wooo, I hope that an angstrom dev will take a look and add a package to the feed with the kernel module, and possibly a recipe for installing android too!

I compiled a minimal boot image, maybe some of you want to give it a try. Just extract the files on a SD and do the usual flashing. The updater.sh is from my Debian-experiment, but it works nicely. It boots on my C3100, that's all it does so far. What has to be done next is described in the instructions here (copy ramdisk.img.gz, system.tar.gz and data.tar.gz, extract it, etc). I'll try tomorrow, but now it's time to get some sleep wink.gif

Good luck!

Attached File(s)
Attached File  Android_minimal.tar.gz ( 3.37MB ) Number of downloads: 158

I have it all set up, but the /dev/binder is missing, so starting android ends with an endless bouncing red dot. Anyone know how to setup the /dev/binder ?
Maybe, if some of you are interested, I could upload the installer and root filesystem somewhere for you to try it yourself

Thanks, but I'm having problems uploading the files to your server (no route to host). I'll try again later

too bad jpmatrix's ftp doesn't work for me, so I had to dust off my own server wink.gif

Download following files:
Android root filesystem
gnutar
updater.sh
zImage (patched angstrom kernel)

Copy the files to SD and flash the system in the usual way. After finishing and reboot, login with root and type /start

Now, here's where I'm having problems. The bouncing ball simple doesn't stop bouncing. What I found out was that pressing ctrl+alt and 1 or 2 a couple of times shows a logging message. After that, pressing ctrl+alt+menu shows a few system commands, like reboot, tErm, poweroff etc.

Try for yourself. Maybe I miss something simple and this is easy to solve. I've followed the instructions here strictly,

Good luck.

Yeah, I know. I'm already in contact with the blog-guy wink.gif
If you want to see what is included currently you can install the SDK and run the emulator
