Hi,

For the time being posted here in "General Discussion" since there is no dedicated Android subforum (yet). Tested on my SL-C3100, this is a small bootable Poky 2.6.23 kernel with a copy of the Android OS from the SDK (qemu) emulator.

Installation is done in the usual way:

1. Download zImage.bin, updater.sh, gnu-tar and android-root.tar.gz and copy the files to a SD card
2. Remove battery and power adapter cable
3. Wait for 5 seconds
4. Replace battery, close and lock battery cover
5. Attach power adapter cable
6. Keep OK button pressed while pressing on/off switch
7. From the Japanese menu, choose option 4 (Update), then 2 (SD) and finally Y

Flashing starts, and you are asked if you want to flash the kernel, if you want the microdrive to be formatted and if you want the root filesystem to be installed.
Accept all questions answering them with y

After flashing is complete, the machine is rebooted. Login with root and type /start to start Android.
This is the basic version, without any of the patches found across the Net.

Have fun, and share your results and findings here please!

Updated: There is a special version for the SL-C1000. Downloads and instructions can be found at www.omegamoon.com
Updated: A test version for the SL-C7x0 and SL-C860 can be downloaded from www.omegamoon.com. Please test and give feedback

Greetz,
cortez

i'm currently trying to make it run on a C1000 running angstrom console image. it does run, but i can't get past the bouncing red eye. it just keeps bouncing and nothing happens. the main problem with running android on a C1000 and on earlier models is the jffs2 filesystem. i heard android won't work on a jffs2 filesystem. i'm currently trying to run it from the sd card. any useful advice is most welcome. :-)
