  • Switch hacking group Switchroot will be releasing Android for the Switch in the next 5 days



    Switch hacking has gone from strength to strength, most recently we've had full blown Ubuntu, we've got retroarch, lakka and a list of homebrew so big I couldn't list it all even if I wanted to but the holy grail for lots of people is Android.




     








    As the Nintendo Switch homebrew scene continues to develop at a rapid pace, one of the biggest feats has been the possibility of running Android OS on your Nintendo Switch console. Since the system runs on the Tegra X1 chipset, which coincidentally also powers the Nvidia Shield tablet, scene developers have decided to invest their time into getting a form of Android working on the Nintendo Switch. Back in June, we got our first major tease as to just what that would mean for the community, with amazing possibilities such as watching media apps not normally available on the Switch's OS, using it as a comic reader, playing mobile games and apps, getting solid performance in emulators like DraStic, or playing games through remote play







     




    Hacking group Switchroot to the rescue, announced on Twitter the group hope to have Android out on switch within the next few days, albeit in beta form.




     








    According to the team behind the project, they're looking at hopefully releasing their first public beta within the next five days. So, as excitement and anticipation builds, make sure to go grab an extra micro SD card, as the installation will require you to dedicate the entire contents of the micro SD to the installation. You can be certain that the moment the release drops, an informative news post here will quickly follow. For now, let us know what feature you're most excited to test out by using Android on your Switch!

    I personally can't wait to try this out, the Switch is a good console but it's an amazing homebrew device and having access to a full suite of Android apps? Count me in.
