I know currently this is impossible and this is going to be a rediculacly complicated and lengthy task but i wanna do it anyway and to me it would be worth it. I was hoping that somebody could at least help me brainstorm/organize a road map for a solid project
I wanna be able to go to the google play store via raspian desktop app or kodi repositories or even emulationstation/retropie ports; and download apps for typical install and use.
I have heard of people using android apks on the rpi before but i think it was mainly to develop android apps on the rpi instead of for the rpi and im not looking for any quick or temp hacks either. I think the 2 best routes to choose from would be to either create an android emulator to virtually run the android OS (wich would be plausible but not an ideal solution) or the hardcore method of recompiling kernel, lib's, etc with scripts to run the apps in some sort of translated mirror mode however i beleive i need to learn alot more of the architecture and other fundamentals before i even continue talking about this second method.
Does anybody know of any sources or similar projects to refer to in order to begin? where to start? what would be needed for such a mission. Anything really would be helpful.
yes i do have "some" programming experience with multiple languages both high and low level as well as have a basic hardware/embedded systems understanding. hopefully thats enough to at least understand the answers replied to this post.
