[Hexxeh] is at it again, porting the chromium OS to whatever seems to appear in front of him. This time he’s ported it to the Nexus 7. Last time we saw him, he was raspberry chomping at the pi. The details are very scarce, so we would like to issue this request.
[Hexxeh] we realize you don’t think your every-day-joe would be up to the task of putting chromium on their nexus 7. This is Hackaday however, and we know that at least a few of our readers would LOVE to join you in your efforts and could possibly contribute to your fun. Share some details with us… please.
You can see a video of it in action after the break.

And Chromium on the iPad? Also very scarce on details…
well chromium for ARM has been done easily enough (in theory anyway), I see no reason why to be so skeptical
Does it run natively in place of Android or is run under a virtual machine?
I think he mentioned it replacing android
Yep, he replaced Android. It was in the comments but I had JS disabled and they were hidden. My bad.
That’s a great development anyway. Android can be a good choice for the average user with average needs, but a real native Linux OS will make these tablets fly.
I do want to share this, when I find some time to write up and upload stuff, I will.
Please be kind and respectful to help make the comments section excellent. (Comment Policy)
