Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Marmo is a very open platform and as you all know is Linux based. Because of being linux based it has a very high developer base. These developers alwasys try to create something new and this time they’ve made an Android to Dual boot with the existing Maemo on the N900.

Marmo boots off normally via the Internal storage whereas Android will boot off a Memory card.

Currently only a proof of concept is available. Check the video below :

The process is still a Proof of Concept and is no where near working. But that should change soon with the tremendous support the Maeomo Community gathers. More and more people will start contributing and the process will be faster. It won’t be long till u see Androind running smoothly on the N900.
