Is this above solution provided on the 2nd post says ‘Attention: for VIM Pro model only!’ - Is this going to work with VIM2 Max model? Please Confirm…
Also like to ask another question Actually…
VIM2 Max comes with Andriod preloaded at it’s Internal Memory…Right… - Can I prepare a Micro SD Card with Ubuntu Mate Image provided by the firmware page of this site and boot into that Ubuntu distro without disturbing the preloaded Andriod?
If Answer is Yes,
I think the procedure is ‘power on and pressing the Function button, will boot from the SD card’ <—Right ?
Creating a Bootable SD Card for VIM 2 can I use Win 32 Disk Imager or Etcher Tools - Just what we do in Raspberry Pi ?
If anyone can show some lights regarding this matter…Please let me know. Thanks.
Hello, With Android installed as supplied, Linux variants can also be boot and run from SD card or USB flash drive. Does not alter installed Android. Will boot to Android if USB flash drive or SD card is not connected. Insert SD card or USB flash drive to boot to Linux. @balbes150 does much in this area. For instance, see here. But several Linux varieties are available.
I use your new release (171028): first boot in android, power off menu and boot ubuntu mate.
After reboot or power off always boot in ubuntu, how I can change it? I tried with function button but anything changed.
Thanks a lot
I own a vim2 MAX.
Just noticed that LibreElec (on SD card) - version 184.108.40.206 (latest as of this day) does not boot when EMMC’s last boot was Ubuntu.
Works when EMMC is set to boot under android.
Ubuntu is still sluggish (lack of video driver) but still much more usefull than Android in my opinion.
BTW, remote still not working with LibreElec (remote.conf for VIM2 placed in /.config).
Anyway, special thanks to kszaq for his remarkable work!
Thks to you all and keep up with the good work
