A: MagicCode is a software designed by "c0demag1c dev team"to make it possible to run a arm based nativec apk on a mips device.It change the .so in the apk to the mips mode directllllly so that users can run a arm-apk easily.

Q:Using the MagicCode,can all of the arm based app working?
A:No,just as I said,it's still a dev version and there are still work we need to do to fix the MagicCode.So u can only run a few apks which they don't work before on ur mips device.Don't reply us about xxx apk can't work with MagicCode.We'll try to fix it but we can't promise it will be perfect.
----------------------------------------------------------
Q:How can i install the magicCode?
A:It's quite simple,we test our apk on Ainol Novo7 Basic and Knight with 3.2HoneyComb and 4.01 ICS Custom Rom.So,if u have the same device(or other device running the android 3.2 rom),u can install the apk as the other apk such as FaceBook,Twitter. And then,what u need to do is just open the apk and then trun on it,waiting for a few minutes and emjoy urself!.

Great news. This is something can show that basic is not a bad idea to buy now.Hopefully in the future I can see many HD games can run on the basic. I'll try this and let you know if is working fine at this moment with HC. Thanks again for this application. Best regards

mmm what this app do exactly? it converts arm assembler code intro mips assembler code of the .so files?

BTW, just a warning, DONT ATTEMPT to install Chainfire3D driver, because, with this, the chainfire 3d apk installs and works, but hangs the device while installing the driver and it will not longer boot, and a "firmware update" will be nesesary.

BTW2, we should expect a performance hit? mame4droid now works, but is way slow.

Good Night

This is my first post hoping this works for programs apk
Install it on my Novo7 with HC 3.2 (is root and the operating system is the same that came with the tablet) but when I open I get a message "OS not supported", then press "ON", then the message "Waiting" and stays there doing nothing more
I need to load a special ROM to test apk?

Thanks and forgive my English

My main interest is to get the Skype apk to run on my MIPS novo basic. If MagicCode can make that happen then I'm more than happy to pay for it. I'll be wathing this thread... Thanx all u MagicCode workers!

im still unable to edit the build.prop in a way so the device can still boot up and arm apps apear on market. But that is a totally diferent matter.

So far its good, mame4droid run slow for some reason, but other emus are now working and run fine.
If you can check why skype and netflix arent working, i think me and every basic user will be very gratefull.

BTW, i have a question, the .so libs are "translated" to mips in real time or they are "translated" when installed? if the second is the case, it shouldt be easier to do a program that transate the .so files in a apk offline in any desktop pc? with that you dont need to worry about android versions.

I tested some aplications and games and most now can be installed but only one or two of almost 10 I tested can run :) One is a game ninja rush. Skype I have installed it but cannot sign in. Another game I can run is the asphalt 5 HD but need data to download and if I put a microSD, it still aking for external memory, no idea why!
Waiting for any update of the MagicCode. Thank you!

Brilliant bit of work guys, I can confirm that Swype works using this program, I am continuing to test others (Like Opera Browser) and I will report back as I find out more.

EDIT: I can confirm that, although Opera installs, it crashes on launch, I have not run a LogCat on it but there is no visible error, not even an FC message.

Hey guys,

I am also having troubles with the magic-code app, but i have come to the conclusion by reading this thread that i need the HC 1217 update or rom? a finger in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. =]

Thanks,

Great work! Many ARM apps now work on Novo 7 basic.

It seems that MagicCode is doing dynamic translation, when the setting is "off", the installed apps won't run; set it back to "on", then those apps work again.

It's difficult to say how long will take to finish the ics version.

May b a mouth or even longer since the kernel 3.0.x works quite different to kernel2.6.x.

It's noly a dev version now.

forget about ICS for now, its not needed. DalvikTurbo will be avalible for 3.2 first anyway.

Any chance for a desktop version that could fully translate the .so files once, instead of having to do it on fly?

Holding a Novo 7 Paladin with ICS on it right now...I could definitely use this for 4.0. ;)

    Hi,

    If anyone is having problems activating Magic Code ("Magic Code ON failed") as I was having on ICS 4.0.3 on a Novo 7 Basic (Paladin should be the same), here is why. The installed busybox version is probably faulty, so I compiled it on my own. Here's the link, hope it'll be helpful for someone: http://www.mediafire.com/?2ryf21mikwnwewf

    What you have to do to replace:
    Code:
    adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system
    adb shell mv /system/bin/busybox /system/bin/busybox.old
    adb push busybox /system/bin/
    adb shell chmod 755 /system/bin/busybox
    adb shell mount -o remount,ro /system

    To restore the old one:
    Code:
    adb shell mount -o remount,rw /system
    adb shell rm /system/bin/busybox
    adb shell mv /system/bin/busybox.old /system/bin/busybox
    adb shell mount -o remount,ro /system

    Good luck ;)
