Rooting my HTC Hero Phone
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 26, 2009
There appears to be a number of Google Android users here who have the HTC Hero/G2 phone. I was wondering if any of you had rooted your phones to gain greater access to the Android system? If so how did you do this under Linux as all the guides I find use windows to root their phones.
Also did you find much improvement in the phone by doing so
Thanks in advance
Internet Connection through HTC Touch Viva randomly stops receiving bytes
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 4, 2010
I am connecting to the internet through my HTC Touch Viva, which started in a perfect plug-and-play mode.. Connected it to the PC through USB cable, enabled 'Internet Sharing' on the phone, and started browsing..
The problem is that after letting me browse for some amount of time, ubuntu suddenly stops receiving bytes (as seen in System Monitor > Resources > Network History graph).. And the browsers show No Internet Connection.. This happens after random durations and data amounts (ranging from 2kB to 20MB).. The Network Manager icon still shows 'eth0 connected' under Wired Networks. The phone still shows that it is connected, and I can browse on the phone's Opera browser.
I have to then click 'Disconnect' on the phone, and 'Connect' again to resume the connection. Sometimes clicking 'Disconnect' in ubuntu's Network Manager and clicking on 'eth0' helps.. but inconsistently..
Well, the disconnection phenomenon is not totally random. I have observed it more frequently when

Hello! This my first post. I am sitting at my dads place and figure I should try to get my new drive in my laptop.
Right now there is Windows xp on the current drive which I need to keep.
I have a laptop, internet, HTC thunderbolt with the usb cable and a fresh drive for the laptop.
How can I get ubuntu on the new drive?
Been googleing around and have not seen anything about using an Android phone to install Linux. Can it be done???
Thanks in advance!

Just wanted to know if there is a way to do it on ubuntu, sometimes I wonder why I totally removed windows 7 from my laptop all together, a simple partition would have done. Unfortunately htc sync aint working in wine
HTC Hero with Google Android & Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2010
Just got the HTC Hero from my local cell provider. Along with a 2 year contract... Every time I sign one of those I hear "Dirty Deeds" by AC/DC in my head. But I digress.
This phone is pretty sweet, plenty of apps, most are the same that you can get on the iPhone.
Here's the best part. It mounts in in Ubuntu. Just hook the phone up with the provided USB Cable, open up the notification window in the phone. You do this by holding the status bar at the top of the screen and slide it down to the bottom. Then you will notice a menu item which says USB Connection. Touch it, then choose "Mount" to mount this as a device.
Ubuntu recognizes the device, and you have access to the directory structure to move music, ringtones, pictures, and apps. The Owners manual is actually included as a PDF on the phone.
It does come with an app for Windows called HTC Sync, but the idea here is not have to use Windows for anything.
The actual operation of Android on the phone is
Problem with HTC Flyer
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 1, 2013
I picked up a flyer for my sister and did the upgrade to honeycomb [3.2.1]. it has been working fine for almost a week now, but all of a sudden it won't ask me what application to use for anything. if i click an mp3 file or a pdf or anything from any app, the screen darkens a little bit, but it never asks what app to use to open it, which means i would have to open the desired app, and try to point it to that file.
I am wondering if i am the only one to have this problem (after looking through google for an hour it seems that way), and if anyone knows of a way i might solve this problem. it is very annoying and difficult to deal with. i have never had this happen on my android phone or any of my friend's android devices. might a factory reset fix the problem? or rooting the device? i would prefer not to do either of those things, as this is not actually my tablet, but if it would help i would consider it.
HTC Hero Android Phone

I got a Hero a few weeks ago and I'm still learning what it can do. I downloaded Gmote the other day and I've been sat in slack-jawed amazement as I use my phone as a wifi remote for my desktop pc- opening files, running OOO presentations. Even streaming musc/films from my PC to the phone.
I'm really excited with technology again, haven't been this impressed since I 'turned linux'...
HTC Hero compatibility with Jaunty
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2009
After HTC launches HTC Hero I have been thinking to buy an HTC Hero Phone. I just would like to know about your experience with HTC Hero:
1. Does Jaunty recognize the phone when you connect it using the USB cable.
2. Is it easy to synch your contact or appointments to Jaunty?
3. Is it easy to transfer files from HTC to Jaunty and vice versa ?
4. Overall will you recommend me to get HTC Hero as a smart phone ?
