Recycle your Android devices for anything : run real Linux on them

Routing around the breakage of closed binary blobs

Our world is full of small powerful devices; but most of them run Android.

I'll show how Mer, SailfishOS and HADK lets us reuse them as full blown linux systems - with touchscreens, 3D graphics, modem, wifi, usb...

At the heart is libhybris - talked about at FOSDEM; found inside the Ubuntu Touch distro, invented and developed at Mer & Jolla where it's used in the Jolla phone (ARM) and soon the Jolla tablet (x86).

Together we can route around the breakage of closed binary blobs and work on FOSS on these devices.
