I am wondering if we could get someone who knows a lot more about porting webOS to android phones than I do to make a list of conditions that need to be met in order to port webOS to said phone or a link to where it's already been done. Thanks!

To play by the rules we need Open webOS. Once that is out, we can see what kernel it is using, what drivers it has, etc.

I'm no dev but how I see it is:

1) Wait for webOS to be fully open source
2) Get a dev on board who is willing to attempt a port
3) Attempt to port.

Why do we have to wait until open webos is out? Why assemble a team then and not now? is it not possible for someone to butter up HP and get them to release some things early to per say: webOSInternals?

Also, wondering why a team hasn't been created yet.. Cynagmod or whatever it's called has like Hundreds of members all collaborating together.. In order to port webOS to a Android device, i think it might be a good idea to begin assembling now!

IF, (big if), there's a team already on it, they're under NDA, read not allowed to talk about it in public.

Second point, open source does not mean simply releasing the code, there are modifications that need to be made first. This is why the roadmap was created, these things take time.
