. But this doesn't solve the fundamental problem, how to do away with the sh*ty Android OS…. They need to design a phone that can take any Linux or BSD you throw at it, bare metal. Then you can just program software for calls and sms.

  4. it's amazing, you can actually ssh from a pc client to your phone through the IP address on your phone. I was able to setting up the phone as FTP server and samba server. Well these are linux stuff. ^^
