Just thought i'd share - it would appear that when plugging the Scroll into my laptop running Ubuntu 10.10, no further device drivers were needed - Ubuntu recognised it instantly, and I was able to use ADB commands straight away.

Neither linux or osx need adb drivers

I have Ubuntu for netbooks on my uh um Netbook lol and as I installed it using a live usb it is still on the usb. now if only I could figure a way to get the Scroll to boot from the USB instead of the internal memory?
PS. I had Froyo on the same usb before Ubuntoo and managed to run Android on my Netbook :D (not very usefull though as netbook does not have a touch screen)

Its usually not as simple as booting off of the USB, having come from another ARM processor based PDA to the Scroll tablet, there was a lot of work needed before Ubuntu would run on it. There is a site omegamoon which shows what is possible with Ubuntu on a PDA, I've just got in contact with the guy who did the conversion to see if he's interested in Ubuntu for ARM Tablets.

Here's hoping.

Scroll:- Android 2.1 firmware 1.02 with keyboard.
Done:- Rooted, ReProfiled, DePhoned, Chinese support, Youtube, Market, Printing
To Do:- WIFI Tethering (via phone), 3G Dongle (via usb)

would love to find out if anyone got this working?
on a completely unrelated note i got ubuntu to work on o2's ill fated joggler. works very well considering. it boots off usb stick and supports usb keyboard and suchlike. the images are built for atom CPU, but i would assume the same rule of thumb applies.
