As some of users requested, I'll be releasing early, preview Obuntu images for those who are interested in following my work, as well as those, who would like to contribute in terms of testing and development.
Official project page will be launched within few days, so at the moment please use following topic for everything related to Obuntu.
Also please keep in mind that this project is in very early stage, thus I won't focus on easy installers, FAQ, etc.
It is targeted for advanced users only.
- Download kernel installer
- Copy compressed rootfs and kernel installer on SD card
- Flash Obuntu kernel using installer
- Start bootloader using update procedure (i.e. reboot holding Back button)
- Select "Update Obuntu" from menu
Updater will rarrange internal memory and install Obuntu on newly created partition.
Please be aware that user space partition will be formatted
Whole process should take between 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on your SD card speed.
After installation is complete (ereader will reboot), you can safely remove SD card and boot into Obuntu.
