    It would be interesting to try it or some hacked version like: http://forum.xda-developers.com/remix/remix-os/remix-os-pc-hacked-edition-ota-v2-0-201-t3345968 Also, I heard this other project with a more open license and specialized in Intel Atom: http://www.phoenixos.com/download_x86 The problem is that you need Windows to install it and I removed my Windows partition.

    Why do you need Windows to install it?  It’s just an ISO.  Isn’t it just a matter of writing it correctly to a bootable USB drive (probably FAT32 formated) using something like Unetbootin on Linux?  (it’s like the Rufus tool on Windows).

    Does your tablet BIOS support booting from a USB drive?  If so, I think you can run RemixOS from that, no?

    Remix OS does run on chuwi hi10,

    Problem is, the screen cant be forced to landscape

    There are no wifi, touchscree, and orientation sensort detected so there is a LOT of work to be done. I SADLY have no Linux experiences and am therefore not able to do any of the fixing, anyone else who can help here?

    Thanks from Amsterdam

    “Apparently there is a bug in recent kernels that affects Bay Trail devices.
    Try to set kernel parameters intel_idle.max_cstate=1 and tsc=reliable at the end of kernel line in grub.cfg.
    That did the trick on my Asus Transformer Book T200TA.”

    Hello all you tireless Linux hackers.  The 16.04 LTS (long term support) version of Ubuntu has now hit the wires along with tasty light-weight flavors… Lubuntu, Xubuntu, etc.   Time for a new round of  testing on Atom tablets?  I’m thinking they still have a ways to go on the driver/device support, or am I wrong?

    My tablet is a BQ 2 tesla Windows 10
    
    Baytrail z3735F
    2Gb Ram
    32 Gb NAND
    
    Wi - Fi / BT 8723¿bs ? It works but not always
    
    Sound r5640 (does not work , but alsamixer and recognizes the sound card)
    
    BMA 250 3-axis accelerometer
    It works , but the rotation is not integrated
    
    5 megapixel camera (does not work , because it works by a data bus until 6 months ago was undocumented)
    
    APX 288 ( battery indicator and power manager , a source of problems because not supported in the kernel.
    
    I am currently compiling the kernel 4.5.1 with patch:

    Ubuntu has a repository called chestersmill , this repository contains the following files:

    chestersmill-settings_4_all.deb
    oem-audio-i915-baytrail-dkms_0.20150605_all.deb
    rtl8723bs-dkms_150410chestersmill1_all.deb
    rtl8723bs-Bluetooth-misc_150511chestersmill1_amd64.deb
    oem-audio-i915-baytrail-dkms_0.20150605_all.deb

    This works only at 14.04 , on 16 does not work for the kernel , we must recompile.
    The install script would look like

    #!/bin/sh

    cat <<+ > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/chestersmill.list
    deb http://oem.archive.canonical.com/updates/ trusty-chestersmill public
    deb-src http://oem.archive.canonical.com/updates/ trusty-chestersmill public
    +
    apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys F9FDA6BED73CDC22
    apt-get -y update
    apt-get -y install chestersmill-settings

    Linuxium has a patched Ubuntu 16.04 version for Intel Atom’s working supposedly on the Intel Compute Stick with working HDMI audio and Wifi.

    note sure if this is helpful at all, if it works any better on tablets?, but FYI anyway…

    http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com.br/2016/04/intel-atom-hdmi-audio-and-wifi-on.html

    Linuxium… “I’m currently testing on the Intel Compute Sticks (Baytrail Z3735F & Cherrytrail x5-Z8300). Feedback and/or “level of interest” will determine whether it is worthwhile investing any further effort into this.”

    Remix…meh. Ubuntu 14.04…meh. xjesus 16.04 is the bomb! I did some more testing with the latest b version on a gpart usb live drive and it now shuts down. I selected save session but it hung on the reboot, but only at the last point, I did have a desktop. I did not test further as I figure the glory item is yet to come! Great work and thanks to all who are making this a soon to be daily driver!

    Internal Bluetooth works already in XJUbunTAB XJX64bits-16.04.21T

    You only need to type in a terminal:

    sudo ~/Patches/rtl8723bs_bt/rtk_hciattach -n -s 115200 ttyS4 rtk_h5

    Then run Bluetooth Manager (icon in Desktop)

    Audio over HDMI coming soon…

    Thanks to linuxium

    I got rid of Windows some time ago and I was thinking of installing Windows just to do a BIOS Update on my X98Plus, but I found this way to do it directly from a pendrive

    I haven’t tried this yet, but if it is indeed working as it should, might be relevant for multiple testing with significantly reduces workload:

    My apologies if I got it wrong (I am just a hobbyist after all, quite an admirer of you your work though :).
