    Android on the switch was bound to happen eventually.
    I'll be making a tutorial, just like i did with the Linux installation guide as soon as this releases.

    By the way people, the first release won’t have lp0, just the normal s2idle. What this means is that no deal sleep so it won’t have the same battery life as horizon.
    Also, it won’t have reboot to payload (as this is still a beta! :) )

    So many emulators to try and test out and configure, too little time! :(

    heh...nice timing...sort of. :P

    I've got a nvidia shield tablet. Downright awesome device (I'd say "best tablet I ever had", but that's not saying as much)...but it got a crack on the screen about a week ago*. It would be nice to replace my tablet with a tablet that almost accidentally happens to double as a nintendo game console. :creep:




    *for clarity sake: I've used this thing on a daily basis for at least the last two years now (I have it for about four years now. Not since release, but not that long after that). Considering it daily commutes with me, the crack isn't as much saying as much of either build quality or my negligence, but rather a "the law of large numbers".

    That I can't give you a definitive answer on.
    Besides written guides are much better af if you want to re-read some instructions you don't have to pause/play anything over and over.

    I am looking forward mostly to run PS4 Remote Play and either OSRS through the mobile app or most likely through a VPS (because 3rd party clients>Vanilla client every time).

    Really ? Why ? I would.. I used them on Samsung Smartphone (Wifi only) and absolutely loved it. I have an iPhone (Verizon) but I want to use it for home only. I want Kodi and other on it so I can use it on my big screen instead of buying Nividia Shield TV.

    Because I have half a dozen devices within arm's reach that already run Android natively. I don't need another buggy Android device when I can do already do everything this port will do, but without the bugs.

    I own a Shield Portable, Shield Tablet, Shield TV, an HP Touchpad with Android on it, and a Galaxy S8, so I'm not exactly missing anything if I don't use this myself.

    Good for you. I want to play my pc games on streaming in my switch, and with this android port you can do it now natively (its include geforce now app), also I have an android tablet too, but its not a videogames console, its bigger and flatter, and smartphones are not to play videogames.

    Maybe you don't find this useful, but others (like me) may find it ^_^

    ...I didn't say it wasn't useful, simply that I have no use for it. He asked me why, so I explained. As I noted in my original post, it's always nice to see Android ports to various devices.
