====================================================================

By the way, one step that I had to do differently is..

installer.sh
->
sh installer.sh

And also, I had to remove the first line in installer.sh
su ./fsrw
->
#su ./fsrw

You can download the modified installer.sh from here

  3. hi, i been having trouble installing debian on 1.51 jf. I really dont know what i'm doing wrong... still a newbie at this, but when i enter chmod 4755 *, i get "unable to chmod bootdeb: operation not permitted".

  4. nvm i figured out! GREAT WORK MAN! i'm downloading some of the roms right now. HOpe they play good. THANKS AGAIN!

    BTW for people with same problem in the future.. i just rename my bootdeb file to bootdeb.sh, and since i already installed it using the sh installer.sh command, i just enter sh bootdeb.sh and I'm in!

  6. Same problem with chmod, but I could not get debian installed. It does nothing after "sh installer.sh"

    ...

    I have 1.51.. I might try downgrading to see if thats the problem.

  7. Yeah, if you have the CHMOD permissions problems, and you have 1.51.. this is what I did:

    Revert back to RC33 (US) and you will be able to install debian. After that, you can prob get 1.51 .. I havnt tried it yet tho

  8. formated sdcard with ext2 partition,
    debian-live-sid-i386-gnome-desktop.iso

    rooted with JFv1.51_CRB43-ADP and CyanogenMod v3.4

    donwloaded debian installer, followed instructions:
    http://www.androidfanatic.com/cms/community-forums.html?func=view&catid=9&id=2248

    had problems with setting chmod 4744 * permissions,
    replaced with new installer.sh above to sdcard,
    in android terminal as su, ran;

    #sh installer.sh

    installed fine, then ran;

    #sh bootdeb

    and started up great, as a noob myself learning simple linux terminal commands are usefull, for directory list;

    #ls

    to see list of permission set to every file;

    #busybox chmod 4755 *

    thanks for your help!
