How to install Android on Smartphone
  

Surfing the internet constantly hearing about Open Source, Linux, Android and going crazy with curiosity to try it on your Windows Mobile device? This guide will explain step by step how to install the famous operating system from Google on your WM smartphone. Android is an open source operating system based on Linux Kernel. Has multiple functions and a huge saving of resources than Windows Mobile and therefore much faster than the latter.

Given the radical diffusion in the market for this OS, there are many network applications that are specifically developed for Android and not feel any lack of Windows Mobile. However, already installed as soon as you find useful in apps including Processes Manager, Explorer, a crowded market and unbelievable but also the terminal. Linux (Root permissions are enabled phone) I leave you only imagine what you can do with a Linux terminal on a smartphone.

Contrary to popular belief, the greatest threat to Microsoft in the smartphone market is not Apple's iPhone, but our favorite system: Google Android. This OS has taken the place of Windows Mobile as a manufacturer Multi OS, HTC to Samsung. The biggest advantage of Android for the manufacturers is its price: they must pay for Windows 7 Phone, while the use of Android is free. Microsoft is well aware of this problem and has recently launched a campaign to demonstrate that Android was not worth the trouble. As part of this campaign it launched last weekend a lawsuit for wrongful use of patent against Motorola, one of the first Android smartphone manufacturers in the world.

Microsoft said that Android is not free, you must pay the patent for him. Even if Google is not part of this trial, it is easy to guess who is the real objective of this strategy, this step is interpreted as particularly desperate. In short, many high-end phones for a system that will be quite innovative in the user experience but also a brand new operating system. Microsoft chose to start from scratch, integrating Xbox Live and Zune as well as 6 hubs: Contacts (Windows Live, Twitter and Facebook), images, games, music (Zune Marketplace, FM Radio) and Video Marketplace and Office (Office, Outlook Mobile, and One Note).

How to Dual boot Windows Phone & Android

How to Dual boot Windows Phone & Android

The principle is very simple for this. For that you will need to install WP7 NAND internal memory and Android on Micro SD. But know that not all Android build mostly the older version support this.

Requirement
  • Two Micro SD cards, of which a larger like 16 GB that will be used permanently and a smaller around 8 GB that will serve to make some interim operation for temporary purpose.
  • A free partition management software such as EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition.
Dual boot Windows Phone
  • Insert the SD card in your phone and install temporary SD card in WP7
  • After running WP7 completely turn off your phone and remove the SD card;
  • Insert SD card in both PC and run EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition;
  • By EASEUS we see that the temporary card (just removed from the phone) there are 2 partitions, one FAT of 200 MB (where we will install Android, long enough to enlarge) and an "unformatted" (which is basically WP7 and must be left intact)
  • Delete any partition totally present in the other SD card that is what will become definitive in the phone
  • Copy the two partitions of the temporary card in that final, careful with these things or copy the first partition FAT of 200 MB. The must enlarge to fully use the space of the large SD (less space to leave the "unformatted") is formatted in FAT32 (by setting the fields to 64 kb);
  • After that great copy or unformatted leaving it intact in the size and type.
  • Copy the distribution of Android (of course must be designed to run from SD) card in FAT32 partition large final
  • Insert the SD in the phone finally.
  • Restart the phone by holding down the end call key until the menu part of MAGLDR. In this menu you move the volume keys and confirm with the call button.
  • Select Boot settings and OK
  • Always click on menu and OK so that every time the phone menu will appear MAGLDR to choose to launch Android or WP7.
  • Back to the home menu item get back "Services and OK
  • Then Choose Boot settings and OK.
  • Choose AD SD Dir and confirm.
  • Select the folder where Android is installed.
  • Restart the phone and be presented with the menu MAGLDR or
  • To start WP7 select WPH Boot. And to start Android select AD SD Boot.

How to install Android Emulator

Common Android Installation Guide

This is common guide which works in most of the Smartphone.
  • First you will have to partition your microSD card to run Android. To do this use the freeware MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition.
  • Download the file with the ROM Android NeopeekTeam. The procedure is the same for almost all of the ROM so far developed to be compatible with WM.
  • Unpack the downloaded file from the folder and delete the file PUT_STARTUP.TXT_HER and ts-calibration
  • Open the folder STARTUP CONFIG. Inside there are other folders with the names of some HTC devices. Explore the folder with the name of your device HTC
  • Copy and paste the file in the root folder STARTUP
  • Copy all these files in your microSD
  • Now we just have to insert the microSD card into any device with an Explorer (I used Resco Explorer but the default WM is fine). Go to the root of the microSD and open the file Haret. As you will see the installation will start immediately and follow the Wizard can perform the calibration of the screen and if you like, see the initial Android Tutorial.
  • Here it is Android on your Windows Mobile SmartPhone.
How to install Android Emulator

Mobile phone with Google's Android operating system are selling like crazy. And increasingly use mobile phone manufacturers of this system because it is free. Web page designers should therefore see immediately that their sites come across extremely well on an Android phone. This requires no real Android phone. The free Android emulator sufficient thickness. Google's free Android phone simulator has over other simulators ever a decisive factor: it functions under Windows (XP, Vista), Mac OS X and Linux. Web designers in Linux are free to do so Android is not around.


Steps

First download Google Android Emulator from the official website. Emulator Downloads available anywhere for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. They are each only about 80 MB in size and come in ZIP archives. The ZIP file is simply unpacked on a disk in a directory. That's it. A special installation is required.
  • You need a Java Virtual Machine (Java Platform), I chose to use Eclipse as development environment.
  • Download Eclipse Classic 3.5.0. Unzip the archive on your desk.
  • Download Android SDK v 1.5 r3. Unzip the archive to C: \ Android SDK
  • Now go back to the folder where it was unzipped Eclipse, run eclipse.exe. Click on Help then Install New Software then Add
  • Put in Name: Android SDK. On Location: https: / / dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse /. Press OK.
  • Check Developer Tools. Double click on Next and then Finish. Android plug-in will be installed.
  • Eclipse will now prompt you to restart the program. Click Yes. Now click the little button with the image of a PDA Android Virtual Devices Manager and follow these steps.You have now created a virtual PDA Android1 named Android 1.5. Exit Eclipse

Now open a console MsDOS. For that click on Start > Run > type cmd and type the following commands C:>
Code:
cd Android SDK 
cd Tools 
avd-emulator Android1

The Android SDK

The Android SDK

As with all Java programs can also simply use an editor to write apps, and Android SDK build tools make the man. Much easier it is with Eclipse. Google has not saved here and you get everything you need delivered directly.
The Android SDK can be downloaded from the official site in ZIP format or in TGZ file in windows format. You will get SDK Manager and some tools for debugging.

To install the SDK you have to unzip the archive and start the SDK Manager (Linux tools / android, Windows SDK Setup.exe). This provides the first start to a collection of packages that can individually accept or Reject and can deselect. Before the installation, you should remember that the SDK Manager installed in its entire current directory. It is therefore not asked for an installation folder.

You can choose from several versions starting with 1.1 SDK (API2) to 2.1 (API7) and new. Of course you can install all API versions, and later think about what you really need. I personally do not like it when installing an unnecessary amount. Therefore here are some recommendations:

API 2.X: should be selected if you always want to be the date on and know that one of the newer API needs parts.

API 1.6: It is still ongoing with Android 1.6, so you want to write an application that runs on many devices as possible, this is the best choice. During installation, the error message Failed to fetch URL come. In this case, you should see Settings - https: / / Misc the checkbox Enable Force. Then slap with the download. The SDK folder you can lie down wherever you want. On Windows, I have in C: it created a folder Android. All settings are stored in the user folder anyway.

ADT plug-in for Eclipse

Eclipse can be made do with the Android SDK start from. Therefore you need the Android Development Tools, which can be installed directly in Eclipse.
  • Install new software in the Help menu, select top right on the button Add button.
  • Location enter at the following address: https: / / dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse / and confirm with OK
  • The list is now updated and you can Android Development Tool select
  • Next Continue and ignore any warning about unsafe sources, the installation is finished, Eclipse asks whether to restart the configuration or Apply. Here it is essential to select the restart
  • Lastly, you must still tell the ADT plug-in in the SDK folder is located. To this end, open the menu Windows > Preferences and choose the option Android (on the left) from. Top right is now with the SDK folder under SDK Location, and confirmed with Apply. If everything went correctly, windows will be installed by the SDK Manager API versions in the preferences shown.
  • If everything is installed correctly, can be found in Eclipse some new Android-specific functions. The first one is the small cell phone, or in newer versions of the Android ADT icon in the toolbar, the one about the SDK and can run directly AVD Manager. Here one should first of all a Virtual Device add (the SDK Manager can also be found in the menu Window). Now all is already the first tentative steps. The virtual device can try to start them manually. It not only looks like a normal system Android, but it is. So you can do anything.

Re: How to install Android on Smartphone

There is software that allows this. She should bring her phone into her carrier and have them check to see whether such software has been installed.

No buddy, you can't install Android on Nokia 5800 Xm. The reason is only one, Android has some system requirements to work problem, which 5800 doesn't meets.

Re: How to install Android on Smartphone

I am agree with the above post that it is absolutely not possible to install the android operating system on any phone that is not configured for that. Every operating system needs some particular specifications for this and your phone should meet those aspects. If that fails to achieve those requirements then you will not able to install it on your phone. So use your original phone OS.

Re: How to install Android on Smartphone

What exactly you mean by "improve my software (nokia 5800 XM)" ? There are many applications that makes your S60v5 devices looks great and more functional. The first you should try out is SPB Shell. Its really great, am using the same on my 3 S60v5 phones and really very impressed. It makes your mobile look like HTC devices with 3 different desktops. Checkout its videos on youtube.

Can you tell us whether this mobile phone Samsung duos 7722 supports pc connection or not? If so then download its pc suite (it might be called as KIES) and install it in your pc and after that connect your mobile phone to the computer and then download java game files onto your pc and transfer it to your mobile phone and from the app manager install it from there.
