You'd want to check the XDA forums for that project. I believe it's been discussed for quite a while. The Veer is closer to the Pixi in size only.

There are ARMv6 Android devices out there (hence how the guys at WebOS-Internals were able to overclock it) so it really shouldn't be too hard. And since those devices share the same processor, which probably shares many other components on it as well, drivers too shouldn't be too bad. In the end, if Android was able to be ported to a Tungsten C, a Pixi should be easier.

The Veer's port isn't even ready for normal use IIRC...

(I see you followed DGOS too)

Yeah, I'm a little disappointed with Dmitry. Both in him giving up on that and leaving me in the cold when nuROM didn't put a necessary file in the ROM of my TX when it said it did.

Sounds like an excellent recipe for screwing up your Pixi.

ARMv7 vs. ARMv6. The two are not compatible.

Wow haven't been on for long decided to check anything new and found someone replied.

It might still be possible to since there are many device with the same hardware as pixi and even weaker ones which run Android, all devices with the same processor Snapdragon just ctrl+f and search pixi it'll show all related devices. The only problem is to atleast get it to boot since you need to get uimage.install and other stuff working if that can be done the drivers should be no prob. but im not so advanced at developing (newbie), but if someone does decide to work on it i'll be glad to help out.

ANDROID on pixi

I understand his position though, since I haven't seen anyone else with a Palm OS PDA or Treo in public.
I used to have a Lifedrive (with flash CF card), and when I tried out PowerDrive, my thing bricked.
A shame.

he's like a genius.
