Default TF300T Linux Development Thread (For all your Linux concerns)

I figured I would make a Linux Thread for this device that was more broad than the current Xubuntu one that already exists here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2190847 . I am going to figure out how to port different distros to this device over the next few months and I am aiming at getting Fedora, Debian, and possibly Arch Linux if I have time. I was disappointed by the lack of Linux development for this tablet so I decided to learn how to port to this tablet myself and take action.


*********CURRENT ROMS AND BUILDS OF LINUX FOR THE TF300T (I am not the developer of any of the builds below.)*********

---TF300T Xubuntu 13.04 : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2190847---

---TF300T Arch Linux : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1918849---

---TF300T Ubuntu Touch : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2165171---

---TF700T Kexecboot Linux (not sure if compatible with TF300T or not.) : http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2387133---

If anyone would like me to add something to this list shoot me a PM and I will gladly add more. I have a busy life though so I am not going to always be able to add things 24/7.

I have a general idea of what I have to do but currently my tablet is bricked and I'm working on getting it fixed (long story on why it is bricked). Anyway does anyone have an idea on where I could start with porting. Again I know generally what I have to do but I don't know where I can start learning to do so.

what kind of brick? mine was down for a long time becuase of a botched wipe and i lost recovery, the only thing i could do was get to fastboot...but any command would lock it up other than "erase" and turned out there was an extra partition/section that needed to be erased before i could flash a stock img/recovery back to it and start from scratch again.

I tried flashing a recovery from terminal inside of twrp and so the device loops at the ASUS logo and won't go into fastboot or boot into the system or go into recovery. I don't know what to do.

I'm not fixing my tablet guys. I'm probably going to just purchase a MINIX Neo X-8H android set top box instead because it costs almost the same for what I have planned repair wise.
