Prompt [DEV][WIP][OS] Ubuntu Linux on Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P31xx

What do you need:

- Micro SD card (at least 2Gb)
- Computer running Linux (to setup the sdcard)
- Otg cable + hub + keyboard and mouse (no touchscreen support(yet))
- Galaxy Tab 2 GT-P31xx!

Installation:
1. Download the neeeded files(cant post links,sorry):
Rootfs "releases.linaro .org/13.08 /ubuntu/raring-images/alip/ linaro-raring-alip-20130826-474.tar.gz"
Kernel + modules "koti.mbnet .fi/racer123/ubuntu.tar.gz"
2. Format your Micro SD as ext4.
3. Extract both archives to the root of your Micro SD.
4. Insert the SD card to your tab, boot to recovery and install "ubuntukernel.zip" from the SD.
5. Reboot. You should see the Galaxy Tab logo and then black screen with just the backlight on.
6. To go to the GUI, press CTRL+ALT+F1 on your keyboard and then CTRL+ALT+F7
7. To bring up the wifi, run "sudo modprobe dhd firmware_path=/lib/firmware/bcmdhd_sta.bin nvram_path=/lib/firmware/nvram_net.txt"

I don't have any otg hardware, so that's why I haven't tested it. But as soon as the touch screen issue is fixed I'll run that bad boy for a test!

The resoluution is probably wrong fot P5113 but otherwise it should work. But without otg Linux is much useless.

I seen videos of Ubuntu running on the tab 2 but it seemed laggy in all of the videos. Is it to laggy to worry about it with a p3 113?

Try it yourself.
Also I have been busy lately so I havent't had time to compile P51xx version. If you want it, just wait.
