[Q][DEV] Linux on P760?
I have a few questions for our great devs out there.
I would very much like to see Linux running on our hardware (and of course build it in progress), but I have a few questions to ask you all.
First of all - how does our bootloader work? I mean - it's unlocked, right? This should mean we can flash any kernel we want (including an Android-free linux) and all should be fine? From what I understand there is no risk of bricking our device?
The bootloader's blocks aren't vulnerable to overwriting by a bad kernel?
Secondly - Since our SoC is the same as Pandaboard and Pandaboard has Ubuntu built for it - it's just a matter of drivers and libraries, right?
I want to take on Ubuntu ARM first to see how far can I get, but eventually I would love to use Sailfish OS when it comes out.
Do you guys think it's even possible on our bootloader to run this stuff? I'm not really sure how all this works at the "ground" level and I don't want to brick my phone just by trying fastboot commands.
Any pointers or just comments appreciated.
