For those who don't know andromnia is a project by various developers across the world to bring a working port of Android to the Samsung Omnia and Mirage (Epix in the US). It's NOT a theme, app, or wallpaper, nor does it run on top of WM, but is a complete replacement for Windows Mobile.
andromnia.net is the new official homepage for the project. Come visit us sometime!

The latest version:
andromnia 0.32
Released: January 21, 2010

New in this version:
- Sound support! (loudspeaker only, and still not compatible with calls, but still, SOUND SUPPORT!!!)

Not yet supported:
- CDMA/EVDO/3G, Bluetooth, GPS, Motion Sensor, Camera (back or front), Suspend Mode (1-2 hour battery life...) or Optical Mouse.

To run this you'll need:
- An Omnia/Epix
- An unused microSD card (at least 64MB). The entire Android OS will stay on this card, and won't overwrite WM.
- Linux (either installed, via live cd, or vbox/vmware, I recommend Ubuntu)

Here's some screenshots of it running:

Yeah, there's a few graphical glitches here and there, but still, it's android. On your omnia.
Donate here ;)

ARE YOU A DEVELOPER?

Do you have experience in C, ARM assembly (and disassembly ;)), Android porting, and/or Linux drivers? ...or do you have any experience with writing Windows Mobile applications with low-level access (such as directly editing an SD card's partitions/filesystems)?

THEN WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
Come visit us on irc:
#andromnia on irc.freenode.net

Or post to our forums:
Andromnia Forums (andromnia.net/forums)

If you want to check out the old andromnia thread here on MoDaCo, check it out here.

@whiplash. Hey is there anyway to get to boot android without using linux? I know you mentioned something about Windows stripping out some files from the rootfs when extracting it? Is there anyway to compress the files like the HTC Vogue android project, where the files are just copied directly to the sd card?

hey, has anyone tried to build and run latest version from git? i tried with no sucsess - i built my own zImage, copied cupcake footfs to SD as i did with all previous versions, but it always ends up with kernel panic

and i'm no newbie, i used to download all releases from git back in summer when development was still active and had no problem running them
so..... is something changed around how droid works? or am i stupid?

My guess is that the kernel panics are caused by the rootfs being severely corrupted by shutting the phone down without unmounting over and over. Go to the forums at andromnia.net and check out my guide for kernel panics.

Does the rooting of the Droid help to get the CDMA drivers at all?

No, the Droid uses a different baseband processor (Qualcomm QSC6805). The i910 uses a Qualcomm MSM6800a as its baseband processor, while the i900 uses a Qualcomm MSM6281.

Where is the best place to get the latest info regarding the Android on Omnia? How long has it been in development? I guess my question is by the time it gets figured out, will they drop it for something newer? I really do not like the Windows Mobile. It stinks....

This is a good spot to get development news or you can go to andromnia.net. This thread replaced an older one which had gotten a little outdated. Search for the other thread to see the progress they've made and some of the other questions answered. Its been in development since sometime this summer I believe, and still being worked on. Progress is slow because there are only a few select people that are donating their time to port it to the Omnia. Its mostly a problem of programming drivers for the hardware.

A new thread was started as the original author of that thread has taken a break from the project. The other thread is still around, just not stickied anymore.

This should be interesting. Especially since Droid came out. Plus it would seem to me that the cooks for the Omnia are starting to fade due to either moving to the Droid or the stuff you can do with the current OS seems to have been maxed out...
