[APP][MortScript][Alpha] OSLoader - Android on Windows (Embedded) CE
Yes I know there is Gen.Y DualBOOT
out since January, 2010, a bootlauncher application for Windows Mobile. It is not designed to be used with landscape oriented touchscreen devices running Windows (Embedded) CE - as this is the case with many SatNav units. Also, for me, it is not generic enough, ex. drive names where an Android installation is searched for, are hardcoded. Hence I decided to 're-code' this bootloader in MortScript, so that each one can modify the code on the fly, if needed. I named the project 'OSLoader'.
Be aware, 'OSLoader' is only a bootlauncher application, so that you still need to provide a suitable Android on your CE device for yourself.
And, as it is with Gen.Y DualBOOT too, actually 'HaRET' is used to boot Android.
Besides the fact you need to provide a suitable Android on your CE device for yourself - the Android distribution that comes with 'OSLoader' only serves demonstration purposes, it doesn't make any sense to try to get Android running on Windows (Embedded) CE via 'HaRET', if you can't obtain a copy of CE's main display driver as named in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\GDI\Drivers\MainDisplay, (perhaps using tool 'NDumpCE' by ablbd and renaming this 'ddi.dll' to 'ace_ddi.dll' ) this because 'HaRET' (at least all its current available versions I've used) expects library 'ace_ddi.dll' (a Samsung's main display driver) to be present in device's folder \Windows. Of course 'OSLoader' comes with a 'ace_ddi.dll' replacement...
'OSLoader' is still under development. It may be incomplete, may contain bugs. Please feel free to report any bugs, suggest any improvements.
