Want to Run Linux In Your Transformer? There May Be Hope Soon…
By now, there are a bunch of devices in our beloved site that have gained the ability to run Linux distros thanks to our devs. The latest one to be going down that path is the Asus Transformer. XDA member seshmaru posted a guide that explains how to flash Ubuntu onto Tegra 2 based devices. This is not just running it from an SD card but actually flashing this onto the nvflash of the device, so for those of you who were still wondering what use was the security key, this is one such reason. Keep in mind that this is not complete yet as the tools required to flash anything to nvflash are currently under development. However, if you wanted to have a more robust OS than Android, this is certainly something to keep your eye on. The guide being linked to has been proven to be effective for other devices. Lastly, this guide will run you on installing Karmic Koala, but there are certainly ways to get something a bit newer than this build.
Please leave some feedback or suggestions if you have something to add to the guide.

Here is a guide to flashing ubuntu through nvflash onto a tegra 2 device:
