    Is it possible to install Ubuntu Desktop OS on wonder media wm8650? Or install latest android on wonder media wm8650?

    And how do you go about doing that?

    while that would probably be a question better posed on the ubuntu forums, I will say that since Android itself is a linux based OS, that It should hypothetically be possible to install a different distro seeing as windows CE is often found on this same hardware. I would imagine if you could make an Ubuntu based ROM then you should be able to do it.

    Thanks VonSpyder. So I created a bootable sd card with the latest Ubuntu and latest Android. When I restart the tablet it goes straight to the default Android OS . Any idea on how to force it to boot from my sdcard. I used Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3 | USB Pen Drive Linux to create the a bootable sd card. I seem to be missing something.
