Installing Android on a Notebook Toshiba Satellite SM-30?


Hello,

For a friend of mine, that would like to begin with computers (yes, really), the idea was to install Android to start on it.

Would you know if it would be possible to install Android 3.x or 4.x on this given machine (having wifi, rj45 ethernet working, graphics)?

Looking forward to hearing you !!

Best regards

Have you looked at this web site yet? Your laptop is not supported.

too bad, Thank you!! I was thinking that, although, Android could be installed on any computers.

It's Linux, I see no reasons of always protecting source code ... https://groups.google.com/forum/#!ms...E/naTs0wGAvHEJ


what about qemu ? I will look into that direction. Maybe there are more chances ...

Maybe by using the bios of eeepc and running the iso ?

# asus eeepc pc
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/Eee...-ASUS-1202.zip
http://android-x86.googlecode.com/fi...-RC2-eeepc.iso


what about this code to run android on any machines?

Code:
[ ! -f android-x86-4.0-RC2-eeepc.iso ]  && wget  http://android-x86.googlecode.com/files/android-x86-4.0-RC2-eeepc.iso
mkdir foo
cd foo
if [ ! -f bios.bin ] ; then
wget http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/EeePC/1005P/1005P-ASUS-1202.zip
unzip 1005P-ASUS-1202.zip
mv 1005P-ASUS-1202.zip bios.bin
fi
cd ..
qemu -L foo -cdrom android-x86-4.0-RC2-eeepc.iso
