Or an Android tablet that can boot Chrome OS when docked, whatever way you want to call it. Looks like those rumors are more than rumors.
Jacob Gwiazdzinski (I like the introduction, Jacob!) has shared this interesting find from Chromium code:
The code above talks about adding Android boot properties to a Chrome OS board named Ryu. Here is some text from the commit:
boot: add android boot properties to device tree
Pass in the serial number and hardware name to Android
via the device tree. Android expects a “/firmware/android”
node in the device tree with a compatible property set to
“android,firmware”. Other properties will be assigned to
ro.boot.PROPERTYNAME by the init process.
Well, I had to do some Googling to find out about this fastboot. Turns out it is a small tool that comes with the Android SDK (software developer kit) that can be used to re-flash partitions on your device. It is an alternative to the recovery mode for doing installations and updates.
Does that make you more hopeful?
Let me know do you guys think!
