Android on the iPhone!

April 24, 2010

FINALLY!

That was my first thought when I saw this post and watched the video 🙂 I just finished installing it on my iPhone, finally it’ll be put to some use 😉

It’s just the first alpha release so things are a bit dodgy but it’s fantastic news anyway and I bet it’ll be improved quickly now. The prebuilt binaries contain Android 1.6 but others built 2.0 and 2.1 working images as well.

Two hints if you want to try it on your own. I found this tutorial for dummies very helpful. To easily extract firmware you may want to use commands from this page.

breiPott: Free (as in Freedom) music party in Berlin

I just read an exciting post by Robert Schuster. I’ll quote Rob’s words:

Yesterday I learned about a club in my city that exclusively plays CreativeCommons-licensed music. According to their website they also make sure that only those variants of the CC-licenses are used that free software people would identify as ‘free’ 🙂

Damn, I find it so cool when people combine all those free as in freedom things! In my opinion this is exactly the goal we wanted to achieve with the free software movement and which many of its naysayers and opponents did not get. 🙂

Well put and thanks for posting about it! 🙂 I don’t know about you but I find this kind of news very exciting and encouraging 🙂

Recently I started to experiment with Sidekick development. All nice and fine, Danger Developer Zone provides reasonable documentation, nice SDK with a complete, cross-platform ant-based build system along with a decent emulator and a number of examples. That was the good part.
