Done. No great interest in android - it won't run better than my tegra note - but the site is great so just as a show of support.

It shouldn't be completely impossible however!!!

It's not as elegant as a BIOS trick, but they got it working on the DV8P: You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register

If you're desperate for android, there's an extremely (and I mean EXTREMELY!) limited version here: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=445 It's a proof on concept more than anything else.

It's a Live USB at the minute, but it won't be too hard to shift it to the built in storage. But once again, it's very limited and nothing really works. I never really wanted to give Android a go, but if enough people are interested I might start playing with it.
