Put any linux distro on nexus7?


Is this what I think it is? I don't have time to look into it more right now but though some would like to see what they are doing with the nexus 7.

Hope the link works.

Yes, they develop a bootloader that can load Linux on that device. Nonetheless you will not be able to use any Linux distro, the distro needs to have a port to the ARM architecture.
