That no sound issue has bugged me for a long time, cheers for the fix; with Android this device works 10x better than it did with Windows 8.11 and 10.



Slight Issues though:

- I'm only seeing 1.94GB storage of 32GB using FAT32 but its very stable (Linx10)

*I changed the last bit of the installation procedure for the data.img from 2048 to 25000mb (25GB) and it still only see the internal storage as 2GB.

*Formatting the drive as EXT4 via the installation results in the system not booting past the Android logo.

*Formatting the drive as NTFS and setting the data.img size to 25000 (25GB) results in the operating system booting, but results in the google app system crashing at the point where you first try to enter your WIFI information as a result the WIFI wont connect properly.

To bypass that I needed to log in as offline mode then connect WIFI then login with my google credentials. I update the standard google apps in the PlayStore but they still remained unstable unlike when the system was run in FAT32 mode.

Also the system proceeded to reboot when left idle in NTFS mode which it never did in FAT32 mode, plus even though the data.img file size was set by me manually in NTFS the device would still only see 4096GB of internal storage and not the 25GB which i actually set.

If we can get EXT4 to boot i imagine that will likely be the most stable and allow the full usage of the internal HDD.


Other Issues:

- Cam LED stays on, never use the cams anyway.

- Screen orientation can be resolved with an add free app

- Following two messages display during boot up:

* EFI request map not found on boot up.
* EST header not fount in map

Great guide thanks very much, i deleted all partitions then created a windows basic data patition 1gb, and a linux partition ext4 29gb, I have 28.45 gb on my android settings storage. I think the grub is installed on the windows partion 1, and the android is installed on ext4 partition 2. You are my hero.

I just need to flip the screen auto rotation 180. Or disable the accelerometer . I've tried all the apps. Clash royale turns auto rotation back on. Or doesn't run in landscape. Any help would be great.
