Do you think I would have spent more than a week trying to figure this out with all the pinning preferences etc., if it would work on saucy?
Of course it all depends what you want. If you don't need hw acceleration then by all means go ahead. However, in my opinion the graphics performance is really crappy (e.g. even scrolling through a document or in your browser).
Trust me, lots of people have spent lots of time on this. Read this thread:
I checked the configuration. All works but with raring and saucy. I didn't change conf in apt/preferences. Old packages were not changed during upgrade. I was wrong thinking that all packages were upgraded to trusty. I think it's better don't change anything in xorg. Before rootbind I used tubuntu without hw acceleration. Difference in performance is significant. You have done great work.

i've already had a try with kubuntu image without any luck. could it be for the old modules/kernel?
do you think kubuntu could be more performant than lubuntu?
if i want to have a try again with kubuntu again, how to delete the whole system directory (by android terminal emulator) and make a clean installation? could it be
sudo rm -F /data/linuxroot
Kubuntu isn't performant then lubuntu, becouse KDE is heavier then lxde. KDE distros usualy take more 350 MB (for 32 bit system) memory on start. LXDE takes about 180 MB.
Even KDE my favorite DE, for tf101 I would recomended lxde (lubuntu) as the lightest img, then xfce (xubuntu, now my default DE for tf101) and then (if you can't use other DE for some reasons) kde (kubuntu).
When I tested images I moved folders after booting Android, so I was able return to any used (configured) img later quickly
mv /data/linuxroot /data/linuxroot_lubuntu
mv /data/linuxroot_kubuntu /data/linuxroot
In this case I mean that kubuntu img was prepared (extracted) as described in the guide
