Toshiba TG01 Running Ubuntu!

Porting… our favorite past time. It looks like since the early days, when Xanandux was all the hype, we have been unable to get past the fact that we want our devices to do everything short of brewing us coffee (or do we?). In any way, thanks to the efforts of XDA member nyl, Toshiba TG01 owners can now enjoy the goodness of Ubuntu on their devices. There are a few goodies working right out of the box like the touchscreen, 3G data, and vibration. However, you have to keep in mind that this is an alpha release and as such, a work in progress, which is far from being finished. The dev claims that he is still ironing out a few of the kinks but that the build is rather functional, so you should be able to pop it in and take it for a spin.

Please leave feedback for the dev in case you run into bugs.

  • Touchscreen works
  • Radio works
  • 3G works 
  • vibration works

You can find more information in the port thread.
