nintendo switch

Not only smartphones, portable gaming consoles (handhelds) made by Nintendo, the Nintendo Switch can now be made running the Android operating system (OS).

This can be realized thanks to the trial of installing the Android OS by a developer group called “switchroot” on the XDADevelopers gadget site. Since some time ago, the switchroot is known to be focusing on working on the Android OS that can be run on a Nintendo Switch device.

This OS itself is worked on by a switchroot based on a custom Android ROM, Lineage OS version 15.1, which was originally designed specifically for Nvidia Shield TV devices.

So, how to install it? Installing the Android OS on the Nintendo Switch is actually not as difficult as one might think. You only need a Switch device whose security system has been broken down and has a “Hekate” version of the bootloader.

In addition, you also need an SD card and software to copy custom ROM files to the memory card. When all the requirements are met, you can then copy the custom ROM file and enter the Hekate bootloader. After that, you just have to install the Android OS that was copied to the memory card, along with the Google application (GApps), through the TWRP custom recovery interface.

Well, for those of you who are interested in installing an Android OS on a Switch device, please visit the following link to see the steps. On that site, also features that can be used and features that don’t work when you inject the Android OS into your Switch device.

This Nintendo Switch Android OS is not official

It should be noted, this Android OS is not official from Nintendo. That is, whatever is done and happens to your Switch device is your full responsibility. Although it can be installed and running on the Nintendo Switch device, there are several “bugs” or errors that accompany the Android OS that is installed on this Switch device.

Some of them are charging indicators that don’t work, decreased battery life, malfunctioning automatic rotation, WiFi connectivity which is often “disconnected”, and so on.

Apart from that, a number of other important features are called being able to function normally without any obstacles. Handheld and dock modes, for example, can run as they should.

Then, the Joycon controller, which is on the right and left side of the screen, also functions normally through Bluetooth connectivity, as summarized by KompasTekno from XDADevelopers, Tuesday (07/30/2019).
