    It's the uninstall step which locks the current kernel in place.

    Yep. Looks like my TouchPad has got to make a trip to the doctor.

    I might just hold of on doctoring, to try out the the next version of this. I believe an update, that actually has android running in a card, is just around the corner. In any case, as luck would have it, I should be getting my 2nd 32GB TouchPad tommorrow. I can use that, to start fresh with my current profile and use this tPad for the experimenting. After all, there's a little matter of webOS 3.0.3/3.0.4 to try out too. So in a way, this isn't all that bad.

    This is way too buggy and definately not worth installing. For in the end, it does not even run enough to give you a reasonable look at Android. Also, this version, as the previous one, installs it's own kernel and it runs only at Palm default 1.188 GHz. Th good news is, that it seems like this version uninstalls cleanly and the uninstall restores the previous kernel that had been overwritten at the time of install.

    To use games after using it you have to restart the TouchPad.

    even with all those issues it sounds like an incredible feat, esp as its a 1 man attempt at making the thing nativeish.

    again tho id be massivly impressed if the android apps appeared in a "android" menu, like our app/downloads/faves menus, then when clicked the app only appears in a card, the gui/guts of android being hidden/never shown.

    afterall i doubt anyone would say they prefer the android gui/os over webOS, its 99% of the time "i want app xyz from android" and thats it.

    I'm in that boat.. there are two apps I need on my touchpad.
    RDC is coming and I'm content to wait
    the other is Square... I've talked to the devs over there and they are not planning a touchpad release.
    apple and android only

    Although I had a card running after I tried this, Android remained running in the background, even after closing the card. Sometimes the Android lock screen would come up over webOS. The flickering seems to be webOS and Android fighting over the framebuffer, or something like that. It also replaced the kernel with one that presumably is patched to be able to run both webOS and Android . . . Of course, I've just made a trip to the Doctor, and was planning on doing it again anyway before the next webOS updates come out.. So, yeah, that's just something we'll probably have to deal with. It is quite an achievement, I'd say though. Hopefully they can figure out the fighting issues, and get it to run in a card properly.. Then I can run Ubuntu in a card, Android in a card, and Splashtop to connect to WIndows. WebOS suddenly becomes the OS/2 of this decade. Unfortunately, it's heading in the same direction as well.

    cant seem to get apks to install, when I move files to the newly created apk folder in media/internal, that process start then i get an "Out of Space" pop up

    Any advice?

    EDIT: I managed to get pacman working. I tried this apk because of the small size...worked fine.

    It appears that there is a limit to the size of the apks that can be installed, at least for the time being.

    I'm surprised you got that far, once getting passed the lock screen (while flickering constantly) it just black screened on app draw. Seems a massive step back from previous version in terms of stability, but runs much better under webOS now clearly.

    Uninstalled cleanly too. Looking forward to future releases now.

    Edit: Try reading 5th problem on list above to solve your problem.

    found out what i was doing wrong...once you move apks into the APK folder they automatically install...

    I was trying to install them through the EZ file Explorer.

    That being said no luck with getting the Market to work.

    After unsuccessfully clicking randomly all over the Chinese website (felt like I was playing Monkey Island again ) I resorted to google and found this page:

    Android on Webos (chroid) 0.1 Alpha is out for tasting. (update 10/08 IPK) - xda-developers

    Contains latest updates to the Chroid project, as well as the .ipk for v0.1.0
    Also, since I hate these download sites, I'll post the share link from my Zumodrive as soon as it's done uploading...

    Now that he's releasing the source, maybe we'll start to see more robust implementations following the same basic idea of running Android in a card - because that is just genius.

    Dang straight. I don't need this right now but the guy ought to set up a paypal donation fund to help him keep working on this (if he hasn't already) I would thought him a couple bucks just to encourage him further.

    It's a little bit off-topic, but where did you get this app? I have some friends owning a N900, too - and they sure would be interested in an webOS "emulator".
