Noisedroid is an Android build for the HTC G1 ("Googlephone").

Status

2009-02-17 After a weekend of hacking, the upstream sources build and can be installed (shot 1, shot 2) on a commodity G1 rooted with the engineering bootloader. GL-ES is done in software instead of using hardware acceleration, so the UI is pretty unusable. The Bluetooth and wifi drivers are missing.

Goals

  • Android built using best available free software.
  • Reproducible, documented, build processes.
  • Make it easy to use your own IMAP, XMPP, calendar, and other servers, using encrypted network protocols whenever possible, as first-class citizens in the Android environment.
  • Tor mode for anonymized networking.
  • Easy tethering over USB, Bluetooth, and wifi.
  • Easy access to language interpreters.
  • Documenting Android and working with the G1 for non-Google non-Android free software hackers.
