    I wish I were a developer and could work on the release - but I have a job in finance that I have not been doing justice to, all because of the abominable Adam. Therefore, I wish I had a tablet that did what it was supposed to do and stop distracting me.

    And no, the iPad doesn't do what I want it to do. At least, not my way.

    Is it possible to port Android apps to Ubuntu and give Ubuntu or Kubuntu Tablet Edition as default OS of Adam?.

    dune posted a list of bugs that pretty much wiped out the idea of using this on the Adam but that reply was wiped out in a forum hiccup. Can you post that again dune?
    In fire and EMS? Check the Play Store for my current apps Code Log and Pumper calc.

    LOL, BW! Don't be so negative. Let's read it again (it's linked as a PDF on the thread).
    2.0 Known Issues
    The following list describes known issues with this release:
     The power button must be used to wake from the Suspend (LP1) power state.
    This is because Suspend shuts off USB power, so Resume fails to wake up the
    target board from the USB keyboard/mouse and crashes the system. The
    workaround is to wake up the system using the power button.
     CRT output support is not present in the kernel for Harmony. Only LVDS and
    HDMI are available.
     HDMI on Harmony will not display until you log in over a serial or network
    connection and start X.
     Wi-Fi is not present on Harmony.
     There is no NAND or NFS boot functionality in this release.
     Deep Sleep (LP0) does not work.
    Firstly, it says Wi-Fi is not present on Harmony. I think they're talking about the board and not the release. Therefore, testing might not be possible for the Tegra 250 / Tango Dev Kits. Compare it with the Ventana Dev Kit.

    Secondly, there seems to be lots of conflicting information, for example, about whether 'Harmony' means Tegra 250 or Tegra 200. Read this:

    Note: This alpha release of Tegra Linux Driver Package (L4T.ER1 ) is a
    release for Tegra 250 “Harmony” only. The information in these release
    notes is preliminary.
    vs.

    3.2 Boot Options
    It is currently possible to boot Tegra Linux Driver Package Tegra 200 Series developer
    board ("Harmony") with a root file system from:
     USB disk
     eMMC
     NAND
    Lastly, they are saying that u-boot is available on ChromeOS and Trim-Slice (?) while the bootloader source code is not yet available.

    Post-lastly, they have also said the Alpha 2, with support for Ventana, should be available in 'a few weeks'.

    I safely think the current release can be tested till then.

    I think the priorities are a bit mixed up here.

    That's good news. Thanks for the link Dune.

    As for running Android apps on Ubuntu, there was a group working on an abstrsction layer, but there hasn't beenany noise from them in over a year. You can dual boot Android and ubuntu, giving you access to Android apps . . .
