iphone ix ubuntu– It may sound rather crazy and totally unreal but it is possible to install Ubuntu on iPhone and iPod Touch!
– Really? Wow! Nice! Hmm… Wait a minute. Um.. Pinched Ubuntu on iPhone just for pinging localhost? And what’s the purpose of that staff?
– See below in this post…

iX — is the new project aimed to make it possible running Ubuntu with xfce4 window manager on iPhone hardware. The main purpose is to use Ubuntu packages/software there. At this stage of development you cannot either make calls or send messages. Meantime you can use wicd (sudo apt-get install wicd in normal ubuntu) as network manager and use touchscreen, here how it looks like:

or another proof photo:

ubuntu on iphone #2

Despite iX is slow and not so good looking as native iOS I am sure this project has a future. At least before Apple doesn’t know about it and didn’t kicked developer’s butt. But who knows, may be we’ll see uPhone, kuPhone and xuPhone once iX project gain strength…

iX image is available for download here:, guide to install iX:

All your links have been severed! Did someone get a cease and desist? Shame, I would have liked to restore my old useless Iphone 3s (that Apple no longer supports) to some sort of functionality beyond what Apple approves.

I learned how to generate buzz from Apple's marketing models. From product per-advertisement and how to continuously remind the market of its brand's relevance.
