Port Android to mobile device

Postby alcstudio » Wed Mar 26, 2008 12:18 pm

Hello. I wonder if its possible to port android to a mobile device (real phone).

if it is, how dose it work. Is it just to connect the phone to the computer and then use some program to transfer all the files to the phone.

Have not get the hang of how it works.

I have built a own mobile phone. and now i need a runnable OS on it..

No it is not :)

There is not yet a single common phone available. If it was so easy, you would have heard of.
Porting is much more than just transferring one file to your phone. You have to set up a complete OS (Linux with Android on the top).

But i.e. a development board: http://www.anddev.org/viewtopic.php?t=981

Theoretically yes! That should not be the problem.
But you have to recompile your kernel with android specific configuration (it's hard to find that file)! And in reality you'll have the problem to get drivers working with all of your Mobilecomponents.
If you don't have a hardware keyboard for example, android is at this stage of developement useless!
Problems with the board? Just send me an Private Message or an Email: madmax at anddev.org

Do you think it will be possible to port android in a near future? Hmm its possible to port it but tricky, the question is do you think it will come out some guide or something about porting.

New member today asks "Where can I find info on using Xmarks to sync Android phone bookmarks with a desktop computer bookmarks? Desktop is using Firefox in the United States." My apology on asking in this part of forum but there is no "Xmarks related forum.
