Yes anything is possible. Even with an ARM11 processor....Hey Guys,
I was wondering if now when the drivers for 2.3 are available the implementation of 3.X/4.X would be even possible on our Rena's. Just wanted to start the ball rolling for the smart people
Yea surprisingly 2.3 works on some ARM11 processors, so that should mean that you can get 4.0 on an ARM11 device, right? Actually it better have a lot of RAM and a fast ARM11 processor for everything to work right from my experience. At least decent hardware.ARM11?
ARM11 (ARMv6 architecture) is actually the predecessor to the Cortex (Armv7) family, it's like species-genus-subspecies etc with these things. Essentially the first Android devices were ARM11 and have a lot of issues, like they won't work with Flash and tend to have more issues in general because the hardware is lacking. Who cares about Flash anyway, Adobe is dropping it for HTML5... Each level of the ARM standard provides improvement via various features, like going from Pentium2 to I7 processors. Instructions change, security is different, more is added to the core and so on. It's likely the A9 family will be around much longer than anything else out there right now, because as of right now it typically has the most features. Here's a handy guide:Now for the sake of clarity, there is no arm11 processor in the rena. It's a Cortex A9 processor which is based on ARMv7. Arm11 refers to ARMv6. These are different. I do not know the specifics but I am led to believe that in addition to being faster, a Cortex cpu puts us in a much better position for seeing ICS ported/developed/hacked onto the tablet.
