I've seen some Android phones and a couple tablets that have been hacked to run either Debian, Ubuntu, or SUSE, it seems usually as chroot rather than booting directly so rooting is necessary I suppose. My question is, has anyone been able to run a desktop Linux distro on the Haipad M701/701-R (or any of it's other names/models)? Or for that matter, has anyone looked at booting BSD flavors that have been ported to the ARM architecture? I'm guessing it's more complicated than just putting a "live" image (loopback fs) on an SD card or Flash drive and rebooting, or everyone would be doing it. But is getting another OS to run on these tablets so difficult and hardware specific it's hardly worth the effort, at least so long as the manufacturer seems willing to release firmware updates?
