Are there any prebuilt images of Nemo for Nexus 7? Is it even functional there? Mer wiki says something should work:

https://wiki.merproject.org/wiki/Com...s7#Nemo_Mobile

Plasma Active is continuously riddled with serious bugs on ARM up to making it unusable on Nexus 7. So I thought to give Nemo a try there, especially if it supports rotation, or even uses Wayland (PA isn't going to use Wayland until next year).

Instructions for installation would be useful too. So far there are only instructions for Plasma Active, but I guess process for Nemo should be similar enough.

Forgot the actual command for building the image (from the base Mer SDK):

Code:
sudo mic create fs nemo-armv7hl-nexus7-rnd-20130805.ks -o . --tokenmap=MER_RELEASE:latest,NEMO_RELEASE:latest,FLAVOUR:devel --arch armv7hl --pkgmgr=zypp
Last time I tired, it was booting, but the UI didn't start for some reason.

I didn't test it. I have a Nexus 7 with half broken Plasma Active. So Nemo can be better (may be). I care the most about a stable e-book reader. PA one crashes all the time.

According to Stskeeps, it's still work in progress, and they'll publish instructions when they'll be more ready. Then Nemo will be installable basically on any device where Cyanogenmod is. That's great news.
