Xserver chroot on TF700t
I've been running kexecboot native Linux for a while now and this has been a side project of mine since bumping into Linux Deploy. I really wanted to run my Linux and have my Android too... So, I got tired of trying to get Linux to run on the Android frambuffer and went this route... This runs pretty fast on my tablet. Resources seem way lower than a vnc chroot. And running on an xserver has more advantages.
This is only tested so far with an image file and LXDE (I will be trying a microsd directory install soon
XFCE4 and microsd partition install running fine also.
Use gparted to partition your microsd.
I used a SanDisk Class 10 16gb UH-I (8.5mb/s write and 24.5mb/s read) partitioned to 12gb fat32, 4gb ext4
These are just the settings I used that worked first for me. Play around, you can't hurt anything...
