    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering, could it be possible to dual boot Android on the Pre 3 ?
    Actually, I miss a GPS navigation app like the one you can find on Android phones.

    If this is a possible for the Touchpad, why not for the Pre 3 ?

    Thank you for your answers,
    Simon.

    Interesting thought, but then someone with developer experience would have to want Android on a Pre3. I suspect the main motivation people have porting Android to the TP relates to the $100 and $150 value the fire-sale provides. How many 1.2 ghz Dual-core tablets with a 1gb or RAM and 16/32gb of storage go for less then $200...none last that I checked.

    I love webOS and I also suspect the Android hackers will want to keep Dual-boot options since even they'll see how nice webOS is and want to have both options on their TP systems. This is my hope! Sorli...

    Yes, I agree, I'd like to have both Android and WebOS.

    Can any developer tell us if this would be possible ? Is there any option to replace the current bootloader with maybe a GRUB ?
    Or share the same kernel between WebOS and Android ?

    Say no to Android

    How about a Wine-like option?

    There are some progams (like WhatsApp, Waze) whose developers are not interested to port their application to WebOS. In that case I would like to run such an application under a wine-like emulator.

    This has been pursued but maybe abandoned? Android under webOS on Touchpad - WebOS Internals

    If you want more software, maybe set up a debian chroot? Kind of cumbersome to use on the pre-/pre+/pre2 screen in my experience, but probably much better on the Pre3?

    Yes it is. Somebody just needs to port it. The bootloader is the same as the Veer and that can run Android.
