Now ICS would be nice!
Agreed, it would be nice, but the x86 conversion for ICS hasn't been released yet (though there were rumours of ICS being x86 compatible natively), so I cannot put it on the Joggler.

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

Still no joy on this - has anybody managed to get this to boot!
Probably going to start work on a Gingerbread port instead as the source seems to be readily available for it. Anyone interested?

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

I had another look at this yesterday and it still won't boot - has anyone been successful with this? (in other words, a shameless *bump*)

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

I've dug out the Android 2.2 image and I've extracted it. The image is partitioned so the inside the image there are 0.fat, 1.img, 2.fat and 3 (which doesn't have a file extension). I've managed to extract 0.fat and inside it lies the bootloader (preconfigured for Android - yay!) and a directory ca...

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

willing to help out along with windows, honeycomb would be frickin awesome on the joggler, maybe you should try the boot files from mijuu build on the android thread? Good idea, i'll try and dig the image out (changed computer a few days ago and haven't sorted out folder organization yet :-(). I'll...

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

I've figured out why this doesn't boot... I decompiled the image and it hasn't got a boot method that will work on the Joggler (there is a separate .img file for booting in a folder called [BOOT]). If we can get a working EFI attached to it and we recompile it then it might boot then. Also, should w...

The only thing I've managed to get this to boot on so far is Virtualbox! Runs very smoothly with 512mb ram though... ;-)

Re: X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

Interesting find. The previous versions of Android have been variations on other images from that website. They have just released release candidates for Android 2.3 for the tegra platform. This image is not mentioned anywhere on their site. If this is Honeycomb I imagine it will be very buggy. I t...

X86 Honeycomb now available - could this be ported?

I mentioned this in an earlier post appealing for information on how to port operating systems to the Joggler, but I didn't get any replies so I thought I'd start a new thread dedicated to Honeycomb on the Joggler. The below disk image has been posted on the Android X86 Google Code downloads page - ...

Re: What is required to port an OS to the Joggler?

Ah, just realised I've misread Tega (a tablet) for Tegra (an ARM-based processor). Looking at the Tega specs, that should make the job a little bit easier! I was wondering why an ARM build was put on an x86 porting site...

What is required to port an OS to the Joggler?

Hi there! Firstly, let me introduce myself. I'm Jazzmista, and though I've only just registered I have been visiting this forum ever since the last Joggler price drop - it's helped me out several times! Anyway, I am fairly computer-literate (more of a web developer, but I dabble in Java and VB) and ...
