    Is there any possible way Ubuntu can be flashed on the elite. I heard you can flash it on the nexus 4

    If you're talking about Ubuntu touch, then the elite should be able to run it since we meet the "Entry level" requirements.

    iirc ubuntu touch requires cm10.1 (although i may be mistaken) in order to be built. I personally would jump at the chance at attempting it if I had access to all the required resources.

    Well since AOKP is 4.2.2 and Ubuntu touch does have a minimum of 4.2, I could attempt to port it to the Elite. No promises since the site says that ubuntu needs CM10.1 or AOSP 4.2 run.

    Alright so there's two zips involved, I know one of them is the OS itself, not sure about the other one.

    OS = trusty-preinstalled-touch-armel+mako.zip
    Other thing = trusty-preinstalled-touch-armhf.zip

    It could be the other way around though, I'll know once I have both of them downloaded.

    Edit: Ok yeah. I have no idea what the hell is going on.
    Uh... yeah.
    I got nothing.

    The first one is a touch release for 'mako' which is the nexus 4.
    The second one is a touch release for armhf devices such as the nexus 7.

    I'm about to install ubuntu 14.04 on a second partition. It has updated sdk tools to help with building/porting, and I plan on making a couple apps for touch as well.

    Actually building it doesn't seem to be that hard.

    Multithreaded cleanup completed. May I remind folks to use the report button ([​IMG]) if there is any issue in a thread that need attention instead of carrying on an argument. Life is easier for all involved.

    Thank you.:)
