Redirect?

Q: Shouldn't this page be removed and just redirected to Android on Freerunner? Or am I missing something? --JohnSullivan 16:51, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

A: I refactored thos pages and separated the content between installation (Android on Freerunner), development (Android porting) and usage (Android usage). I think it's more clear than before where there was duplicate content and content for different audiances mixed. --jernst 17:09, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Can we rename the Android on Freerunner page then? The name doesn't say anything about installation... How about, Android Installation, if that's what you are aiming for. There's plenty of info on that page that isn't directly related to installation, and now that I'm actually playing with Android I'm finding the separation confusing.--JohnSullivan 18:20, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Scanning for Files That Use the ARMv5TE ISA

"exit -1" does not work with every /bin/sh. Anyway, if you want to give a hint, make it look like this:

if [ $# -ne 1 ]; then
echo "usage: $0 android-directoy"
exit 255
fi

Android compared to OpenMoko OS?

As a layman (ie. non-Hacker) I would personally love to see an indepth comparison between the Android OS and the OpenMoko OS, from the point of view of the user / consumer, as of the moment.

In other words, I would love to see (for example) what I would be getting if I installed Android on the Freerunner, feature-wise, as opposed to keeping the already installed OS. I think I would also be interested if it would be a good idea, feature-wise, to ditch the T-Mobile G1's (aka. HTC Dream's) native Android installation for OpenMoko OS.

You know, just to get the competitive spirit going ;)

(Btw, right now an unlocked HTC Dream and a Freeruner both cost US$399...) --Lemi4 01:22, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Running speed?

Does Android really run this slow or is my Freerunner in bad shape? There is a half second delay between clicking and anything happening on screen. The API finger-painting demo is also laughably slow. On the other hand, the SurfaceView Overlay runs at (what I consider) a reasonable speed for the hardware.
