So even though it is written Clemsyn kernel it is _that modded by you? You should change the name in the installer because it is confusing

I have Cromi but no nvflash blobs. My main concern is stability and brickability of something like this.

Thanks.

The today release is only a new installer. A new Ubuntu build will be release this weekend. However I have used the available one in the OP and it is totaly perdect for daily use. Once you've configured it weel, I feel no difference with my pc. The only problem for now is that unity is slow, but other desktop environment work perfectly and as fast as they should. I personnaly do not like Unity, so it is not a bg deal for me

When you intall it it creates a file on your internal sorage with 10GB or what storage you used i think if you move it to your SD it will probably work since it checks a lot of partitions for that file.

To remove the ubuntu just delete that file and install a new kernel i think..hope it helps

Well tried moving it but doesn't work. Also if I upgrade to newer version do i lose all my set up.


ps. does it work with cromi 3.3

Any progress on the hidden SSID wifi issue? How can I help debug?

Any chance we can get a CM10.1 kernel for dualboot?

Hmmm... I can't test this, but I will prepare this kernel image, ok.

The second time i boot ubuntu after install it, i get a screen where i just get some kind of a shell, where i can login but i don't see any GUI i'm sure i pressed 1 at start.
WOW this is very strange sometimes it happens other times it doesn't happen.

LSMOD (SHELL without UI)
zram
bcmdhd
cfg80211

I think this just happens if i reboot or shutdown ubuntu and try to go to ubuntu again. If i go to android and after that to ubuntu all is ok.
Any idea why? and how to solve it?
Can this have something to do with ubuntu files be on android /data/ubuntu/*? Do you recomend to untick this option on the installation?
Any other recomendations?

I reinstalled the ubuntu and still got this. Even with dock. Without dock i can't even login because i don't have virtual keyboard in this shell.

Did you install another deskyoo environment? It did it to me when I installed gnome-shell. It didn't with other DE though.

Completly clean install did not changed anything.

Hi, I have an odd question. Will normal minecraft java version work on this Ubuntu? It should, but I didn't try it out yet.

Hi Legoracer69, I have tried this, see my post and oblib's response:

Updating the lwjgl libraries and OpenJDK6 and 7 don't help, so I found something somewhere that hinted that Oracle JRE 7 (or 6 or 8) is needed. On Oracle's Page (again can't put the link--grrr!--but it's the jre7 download page, with 1880261 in the url), I am not sure what to pick for the Linux install--x86 or x64? I thought the tf700 was neither, so not sure where to go from here. Thanks again!

Rabits also replied in another post and said he will look into solving it. I think I found another issue like this, BTW--I can't seem to install flash plugins as they are also not compiled for ARM. Can anyone direct me otherwise? Thanks!
