Android OS on your Samsung Jet

Smarter than a smartphone. Yup thats true if you’re a 6 year old kid, or living in stone age. This marketing scheme is controversial and misleading. Having a great hardware but crippled with crappy OS is certainly a curse to the 800MHz processing CPU as advertised. It doesn’t has smartphone features; installing additional applications is only limited to Java mobile platform. But on the other, it was still a great Buy “”, Buy “”, Buy “” Without Prescription phone and best bang for buck if you’re not a techno geek and you basically looking for great multimedia features. To maximize the potential of Jet. A group of people has come up with an idea of installing Android operating system (OS) on Jet. The key person was Dopi. He was the person who started the Jetdroid group. These are the people who got tired of the sluggishness and bugs-full of the Samsung proprietary OS. A notable one would be the memory leak problem, where your Jet will be out of memory after using for a Silagra few days. Some Jet users in Jetdroid reported that it was caused by the messaging, where everytime you text a short message, the memory won’t be Kamagra Soft freed up after that.

Installing an OS for a handset(Android in this respect) is not as straightforward as it is for a computer.

  1. You have to get the bootloader to boot up the Android OS. Thus, needing to mod the bootloader comes with the handset.
  2. Since 3rd party OS will be installed on the SD card for safety reason(you won’t screw up if it fails), it would be necessary to initialize the SD card upon booting as well.
  3. Compiling the Android OS which includes all the necessary drivers for booting up the handset. Initial stage may only need the crucial parts only like the AMOLED screen, CPU, memory controller, storage controller and the touch input.
  4. Get all the hardware drivers

Of course, the above mentioned are just a rough explanation, but you get the idea here.  It isn’t easy and these people dedicated to make this possible deserves an applause.  On top of that, they didn’t get any payment whatsoever. But it was sickening for seeing people asking the status of the project all the time. Reminds me of stupid Project Manager in an IT firm.

If you are deemed to be skillful enough , please pay a visit to  Jetdroid Group

**Omnia II which shares almost similiar hardware as Jet, already has been successfully ported an Android OS onto it. But it was slow and some hardwares were not usable.

    Hi, i have a Samsung Corby, can it be ported with android 2.1 os? thanks for the info.

    I dont think it can, and if it does, nobody will be interested in it. As it(Corby) doesnt has hardware good enough for an android os.

    Not too sure about it. Some one needed to start this project of porting Samsung Wave 525 to Android. It is possible if it has sd-card. Process is more or less similiar with Samsung Jet but requires different drivers.
