Indeed, android can be run starting with the TyTN II, not with TyTN I/Hermes. Too low in memory and cpu.

I have the TYTN/Hermes. Tried wm6.5. It's nice but very memory consuming. Eventually ended up using wm6.1 roms.

I agree w/Spardorp, Hermes resources would barely run Android.

Best to use a fast wm6.1 ROM then emulate the Android look with the use of skins/themes.

Reading the link that you provided re:Apache/Android you'll note that hardly anything useful yet works.

IOW, don't hold your breath. Until there's a "working" linux kernel for the Hermes, even a sluggish Android won't happen.

I correct myself: Android may not be sluggish on Hermes, just that it IS older ARM processor for which the original Android sourcecode would have to be recompiled.

see this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=404145

Just thought I'd say that I heard Android is a Linux distribution, or something like that. What I really heard was that Android is based on a Linux kernel. You can check for yourself here. Maybe if you got a really stripped down version of Linux you could put it on a Hermes somehow. What would be cool to is if you could modify a Hermes and install a high speed Micro SD card in side it, that can be used as RAM or something. I think they have that on a phone Called Omnia. I think it's called NAND. But anyway excuse any mistakes I have made, because I am only 11 years old.
