This may be useful for us in the future https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/linuxonandroid .....in the meantime check out the same developer's current app in the play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...linuxonandroid it's very cool even if it's not a full Linux installation

Actually that app is pretty redundant, have a look at my post here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=982 this will run chroot linux under a proper xserver under android rather the a slow loopback vnc connection

Hey @Duckman5, Im wondering what kernel your using for kexecboot? i cant find one thats got kexec enabled, ive only got the tf300t atm, dont wanna re-compile on it

Edit: Just found _that v10 works great, _that has also included wifi modules for tf300t, actually it would seem that @workdowgs latest kexecboot installer script for tf700 would work for those interested in kexecboot

I've actually been using Graiden's kernel. I'm still running 13.04 so there's been no impetus to change anything since it's all working. God to know about _that's. I'll probably use that if I ever upgrade or decide to give 14.04 another shot.

Ive came across a couple of 14.04 images the boot and work ok, just no display drivers. Common issue with tegra3 at the moment, just noticed the nexus 7 2013's support has been dropped which is a shame.

By the way, check this for hardware accelerated video using parole, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=991 works great.

Yup...just deleted the image I had put together with the pinned X server. I could boot and start xfce, but for some stupid reason I couldn't get LightDM to start or multitouch to work. I mean WTF?? It's not like I tried that hard, though. I just don't have the time (or a complete understanding). I took snapshots and saved the stage right after installing X, though. I could post it somewhere if you want to give it a shot. You seem to be a lot more proficient than me.

Thanks for the heads up on the video. I'll definitely look into that. It always drives me nuts having to either reboot or pull out my phone if I want to watch a movie or something. Shame we can't get everything accellerated. Would love to be able to use my plex server directly without obnoxious frame skipping.

Yeah i think as far i as ill push will be 13.10 without updates from nvidia (be it the tf101 guys seem to have 14.04 with full acceleration working somehow, drivers from tegra 2 are quite different might not be such straight forward fix for us ), display drivers are quite important to me. On the 13.10 front ive got some hints that should fix any graphical artifacts we were having issues with.

Never used plex, looks to be similar to xbmc?, the guy who uploaded the *modified version of parole has some omx patches that apparently should get hardware acceleration working in xbmc on the tf300t, no time at the moment to investigate unfortunately.

Scroll up and read the last three posts immediately before yours and you will have your answer. No need to even use the search function!

(I don't mean to be the "chase off the noob" guy considering I'm not that far off from noob myself, but seriously did you read ANY of discussion? )

It's really not a problem. It's just that that question gets asked like every 0.4 seconds and the answer is always the same.
Unlike a ROM with a central maintainer or something, this has evolved into much more of a community effort with everyone chipping in what they can to make it work. I just wish that the question being asked wasn't "When can we expect 14.04?" but "What can I do to help make 14.04 happen?"
One Transformer has it (with a pinned X server) and I don't see why we shouldn't as well.
