I don't think so, the display unit is a Galaxy Nexus, which is quite a good phone. Armv6 platform is almost dead, so I imagine no :(

It is based on the Android kernel, so I wouldn't completely rule it out. Let's just say it's really unlikely.

It's as unlikely as ICS was, let's just say that. We'll have to wait until February to see if they've included any armv6 parts as they will release the source along with the GNex image. *waits anxiously *

Lol. How did I know this thread was going to come up?

Short answer: possibly.

Long answer: razmatazz is right. ARMv7 assembly code will be key in this whole thing. Similarity to android code will also be a major point. If we can just use our ICS/JB drivers we could be sorted.

It does look pretty nice, though I'm not sure how many people would actually use it as their daily driver. Remember, it doesn't run Android apps.

I would probably leave it on mine just so I could fiddle with development and such.

I've tried FFOS. Its tricky as there's a lot of armv7 assembly code. Ff are working toward v6 compatibility.
