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!

Below is my original post that someone might find useful...
But right after finagling with this for hours (and starting this thread), I discovered a very simple way to do it without all these plugins.
Basically my problem stemmed from the fact that I couldn't find a template for an AWT Frame in NetBeans so for some reason I assumed it didn't exist.
It's "hidden" in the "New File" dialog. I was only using the right click "New" which only shows JFrames, bah!
Anyway... you still need to set the Source Level to 1.3
Bah humbug, that was my morning
This works for me using Windows running on Parallels and running the resultant app on my SL-6000.
Install NetBeans 5.5
Install NetBeans 5.5 Mobility Pack for CDC
Install Nokia Series 80 Platform SDK for Symbian OS, for Java, Personal Profile (download the Personal Profile version as opposed to the MIDP one).
Be sure to register the Nokia platform in NetBeans from the Java Platform Manager menu.
Choose New Project.
Select CDC Application.
Select Nokia S80 CDC S80_DP2.0_PP_SDK as your Platform, CDC S80_DP2.0_PP_SDK as your Device, and PP-1.0 as your Profile (these should be default).
Name your project, leave other options as default.
You can now build your app as desired.
I personally find it helpful to include a "Close" button into the interface so you can end the program without having to close the Nokia emulator which take a while to load (at least in Parallels).
To create a jar runnable on the Zaurus:
Right click your project and select Properties.
Change Source Level to 1.3 (for some reason this doesn't get saved on restarts) and click OK.
Right click your project again.
Select Build Target Bundle.
The resultant jar file will be placed in the target directory of your NetBeans project directory.
Copy that jar file to the Zaurus and run using the command: evm -jar AppName.jar
