    Question Android as second operation system?

    Hello there,
    Can we get Android on T100 as second OS ? I know that Intel announced dualboot OS function on Intel devices, but will it be available to Bay-Trail?

    It requires a custom Firmware for the way they have it set up for the Asus Transformer Book Duet... They could offer that for Bay Trail too but Asus is more likely to offer a new model with that custom Firmware than updating a already released model...

    Though, wouldn't hurt to try asking Asus... repeatedly, and with all your friends asking the same question too... ;-P

    If there's enough demand they may do it, just a matter of convincing them of the demand... In the meantime, Bluestack works pretty well for most needs... Just check if the app(s) you want to run are compatible...

    As soon as the mod community over at XDA gets their hands on some of the firmwares, it will not take long for custom firmware to be outed for many devices. Hang tight....the ride will get pretty wild in the near future I think (and hope)

    Some recent media reports say that Intel has not yet finished Android for Bay Trail. Intel themselves seem to do nearly all the work in porting Android to X86. They also have to code certain parts of the OS to support each of their specific processors.

    Devices are often shown at CES many months before commercial release. Given that there did not seem to be a single Bay Trail Android device revealed at CES, it suggests Intel is a long way from releasing a firmware we could use.

    Yes, Intel "plans". None of those discussed devices were shown. Intel has been planning, actually Intel has been promising Android on Bay Trail for over a year.

    It's much easier to put together a dedicated Android device than the dual-boot devices discussed in that article. Dual-boot devices have to wade through a real political mine field. There's no political reason to hold back a dedicated Android Bay Trail device. If the software were even close to ready, Intel would at a minimum have shown an unbranded reference device.

    This big tell is that there didn't seem to be a single device at CES actually running Android on Bay Trail. Not one, not from Intel or from any of their customers. There wasn't even a demo device for journalists to look, but not touch. That usually means a product is still in a very raw form. Given Intel's promises to have Baytrail Android devices out this quarter, it suggests they're way behind in their Android work. If we see Android on Bay Trail, it may not be for many months.

    While unlikely, Intel may even skip Android on Bay Trail and focus on Android for Bay Trail's successor, Cherry Trail.

    Actually, they demonstrated it and the demo appeared to work with near instant switching between Windows and Android... Time table is still a question and it's likely something only the OEMs can really use but could give Intel based devices a edge in future releases...

    The system I saw doing that was running Intel's super-powerful (and power hungry) i7, not the T100's Bay Trail Atom.

    Try this out. It's not exactly a dual boot, but it is a way to get Android running on the T100TA. It will take up 8gb of hardware space. I got it to work. Just follow the directions.
