We had already seen Google’s Nexus S that ships with Android 2.3 by default boot MeeGo before this, but now someone has taken it one step further and gotten Ubuntu Linux running on the phone.

There isn’t any flashing of firmware required in this hack as the file is loaded onto internal memory, though you’ll need Fastboot to load the image.
