    After months of doing research, I was told that the atom z2760 simply was not designed to have android because it is not an ARM processor, etc, etc.
    But!
    The new Galaxy tab 3 10.1 has an atom z2560, which is not ARM. And thats an android tablet...by Samsung...tell me if I am missing something here. but, shouldn't I be able to port the ROM from the galaxy tab 3 to my ATIV ? since they have very similar processors, and possibly identical hardware?

    I dont know the exact answer (anymore) but I read something about the CPU beeing locked to one OS (for whatever silly reason)...
    I read in a few diffrent forums that the 500t is not dualbootable.
    for those interested: the 700t is, did it with my XE700t1C-A03

    The biggest issue you are going to run into is Secure Boot and the Certificates that are built into the Firmware on any of the modern Windows 8 Tablets.
