Hi there,

I'd love to put Android onto my HX4700 so I'm trying to find if someone has compiled it yet. Any ideas / links?

I did a quick hunt and found this link


There were a load on Google, but unfortunately most of them were broken... I think that the HX4700 has full Linux support, so ultimately Android could be ported, but I'm not too sure about it. I don't really know the internal Android workings.

Please, guys!
Somebody needs to make an android rom for hx4700!
I have it here standing with crappy windows mobile on it!
Unfortunately, I dont know how to make roms but someone here knows...more of them
So, please ppl, screw windows mobile roms and start working on android.
I think its a lot faster than windows mobile 6.1
It has a huge library of apps too! It would be great-linux or android-anything but slow windows
Don't kill this thread-we NEED android

I started working on this a few days ago I'm new to the android build experience though. But I do have ubuntu booting up to the login screen, and Android crapping out shortly after running init.

I'm to upload a CF image for ubuntu as soon as dd finishes and tar has had it's way with the file. I do need help and I'm asking for your's drop by and check it out, test it and help me figure out the touch screen and mouse pad. After getting ubuntu to run on these marvellous devices android should become easier to do.

Talking HX4700 sous Android (Seems to be working !)
Hi !

I found this :
http ://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtopic=316311
You need to understand Russian (or use google translator) but is worst the try !

Instructions to build an Android system for an HX4700 device are here:
http ://boneshaker.devio.us/hx4700/

In addition those instrucions make you build a 2.6.29 kernel. As I write those lines, it might be possible to build a 3.X kernel that should be best suited for those devices.

Sorry for the link but the antispam regulation forbid me to do better.
Pictures of the results are available on those sites
Enjoy !

PS: I'm currently working on building this kind of system for my device (without Haret). When it'll be done I'll post the ROM.
