I found these guides which explain how we can install and boot debain while working from android. This will serve as a very good test bed for generic arm devices. I have a chinese make Ramos W10. Going to try and install debian today and test bodhi packages that Jeff made.

Wow. Really tempted to give this a go, but I know I'll brick my phone and it's the only one I've got. From what I read this 'bug' that allows root swill soon be 'fixed' :(

The method listed here -> http://lanrat.com/android/debian seems newer and I am going to test this tonight. Hoping this works.

My tablet is missing a kernel module needed for the loop back device to be create(loop.ko). So going to compile it now for the tablet.

Hi Jose and others...

If any of you have had success installing Bodhi on generic Chinese-made Android tablets, could you please post a how-to so others like me can try it too..? I own a ZT-180 v2 and would like to see how I can install Bodhi on this device.

Thanks
