    Hello to all I have a Nokia 7710 and I was wondering if it would be possible to port any version of Android over to it? this is the hardware specs TI OMAP 1510 168 MHz processor. Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated. Even Android 1.5 will be great.

    Not sure if this will be of any help... http://elinux.org/Android_on_OMAP

    Haha, that's a good one.

    Wait, you aren't kidding? No. Go buy an actual Android phone. The Nokia isn't even a smartphone. 168 mhz processor, jesus. Does it even have a flash memory bigger than 50 mb?

    Today at Mobile World Congress,
    Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI)
    (NYSE: TXN) announced it will
    demonstrate an early look of the
    Android mobile platform in two
    forms: a prototype handset based on
    TI's OMAP850 processor

    Uh, that's the point. It can be ported to OMAP architecture if the processor meets a minimum requirement.

    Yours doesn't. The hardware is over six years old. Doesn't cut it. Too slow. Not enough. Insufficient. Shit. Too outdated. Antediluvian. Deal. How cheap can you possibly be? Even if by some strange miracle it can work, nobody will bother porting it to your device and make the drivers function unless you have the know-how to do it yourself.

    This is funny. I being in a similar problem wish it was possible for me to port android over to the Nokia 5800, but the boot loader is locked and I have no idea how to flash it. So on the 16th I'm getting a new phone.

    My phone has a 400mhz processor, the original G1 (HTC Dream for those of you across the pond :D) had a 528 mhz processor, and people complain of that being slow. There is no inconceivable way your device could run android, unless you want to sift through the code yourself and make enhancements.

    To do this, this would require intimate knowledge of your specific processor architecture. Something very few would have, never mind the ability. Then assuming you did this, you would have to find a way of flashing it to your device, unlocking the bootloader. It isn't worth the effort.

    If you are truly interested you can check out Nitdroid, and android port for Nokia Internet Tablets such as yours, send them an email perhaps the processes will be similar for the n770, however I think to get Nitdroid to work you need Maemo preinstalled.

    @grainysand your comment about me being cheap was not called for. I recently ordered a refurbished 7710 off of ebay cause I like it. I don't own an android cause I haven't seen any that I like. I was just asking out of curiousity if it was possible. Thanks anyway. I'm sticking with my 5800 for now.
