Updated with Video! Run Ubuntu on a Touch Pro2

This may be a testament to the versatility of Windows Mobile devices or to the genius of certain XDA members. It looks like user sebbo90 has figured out how to run Ubuntu on his Touch Pro2 through haret. Last month, user fatsal did likewise on the XPERIA X1. Ubuntu is a flavor of Linux (similar to Android), but is intended for laptops and desktops. You can give it a try yourself by loading the files onto your storage card, and running haret.exe. So far, most radios don’t work, and the keyboard support is still not there, but nevertheless, it’s cool to run Ubuntu on your phone! If you enjoy tweaking, try running Android on your Touch Pro2. It works quite well.

Update: And of course, we wanted to show you in video what this looks like. Take a look at the above video. The operating of Ubuntu is surprisingly smooth (if you can stand the small font size).
