    It's probably not been ported yet. I'm sorry to say, Ubuntu might never get ported to that device. It all depends on Cyanogenmod being ported, and then somebody else porting Ubuntu as well. If the tablet is not a popular one with Android and Ubuntu developers, it'll probably never work.

    Buyer beware; you really should have bought a Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 as these are the official development platform for Ubuntu Tablet.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
