    Who told you there were three methods and is the number more important that actually installing Linux?

    Did you google-> linux on android phone and see all of the information that is available?

    You can install Busybox Libraries, and install Terminal , and checking if everything is properly working, then download and install the scripts and the Ubuntu system.

    you’ll need three apps:

    Linux Deploy
    VNC Viewer
    First install BusyBox. BusyBox gives your phone access to Linux commands that it wouldn’t otherwise have and is required for a number of root apps to work. Once you’ve installed it though, you don’t need to worry about it again.
