Before the Galaxy S II is even available in the U.S. it’s already been rooted, overclocked, and the first few custom ROMs are coming up as well. We have seen a few users with Ubuntu on the original Galaxy S (while hard to use) for a while now. So now it has been ported to the Galaxy S II (who would think that would have taken longer).
Currently Ubuntu on the Galaxy S II works as a proof-of-concept, but it has a few major bugs:
- It’s not running natively, only through VNC
- Resolution is to high
- The performance isn’t particularly good
- Stability issues
- LXDE (Unity or Gnome3 preferred)
- No browser (yet, Firefox doesn’t run)
Android Guys have promised a beta version soon.
