I changed the startup file and there are two errors

Can you explain ?

First, you need to install a linux. For simplicity, you can have it installed under virtual machine like vmware or virtualbox.

Under linux, run commands as following steps:

1. Plug in your SD card into your computer
2. Open Terminal, run command "df", you should see your media card device name like "/dev/sdb1" which mounted as "/media/disk"
3. Unmount the SD card by running command:
sudo umount /media/disk
4. Format your SD card by running command:
sudo mkfs.ext2 /dev/sdb1
5. Remount your SD card by running following two commands:
sudo mkdir /media/disk
sudo mount -t ext2 /dev/sdb1 /media/disk

6. Go to the directory where the rootfs.tar.gz was saved, and extract all the files in rootfs.tar.gz into your SD card by running command:
sudo tar zxvf rootfs.tar.gz -C /media/disk
7. Your SD card is ready.

1. First please make sure you are using Asus P535
2. Did you prepare your SD card properly and extract all the files into the card? If no, please do as the steps in the above reply.
3. If yes, please check if the android.sh file exists in the root directory of your SD card?

I have exactly the same error. I have P535 and followed all steps carefully for storage card, and android.sh is also in the root of it. Any idea about why it is happening?

Please paste the last 10 lines of the boot information on your screen so I can do some analysis. Thanks.

I think it is possible. And it will be ideal to run Android on i780 which has a qwerty keyboard.

However, I don't have a chance to do this because I don't have an i780 in hand.
