    This is a modified version of the Tutorial found here:
    http://androlinux.com/android-ubuntu-development/how-to-install-ubuntu-on-android/

    I had to do things a bit different to get it to work correctly.

    Custom Kernels using /data to sd/ext WILL NOT WORK! The /data/local directory MUST be on the internal data partition.

    These are the few things you will need to install Ubuntu in chroot on your Galaxy Prevail:

    -Rooted device
    -Busybox 1.19.4(I used this version for testing so I know it works)
    -Android VNCServer(free)
    -Android Terminal Emulator(free)
    -Access to a computer w/ adb
    -Samsung USB drivers
    -At least a 4gb of free space on your SD card(fat partition)
    -KoumaKernel_2.5 or Stock Kernel
    (I reccomend Kouma Kernel. The overclock makes a big difference and MUST be in SSM mode or DEFAULT)


    Ok here we go:

    -First, download the following Ubuntu.zip file (from a preferred mirror), unzip and copy over the whole ubuntu directory to the SD card of your Android smartphone/tablet device:

    Download AndroidUbuntu/ubuntu.zip at DownloadAndroidROM.com

    (Turn USB storage ON then copy over the Ubuntu folder to the root directory of your SD card.)

    1) Again, make sure you have your Android smartphone/tablet

    You have to copy and add them one line at a time, plus make sure there is no numbers before the "deb" part of the repository.
