Android 32bit / 64bit conflict
 
Hello,
Thanks for considering my 1st post.

Issue = 64bit hardware on a LG-k5 Smart Phone but they (Boost)
loaded & shipped 32bit Android OS.
Why? (my guess $$$)

I need need to put a Non-rooted version of ANY linux on this hand held.

I have been laid off. This this the only device I have left & CanNot attempt to root/brick this box!

I am not a newbie... Network Egineer by trade. Just having some troubles...

Sorry, my 1st post & have not created a profile yet, I know what follows belongs there & promise to put it there, please endolg me?


Resume:
Network: Cisco /Juniper / OpenSoure
OpSys: SantaCruz, SunOS/Solris,
Redhat/CentOS/Fedoria
Debian & some of her friends...

All my attements...
..andronix, useland, Anlinux & others...
want to push 64bit code to a 32bit OS running on 64bit hardware.

Most eventualy pull up termux/proot & have me paste a config/compile script. All end with their version of termination code, pointing to the opening issue.

Any help would be great!

Thank you in advane.

You want to replace the Android version on your Android device with a full GNU/Linux? Why?
Anyhow, your best bet is https://forum.xda-developers.com/ - they have subforums for all sorts of devices. Or maybe LineageOS could be an option?

Linux on an Android phone is a non-starter. But there should be Android ROMs for that phone on xda-developers, for free. Money is not the reason for using 32-bit Android, because it's all free. Only Microsoft and Apple charge for their operating systems. Android and Linux are free, and freely modifiable. There will be instructions for flashing the ROM on xda-developers.

Yeah, that is not likely to be an issue.
It's very likely that they chose what performs best on that device, and that might well be a 32bit OS.

Why do you think there's a conflict?

Do you actually rely on a 64bit OS?
