Exclamation Development direction of kindle hacks on my view

I was wondering if there is any possibility to run android on our kindle device?who can tell me the Feasibility to Transplant android system to kindle device since kindle based on linux?
Is there any chance who can offer us an android system that let us to install whatever apps we want like nook touch(then We do not envy nook)?
if any hacker can offer us a system like that,i think it's easier to Develop apps for our kindle,that will benifit us a lot,thx for help

Bringing a kernel into proper shape for this is major integration work. Personally, I'm hesitant... But then I did not look into the Nook specs to tell if the platform is similar enough to start with its code base instead...

Let us know when you get your first port of Android ready to test.
I am sure there are people here that would be willing to test your work.

In general, the only work done here is what the person doing the work is interested in themselves.

Although you might be able to find someone here willing to do your custom software request(s) "for hire". Post money, see what happens.

he is saying that "maybe the hardware in the two devices is similar enough to try developing from the Nook Code base".

That means: maybe they (The Nook and the Kindle) use the same things inside to run.

so maybe it could be closer to "just working" using the other set of code. Or not.

hawhill means that he does know if the Nook Simple Touch eink tablet has similar enough hardware to make it easier to port android to the kindles by using the Nook GPL source code instead of the raw android code base.

@twobob: You beat me to the punch. Ouch!

Somehow I did not read that in your post.

But being new here, you might not know that this forum does get a lot of requests for custom software in the "do this for me" posts.
Sorry that I thought your post was another one of those "do this for me" posts.
