Installation Ubuntu on Android It is not complicated at all, we will only need the help of three or four applications and follow the instructions of the video-tutorial the verbatim.

Requirements to be compulsorily fulfilled

We will need a terminal with an operating system Android that has a minimum processor of 1Ghz, it must also be rooted and have in the internal storage memory a between 2,5Gb and 3,5Gb of free space.

I'm going to do it with him Samsung Galaxy S model GT-I9000, and the result is spectacular, it costs something to see, but in itself the system is fully functional and moves with ease.

I have also done it with the Samsung Galaxy Tab model P-1000 and the result and the experience is much more rewarding due to the dimensions of 7 ″ screen.

What do we need?

The first of all will be to download the Ubuntu Installer App, you have them in two modes, a fully functional payment and that will let you select Ubuntu 12.04, and the other completely free, which will only let you install Ubuntu 10.10.

We will also need the Terminal Emulator and VNC Viewer, these two free programs can be downloaded directly from the application ubuntu-installer.
