  2. Thanks for all the links, was able to get Debian on Cyanogenized Rogers Rom v3.3.

  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". SO i went along and entered sh, and it showed me that debian is successfully installed... but I still can't use bootdeb. Is there something esle i'm missing??? Please help, you work looks awesome and i have donated already. Thanks

  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, and since i already installed it using the sh command, i just enter sh and I'm in!

  5. Same problem with chmod, any solution?

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

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

    donwloaded debian installer, followed instructions:

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


    installed fine, then ran;

    #sh bootdeb

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


    to see list of permission set to every file;

    #busybox chmod 4755 *

    thanks for your help!
