Install Ubuntu on your Android Phone

With this app you can install Ubuntu on your Android phone. It has to be rooted obviously and it’s definitely not this.

It looks like this installs Ubuntu in the same way as in the video above. It’s an app that runs in the background and you use a VNC client to connect to it. You could of course use VNC on a local desktop machine to connect to it too making it more useful but I think this is more a curiosity for those who like to tinker with their phones …

Pity he couldn’t get WordPress running on that Ubuntu install. That would have been fun to see!
