linux on my tablet

Postby buteman » Sat Sep 13, 2014 10:59 pm

I have just received October lxf and started to read the linuxonandroid article.
I do have a Samsung s2 phone but wonder if I can root my tablet and have Linux on it?
It's an Ampe A10-QM with android 4.12 kernel 3.4.0+.
Does anyone know if this is possible please?

That phone isn't officially supported on Ubuntu (for instance) but have a look at the ports for Ubuntu for Devices - https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices.

Sorry, misread your post.

Okay, thanks, I will have a look at the link.
I have found out that srsroot supports it so I should at least be able to get that far. The only problem I see so far is that it's a windows executable and I don't know if it will work via wine.

Has anyone run srsroot under wine on linux to root a tablet or phone?
