Android on N810 …

I was teased by Vince, and my curiosity was too intense … But man what a disappointment !

Following my recent upgrade to Diablo, the latest OS for the N810, I did install Android on my shiny N810. What cooler stuff than Google’s own OS could there be for such a nifty device ?

This post gives you great explanation on how to do it, and it is actually really simple. You need to download this file, and this one on your internal memory card, then run the .deb one (the second one), which will open the application installer and actually install Android. After a reboot, you can go in the Extras menu to find the magic link to Android. If you select it, and wait a minute or so, you’re up and running with Google’s OS, and this just minutes after you gave it a try !

Once you have Android started, you have something that looks like a brand new OS.

Unfortunately there is only a browser application, which clearly does not stand the comparison with the OS2008 version, and couple of other application (contacts, file manager, dev tools, maps) which I did not understand how to use on a first try … So maybe I’ll have to come back to it, or get some hints from my fellow Google friends :-D. I have to say though that the map application looked cool, but I’m not sure how I could use it efficiently !

Anyhow, this answers the question … The cooler stuff than Google’s OS actually is the OS2008 from Nokia, specially the Diablo version !

  1. On a second try, I actually WAS able to restore my bookmarks. The problem was the questionning I mentionned in the article … At the first question (about the bookmark file) one shoud answer yes of course !
