Multiboot by cmw.zips

This will restore cwm on recovery partition.
And multiboot by flashing Ubuntu.zip or Android.zip

Create flash-recovery.sh in flashkit dir !!

The code below wil not work unless you provide some info on witch flash mode you used !!!!!
Like me i have selected flash-linux-android.sh,
View it and find witch --config file it use as you can see below.

--->--configfile ./flash/android-linux.cfg <---

Code:
#!/bin/sh
nflash --bct ./images/transformer.bct --setbct --configfile ./flash/android-linux.cfg --bl ./images/bootloader.bin --odmdata 0x300d8011 --sbk 0x1682CCD8 0x8A1A43EA 0xA532EEB6 0xECFE1D98 --sync
nflash -r --download 5 ./images/recovery.img
To Make this code above work replaced nflash with ./nvflash -> then sudo sh flash-recovery.sh

Android <-- Prime 1.7 kernel !! you can select any kernel you want !!

Doesn't seem to be working for me, i edited the sh file and changed to the proper config. I have linux installed as the default OS and android on the recovery so i changed --configfile ./flash/linux-default.cfg. I get unknown command sync and connection failed nverror on transferring over the recovery image. Dunno if its on my end or not anybody have any ideas?


Edit i pasted my info into a nano terminal file i created and reflashed and everything worked, downloading primes new release to test this out with. Thanks jhinta so far this is looks like a great way to keep us updated with future roms.

Do you have a recovery.img in dir images?

It appears to be a problem with my original sh script but copying the contents over to a nano file thru terminal fixed the issue, everything successfully copied over now and i flashed over the linux.zip and linux booted with no problems at all. Just downloading primes new zip now to test out android. Thanx

Just flashed the new prime 1.7 zip and booted up to it without any issues, rebooted and went into recovery and flashed linux.zip and it booted directly into linux Nice work

hi, i have big problem
running with sudo script flash-linux-android.sh
with this line

./ubuntu/abootimg-x86_64 --create linux.img -f ./ubuntu/bootcfg/bootimg.cfg -k ./ubuntu/zImage -r ./ubuntu/initrd.img

i have this error:

./ubuntu/abootimg-x86_64: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected

I have not figured out how to change the line:
./ubuntu/abootimg-$(uname -i) --create linux.img -f ./ubuntu/bootcfg/bootimg.cfg -k ./ubuntu/zImage -r ./ubuntu/initrd.img

how do I change it?
Best regard

try running abootimg from command and see if you get output if not build it from source
just go to abootimg dir and try run abootimg

Simple Version
Here's a simple nvflash package I put together to make things easy. It uses Jhinta's CWM files (incl.) and Prime 1.7. Just add ubuntu.img (from the OP) and run download-ubuntu.sh. (You'll still need to run the firmware injection script for drivers though.)
