Just curious to see if anyone has tried to port Android over to Ipaq? I figured someone running angstrom would have tried by now. blink.gif

On iPaq most of the kernel builded for Angstrom were 2.6.23 below ... so since the 1st release of android sdk is build for 2.6.23 ...

Since we do not have the source of Android ... so with diff and cracking techniques to get it work on a lower kernel build is a tough job.

Hope my explanation gives u some idea.

Yes, i tried (borrowed chroot installation from www.omegamoon.com) on HX4705. Touchscreen didnt work. buttons worked randomly. But I can tell you it looked awesome. I have sold my pda since then. Waiting for actual Android based hardware to come out. I also own the iphone and i can tell that if something can beat the iphone its an Android based phone smile.gif

Hi Whtslmndr,

Since you have successfully port over Android to HP Ipaq device.
So I wonder how may it possible now, to recompile a later release of Linux kernel + Android to run on Ipaq h2200?
(Since the Android source ard available)

I heard the reason being no kernel build >= 2.6.23 is due to the unresolved NAND memory mechanism something ... will that be a difficulty that I should taken care of too?

Please kindly give me some guides/hints if you know how, thanks.
