Default [Guide]Samsung Ativ Smart PC Pro XE700T1C Dual boot Windows 8-8.1 and Android



ANDROID ON INTEL ARCHITECTURE
About
Project summary
Android on IntelŪ Architecture (Android-IA) is an open source project based on the*Android Open Source Project*(AOSP). Intel is a contributor to the AOSP and provides code for enabling Android on Intel Architecture platforms. (read more: About A-IA )

this is a thread for installing, exploring, discussing dual boot Win 8-8.1 and Android for XE700T1C, and I have XE700T1C-A01AE which is one of many variants of XE700T1C, in the official site of A-IA only XE700T ( for installation see These instructions )is supported which is a whole different model, the XE700T1C comes with a keyboard dock that transfer it to laptop style, so the installation will be much easier because we don't need USB hub and USB keuboard.

I tried this on my own risk on both Windows 8 and 8.1 preview. so by doing so you accept any risk from this procedure ... be patient and read carefully before you start

Update: XE700T1C-A01US confirmed working ... Thanks to p0k3y
...


Before you Start ...

It is highly recommended that you download and install the latest BIOS firmware from Samsung while you still have windows on the device. The installer requires windows to run, and recent versions provide significant improvements.
Full Back up your PC using the Samsung recovery ( if it is pre installed ) or any back up program. And you should create recovery USB drive

HOW TO MAKE RECOVERY USB DRIVE: ------>>> Microsoft Windows 8 Support


What you need ...


1- USB thumb drive 1 Gb at least.
2- Download the latest build for Samsung XE700T installer from A-IA site ( https://01.org/android-ia/downloads )
3- Download "Image Writer for Windows" from https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer/
4- A space on your PC for Android (more details in the installation)


Preparing the USB thumb drive


1- Back up the content in the USB drive because it will be erased ...
2- Extract Samsung XE700T installer
3- Extract windows image writer tool and run Win32DiskImager.exe
4- Browse for the image you extracted from the Samsung XE700T installer
5- Select your USB drive letter and hit "Write"
6- Done


Installing .....

1- Restart your PC with the USB drive inserted and as soon as it start press "F2" or you can follow the other way which is:
A- swipe from right and enter settings from the charm bar and choose "change PC settings
B- go to general and scroll down to advance start up and press restart now
C- after restart choose "Troubleshoot"
D- then "Advance options"
E- then "UEFI firmware"
F- then "Settings"
2- After going into settings ... go to " Boot " and set " Secure boot to OFF "
3- Then from the first option select Boot device priority and put your USB in the first place.
4- Choose "Save"
5- After restart the installer begin you will get five options. select run interactive installer
6- It will ask you " do you want to reserve windows and dual boot " Type: Y
7- Then " Do you want to resize windows to make more space " Type: Y
8- You will be asked " Enter the size in Mib for Windows " and the installer calculate the minimum and maximum size and it recommends the maximum size ... if you choose that value you will get about 350 MiB internal memory for android and it is too small if you want to install large apps. so the trick is to subtract the amount you need from the maximum value for ex: if you have 116000 Mib maximum then if you type 110000 you will have a 6000 MiB for the internal memory for Android.
9- After that you will be asked " Install GummiBoot bootloader " Type: Y
10- Then set the boot menu timeout ...
11- After the installation is completed remove your USB drive and press any key to restart.
12- Done.


Note:
1- When the PC start you got options, use down key or volume down to navigate. up key or volume up key to select.
2- After the first boot of windows you may be asked to do disc check...


Things you may need in Android:

Google services framework and Google Play store. Download and extract (Zip in the attachment)



And this how to install it

After connecting to Wi-Fi, open the browser and download a file manager with root capability for ex: search for ES File manager, download, install, open the file manager and then root explorer then Mount R/W and set all the options to RW.
copy Google services and play store to: system/app ... then change their permission to rw- r-- r--
image
Exit the file manager and pull the quick setting toggles area from the upper right corner and select power off " this is how to turn off Android "
Turn on the PC again and enter android and open play store and enter your user name and password .... because adding account from setting will not work and force close it...
In play store there are many apps that set to be not compatible but it may work and if I remember for example angry birds space free is working fine after I transfer and install it. so you can try...


Another thing you must try ... Is the Xposed framework by @rovo89 thanks to him for x86 support...
Link to original post ...
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1574401
Xposed installer 2.3.1 in the attachments... And scrennshots in the second post ...

Known Bugs:

1- Auto brightness is working by default even if disabled
2- If you want to use the on screen keyboard you have to disable the hardware keyboard after each reboot.(shortcut found in the notification area)
3- Battery left percentage is ok at start up ... but then it is not updating ...
4- Tell me to add if i forget something

Default Useful info

keyboard shortcuts:
ESC = Back
Windows home = Android Home
Alt+Tab =switch between opened background applications
Ctrl+P = settings
Ctrl+M = settings/all applications
Ctrl+N = Nova launcher settings (if installed)
Ctrl+S = play store (in Nova launcher if installed)
Ctrl+W = select wallpaper for home screen
Ctrl+Alt+Delete = kill android and restart ( don't do it because you may lose data )
Fn + (F6 or F7 or F8) = mute, volume down , volume up ---- respectively
Fn+ F4 =home ( so pressing windows home button is easier )
In home screen , typing any letter will trigger search
i will add more if i find or remember

How many times does it have to be said, it wont work.

AndroidIA is custom tailored for intel core series processors not atom. Clovertrail as in the xe500t is also hardware locked to windows 8 (no idea why).

That would require NTFS drivers installed in Android; I know how to do it in "normal" Linux but have never attempted with Android.
Win8/Windows RT projects:
List of desktop apps for hacked RT devices

WP8 projects:
Native Access WebServer and Libraries
WP8 Interop Unlocks
Storage Cleanup tool

WP7 projects:
XapHandler, Root Webserver, OEM Marketplace XAPs, Bookmarklets collection (Find On Page), Interop-unlock hacks.


Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.

I use the micro SD card slot as a shared storage... So everything there can be accessed from both operating systems...
