Video: Chromium OS ported to Nexus 7

2 years ago 21

The Nexus 7 is a very capable little device. With a little tinkering, it is capable of running MIUI, a highly customized version of Android that takes after iOS, Ubuntu, and coming soon, Chromium OS.

Android developer Hexxeh has posted a video on his blog proving that he has Chromium OS, the open source variant of Chrome OS, up and running on a Nexus 7. Apparently the build is not ready for “widespread consumption” quite yet, but once it is, it will be released.

I always get a kick out of seeing the ambitious projects Android developers take on that come to life. This is no exception. Now if only we could get Chromium and Android dual-booting on the Nexus 10. I can only imagine.
