Taking Mageia to Android

Postby schultz » Oct 10th, '16, 00:07

Hey Everyone,

Well, maybe a slightly misleading title, but for those that want a Mageia inspired Android boot theme, here you go.

You'll need a rooted phone with a root browser. Before I saw more, please take all the precautions that doing anything with a rooted device requires.

To install, rename the bootanimation.zip in /system/media and place the Mageia bootanimation.zip in that directory. This may vary based on your device and or rom, please check before proceeding.

As already stated, anything involving root, just like on Linux can cause issues, so please have proper backups as I won't be offering any tech support with this :)

Hope you enjoy

No mean that Mageia branded custom boot theme can have problems,you need to root your phone and change it manually it can cause problems with phones.

That is not what he meant, but nevertheless that is currently the case - there is no Mageia Phone or Mageia for Android as of now.

No it's just a boot theme.

There is an arm build of Mageia, however, it is more for arm based computers as the hardware in phones is pretty specialised.

But I think pc will disappear in few years, only phones and servers will left. Is it not time to prepare mageia 8 for phones?

Re PC's will disappear.

I dont think so, certainly not in data centers and support roles like i do.

in Homes, well yes you may have a point there from the perspective of family who have no interest in technology itself and only want to interact with the future world.

But I really dont think PC's will disappear, as if they did , what will those android/windows/ios/anyother interact with.

remember servers are just PC's without a graphics card, and this is the area where linux is king
