Hi!

I was wondering how hard it would be to port a early release of android like 1.6 Doughnut to my Kindle?

It has a ARMv7 running at 800mhz, 256mb of ram and a Eink touch screen.

The kindle OS on it is based off Linux 2.6 so it should not really be that hard

Thanks for your time.

your right it shouldnt be that hard of a project, the nook simple touch is already running android 2.1 but with android 1.6 your almost unable to use any apps because everything is requiring 2.2 and up nowadays.

Hello again!
Hi I have a few questions

1.What os would you use to make the custom android? (I have a iMac running mac OSX)
2.What programs would you use to develop the custom android?
3.What version of android? (My kindle has only 2gb of storage and no microsd slot
Also it only has one hardware button which is the power button so how could you use a version older from ICS that doesn't emulate buttons?
4.The drivers I need are Display,Touch,Wifi and power button. so how would I get them?
5.I think my kindle could be rooted because it runs a custom distro.
6.How could I delete Kindle os and install android?
7.Would the linux 2.6 kernel work with android?
8.You can get the kindle os on the internet in a bin file. Would it have drivers that would work with android?

How should I start?

Thanks
