Title: Flashing Rockbox as a firmware on android devices
Post by: TheComrade2 on January 19, 2020, 07:28:43 AM
My idea is to flash Rockbox as a firmware with TWRP ect. on Android devices.
Because on almost every android device you can install a custom recovery with which, you could flash rockbox easily.
So you could use every andoid phone better as a mp3-player ,because the Rockbox is lighter than the stock firmware on the devices which means that the devices will boot up faster and work more smoothly.
That couldt turn a useless old phone into a good mp3-player. Maybe it would also increase the battery life on the device.

I hope it is a good and useful idea

You could port to any of these bigger arm devices, but it's really hard because they're so complicated.
