Hi,

I've got a Point Of View mobii Businessline PROtab2 XXL with Allwinner A10 SoC (sun4i_crane).
http://www.pointofvi...&product_id=308
I'm quite impressed with the performance especially for €150. Android 2.3 is alright but ultimately I want to run Linux.
I'v looked around for Ubuntu On Android, at wiki.debian.org (still have to look a Emdebian) and linux-sunxi.org
The only semi-success I had was with this tutorial http://rhombus-tech....0/a10_mmc_boot/

I hope some can help me here and I'd be happy to help others

:) Hello äxl,

Your post was split from the introduction board and moved to the All other A10 tablets forum.

Good luck with your PROtab2, and welcome to slatedroid.

Thanks, mrsburnout.

Continuing from here: http://www.slatedroi...post__p__393429
Since I've updated to Android 4 through Win 7 and LiveSuite my partition table is different:

The 0 disk name = bootloader, class name = DISK, disk size = 32768
The 1 disk name = env, class name = DISK, disk size = 4096
The 2 disk name = boot, class name = DISK, disk size = 65536
The 3 disk name = system, class name = DISK, disk size = 614400
The 4 disk name = data, class name = DISK, disk size = 2457600
The 5 disk name = misc, class name = DISK, disk size = 2048
The 6 disk name = recovery, class name = DISK, disk size = 65536
The 7 disk name = cache, class name = DISK, disk size = 262144
The 8 disk name = UDISK, class name = DISK, disk size = 4276224
The 8 disk size = 4276224
part total count = 9

I also found a way to boot into fastboot (the mode). Since 5 disk is my misc partition (0 disk=nanda ...) I use nandf:
Not confirming your misc partition might brick your device!
echo -n boot-fastboot | busybox dd of=/dev/block/nandf count=1 conv=sync; sync; reboot
Then I can use fastboot (the tool). I've read that LiveSuite is maybe just a frontend to that and I might not need Win anymore.

Linux-wise the rhombus-tech site seems to be the best way. The links show already some success with set top boxes. Now I "only" have to let it use the internal display and not the HDMI output ...
