    hey, nice simplification.
    might want to list specifics of what people will get (in debian) when they flash that.
    oh, and did you register the google sync on that before backup? if you did, the system'll have personal data embedded. I was oblivious and posted a system dump from my ln510 I thought was clean on another forum and months later was informed it wasn't as clean as I thought and had to remove the upload for personal privacy/safety.
    I really liked zefie's work, then he got his S smashed and moved on to some new device and stopped devving stuff translated for the V.

    I'm working on picking where zefie left off, but keep getting a "make: no rule to make target bacon" error I'm trying to track down. Something changed in CM sources to cause the error and so far none of the CM community has responded to my request for help.

    good to hear you're picking up the torch
    I couldn't get xionia kernel to compile from his github source either, but that could've been my noobishness getting in the way. the makefile was looking for stuff in /home/zefie and I am too new to the process to fix it
    best of luck.

    I'll update the post in a bit later tonight and I'll be adding a download with vncserver and the gui installed plus maybe synaptic.
    I built the the restore without adding any personal info. installed from .spk and never had to touch any of the Google features.

    I nailed down the reason why my cpu was pegged out, there was an issue the first time i did my lxde install, every install after has been much better. On top of that i figured a way to make the linux installer more tolerable and will be updating the diy.

    I'm not sure if this is the place to ask for help, but I did everything and installed it. The only problem is that the desktop is all white lol it isn't there. Everything seems like it worked though. Any advice? Should I start over?

    it sounds like you don't have a desktop manager installed. if you tap the screen and see a black "X" for a cursor then you need a package like xfce or gnome installed.

    This didn't seem to install debian for me... I'm not sure what happened...

    it seems like my instructions were a little mis-informative.

    Did you unzip the squeeze.zip file and place it on the root of your SDCard?

    if not try again, open your terminal emulator and type linuxboot

    Trying now with linuxboot.

    When you run linuxboot it should replace itself with the following line in your terminal emulator.

    root@Linux-ARMEL:/

    if it does all is golden

    Finally got this to work. Takes much patience. And I prefer to use adb shell from my computer... MUCH easier!

    In the instructions it says to use the scott pilgrim rom... is there any way to use TheKraven's CM7.2 or install using scott pilgrim rom and then flash TheKraven's rom and run linux from there?

    I installed everything without any errors or issues, however "linuxboot" is not a command. I noticed a file called linuxchroot.sh but was unable to execute it. Looking at it in my file manager showed me only a blank script. Any ideas?

    Actually useing the linux installer you can name it whatever you want.
    Linuxchroot is the default command to enter your mounted loop "linuxboot" is the name given he just forgot to mention i belive

    open your terminal and type "linuxchroot" thats it then follow instructions to install gui ect it all takes place in the terminal

    When i try to install lxde, it wont let me install it, like when i hold the camera button and all that, it wont do anything no matter how many times I do it.

    can someone help me understand it better?

    Just Installed on TheKraven's CM7.2 with no problems and it is running fine, if anyone is having trouble getting it to work try Allow Write To /system and Allow Remount With dev/exec options under setup and If trouble booting make sure you know the name of the chroot launcher script (Changeable under setup)

    Edit: If you still have problems get an app on the market called Debian Installer and download the files and it comes with lxde and vnc pre-installed to the image all you have to do is get it to boot just read the instructions on the app, there is also a Ubuntu Installer app but I couldn't get it to boot
