flashing the kernel is as easy as placing it on the SD Card, booting into CWM and selecting install rom from zip.

For the xoom tut. here

Only problem is they aren't using the nvidia nvflash tools, so they have to recover android from back up. Would love to see a dual boot system.

Yes, but first we gotta make sure we can get the kernel and such working.

Jhinta, post your files, and I'll give them a whirl

sorry i'm ad work . when i'm home ill send a ramdisk and kernel.
totaly ontested ,

some info
ramdisk has scripts to mount and chainroot a rootfs
kernel is build with vt support. also reading from xoom , some patches need to be added , but lets get flashing started ( boot.img only )first as i dont want to wipe the whole system , there is no point to that.

as im reading the xoom guid , they can easly flash the boot.img i'm to recovery , as you can flash and even update bij nvflash , they already have multiboot i think they just dont know it yet

the have fastboot , the just have to do , fastboot flash recovery boot.img
and booting ubuntu is like booting to recovery.

the only problem is that you dont have cwm , but then again they can releas nvflash files to update. and maybe in time a multiboot (triple) wil be made

Jhinta,
I suggest that you go the IRC channel #asus-transformer and ask about nvflash as the developers hang out in that channel. RaYmAn and Roach are the users that may have the answers you need. Both are located in Europe so you may have to account for the time difference from your location.

here are the files.

i didnt test this at all , as i dont know how to flash them . so if the work i dont know .
but when i do know how to flash this i can start building and corecting things.

1 get a way to flash ramdisk and kernel ( boot.img = kernel and ramdisk )
2 if flashing is oke get framebuffer device active for error handeling
3 fix mount points.
4 we are done. only thing left is options.

First thing would be makeing a boot.img from the zImage and initrd.

Have you tried ./split_bootimg.pl boot.img with a boot.img for the transformer.
This give you important information for buliding a woriking boot.img for the transformer.

I think the size of the sections are important. Split_boot_imp.pl should give you somthing like:
Page size: 2048 (0x00000800)
Kernel size: 1388548 (0x00153004)
Ramdisk size: 141518 (0x000228ce)
Second size: 0 (0x00000000)
Board name:
Command line: no_console_suspend=1
Writing boot.img-kernel ... complete.
Writing boot.img-ramdisk.gz ... complete.
