Installation:
Download the Loader, Parameter file, Boot image, Kernel of your choice (720 or 1080) and System image of either Ubuntu, Lubuntu or Xubuntu.
Unzip the System image. Use RKAndroidTool v1.37 and first check-box the files and set the correct paths. Then "EraseIDB" followed by "Run" to flash your device.
Now boot your device and enjoy.

Changes:
Removal of CPU intensive video stutter fix (by popular request)
Sound workaround (although see viewtopic.php?f=13&t=5123#p16205 for the solution from planlos)
Simplified install (thanks to mmm123 for suggestion)
Both 720 and 1080 kernels (by popular request)
Console logging enabled from boot
Additonal root file systems of Lubuntu and Xubuntu (for Picuntu fans)

Q&A:
The MK802IV kernels work only with the later AP6210 wifi chipset
Both kernels should work on similar hardware with compatible chipsets
For Mk908 please refer to http://www.omegamoon.com/blog/index.php ... 811-184636
The password for linuxium is 'p'
Sudo is configured and you can set/change the root password
There is no hardware video acceleration so XBMC is not recommended
The kernel source is available at https://github.com/linuxium/3188-SRC-AP6210
Lubuntu and Xubuntu are release 13.04 and Ubuntu is 12.04.3 (LTS)
Please feel free to comment, make suggestions or push source changes

RKAndroidToolv1.37 can be downloaded from here - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B99O3A0 ... zVvZERfWW8

Did you unzip the System image first before flashing?

Thank you very much for your work.
Try to boot with Ubuntu - ..nix work ok, but after 2-3 reboots parent Android system stop working with many messages ... system apps stops one by one. Its not a problem at all, I plan to install linux in nand (there is enough Android devices in home).
And my question about system not listed for now - about mint.
Do you have plans about mint adapting for MK802iv?
If no - can you give some recommendations about system preparing? At least for SD-card booting.

Hey,

thanks for you work.

One question: does the T428 Kernel have wifi support for the AP6330?

Cheers
David

In my G+ posting comments https://plus.google.com/109451178006683 ... 65xvHJGWm6 I've posted a test 8188 kernel which has been confirmed to work - you just need to insmod the 8188 module as per the comments - I didn't originally include this as my device is no longer working and I couldn't test.

Yes - the T428 kernel is specific for the AP6330 chip - wifi exactly.
