Why don't you mention the exact steps you have taken more clearly.

A device is only an 'Android Device' because it runs the Android OS. Beyond that, it is simply a device. The method of loading and booting to any other OS depends entirely on the device itself. This is exactly the same state of affairs that existed with microcomputers before IBM came along and started building PCs, which quickly became an industry standard architecture. I'm not really a tablet geek, but I doubt very much whether there is any kind of standardization in tablet/handheld/mobile devices that allows you to install anything new by following generic instructions. About the only thing that seems to be a common convention is that mobile devices tend to use some form of ARM architecture. Unfortunately, even that describes a very broad spectrum of CPUs and other architecture. Most ARM based devices use some form of on-chip flash memory from which to boot. Modifying that memory may be anywhere from impossible to merely difficult. It is very much a possibility that getting the modification wrong will brick the device. There are probably a host of components that have custom drivers or require special configuration. Heck, even getting Linux to run on something pretty standard like a laptop can be difficult.

Hi, please do not hijack other people thread, it would be better and to get the proper attention if you start a thread for your specific problem.

I managed to root the device with z4root and then install linuxonandroid. I have since run into other errors which I have posted as a separate thread. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...et-4175453975/

Did you check your device if having root permission. Try to download root checker on google play and check if you have permission as root.

Now when I run z4root, it informs me that the device is already rooted and gives me options to unroot or re-root. Also on some occassions, there was a message box asking me whether to permit some program asking for superuser priviledges. The tablet appears to be rooted.

Did you try to check it using root checker?
If root checker tells you have root permission you can go on the next step.

Hello theNbomr thanks for sharing your views. I completely agree with you. Before making any modification we need to check compatibility of device
