I'd like to post something I got by PM from @mobiptr who can't post here yet. He asked me to share his method to get a 14.04 fully working build so here you go :

Quote:

Because I am not a developer, I had to find an easy way to install ubuntu 14.04 the way i wanted to. Rootbind works very well, but I want to be able to switch quickly between android and lubuntu, instead of going via recovery. So following the tubuntu-threat i first installed lubuntu 12.10. with linux 3.1.10-g8c2655b-dirty kernel. I noticed that conky causes freezing so it is better to switch it off. Djills image for 14.04 did not work well for me in tubuntu, because reboot did not start android and I also could not get wifi working.
So, I simply took the time to upgrade to lubuntu 14.04.1.

I downloaded 16.4.0 drivers from nvidia (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2419974 and filled in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to get trackpad working. (still leaving nouveau drivers on). So far following the instructions of tubuntu, 12.10 has xabi 12.

In menu-preferences-software and updates, I unmarked everything under ubuntu sources and under updates

Then other sources add...
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse

In terminal (alt-ctrl-t):
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt-get clean
sudo update-manager -d

To be sure lubuntu 12.10 was complete. These commands are also used for other end of life release upgrades.

I added in other sources
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
The same terminalcommands will now upgrade to raring.

then add other sources for 13.10:
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ saucy main
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ saucy-security main
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ saucy-updates main

Again same procedure as quantal and raring.

Using this procedure for trusty went wrong, after reboot.
So i removed all other sources from sources list and re-marked all under ubuntu software. Under updates I re-marked important security updates and recommanded updates.
Then I upgraded with software updater, and completed the installation of lubuntu 14.04.1.

Now I had Lubuntu with nouveau drivers installed (maybe not necessary, but I reinstalled nouveau drivers via synaptic package manager)

So i added sources list other sources again for raring and saucy (without changing ubuntu software and updates). Put xserver.pref at it's place ( http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...648862&page=15 )

After reboot I repeated the terminal commands:
update upgrade dist-upgrade autoremove and clean, needed files are downgraded automatically.
Finally, via menu-preferences-software and updates-additional drivers you can choose automatic installation of propriety driver nvidia-tegra for hardware acceleration.

Install compton (add autostart compton -b) For what it's worth: es2gears 2>/dev/null starts around 500 fps, after a while over 800 fps). I downloaded oneclick recovery from the market in android and gave it an ubuntu icon, so now I have a oneclick start to lubuntu 14.04.1 with hw acceleration. No problems with sound.

I didnt try yet, but sounds promising. I'll give a try when I got time for this.
If anyone else want to do it ?

If anything this is useful to fix the raring sources. So in the images I posted you should simply edit /etc/apt/sources.list and replace
Code:
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
with
Code:
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ raring-updates main restricted universe multiverse
I wasn't aware of the old releases repository and this should fix the errors during updating and upgrading

The old-releases repo does not have armhf packages

Edit - apparently it does, but my tab will not sync it
