    TWITTER FEEDS FOR DEVELOPMENT PROGRESS!!!

    I bring you good tidings and gifts of feeds. Look up @Hexxeh for updates on his progress with OpeniBoot and the Android OS. Theres like 2 other people with feeds, but none of them really do the iPad Android version.

    NO new developments, and Hexxeh hasn't made it clear when the exact launch date is, just this fall

    Not a good point. We are in the hackingvsection. Don't ruin the discussion with "sell the iPad and buy an android"' comment.
    Not to mention that with Android I would be running a DLNA server, which renders the HDMI port meaningless, a SAMBA server, which renders the USB port meaningless and I would have the same amount of storage as my phone right now at 16gb so expandability would be less of an issue. The ram will hurt, pretty badly actually, jesus Apple you couldn't spare another $.25 worth of ram to up it to 512MB at least??


    Least of all, it will be very intersting just to see how the hardware in the iPad can run Android. Android is a more demanding OS than iOS, because it simply does a lot more. The Applications on iPad I would assume are more demanding than similar ones on Android however, and they seem to run plenty smoothly, so unless it is just some CRAZY optimization Apple did to make them so smooth, Android should run fairly decently.
    A DLNA server would not allow me to stream videos from my tablet to our TV at work for those long weekend night shifts or our TV in the bedroom which isn't connected to the network. But an HDMI port would allow that very thing.

    USB ports work for much more than simple data storage, but if that's all you would use it for, fine.

    A little bump? You realise this thread was over 16 months old, right?

    The answer is no. It's not possible to boot any version of Android on the iPad2 and likely never will be.

    That would be nice.
    I actually bought an android phone, (that's what I am typing this on) because my ipad is just getting too old.
    Android is very nice. I don't understand why it gets so much hate.

    I love Google and Apple both, but for different reasons.

    i have had an android phone for about an year and had an android tablet (asus eeepad transformer) but it had some disfunctionality so i sended it back and got my money back and then bought my ipad.

    the ipad is great and all with the apps, but i really miss to have regular phone games to give great quality on an 720p screen, but ipad only gives bad graphics when you zoom the apps.

    and the biggest feature i really miss is the file manager and be able to download files to be auto shown in the image app and easy to find in the file manager.

    Sent from my iPad 2 wifi 32gb (jailbreaked) using iPF
