Sorry for not posting this in the Tosa forum but there's like 20 sticky threads in there so I figure it would probably be overlooked (and it is Android related too).

I would like to try getting Android on the 6000 but I'm not really sure how to go about doing it.

Do we have to use the Angstrom distribution kernel and put Android on top of it (like how cortez is doing it on the 3000)? Is there some way we can make an easy to flash distribution?

I'm not really sure where to start, and some things that might be obvious to others are unknown to me (for example, I can't figure out how to turn the tar.gz packages built by the Angstrom auto-builder into an installable image for my 6000) so I need help. But, I'm a pretty quick learner and if anyone's interested in helping me I'd like to give it a shot.

Android with Angstrom could be the modern OS that revives our 6000's and makes them useful again!

Okay, I got it to the oscillating cylon eye but it doesn't go any further.

I first flashed a small Angstrom console image onto the device. Then I copied cortez's SL-C3x00 Android image to an ext2 formatted SD card (the image I used didn't recognize CF cards or ext3 format).

Then booted the Z and untarred the android image onto the card (I recommend using the -v switch with tar as it took about 3 hours).

Then I chrooted to /media/card

There is a shell script here called start. The first thing it does is tar up /dev and untar it to /home/root/android-root/dev. I performed this part of the script manually because I like to include the -v switch (then removed the doit placeholder file - take a look at the script).

I then ran the start script and it booted into the oscillating eye.

The version of Angstrom I'm using is 2007.12-r8 tosa console image. The Android I used was the SL-C3x00 image from Omegamoon blog (but I don't know what version it is).

If anyone knows of a more functional Angstrom image for the Tosa that would help. The one I'm using has no wireless so I can't even ssh in.
