Just a thought... why not port a Windows Mobile Android build to PSP 2000?
I'm pretty sure it's possible, especially on the Slim. It has all the hardware that is needed, except touchscreen and full QWERTY keyboards functions, but an on-screen keyboard and a pointer via the analog stick is a definite possibility. I've messed around with Linux on three completely different Windows Mobile phones with different hardware, in fact the Slim could possibly put those phones to shame. They were the HTC Titan (Sprint Mogul), the HTC Herald (T-Mobile Wing), and the HTC Excalibur (T-Mobile Dash). All of this was done via a storage card to be safe about it and since the phones didn't have enough memory in the first place. The Excalibur didn't have a touch screen, but Android could still run on it just fine. If it's possible on these devices, then it's definitely possible on PSP Slim. What would be needed is a moddified bootloader, moddified kernel, a roofs.img, a intrid.gz, any image you want to run that would be in .img or .sqsh format, and sufficient space to run it all on the PSP, probably 512MB will do just fine since it takes up around 256 to create the data image. 64MB of ram is more than good enough, overclocking the PSP should make it perform without having to force you to close apps. Two of the phones I used have no more than 64MB of ram and run at around 200MHz, the extra 111MHz could make a big difference, if that could possibly be applied to it. My suggestion is that we take ideas and concepts from the Windows Mobile ports and apply that to the PSP and make this happen somehow. If I knew how to program, I would do it myself, but I'm afraid I don't have the experience to do so. These are all just sugestions and ideas, I really do hope this inspires developers and gives them a better idea on what to do with porting Android. If this could be done on completely different phones that have entirely different specs and hardware, then I'm sure the PSP can handle it.
Good luck coding drivers, the bootloader and kernel.
Also, you mention that it can be done on phones with "entirely different specs and hardware", but I think you'll find that the PSP is a whole other ball game....
Hmm ok, do you mean an emulator or a native Android for the PSP?
