How to Install Linux Ubuntu on nexus 7
I have bought a Google Android Tablet and was wondering if I could install one of the Linux distros onto it. It sounds far more plausible. Is there any way to install Ubuntu, Debian, Linux Mint or any other distro on my nexus 7?
You can run chrooted Linux (a virtual OS) under Android OS and the Android OS will work fully and normally. First of all, you should have your tablet "rooted" with root access right.
There is "Complete Linux Installer" available in the Google Play store. The app let you to install its own busybox to launch Ubuntu, Backtrack or Debian on the nexus 7. It starts great and is responsive considering and runs smoothly. Only problem is the VNC server won't start because of the invalid resolution.
