Ubuntu Linux ported to the NOOKcolor

Not content to simply root your NOOKcolor eBook Reader and run vanilla Android on it? How about Ubuntu Linux?

Xda-developers forum member devastatorx has posted step by step instructions for convincing your NOOKcolor to boot an Ubuntu image stored on an SD card.

The process doesn’t actually replace Android with Ubuntu, but rather allows you to boot into the operating system using an Android VNC app. So when you’re done, you can just shut down the VNC client.

Image Tools 2.3 - image conversion tool.

Devastatorx says the system seems a little laggy for now. But that’s beside the point, because look! It’s Ubuntu.
