Default Official Ubuntu for Nexus 7

Read the OMGUbuntu post and click the link at the bottom.

http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/10/u...lable-for-devs

Or click this link

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Nexus7/Installation

Its a one click installer, just make sure you have an unlocked boot loader and a backup!

Note: You need Ubuntu to install Ubuntu on your Nexus 7

Awesome; so this is a native method for running Ubuntu on the Nexus 7? No VNC or emulation, or running on top of Android? And this does wipe out Android?

This is native, done by a canonical developer. Works surprisingly well on my 8gb. Not super fast but I can browse etc. They keyboard needs work.

Sweet

Might give it a go in the near future; I have a somewhat decent desktop just sitting doing nothing, looks like it could use some Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is great, I'm just waiting on Steam to make my full conversion. If all valve games are ported I'll be happy.

With this program no. However I'm sure its possible, but my knowledge is limited so I can't help you there. Sorry!

If anyone eventually gets a hold of the img's and can host them for us non-Ubuntu users that would be fantastic.. I might take the gamble of pushing them over without the help of an installer and see what happens.
