Any hope for native linux in the near future?
We already have the ability to boot multiple ROMs and plenty of kernels available. Ubuntu Touch is not being built because it is based off of CM10 (4.2) which flo/deb never ran and as a result are unsupported. However, what is stopping devs from using the kernels available to boot full ARM versions of ubuntu, debian, arch or gentoo? I've looked at the nexus 7 2012 and there has been plenty of such development, even sooner after its release. Is this nexus doomed to solely run android due to the qualcomm processor it possesses?
Also, please note, I'm not looking to run linux INSIDE android (chroot method). That is possible on just about every android device known to mankind and nothing special. I want to run linux as a ROM. This has been previously accomplished on popular tablets like the nexus 7 2012, note 10.1 and the transformer prime, just to name a few.
