Porting Android on Samsung Star( S5230)..!!

Postby yashuu » Mon Jun 06, 2011 10:31 am

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. :)
