How can I install Google's Android OS on an x86 platform?
Are there any prerequisites for doing this?
Hilariously, there actually is a project for porting Android to the x86, currently on v1.6r2.
UI behaves a lot like the droid, browser responds to kinetic scrolling. I haven't tried turning my CPU sideways to see if it auto flips the screen though...
They claim it even supports NTFS partitions and dual booting.
I am fairly sure that this is not really all that possible at the moment. It was written for a different chipset, ARM processors, not x86, so you would need the source and to compile it. Any parts of the kernel that are in assembly, if there are any, would have to be rewritten.
The SDK does come with a good emulator. Maybe that is what you mean when you mention install it.
