Hi,

I am very interested and new to Android. I have a board of an ARM11
board which can already boot up with Linux. How could I port Android
to run on it ? Anyone have experience on it. Thanks for sharing.

Hello, friend,

My board is a ARM11 SoC from a new IC company. It'd be great if there's a note on the Android porting stuff.

Of course, I'd do it if any progress found.

Keep sharing here !
Thanks.

Hi,

Now I have ported Android ( both m3 and m5) on my ARM11 based SoC.
Let me know if you still have any specific issue with porting on ARM11.

Thanks
Rizz

Sorry, I don't face this problem during my porting.

I am using ramfs as my native fs and sd card ( with ext2 fs) for android-fs.
First booting with my ramfs and then switching to android-fs (which is on sd card ) with script ( chroot /mnt /system/bin/sh)
and then executing script to launch android.

I was trying with NAND flash ( android fs on NAND) and getting lots of problem, once I shifted to sd card ( for android fs)
I didnt face any major issue. Try this combination if you can.

Thanks
Rizz

I have a board of an ARM11 board(S3C6400) which can already boot up
with Linux(2.6.21). I port Android on this ----

I am porting the android onto s3c6400.
I referred the procedures mentioned in the following websites
before starting the porting

1.http://benno.id.au/blog/2007/11/21/android-neo1973
2.http://euedge.com/blog/2007/12/06/google-android-runs-on-sharp-
zaurus-sl-c760/
3.http://elinux.org/Android_on_OMAP

I have changed my 2.6.21 kernel following the above instruction and
now my android kernel is start booting on to s3c6400 now i am stuck at
this point how to get libc and Delvik virtual machine for android
which support ARM11 based architecure........i extract system.tar from
my running emulator but how do i know that libc will support ARM11

if you have any information or suggestion that iam very thankfull
pls reply me soon
regards
Abhishek
