So, you remember Ubuntu running on the Nexus One, right? It just happened, what, yesterday? Well, apparently that wasn't enough for the successful hacker, because he immediately moved onto the next big thing: the EVO 4G. There were a few problems, sure, but that didn't stop the success from happening. You'll want to check out the video below.

Unlike the Nexus One, the EVO 4G's ROMs don't have support for loop devices. As we know from the previous install, this is a mandatory feature, so it just made for an extra road bump in the process. They re-compiled the kernal, which was about one line of code in total, and then had to flash the modified kernal so Ubuntu could run, and actually function worth noting. If you want to know how to do it yourself, go through the via link below. In the mean time, check out the video.
