Ps, does anyone know of a script to extract the ramfs (or initramfs) that works on the n2,
I have tried a few, but in the output directory when the script has finished, the is always just 2 folders called /dev and /root, and they are both empty.
Does anyone know of a working script to extract the ramfs?.

Thanks
Corey

Would be awesome! Are there already new informations about this?

BTW: Is ist also possible (like on the Asus TF201 tablet) to maybe boot Ubuntu too? Or would it be too much effort to program drivers etc?

Hi,
I have Ubuntu dual booted on my nexus 7 tablet, and that's even too small to use it on, you can't hit any buttons correctly or anything, when the Ubuntu touch is out for n2 it should be great tho

I finished compiling the dual boot kernel for n2,
First ROM boots fine, with no bugs or anything, but the second ROM doesn't boot, and it freezes at the choose ROM screen on boot when I try and select it.

I really need someone with a rooted s3 to do some things for me, but I can't seem to find anyone

Cheers
Corey

Question: what's the advantage of having dual boot? Or, to be more precise, why would I use two ROMs?

Hi,
I am still getting the problem of the second rom freezing.

I have found a few things i need to change in the code, and will try and do that soon. And see if it works then

I have been very busy studying for a microsoft exam the last couple of weeks, and getting ready to move back to england next month, so i havent been able to do much of the kernel.

I will try and get some done next week.

You say "Why" I say "Why not?"
It means u can have two roms installed, and you don't have to keep restoring cwm backups to change ROMs.
So I could have omega and stock installed at the sane time (or eventually cm and stock )

To test bleeding edge features, like cyanogenmod 10.1. Even for pure geek pleasure
