1. i want run only ubuntu , and all the MMC disk for ubuntu , how to make partitions ?
2. your new updated rootfs already with new kernel ..touchpad .wifi .sound ..working ?
thank you again
You don't have to worry about partitioning, the script will handle it. I'd suggest waiting a little while for someone to post a guide, since the new script is a bit more complex.
Things the kernel supports:
-sound (headphones only)
(I haven't actually used the kernel in the flashkit yet, but they were working in a previous version so I'm almost certain they're working in this one)

That way we could have lilstevie's dual boot arrangement and have cwm when needed without having to connect to a computer.
Then one could boot into cwm, flash an android update, flash the backed-up kernel, and carry on as before.
Creating a new CWM zip isn't hard at all - creating bootloaders from kernel files has been working for the better part of a year. As a general rule though it's a bad idea to copy the kernel from p5 though, due to the chance of corruption. It's safer to simply write a known good copy each time.
Aside from that, most of the people on dual boot are using non-stock ROMs, so we don't have to worry about Android updates cause we always to do those manually anyway. (And making a CWM zip from the nvflash versions of those is easy).
