This may be a stupid question which has a simple answer (no). But I thought I'd ask anyway.

When the ubuntu for tablets comes out on Thursday, will it be possible for Kindle Fire 2 users to flash it just like how cyanogenmod is flashed (TWRP) or the method described here? - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install

I'm guessing not, but worth a try.

Feel free to use this for discussion.

Edit: Turns out Ubuntu mobile is utilising some of cyanogenmod's code - https://plus.google.com/u/0/11504942...ts/cYtVT2pb9ZT

Re: Ubuntu for tablets
Well of course we would need to get the kernel integrated into it but yeah i think we could get it to work. I think it'd be amazing

I think the dual boot might be an issue as you would run out of space on the device. Must agree that Ubuntu tablet looks very cool and makes JB look slightly dated =-O

Looks like it will be possible after all. I'm quite excited to see what happens, please post updates here if you hear of any. I'd like to trial this ASAP.

Re: Ubuntu for tablets
Actually, I came to this forum after taking a long break from modding specifically to see if anyone had taken a look at the tablet version of Ubuntu along with the Ubuntu phone code released a few days ago. I'm in the process of setting up a machine as my modding environment right now so I can poke around a bit with both as soon as I manage to locate a copy of the tablet os.

Holy crap. This is VERY possible. Canonical uses CM10 as their base for Android, so in theory any dual core device capable of running CM10 can run Ubuntu Touch Preview without much trouble. Tomorrow night, I'll give it a try and see if I can build it using their instructions and your CM-based rom (which is what I am already running on my KF2 anyway)
