Android reaches the Nspire!
« on: June 27, 2015, 03:35:30 pm »

For quite some time it has been possible to run Linux on the Nspire series.

A few days ago it was made possible to run Android 1.6 ("Donut") on your Nspire! You can connect things like keyboard or Wifi sticks via the USB dongle.
Developed by Joshuamax this appears to be a fork off of Kernel 4.x
Of course this project is Open-Source and anyone can feel free to contribute here!

Probably, you'd have to make sure android/linux support the wifi dongle and that the pages you are going too don't crash the android browser (limited ram compared to most android phones).

You can already do that with GNU/Linux. :)

That's pretty awesome! Android 1.6 is useful for basically nothing (compared to say... 2.3 - :3), but it's awesome anyway!

Well, that's pretty cool. It's pretty much a proof of concept, but that's still pretty cool.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

This is simply amazing. I don't know of any other way to put it.
This used to contain a signature.
