In my opinion, that would just be a waste of already limited and insufficient storage space.

I'd rather have working exploits first.

i dont have any obsession with Android, it was just a question because i can remember that Nintendo wanted to work with cyanogen in the past.


Sry for my bad English.

Yes, it was to help make the Switch OS. Since they kind of burned the bridges with everyone, you kind of see how that fell out. Nvidia Shield and the Switch share similarities. But there are still somethings that are custom and need drivers to be developed to get working.

Hi,i think it could be a great option for Switch homebrew a dual boot ,i explain :

Homebrew scene today is lower than a few years old when there was only a few portable devices.
Many people prefer create app for Android,which also could send ,than on other machines (it is a shame but look vita and 3ds homebrew and how was on psp and nds)

I am no oposite about native homebrew : i think it is important,more optimized.. BUT as most know ,at last homebrew is related to piracy.

On this moment piracy would harm to Switch .I think all has its time,and now is time for Wii U ,vita and 3ds homebrew

For this if only were released a exploit which only allow double boot ,would make we could make use of emulators (one of the most demanded homebrews) and also could buy (and i know than also pirate) some great app and games for Android..

Why Switch? Because it is a great machine,it would allow portable (with controllers attached),tv and "computer mode" if usb keyboard/Mouse attached.

Umm, what are you talking about???
Disregard that, I was under the impression that the VM image was for Switch, not for modding it

I really need to stop posting when I'm barely awake

That said, I do honestly think that the chances of it happening are pretty high. Given the fact that the Switch runs a well-documented CPU that already runs Android, and that there appears to be demand from it, there will probably be someone willing to port it

Given androids open source one could absolutely port it to the switch with the appropriate permissions. Assuming executors hack works at boot one could easily load an alternate OS at boot. It wouldn't be much more complicated than porting a version of Linux to the hardware. Either way while very possible it's more likely we will see a Linux distro over android though entirely possible to happen.
