This is really going to be cool when they finally get all the bugs worked out. Can't wait for that to happen.

Word.. So far this version is pretty unstable, but I will look at running other versions on this kernel tomorrow.. Play store never finish downloading, rotation issue, etc etc.

If I get a more stable version working I will post it for sure :)

I think the problem with downloading via the Play Store is that it doesn't know what the phone/tablet is. I've updated mine as another device, and it still doesn't work.

I'm not sure what checks the store does though. The device I'm using isn't x86, so that could still be an issue.

Yeah, will have to spoof the device to know for sure.. Will update tomorrow and see where it goes

It's because it's obviously running x86 so most apps won't be compatible as they are made for ARM.


Once again... this is not the problem, My phone is the XT890 (RAZRi intel atom x86) and every app works, the ones that haven't worked are chaos rings 1 and 2 from square enix and that has to do with the fact that the graphics acceleration isn't compatible at all)

While you are waiting for Google, you may want to check out the Jar of Beans VM. It's really fast. :)
