Re: Debian on Ainol Novo 7 Basic

I'm not sure wether it's possible to use adb in this case, while adb connects to Android System, not the underneath layer. What I'm trying to find is the way to control the booted media. Well, we all are, right? On a non-android tablet it's quite easy since you have some kind of a normal BIOS. For example Toshiba Protege:  http://risujin.org/debian/#links I'm now looking for a way to flash anything like BIOS on a tablet to make it more like a normal machine, then it wouldn't be a problem to install anything via. LAN. The problem is to find any solution of this kind for this exact architecture. If no luck we would need to leave at least one file from the Android install which is containing the list of the hardware to boot properly and this all is going to take much more time in the case.

Actually, I have recovered the system. The next step would be to got a
working adb connection via USB, which, for some reason, I failed to

My goal is to replace the stock Android with a full working debian
system (which exclude the emulation of a Linux system, as in [1]),
similarly to the work done on the Toshiba AC100 smartbook ([2] and [3])
