Mod Type: Mod
There really is no good place for this as it covers mutliple devices. So I'll put it here.
I woke up this AM, dropped the phone in the dock and NOTHING. Pulled the dock apart and no blown circuits but no power to control circuits either. While I was away I had to get rid of my other docks and am dead in the water (I don't have an HDMI monitor either). I have a big move coming up and cannot afford to replace lapdock for at least a few months. By that time Moto ICS will be out and I expect the user base to shrink to a handful of diehard users. So as of 9/12/2012 this project is officially dead. I can upload the unfinished 1.2.0 if anybody wants to take over to project. Just PM me. Sorry guys. (I guess it's back to Mars for me)
Tegra2 UbunTop v1.1.0
"And finally, monsieur, a waffeur-thin mint"
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Webtop is great, as long as all you want to do is use Firefox and cloud computing. Beyond Firefox, WebTop, in it's current form, is mostly gimmick and PR. I also have nothing against chroot methods, but on the Photon you are running Linux, on top of Linux, on top of Android, a.k.a Linux. This isn't really for me so I sought to find a better solution.
After many hours of searching and testing I've been able to combine existing methods used on the Atrix and a couple changes I made myself to bring you Atrix/Photon UbunTop . This mod turns WebTop into more of a tool while eliminating the additional layer of Linux. Atrix/Photon UbunTop includes almost all of the basic features used by computer users on a daily basis. Here's a list of the main features of Atrix/Photon UbunTop:
Listed in the order of Linux Noob to Linux Pro (Yes, even I was a linux noob once.)
Webtop+: Stock look UI with enhanced dock!
Stock looks with hidden power inside!
Stock UI with PCMANFM Desktop
UbunTopLX: Pure LXDE!
Even faster and lighter still, with more control than Webtop+ with just a simple file swap!
LXDE Panel & Desktop
Easter Egg: Ubuntop Core (Openbox, just Openbox. Not for the timid!)
Bluefish (editor for websites, scripts and programming code)
Firefox (I strongly suggest installing the adblock addons. I would have included them but doing so breaks the install)
OpenOffice (draw,presentation, spreadsheet, word)
Pidgin (How to set up Pidgin for GTalk)
NTFS external drive support
Additional Webtop Goodies The You Can Install:
Stephen Who- Java on webtop confirmed
mastashake57's Webtop Exchange email (untested)
Atrix/Photon UbunTop/Webtop+: (in the downloads section)
ClockworkMod Recovery (do not use bootstrap or safestrap)
Any UnLocked Blur ROM (Webtop does not work on CM7 or CM9)
webtop2sdis required for Atrix users because there is only 1.3MB free space otherwise (after resize2fs this is not an issue for the Photon)
7zip (I use a very particular 7zip setup to ultra compress files that winrar and similar can't extract)
Instructions: deviations from the instructions will cause things to not work
Download and extract the zip using 7zip and copy the contents to internal storage
Your directory structure should be /sdcard/UbunTop/!stuff!
Reboot into recovery
Perform a full backup just in case (to include /osh)
Flash Univ_Ubuntop_v1.0.0.zip via CWM
*ATRIX ONLY-Run webtop2sd
*ELECTRIFY/PHOTON ONLY-Open terminal and Copy and paste "sudo resize2fs /dev/block/mmcblk0p13" and hit enter
Reboot into recovery
Flash the menupatch.zip
Reboot and enjoy!!!
* Everybody needs to read the "READ ME!!!" file. If Ubuntop doesn't work correctly and you have not followed the "READ ME!!!" then that's probably why
* If Firefox can't access the internet, reboot into recovery and wipe cache
- To install "prepackaged" applications follow the instructions in the "READ ME!!!" file in the UbunTop folder on your internal storage
- To switch back and forth between Webtop+ and Ubuntop- Follow the instructions in the "READ ME!!!" file in the UbunTop folder on your internal storage
- REQUIRED FOR ATRIX USERS- Install and run Sogarth's webtop2sd
Reboot into recovery and flash menupatch.zip
Relaunch Webtop+ and enjoy!
Many Thanks to:
SystemR89 (Debian install)
