    I have had a lot of people ask how to do this successfully, and get all of the other features that we need and love to work.
    I know that this will help people and upset some people at the same time, but what I am going to do is make a Guide / how-to thread on XDA, I will be starting fresh with Ubuntu 14.10 and take pictures with my GS3 to help out people from start to finish.
    REMEMBER before you get upset or frustrated, that the T200TA 4Gb/64Gb is still a relatively new machine, and not everything is going to work out of the box. They still don't have the T100 running perfectly.
    I start school back up full-time tomorrow, and I will be working on updating the tutorial as I have time to do so, and with collaboration from other Devs from across the globe so please be patient.

    The link to my post on the XDA-Developers website is as follows:

    I,ve managed to get Linux booting from a USB boot disk made with Universal USB installer. The linux distro is Mint 17.1 this works well apart from the known issues. I have wifi working with an old wifi dongle that I bought very cheaply.

    that's what I had to do at first, im still trying for a fix but everything is "wired" in I2C and the drivers don't work. Has anyone successfully used ndiswrapper on any distro?

    I tried ndiswrapper gui version, but it says hardware not present for both of the .inf files in the windows drivers.

    sudo apt-get install ndisgtk

    Step 1: Attach a bootable USB device to the USB port.
    Step 2: Swipe in from the right and then tap Settings.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Settings.)
    Step 3: Tap or click Change PC Settings.
    Step 4: Tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.
    Step 5: Under Advanced Startup, tap or click Restart now.
    Step 6: On the Choose an option screen, tap or click Use a device.

    Up to here I can follow the steps, everything is the same.
    When I tap on 'Use a device' I get another screen where is displayed my live USB memory stick.
    It says: 'UEFI: KingstonDT 101
    G2 PMAP'

    This is the only option, so I tap on it and computer starts restarting, booting, it starts to read USB memory stick, well light inside flashes for a while, but then ASUS normally loads Windows log in screen :-(0
    I repeated several times I tried both USB ports, 2 and 3, no luck...
    USB stick works on other computers...

    Step 7: On the Troubleshoot screen, tap or click Advanced options.

    I don't get this Troubleshooting screen and advanced options ?!?
    What I'm doing wrong and what should I do next, any ideas from anyone?

    Step 8: On the Advanced options screen, tap or click the name of the USB device. It will restart and boot from the USB device.

    This is great idea! I think I bought these on amazon:

    http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-WN7...g_bs_172504_30

    and they are working with my linux Mint. So if Mint doesn't support wi-fi in Asus t200, you have here work around, perfect and thanks for idea! Now I just need to get somehow that my T200 loads Mint or any linux. Although I like Mint much better than Ubuntu.

    Nope, taking all back. I didn't know about copying bootia32.efi to the boot folder...

    I have Linux Mint 17.1 XFCE on it, cool :-)

    Wireless is not working, I will use wi-fi dongle as suggested before.
    I have microsoft bluetooth mouse that is not working, don't care :-)

    Now I need to figure out, how to install it on SSD without ruining Win 8.1 since I plan to play with upgrade Win 10.
    If dual boot will not work on this machine I will eventually just install permanently Mint.

    Question, can you upgrade kernel while booting Mint from USB stick?

    Has anyone managed to get sound working. I have tried various Linux distros all work well except for sound. Still have to use a wifi dongle but don't find that a problem.

    Anybody been able to boot Arch Linux on the t200? I have Arch Linux on my desktop PC, but I can't get Arch to boot on the t200. The same USB flash drive will boot the (BIOS) PC just fine, but not the (UEFI) t200.

    Hi jimbrechin,

    I've working sound and wifi on T200TA.

    Based on Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) I have made some changes to the kernelsource.

    For Wifi I applied the patch from Gmane Loom. Unfortunately, the patch is made on a later kernel version where some of the code has been restructured. I needed to patch the code by hand. But it worked. The T200TA has the Broadcom BCM43341 chip. You also need the correct firmware, but it seems I didn't save the link. You may find it via Google.

    In order to get some debug information from the module, I have changed the kernel standard configuration with

    Code:
    CONFIG_BRCMDBG=y
    I used

    Code:
    export CONCURRENCY_LEVEL=4
    make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers
    dpkg -i linux-image-3.16.7-mhoe01_3.16.7-mhoe01-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb linux-headers-3.16.7-mhoe01_3.16.7-mhoe01-10.00.Custom_amd64.deb
    to compile and install the kernel from the ubuntu source. I needed to logged in as root for the make.

    Sound is the device 10EC:5640 on i2c bus. It is supposed to be a rt5640. In dmesg I got

    Code:
    [   22.398454] byt-rt5640 byt-rt5640: ASoC: CODEC i2c-10EC5640:00 not registered
    [   22.398545] platform byt-rt5640: Driver byt-rt5640 requests probe deferral
    [   22.616571] byt-rt5640 byt-rt5640: rt5640-aif1 <-> baytrail-pcm-audio mapping ok
    I'm unsure if I changed the firmware for this. The main problem was to find the correct alsa configuration. You may get some information from this page: https://wiki.archlinux.de/title/Alsa.

    I have attached to state files for alsa with which I got at least mono sound from the speakers and with the other one stereo sound from the headphone. You need to load the one you need with

    Code:
    sudo alsactl -f <.state file> restore
    Hope this works for you.

    I would need help with the touchscreen, where some releases are not detected and confusing things happen on the desktop, like jumping cursors, not intended selection boxes, etc. I also want to activate my cameras. The battery indicator would be nice. I read there is a patch available, but I havn't find it. If somebody knows how to get a working powermanagement, that would be also great.
