bin file on x86 can be run on ARM?
 
Hi all

I am not sure whether bin executive files like echo, cat, etc. can be run on my Android phone whose cpu is ARM.

If can't, where should I download the executive files to my phone?

Thx

not exactly runnable.

you should locate the source of these programs on your linux desktop and recompile them using 'gcc' with a switch that sets the target cpu as arm instead of the default x86. then copy the progs across.

or you could download them -- but who knows how they've been altered.

Thank you jon,

That's really a good idea, I will try it when I get my PC. ^^
