    Lightbulb lubuntu on android device

    Hello, is it possible to set linux (lubuntu or ubuntu) on android mini pc - MK809 III Quad Core RK3188 Cortex A9 Android 4.2 Mini PC Bluetooth TV Stick 8GB ?
    How about WIFI (AP6210), graphic acceleration (Mali 400), USB OTG, USB LAN drivers?

    Hi.

    I don't think so at least at this moment. I belive Canonical plans to launch Ubuntu Phone in 2014 and now there is only a previous versiron for partners and developer which is only compatible with some Google devices: Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4.


    Read this:

    And its staff member's comment here who told when they think Ubuntu Phone might be available:

    @LubLearner, this device is a stick computer, not a phone.

    And yes! It is possible, but it won't be simple, and it won't run well (yet).

    Look into Picuntu for the G8 Eco App.

    EDIT: Found a guide for you: http://sharpeespace.blogspot.com/201...mk803-iii.html
    I can't vouch for this though, so YMMV, and be careful. Any time you flash something you risk permanent damage.

    What an amazing little gadget! And thanks, jewisharific, for the link to the site. I was considering a RasPi, but now(?)...
