Android on Linx 10 - Need Help

by linxxxer » April 9th, 2015, 9:34 pm

Hi there I tried to install the Android 4.2.2 builds by Intel for x64 on my Linx 10 tablet (source: You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register) but for some reason I cant boot into the USB. I disabled Fast boot in windows, quick boot in the bios and disabled intel speedstep. Can somebody please help me, I just want to try the Live USB before considering installing it. Any help greatly appreciated

Hello,

Be aware that these tablets use 32bit UEFI booting..
I'm not familar with the current Android builds.. Too many projects on the go at the minute.

They are on my "to look at" list.

See post 6 in viewtopic.php?f=15&t=542

A 64bit OS on the tablet is certainly "doable". The initial UEFI "handover" to the required OS is the minor problem.

Your next problem will be specific kernel/driver support for the hardware on the tablet.
The processor is actually a SOC (system on chip) and requires platform support.

The latest Linux kernels (currently 4.0.0 RC7) have some Baytrail-t support.
Audio, bluetooth, camera & wifi are WIP. I understand the kernel developers are waiting on Intel to supply info/help etc.

Others are working on this independently. I've managed to get unstable wifi so far...

I say "go for it"...

Backup your tablet first... I'll have a stable linux solution for this finished very soon.

Good luck.

Didn't know they used 32 bit UEFI, just assumed it was 64 bit since our processor is x64. Will try Android-x86 then.

At the moment I just want to try it to see what's working. I don't really care about the camera or Bluetooth but WiFi and audio are a must for me.

Best of luck with your android build

Have you looked into AMIDuOS ? Might be worth having a play with that?

I believe if you go to You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register and scroll down to the Android-x86-4.4 section there is a UEFI image that when imaged to a USB I managed to boot up on my Linx 10, although touch screen and WiFi didn't work I did read a guide earlier on a method to install drivers manually but it must be installed to the internal drive to work
This might be helpful to those interested

Hello All,

I've seen some dual boot tablets (windows and Android with the same and similar SOC) so its possible..
If you search Ebay (worldwide search), you'll see them..

Actually http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/32GB-7-VIDO-W ... 2c9c5d6c0f for a UK seller.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/32GB-8-9-ONDA ... 463c413254

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-in-1-PC-tab ... 4d33e90441

I'll ask around, If I can borrow something similar or get a image then it might be some help for you. You might need to virtualise the image (virtualbox would be my starting place) possibly also loopback the image as well. You could then see exactly what drivers are used and how it is configured for booting.

No promises... but I will try.

Hello All.

Right then.. I've decided.. I'm going to have a look at putting Android on the Linx.

Is there any particular version of special interest to anyone??

I'll have a spare Linx 10 available for this when I've finished changing the digitizer..

I'll post here if I manage to get anywhere with it.

Wish me luck!
