SIze: 630MB download
Ondisk: 2gb+ (Sorry, I will trim in the next build)


What works:
- Tegra drivers
- Hotkeys - Use shift+ Hotkey
- Media hotkeys work for VLC use ALT + Hotkey
- Vol keys (rockers) on the side
- OSK on boot for login - You need to press the button next to shutdown to get it to come up.. click twice.
- Sound - but cuts out on some mp3s and will not come back until the tab is fully powered down and back up (not just restart)
- Touchegg
- Bluetooth
- Firefox Youtube (HTML5), VLC video play back (as seen in the youtube in post two) -- This may not work.. BUT!!!!!!!! copy the youtube link to VLC and play it..... It works much better!

- HDMI
- Web / Video camera via USB Logitech C110
--------MODULES addins for kernel .10.12 only
- USB DVD PlayBack works with VLC
- USB DVD rw
- USB Audio / Sound
- USB Network adaptors - dm9601


Fixes from other builds:
- Screen will go to black to save power.

THIS NEEDS TO BE UPDATED... OLD
How to change things in this build Post #157



Problems: (in order of what makes me angry)
- Icon theme RED Icon network manager-- Fix here (sorry)

- SD card will not auto mount, delete key will not work - Fixes here: POST 268

- Sound .. Is buggy and crashes .. May need new driver or patch for alsa.. Needs to be fixed..
- Mic does not pickup audio
- GPS
- Cam (both)
- tilt sensors
- Maybe 3G internet.. I don't have a TF101G to test that it works.
--- I am working on the sound issues with kernel modules..

FIXED Problems in this build:

- Sound headphones does not kill speakers sound (they both play) - see workarounds
- VLC crashes when playing mp3s.. use gnome-mplayer for now
- Keyboard: Bluetooth hotkey.. I have the code but didn't add it to disable bluetooth, auto brightness hotkey
- ZRAM -- see post #166
- adduser /sbin commands don't work.. run this: export PATH=$PATH:/sbin:/usr/sbin

If you know of more bugs let me know..



Workarounds:
Firefox can be slow.. Install "no script" plugin.. then its heaps better
Keyboard and mouse can stop if the battery is getting low.. Just redock
- Sound headphones does not stop the speakers playing sound - Use alsamixer on command line and press M on the one you want to mute
- If the sound does not work at all..Run alsamixer and toggle DRC (m button)



What can I do with this that I can't do with Android?
USB printing
Full Desktop and mouse etc..
Crack wifi
Use a second screen.. not as a clone - via HDMI
DVD burning
DVD playback
Lubuntu / ubuntu apps
Get frustrated!

Ubuntu 14.04 CORE With Tegra drivers by @jrohwer

Core Shell ubuntu see post: #233

INFO:
Ubuntu 14.04 base system. It boots to the console. It has all the xserver packages set up and pre-installed correctly. All the convencience scripts are there, the Tegra drivers are installed, firmware for wifi and bluetooth is pre-installed, init script for bluetooth fixed, kernel modules for rootbind kernels are preinstalled.

Download links on the post above.. I will mirror later

Fixes from other builds:
- System does not fully turn off the sreen / keyboard so it can always be woken up from keyboard press - this can be changed from power manager
- Auto usb mount
- Cheap usb network adaptors driver installed dm9601
- Play, Next and back hot keys talk directly with gnome-mplayer.. So play your mp3s with that
- Audio controls (hotkeys) on have been mapped to turn down both the headphones and speakers.. at the same time .. As the mixer does not have a "master" control. (see problem / workarounds)

Mini 12.04.4 LTS ::: Ubuntu Core with LXDE armhf
No Frills! .. Nothing really installed at all.. Add what you want Minimal install

-Super small 320mb unpacked - 160mb packed
-Very light on ram (160Used on startup)
-Tegra drivers installed & working
-Wifi works
-HDMI works
-Video playback + Youtube HTML5 works

Not tested / note included: Bluetooth, Hotkeys (scripts are present).. to turn down brightness open new terminal and type brightnessdown


NOTE:
This build maybe very annoying for some people.... It does not include the normal Lubuntu things.. It also does not include Firefox or VLC by default (to save space).. It has just about nothing // People who want a full desktop can wait until I build a full Lubuntu ones with drivers next week sometime
Also usb needs to be manually mounted..
All the above can be installed by using your normally apt-get install firefox vlc ..etc!

Some images:
HDMI with TV

What is included

See now it works with a TV

It has all the keybinds done to it and it auto logins in.. The dock is buggy and will need to be undocked and redocked a few times to get the keyboard / touchpad working
sound, touchpad, multitouch, etc working

This build has all the fixes as 14.04 v1.1 But without the power switch fix.. If you want that please see this post:
Post-15

No nvidia drivers installed.. Please fell free to break it your self

---------------------








What's new in v1.1 ::: Xubuntu armhf

Newest bleeding edge updates from Ubuntu launchpad + new Firefox + lightdm (ugly yellow slash on start)

Keybinds setup for: WiFi off on, touchpad off on, brightness controls up down, start Firefox, start terminal, screenshot

:::::Hold "shift" and press the key you desire .. Ie touchpad button a long the top. :::::
note this will only work currently in the Xubuntu session (default) will not work in xfce or openbox.

Plus black screen on fix - with hack from post #15
New panel shortcut for XDA Developers tf101 forum.. For easy troubleshooting help
New performance monitor on the right: CPU, memory, disk access
Hidden Bluetooth icon and power while on charge
Fixed / hidden mount errors on / when booting up post #53
Now includes all modules for all versions of rootbind kernels
Some apps package cleanup
Fixed panel dots for spacer
Fixed some autoload apps
Turned off power settings for suspend
Turned off screensaver

What's not working:
Bluetooth
HDMI
Camera
GPS
Extra USB adaptors ie: USB Ethernet
Volume for system and volume rockers
... Sound does work but only in some apps
Graphics drivers opengl - no support yet?
If you know of more bugs let me know.. I will see about what I can do to fix it.. or hack away at it ^_^
----
system will take a while to start
First login -firefox will take a bit to open
You may have two errors about libc.. this is fine, they don't come back second reboot..


Unpacking takes 38mins in Android.. It can cause the screen to go black and not come back when its unpacking.. Just leave it!! If you really want to see what its doing set the timeout to none or undock re dock and press the power button..

What is says on the box
Includes everything so you can point and shoot
Working fine::
-modules,WiFi,touchpad,touchegg,sound etc..

Ok here we go:
User: tf101
Password is: ubuntu
-please change this for your own piece of mind


HOW TO:
In Android..

Rename your current linuxroot if you have one using mv

Download and unpack into /data/linuxroot

Comannds:
Code:
su
busybox mount -o remount,rw /
--Rename old Linuxroot
mv /data/linuxroot /data/linuxroot-old

mkdir /data/linuxroot
chmod 755 /data/linuxroot
cd /data/linuxroot
tar -pxvzf /pathto/tf101-14.04-xubuntu-armhf.tar.gz
busybox mount -o remount,ro /

(This will take bloody ages maybe 40mins+ ... Go have a few coffees) - its faster if your going from micro SD


Reboot and you should be away

If you have any issues just delete /data/linuxroot and mv your old one back

The first time it maybe a bit slow to get going... Just wait... You maybe need to start without dock attached
-second boot should be better..

Problems:
Mine always loads with root file system needs to be checked.. Can get past it by pressing i ... I tried scanning it with the tools in this thread.. But no love for me.. I tired also formatting /data still coming up

As this is a 14.04 build it can't include the nvidia drivers.. So that's not so fun... I am planning to build a 12.04.4 one soon ... Maybe someone has a solution ? Last time I tried to get it working I had to reinstall

Also HDMI does not work.. I am guessing because the nvidia drivers are not installed..

Brightness buttons.. See post 41 - for a hack

Its in the Australia time zone use this to fix for you:
sudo dpkg --configure tzdata

Maybe Audio maybe not work in some apps... I tired to fix up pulseaudio .. By removing it... Anyway audio is working for me with mplayer -ao alsa something.wav
your may need to run alsamixer and enable speaker (3rd tab along) press M to enable it

Performance notice while using firefox chrome etc.. Using ABP helps speed uploading time for pages and helps using pages... Otherwise your loading flashy, gifs other useless things that slow down your TAB

Workaround for the below:
Screen saver turns screen off - This is very annoying -- You can turn off the screen saver or wait for me to fix it
If it goes black and you can turn it back on do this: Pressing power button first (screen will go a little bright).... Then ctrl + alt (search) then f1 (the second key along the top) .. Then alt+ Ctrl and f7 -- And then screen will be back........
see page 2 post 1 for fix for this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...57&postcount=1




I have some code I am working on to get the power bind to do what we just did - will have a fix that can be easily applied
If anyone wants to have a look:
https://github.com/djdill/TF101/tree/hotkeys
... Yes I know I am not using git right

Nice I think you can rename your thread to be more general and add more img ? What do you think ?
( I mean like a img repository for rootbind kernel )
I'll try to do a img with different DE and things.
Thanks for your work anyway, really appreciated !

BTW, x3maniac, if you read this, glad to see you again around here

For our discussion about 13.10 and 12.04, I think I'll make a 13.10 then, like this we got plenty of choice Nvidia driver are supported until 13.10, and not supported anymore since 14.04

@Kingzak34 Good idea! .. OK so I have renamed it now.. let me know what you think.. If you can thank of a better name.. Just paste it and I will change it

OK didn't know about the support up until 13.10.. I was never able to get it to work past 12.10.. Maybe I am doing something wrong.. I was looking and your thread about installing the drivers.. Or is it better just to do it via the software centre?

Somehow I magically fixed the libgl.... Its even fixed in the tar.gz that I uploaded .... Don't know how I did that.. But now I can run Midori (browser).. Faster then FF on the tablets and lighter

I am going to be building more from Monday.. I want to get more fixed with this image (I think it can start quicker and fix some of the errors in syslog)

And I want to fully remove pulseaudio and get ALSA working by default .. Currently in the img.. Audioapps are trying to load to pulseaudio... Even when its full removed.... NFI why that is happening.. anyway more fun time fixing
Oh and the screen fixes for idle .. never turn the screen off correctly


re x3maniac he PMed me a few times today! He working on a another kernel ... But he does not have much free time so its likely going to be a long process .. Anyway this kernal appears to be working fine for me..

For 13.10, the better way to get nvidia driver is through software center I think. But you maybe right, maybe 12.04 as LTS version can be better, I'll try too.

Anyway, thanks for your work, I'll try to do some too, when I'll got more free time

For whatever reason I could not get the 12.04 core to upgrade to 12.04.4 .. My next plan to to use the pre installed desktop image and roll the 12.04.4 over the top and see how much it breaks .... Then it will be current LTS with support for a little while longer.... If they fixed (didn't drop nivida support) in 14.04 it would be perfect

Yeah I was looking at a fix for that last night... Anyway you can get around it by pressing power button first.... Then alt + Ctrl f1 (the second key along the top) .. Then alt+ Ctrl and f7

The ability to install nvidia drivers depends on whether nvidia will release the appropriate versions. It depends on the Xorg video abi, which has to match the version that is installed on your system. (Ubuntu 13.10 is abi-14, 14.04 is abi-15). Abi-14 has been released so there is an nvidia-tegra package in Ubuntu 13.10. It remains to be seen whether nvidia will release the abi-15 driver for ventana (tegra2 cpus). Even if Ubuntu does not provide the package you can still download the driver from Nvidia directly and install it yourself.

I would revisit this page once 14.04 has been "officially released" and if nvidia provides the binary driver for abi-15 then that should be no problem.
