VERY work in progress. Wifi works flakily use an open network to play with the keyboard tends to freak out when typing in a network password.
This is a PREVIEW of what this platform will become. It is not finished. Many apps are just placeholders. The good news the system image is built and you can just plug in new ubuntu images as they become available.
to install latest daily (as of 03/23/13)
Reboot into Recovery
Backup! - expect everything to be deleted if you do not.
WIPE (wipe data/factory reset) This is required!
Flash system image
Flash Ubuntu image
Flash Layout fix
To reverse the process use adb reboot recovery - or hold power off button till it shuts down then restart in recovery - yes it's obnoxious but the reboot and power off commands are absent from ubuntu still. Once back in recovery wipe and flash a replacement android rom and you'll be back to normal.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS DO NOT FLASH THIS IF YOU CAN'T RTFM.
