hi LIV2,

Ventana drivers are now available. http://developer.nvidia.com/linux-tegra

Any chance on helping to make GPU accel and sound work?

LIV2 this is some great work, you should make a market app for this and then make a paid version for the people who feels like donating.

This is the kind of stuff i would use to work on the go, I am a web designer and I need real text editors like gEdit and the chrooted way doesnt quite cut it. I cant try it out now my linux box is away, does usb host work for usb mouse/keyboard? How about hdmi out?

LIV2 I hope you kep this project going as it is very usefull for a whole bunch of people! Think about the market app, I would buy it instantly.

doing all this on ubuntu
thanks for this guide! was looking for something like this for long time...
i've got a question:
i'm trying to do this on my ubuntu 12.10 (you said it might work on ubuntu too).
and in the very begining - when i try to run this:
sudo /usr/sbin/debootstrap ––foreign ––arch armel squeeze deb_arm/ http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian
i get the error:
E: No such script: squeeze

i've installed squeeze (sudo apt-get install squeeze) - but again with no change.

now it's prolly some n00b thing - but i am after all, a n00b in this part.

thanks in advance!

Thumbs up Awesome --- keep it up!

awesome awesome awesome
+ THANK YOU VERY MUCH

So what is the current status on this project?

What is working and what not? ....
Sound, Camera 1 / Camera 2, UMTS, USB, GPS, WLAN, BLUETOOTH??
Can anybody please drop a few lines here on that and give us an update?

The XOOM is very nice and handy since it has UMTS right away build in.
Now we need to get rid of the nasty GOOGLE spy crap and can use that device as productive as possible.

I have read somewhere that someone was doing this but on a different device and just made a symlink to the ALSA device driver and got it working this way....

I would really love to see debia etc. working on the Motorola XOOM and like to donate, too........

I'm extremely sorry to bump such an old thread, but I was wondering if anybody had a working boot.img for this? I've tried making my own for the past two days now, however it's too large to flash. I also tried the one posted earlier in this thread, but that was too large too.

E:/ Figured it out. Use a Honeycomb boot.img as it is smaller. All working fine.
