What happens after moboot boots uImage.CyanogenMod?

Do you get an error or just a blank screen? Can you adb shell after about 30 seconds later?

If no, format data and system and just install the system cm-10*.zip file without the rootfs..

Can you adb shell now?

Filenames should be...
cm-10.1-20130927-UNOFFICIAL-tenderloin.zip
saucy-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip

I still haven't checked... will soon..

It would be great if you could write a guide for the dual boot solution

We are now dual-booting with android. First thread updated.. read the notes carefully!

Tested! Formatted the 3 new partitions, installed the same files I uploaded to google drive.

Should work.... I tested it... one time. =) First time I got dual booting working, wiped, wrote\updated (wrote is a bad word) the partition creation script... removed my 3 lvm's.. ran the script to create them.. created the rootfs.. wiped 3 new ubuntu touch partitions again.. removed the /boot/uImage.UbuntuTouch.. installed the 2 zip files.. booted okay (with same bugs as non dual-boot,.. touchscreen can be iffy etc etc).. I then uploaded to google drive.

For those of us who don't mind having UT instead of Android can we just install this two files as usual without messing with partitions?

Thanks

Jshafer you da man.... triple boot just a quick question before I get busy installing. I am dual booting using jscullins cm10 preview which runs perfect. Do I need to restart from scratch? Or can I just use the 3 files and follow your guide meaning: first file in webos, second file cm10.x ( do I need this as I am already running cm10, or will it create the partition?) And last but not least the rootfs for Ubuntu saucy touch? Right? By the way I am using the latest moboot. Sorry for my questions but I am still a newbie but feel comfortable installing all of this.
So exciting

You can, but you would have to change the /etc/fstab file to reflect the different dm-# for the ubuntu touch partitions.. Create a new RootFS with your fstab. Check out the notes.. I added.. more.

Added that in the uninstaller.. check out those notes. Though.. I do wonder about that 10.66GB that is what my 16GB Touchpad was at with 3.0.5 stock partition size and cyanogenmod 10.1 from milaq... I remember something better but.. hmmm...

You are ready.. be sure to have novaterm installed.. You need Android and WebOS and NOT already have Ubuntu Desktop version installed. You know if you do...

Gracias!
