[HowTo] Native Ubuntu - Post Install Questions Here not in [DEV]
PLEASE DO NOT POST QUESTIONS ON HOW TO GET THIS TO WORK IN THE [DEV] Native Ubuntu !! THREAD... POST THEM HERE
I would like to thank all those who spent a lot of time working on this project. I do not have the required skills and have not contributed other than writing this tutorial. This is a combination of steps and files from the Nvflash unbricking released!
and [DEV] Native Ubuntu !!
threads. Please thank those who brought this to us!
The download contains the windows drivers and dlls for this to work (thanks to Bumble-Bee (Apache14), rayman84) and my edits of Jhinta's scripts flash.sh and restore.sh. All I did was convert the coding from linux to windows.
Downloads are in the first post
of the DEV forum with the newest version from 15 July.
Please be aware that this may cause your transformer not to boot. If this happens please see the Nvflash thread above to restore to Prime 1.4. After this you can install a recovery to flash any rom you want. YOU COULD LOSE ALL YOUR DATA but if all goes to plan you will not. Neither I nor any of the devs are responsible for any damage or loss of data.
This should not affect any data from your Android Install.
It only changes the boot.img and boots a root file stem that is located on the removable Micro SD card. When restoring android this will restore the boot.img (from prime) which will allow you to boot into your android ROM without making any changes.
