I'm looking at the installer right now, maybe I can figure it out....
When I tried it didn't see it in the internal sdcard. What you can do is put an SD card in the dock and install to it if you have the rootfs on the microSD (not sure if you can have the rootfs on dock SD to install to microSD though, didn't try that). When I tried earlier it stuck at 90% and I had to abandon the install. I don't think this is the fault of the installer though, I'll give it another go lateer with another SD in the dock. I suppose you could use the original rabits installer to write the fs to the card, then just update the boot kernel using the new installer from moreD_cn.

Once it is installed onto the SD, I really reccomend putting it in a card reader and creating an image of it using clonezilla on the PC. This makes it far faster and easier to write it back to whatever size of partition you chose. This is extremely helpful for backing it up if you are intending to try updates or installing any system apps that can wreck the whole OS.

From what I did try earlier (didn't have a lot of time though) the moreD_cn kernel worked really well on CROMIX 4.7.0, though it did freeze after about 5 mins (may need to change the voltages for using on my TF700).

I really hope this can kickstart developement on linux for out TF700's again as it would be extremely useful to a lot of people.

Can't tell you how happy I am to see you guys taking interest in this again, seems to have been stalled for a long time. Anytime I can help you with testing just let me know, I've got my NVFlash backup so I can risk a bad flash.

My guess is that the installer is looking in sdcard/ for the rootfs-...tar.lzma. This was probably just easier when @rabits built it. I can't seem to find where the installer looks for the rootfs-....tar.lzma file. Also when I modified the init.sh script he wrote to point to /storage/sdcard/linux for the rootfs.img file I put there, it doesn't find it to boot into... I'm setting it aside for today. Really got to go get some sleep before work...

I heave make link from /data/media/0/linux to /data/media/linux with command ln -s /data/media/0/linux /data/media/linux sims you can install and boot roofs.img . To found installer roofs****.tar.lzma you need to copy rootfs****.tar.lzma to microsd or to USB card or to /data/media/

P.S. I use rabit installer-0.8.0 blob to boot Linux on tf300 4.2 boot loader

Default Could you dev's make this also work on the tf201?

It is great to see this work picked up!

I hope you will make it happen and if possible please include the tf201 (prime)

Thanks.

Jos.

It isn't impossible, but your device most likely requires different drivers to ours, along with different bugs that need to be worked around. You could try this rootfs on the tf201(it works fine on my tf300t, but the tf300t is a closer sibling to the tf700) and see if it boots with your ubuntu kernel, but in the long run you need a developer with a tf201 to do the dirty work.
