Is there any chance nowadays of getting Fedora ARM running on cheap
Allwinner 7" Android tablets that ship with Android 5.1 ?
I am thinking of the likes of
7" Android Tablet
Android 5.1.1 operating system
Quad-core processor up to 1.2Ghz
8GB Internal Flash Memory
Further digging reveals:
CPU Allwinner A23
Would booting Linux be a pain like it was discussed here about three years
ago, or are there more mature solutions wrt replacing unlocking/replacing
bootloader or booting from external usb flash drive?
Most of the AllWinner android tablets are based on a handful of
devices. Some have been known to work to some degree. I'm not sure how
to tell which is which but if you can find that out it's possible it
might worth with one of the u-boots we ship at which point it should
boot OK off the MMC card.
If you get it booted though you might not have a working touchscreen
and the graphics isn't accelerated.
I can't help any more than that as I've not investigated those tablets at all.
