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

Good job, cortez!
I just bought a used C3000 eBay specifically for experiments with Android and now flashed your image.
Looks quite quick... the network and rotate-to-landscape hacks would be nice to have setup.
How does one kill the GUI and get back to the shell prompt, what are the navigation keys (as the touchscreen is not working)?
Can you describe in more detail your build setup, especially the differences to original japanese one, if any?

I'll be spending time on this during the holidays, and even intend to install OpenEmbedded...
Thanks!

jpmatrix,

To get things working on any 2.6.23 distro, including Debian, Poky, Angstrom etc just extract the /home/root/android and the /start script from andoid-root.tar.gz. Make sure to extract android in /home/root/android, otherwise it doesn't work. If /lib/modules/2.6.23/kernel/drivers/binder doesn't exist on your distro extract this also from andoid-root.tar.gz. Finally extract /doit to force the /start script to setup the binder module correctly.

Last but not least, use the tar -xzpf options (the p is important) to make sure you keep all permissions correct.

I hope I didn't miss anything, but I think this should do the trick.

Greetz,
cortez

If you have a 2.6.23 kernel running on your 6k, then read my previous post to get Android working. Shouldn't be any problem I guess wink.gif

sds,

I'll try to incorporate all hacks available shortly. I didn't find any info on the Net about ways to exit Android, but I've found out the following:

Press CTRL+ALT+1 simultaneously for approx. 1 second to display the console. Next, keeping CTRL+ALT pressed press HOME followed by MENU. Following message is displayed:
QUOTE
SysRq : HELP : loglevel0-8 reBoot Crashdump tErm Full kIll saK showMem Nice powerOff showPc show-all-timers(Q) unRaw Sync showTasks Unmount shoW-blocked-tasks
Keeping CTRL+ALT pressed, choose one of the (bold) uppercase characters to perform the corresponding action. I don't know the meaning of all actions, but pressing I results in a forced exit. Pressing CTRL+ALT+2 returns you to Android.

My build setup is a clean Poky environment not much different from the Japanese (Angstrom) version I guess. I just added a few extras like Midnight Commander (mc) to make life a bit easier when copying/editing etc on the Zaurus.

Cheers,
cortez

That's definitely a good toy to play with in New Year!

I notice that image is for installation via the [OK] flash menu.
So anyone got it working under the debian-yonggun kernel using uboot (2or0)? wink.gif

I already did it last week. tongue.gif I built the kernel and tested it on debian. If you are interested in it, I will upload the kernel and modules.
