Well first you must know my setup. I have completely wiped everything including webOS from my device.

But I used tptoolbox to create cyanogenmod partitions. Then gave 1.5Gb to system. 1.0Gb to cache, and 8.0Gb to data. Then I flashed jshafers cm11 zip then flashed the sailfish zip. It takes about 2 minutes for sailfish to boot.

Would there be any reason why start-user-session.service and [email protected]e take 30+ seconds each during boot?

Is there a way to dual boot this in a modern way without using Ninjaswag or a deprecated method with kexec. Would be cool to have a partitionning method with the TP Toolbox.

Yeah, i tried both 2 years ago and idk why but my tab don't seem to like those kexec stuff. I never got it to have it working right for the touchless version and ninjaswag's touch was not working at all. I am currently always using pac roms on kitkat and don't plan to upgrade soon nor remove it, already removed webos. It's just that looking at this thread with everyone saying it's the best linux based alternative to android make me currious and looking at the what's working on the first post make me impress that there's finally a good Linux roms for the tenderloin. Well, something like a partitionning script with moboot support would be great or direct support from the tp toolbox. This community will always impress me with ther HTC HD2 of the tablet, making it run the 5.1.1 lollipop roms.

This doesn't require it's own partitions, just a kernel in /boot. You do need a data/media setup, and I have my data partition at 10GB right now.

I would also look at Will's 3.4 Arch

Hello, how did you resolve the black screen issue? I installed both linked cm11- and afterwards sailfishOS-images. I have dm-partitions (set up by TPToolbox) and Phil's recovery with dm-support.

Thanks,
LK

Does not work
Hello,

I downloaded CM11 from the first page of this thread. Then I tried to install it with TPToolbox:
ERROR: Invalid number of Recovery ZIPs (0)
ERROR: Checking Install ZIP files. Aborting.

What am I doing wrong? Do I have to use an other tool to flash?

Some progress
I made some progress, here is what I achieved so far.
I generally followed the ROM GUIDE on Rootzwiki (Super Easy Way) from RolandDeschain79 (sadly I can't post any links because I am new here...)
- step 1 : preparing, downloading tools...
- step 2: decided to delete webOS, like @blmvxer mentioned
- step 3: connect Touchpad with PC (Ubuntu 14.04 64bit)
- step 4: run TPToolbox_v42
- step 5A: removing webOS deleting all further data
- step 5B: installing CM-11 from @jshafer817

Step 5B needs to copy 3 files to the "ttinstall" folder:
- first the CM-11 zip file from @jshafer817
- second the ClockWorkMod (CWM). It must fit to CM-11 data media install. I used the file "update-PhilZ_CWM-jcs-dm-tenderloin-20140612.zip". You should find it somewhere, if you google for it.
- third file is the GApps. It must fit to Android 4.4.x. I used the file "gapps-kk-20140105-signed.zip". You should find it somewhere, if you google for it.

After copying the files you will have to set the partition sizes. I used the sizes which @blmvxer mentiones (1.5Gb to system. 1.0Gb to cache, and 8.0Gb to data)
After that, TPToolbox installs CM-11 to the Touchpad, which is working fine for me .

So, that's it so far. Next step is to get Sailfish to the device. I will come back here if I have any news on this .

So, now I got Sailfish running. Sadly I have the black screen issue as @lebenskuenstler has.

This is what I did:
- Reboot and follow step 3 to connect the Touchpad with your PC
- follow step 4 to run TPToolbox
- now follow step 5B and copy the Sailfish ZIP file from @jshafer817 to the "ttinstall" folder on the device
- TPToolbox will not flash this file
- reboot from the TPToolbox menu
- choose recovery mode from boot options
- select wipe data/factory reset
- choose install zip
- choose zip from /storage/sdcard1
- goto folder ttinstall and select the sailfish zip file
- reboot after installation is done

Now you have a "Sailfish" entry in the boot menu. If you select this, sailfish boots and you probably get the black screen.

If you connect the device, you can see the RNDIS network device connecting. So I'm quite sure that sailfish is running, it must be some graphic issue .

Interestingly, I can still use CM-11 which is working really nicely.
