    It looks like if someone ask the same about stock firmware and porting android 4.x. I hope that sometimes soon we'll test it on our tablets

    As far as I see, it is perfectly possible to port ubuntu touch to the p10an01... What still remains to be seen is the number of apps available to the user....

    24 devices have Ubuntu Touch ported and works (at least partially) now https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices#Work_in_progress

    Currently trying, as stated in CM10.1 thread, that all the dev required I believe is the development of CM10.1, Ubuntu Touch is untarred to /data/Ubuntu and chroot is initialised at the end of init.rc in the ramdisk, I'll let you know in an hour or so how it goes. (Was trying to be awkward as usual and do stuff with cygwin, going to linux to do it properly.)

    Personally been using these instructions as a guide ... [ADVANCED USERS ONLY][PREVIEW] Evervolv Ubuntu Touch - 1 [2013.02.25] - xda-developers

    And have uploaded a modified boot.img and missing bin files here ... follow the guide above to rsync the armhf image to the ext4 partition copy those bin files into /system and flash the boot.img and see if it boots.

    Edit. Just an update (am trying to have this running while still having the android rom mostly unaltered, don't know if that's wize), have some different errors coming up in logcat think it might be trying to chroot but fails, and then android starts as normal, haven't been able to get a new kernel to compile with the needed configs added:
    CONFIG_SYSVIPC=y
    CONFIG_NAMESPACES=y
    CONFIG_UTS_NS=y
    CONFIG_IPC_NS=y
    CONFIG_USER_NS=y
    CONFIG_PID_NS=y
    CONFIG_NET_NS=y
    CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y
    CONFIG_DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES=y
    CONFIG_FSNOTIFY=y
    CONFIG_DNOTIFY=y
    CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER=y
    CONFIG_FANOTIFY=y
    CONFIG_FANOTIFY_ACCESS_PERMISSIONS=y
    CONFIG_FSNOTIFY=y
    CONFIG_SWAP=y
    # CONFIG_ANDROID_PARANOID_NETWORK is not set

    I'll try again later, unless someone with a working dev environment can knock one up.

    boot img here http://ubuntuone.com/3vRQJrVCX6tYZReDvGycck should be fine once the kernel has been changed. And working of the logcat I think I need to at least remove dalvik from the android side.

    FYI. dmesg error that repeats for a while is:
    <7>[ 25.425883] yaffs: yaffs tragedy:attempt to put data chunk into a non-file
    <7>[ 25.432866] yaffs: bug /home/menno/cm10.1/kernel/nvidia/shuttle/fs/yaffs2/yaffs_guts.c 1092
    <4>[ 25.441385] [<c0013290>] (unwind_backtrace+0x0/0xe0) from [<c018ceb8>] (yaffs_put_chunk_in_file+0x64/0x1ac)

    Just an update to the above.
    Have a slimmed down CM10.1 alpha 12 - http://ubuntuone.com/6JQM8i0pl3c2QBqWE9UsaA , just removed some stuff from scannos (so all props to him and ejtagle) and added a few things. It still needs the modified kernel, and boots to a lit-up black screen, running ubuntu_chroot shell does seem to drop you into the ubuntu shell so might be all we can do until a kernel is made.
    Installation-wise, following the installation of the armhf zip following the instructions above (might be able to modify the updater script but going to bother for the moment), then wiping boot and system (in mounts/storage just to make sure) then install the UT.zip from the ubuntuone zip above.

    (Have removed the boot-animation so don't expect to see one)
