    I take it this is the full version of Android? Because Android on the Switch until now had always been in a "WIP" state of affairs, what with problems with the analog sticks only being 8-way as opposed to registering the full range of motion. (Was that ever properly resolved by Switchroot themselves?)

    I wonder what became of the "why would I want android on Switch?" set. They always seemed so vocal in the older and "hypothetically what if?" threads.

    The Switch scene is on fire.

    I don't see a need myself, but it's great the option is there.

    I mean, the Shield TV is very similar hardware and it runs Android (TV). I'm sure they're not surprised.

    I think that this is perfect for Apple users who doesn't own an android that want to see what it is like. My GalaxyS10 is nearly flawless so the android on switch wouldn't work for me!

    I can't speak for the tablet build, but the TV build is almost completely comparable with any factory Android TV device, IMHO. Also, I'm not sure about the joystick thing, but I haven't noticed it working like an 8-way joystick.

    Is it now possible to run Android and Atmosphere on the same SD card?

    When you set up Android in Hekate it gives you the option to adjust partition sizes for emummc, SD card storage, Linux, and Andoid (so yes).

    This is awesome, but past Dolphin, what's a use case? Looking to get it all setup and updated again but not just "because I can" haha.

    That's what I was thinking... I'll probably give it a shoot. Thanks!

    I plan to try Genshin Impact. It's actually ironic because I tried running Genshin on a whim in Oreo and it just crashed the system and my first thought was "an update would be nice"

    I installed it and can confirm it's very smooth.
    I'm considering emulations options right now.

    Just finished my install and my god this is so much faster. Switchroot did good work here and it was well worth the wait. I'm currently installing emmuMMC to the same SD to see how that goes and if that goes well I'll probably try Genshin Impact.

    And... why do you think that’s necessary to point out? Did you actually try to install apps built for 9... on 10? And also install it without following the directions? :wtf:
