Project aims to develop Linux and Android support for HTC Gene



How to Run It ?

  • Download Wing linux from http://sourceforge.net/projects/wing-linux/files/ .
  • Download file named wing-linux-xxxx-rootfs.cab and wing-linux-0.xxxx-gene.cab
  • make sure about having minimum 650MB free on ur memory card
  • Install the wing-linux-xxxx-rootfs.cab. It will be default installed on your storage card in folder /storage card/linux/ .
  • Install the wing-linux-0.xxxx-gene.cab.
  • Run WingLinux from Start menu.

    It will take lot of time(About 10 Minutes) for first time, but Voila! it works!!!

very much thanks to - darkstar62 and kshaurya

There is a similer thread where linux on gene was discussed. Ramersonw had succesfully ported it but was unable to control Android. I think that thread may help you.

Hi Ankit,

You will need a lot of free time to port the Android for Gene. But let us to business. First, you must port a linux kernel for the Gene. This site has a kernel that you can use. This kernel is for the HTC Wizard but his architecture is similar to Gene, it can be used. You must map the gene GPIOS too. To do this you must use the Haret and Haret Console (see how here). When you have a kernel that works, you have the basis for Android.

Things you'll need:
- A PC running a Linux distribution (Ubuntu, Debian, ...);
- A Cross Compiler (OpenEmbedded, CodeSourcery's ARM Linux tool chain);
- Haret and Haret Console;
- A source code of a kernel for OMAP 850;
- Many cups of coffee .

I will like to join into the effort of porting linux/android to GENE as it is going to open doors for our GENE to the entire new world of open source software.

I just come to know that gene's cpu (201 Mhz) too slow to run Android, but i think we have to take a chance.
