This is an attempt to build a completely clean installation of xubuntu for the tf300tg (and probably tf300t). Most notably it does not reuse the ac100 ubuntu package.
I also want it to be as completely documented as possible starting from an official ubuntu repository and kernel source, until everything is working. Which does not mean it is for a complete beginner to reproduce...
It's not (yet) packaged : you at least need to be able to install a blob for the kernel, and a rootfs to a dedicated partition.
It's also not yet as cleaned up and documented as I would for the kernel side of things.
Everything is done on device on (and for) a tf300tg but as been reported to work on tf300t.
Most of the hard work was done by others. I mostly started from rabit's tf700 ubuntu, and added some insight from cb22 work on arch to get something working.
*** STATUS ***
What works :
- it boots into a clean xubuntu dm/desktop, with wifi (improved), 3g
- it also boots into android (stock, didn't try cm)
- 3g also works under android (new)
- touchpad / touchscreen
- 3d acceleration (version 16.3 of nvidia drivers)
- cpu and gpu overclock (respectively to 1,5 GHz and 446 MHz)
What I know doesn't work, isn't there yet :
- some key remapping (esc, alt, ...)
Many other things I didn't check (sensors ?).
*** HOWTO install ***
0. of course you can break many things doing that ; you should have access to nvflash (never had to use it though) and with a recovery installed (I'm on twrp 188.8.131.52)
1. unpack xubuntu_tf300tg_rootfs-0.1.2.img.lzma to the internal storage and move / rename to linux/rootfs.img (/data/media/linux/rootfs.img)
1bis. you can change your keyboard layout in /etc/default/keyboard (replace "us" by whatever is your locale)
2. install the kernel blob using fastboot or "dd if=xubuntu_tf300tg_kernel-0.1.2oc.blob of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p4"
You should be able to reboot into xubunfu (or android).
3. log in as guest, from "user and groups" in the "settings manager", add one user, set password, change account type to administrator, add to sudo group (root password wil be asked : root)
4. logout, then login into your newly created user
5. open "language support" from the settings manager, and when it says missing locales, either choose install if you want "en" or "ask me later" if you want something else (in which case you can chose to install your own language, and configure them on the "regional format" page ; don't forget to apply system wide on both pages
6. change root password
Your second reboot should be more satisfying
*** HOWTO improve ***
1. find out what does not work and tell in the thread
2. understand what is documented bellow and propose correction / evolutions in the thread
3. don't hope for frequent updates : I do that alongside a more than full time job and tending to a two years old child. Still I will update.
