Hello Guys we need your help in porting android on samsung star S5230...You think star is not compatible to run android?? If you think so then you are wrong... Star has passed the minimum requirements of a hardware to run Android and we have seen an android mobile with 208 Mhz ARM9 processor, star has got the same processor too..
Here is the detailed description of Samsung star's hardware:
S3 (System LSI) : Microcontroller
C (Small Classification) : MASK ROM
2 (Core) : 32-bit ARM9
410 : ARM 9 Series (920T)
Features : MMU, NAND Flash Boot Loader, ROM/SRAM/SDRAM Control, STN/TFT LCD Control, Touch Panel Control, MMC/SD Card, USB, 10bit ADC
Speed : 200MHz,266MHz
16/32-bit RISC microprocessor is designed to provide a cost-effective, low-power, small die size and high-performance microcontroller solution for hand held devices and general mobile applications. To reduce total system cost, the S3C2410 also provides the following features: separate 16KB Instruction and 16KB Data Cache, MMU to handle virtual memory management, LCD controller (STN & TFT), NAND Flash Boot loader, System Manager (chip select logic, SDRAM controller), 3-ch UART with handshake, 4-ch DMA, 4-ch Timers with PWM, I/O Ports, RTC, 8- ch 10-bit ADC and touch screen interface, IIC-BUS interface, IIS-BUS interface, USB Host, USB Device, SD Host & Multimedia Card Interface, 2-ch SPI and PLL for clock generation. The S3C2410 is developed using an ARM920T core, 0.18um CMOS standard cells and a memory complier. Its low-power, simple, elegant and fully static design is particularly suitable for cost and power sensitive applications. Also, the S3C2410 adopts a new bus architecture, AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture) An outstanding feature of the S3C2410 is its CPU core, a 16/32-bit ARM920T RISC processor designed by Advanced RISC Machines, Ltd. By providing a complete set of common system peripherals, the S3C2410 minimizes overall system costs and eliminates the need to configure additional components.
The Star has a resistive touch screen with a resolution of 240X400.
It has no directional pad. It has two volume buttons on the left side, along with a slot for the phones USB 2.0 cable. It has a lock button and a camera button on the right side. It has 3 buttons on the 'face' of the phone. A call button, an end call button and a back button.
Okay now the request to developers, please help us in developing StarDroid. (the bootloader, android build, kernel). we have got the original bootloader with us.
