Is it posible to install Android (any version) on a Samsung S5230?
Thanks in advance
Sorry for bumping this up, but I have exactly the same question.
Sorry to say, but processor is incompatible (Intel XScale ARMv5, Android uses at least ARMv6) and slow, memory won't be enough, so no, it's not possible.
Hey Samsung Star is Compatible
and star processor is not Intel
Samsung Star has the minimum requirements needed to port Android
Samsung Stars Full Specifications are here
S3C2410 ( CPU )
S3 (System LSI) : Microcontroller
C (Small Classification): MASK ROM
2 (Core) : 32-bit ARM9
410 : ARM 9 Series (920T)
Features : MMU, NAND Flash Boot Loader, ROM/SRAM/SDRAM Control, STN/TFT LCD Control, Touch Panel Control, MMC/SD Card, USB, 10bit ADC
Speed : 200MHz,266MHz
16/32-bit RISC microprocessor is designed to provide a cost-effective, low-power, small die size and high-performance microcontroller solution for hand held devices and general mobile applications.
To reduce total system cost, the S3C2410 also provides the following features: separate 16KB Instruction and 16KB Data Cache, MMU to handle virtual memory management, LCD controller (STN & TFT), NAND Flash Boot loader, System Manager (chip select logic, SDRAM controller), 3-ch UART with handshake, 4-ch DMA, 4-ch Timers with PWM, I/O Ports, RTC, 8- ch 10-bit ADC and touch screen interface, IIC-BUS interface, IIS-BUS interface, USB Host, USB Device, SD Host & Multimedia Card Interface, 2-ch SPI and PLL for clock generation.
The S3C2410 is developed using an ARM920T core, 0.18um CMOS standard cells and a memory complier. Its low-power, simple, elegant and fully static design is particularly suitable for cost and power sensitive applications. Also, the S3C2410 adopts a new bus architecture, AMBA (Advanced Microcontroller Bus Architecture) An outstanding feature of the S3C2410 is its CPU core, a 16/32-bit ARM920T RISC processor designed by Advanced RISC Machines, Ltd. By providing a complete set of common system peripherals, the S3C2410 minimizes overall system costs and eliminates the need to configure additional components.
