Android ICS 4.0.3 on Bealeboard

Its pretty expensive otherwise I may definitely had already put it in my NEW car 🙂 🙂  and used it for various purposes.
Yes, I am talking for the Beagle-board/bone.  Its indeed a great thing, and this particular post is just showing the Android ICS 4.0.3 running over my beagleboard-XM.

I will say Android is defintely a end-user product.  I didn`t find any of the system utilities in the distro provided by the Texas Instruments.  Guess, I have to statically recompile the filesystem and kernel again to add support for some of the utilities. 😦

Vim/Emacs/Nano: none is there in the filesystem accessed by the back-door terminal shell !!

The system took time for the first boot, but afterwards it works fine.  But the Browser is still giving hell lot of errors and hang the system when executed.  The Serial Terminal  is flooded with the lots of error messages.  It takes a few minutes to be back to normal.  So, I guess there are quite a few bugs in the Browser.

In the video,  the beagleboard`s throughput and performance is shown  when I ran the android ICS on it.

You may give a look at the video.
