Ah, that's right. LibreOffice is Java, so it doesn't need an ARM build. I stand corrected.

And here I was thinking there were some parts that were done in C or C++. Apparently arm is the only build that does not depend on libreoffice-base, which depends on libc6. How the h**l did they do that? (Google is not being my friend today)

Anyway, learning something new every day

3- Put the boot.img bootloader.bin recovery.img system.img ubuntu.img inside the folder and run the runme.bat.

To change between OS u will need to that the kernel via CWM, please check this
To make the touchpad working follow these steps

1- Make sure u have the Asus Sync running, your TF101 is connected and turned on in log in screen (ubuntu)

2- Run runme.bat

3- Go to ADB Menu and check if your device is recognized, if it doesnt just Kill and Start the ADB again till it recognize it

4- Go Back and enter the Dualbooting System menu

5- Go to Install touchpad support and fix conflicts with wi-fi menu then run the function 1, then 2 and so on, till the 4... if u get error's on ADB just do the step 3 again and return to the function that u were...
For those who already done this steps and changed between systems and want the touchpad back on again just do the step 3 and then go to Install touchpad support and fix conflicts with wi-fi menu then run the function 2...

Ok, ive got them all together but i cant find the recovery.img and system.img to put inside the Asus Sync installation folder. Can you please direct me to these files? Where should they be?

Kind Regards

thats the flash kit only, u will need to download the ubuntu.img, from the 1st (or 2nd, i dont know...) post... then u will need to download the rom u want (nvflash versions only!) or u can backup your current rom and then flash with that... Atm u have prime, revolver and revolution hd, but i think that prime is the only one who have a working version of nvflashd for download

i remembered just now... lilstevie, i've a question for u... why this is taking so long... not that i'm on a rush... but... u know... its a lot of time without any updates... are u gonna wait for ubuntu 11.10 to be released? it looks quite nice... and most importantly it comes with an improved virtual keyboard... i think that ubuntu devs also thought about the tablets market... so.. what u have in mind?

The delay is a combination of things, 1) setting up the buildbox, 2) Uni, 3) stability.

1 is nearly done, and should be ready any moment now,

3 is looking much better since the oneiric beta2 update,

2 is the most important thing at the moment, it is coming up to the end of the 2011 university year. I have 3 or 4 major assignment pieces due over the next 4 weeks, then exams. My career is far more important than this project.

There is also a fourth reason, but that is almost meeting its mends, I was set back a little bit by the HDD in my coding box/buildbox dying on me

School comes first. You know we all appreciate your work, especially during what must be a very stressful time in your life. Let us know, if you need anything.

as i said earlier, u find the ubuntu.img on the 1st or 2nd post, all the other files must come with the nvflash version of the rom u want... there are 2 ways to get that, just look around for prime or revolver or revolution hd nvflash version, the CWM versions wont work... the other way u can simply backup your current rom and flash ubuntu with that (note that backup wont have the bootloader.bin)
