In theory you could run X and wine with qemu and binfmt support in a chroot.

I understood none of that :P
This isn't omnimaga related but boy do I love osu!

I've got a present for you :D

Far from complete, but works.
Using qt and running on linux natively.

That exactly. Nspire-emu is like, the only thing I rely on Wine for atm. :P

Yes, in the way of "implementing support until it's usable", but not in the way of "I'll maintain it until we both are dead" :P
There is no current "maintainer", it's just floating around the internet.

I've still got IDA. It's a real PITA to use sometimes.

Can someone install Qt for Android and try to cross-compile the code from http://github.com/Vogtinator/nspire_emu?
It should be possible now to run it on other platforms. It's probably a bit too slow to be usable, but it should work.

Edit: With some minimal changes it compiles and runs, but crashes somewhere in boot1. I'll debug it and upload for tests, if anybody wants to test nspire_emu on his android phone.

I have a Nexus 4 (with CM11) and the Android SDK. I can give it a shot this weekend.

You might want to try try radare2. You can import the Nspire .idc files using a script called idc2rdb. Although radare2 doesn't have a good GUI and it lacks decompilation support.

In theory you could run X and wine with qemu and binfmt support in a chroot.
If you just want some calculating capabilities similiar to the nspire, there are some apps in the store.
I tried that once, but apparently qemu required a patch for something called "NTPL support" to run wine :P

BTW, what about QT for iOS ? It compiles fine (and runs almost fine, probably the same issue you mentioned) on Mac, so... maybe ?
I can try (sometime later....), I guess, as I have a iOS dev. account.

Anyway, ARM emu on ARM, though... :P

Does ARM support hardware virtualization ?

The core of a good reverse engineer tool is to provide a nice user interface. Decompilation is mostly useless anyway. I'll try it, do you use it?

You know, "there's an app for that" :P I'm sure that somewhere is wine on an android device on the internet. Wouldn't be much fun, though.

It may work but be even slower as iOS has some massive restrictions. But I guess it would run on iOS as well if it works on android.

Most ARM processors in consumer devices don't, but AFAIK Aarch64 requires it. (Xen and KVM support the extensions already, they're quite new)
Some kind of accelleration would be needed, though, I had to wait for ~8m to boot this:


Also, I had to do a quick hack to display the 4bit framebuffer, that's why it's blue for now.
I had to use a classic image as my device doesn't have enough RAM to allocate the various caches, flash and SDRAM, I'll have to change that to utilize nmap.

Really, nspire_emu on Android phone would be amazing! :D
But I don't know how to perform what you're asking to do with Qt, Vogtinator.

Well, as you can see above, I couldn't resist so installed the Android SDK, NDK and Qt SDK for Android and it works already :P

Dude, that's amazing. I wonder if you could compile it to run on the Nspire :P
