GreenOS - A FreeBSD based distro for android devices!
Hi all, in this mouths i've starting a porting to ARM (Tegra 3) devices,
and in particular to smartphone's and tablets.
It's based on FreeBSD 9 (but, maybe I've change to linux kernel, if i have some problems to maintenance the system).
Why I've this project? Because android sucks,
all application is running under Java Virtual Machine, and it's lose a very big piece of performance!
I've made GreenOS to replace totally Android!
It'll have a intuitive Graphic User Interface,
power-save optimization and a porting of all most famous opensource games!
I'll release the Beta version on September.

If you have some question, reply

You are saying Android sucks and telling that you may change to Linux kernel on the same parallel. Android is running a Linux kernel already.
And, what are "some problems to mainenance the system"?

Can you show us the progress till now?

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia.

FreeBSD arm is not works properly , it's need to be optimized. Android is running on a VERY modded linux kernel, some programs can't work because is too different! If i don't fix the bugs i go to linux kernel, because it have native drivers and other things... Now, with GreenOS i can boot it, but nothing else

Either give us what you have so far, or else no one here is really going to believe you.

Would interest me if I had an android device but why buy one when you can just emulate everything Pirate

Keep up the good work either way, sounds interesting.
