Question Simple mobiles, without advanced features. Is it possible?


Is it possible install an alternative OS on cheap cellphones? I have one without advanced features, but imagined that powerful enough to play mp3 if modified.

I think that newer advanced cells are improved over before newer. Thus for those OS are probaly more reusable. Develop to simple cellphones should be easier than complexes, but maybe specific a lot and not reusable.

Still, exist some OS for cheap cellphones or some project?

While you could probably get the kernel booting on most of the basic cell phones on the market today, there isn't really enough interest to get any development going in terms of bootloaders, kernel patches, and that sort of thing.
