Andromnia is a project whose goal is to port the Linux kernel and Android operating system to the Samsung Omnia. The following phones are supported:
- Samsung i900 (GSM, supported worldwide)
- Samsung i910 (CDMA, used by Verizon in the US)
- Samsung i780 (Mirage)
- Samsung i907 (AT&T Epix)
Check out the screenshots page to see what it looks like in action.
Right now, the project is still in the pre-alpha stages, which means that it's not ready for the general public. If you know what you're doing, you can download the latest (incomplete and possibly unstable) release using the button to the right. For further instructions, visit this wiki page.
The way the project's set up now, Android will run off of the SD card and cause no change whatsoever to your phone, unless you tell Android to do so.
For help on specific subjects, please check the wiki pages. If you can't find help with your problems on the wiki, use the forums, or if you prefer live support/chat, join us on IRC, server irc.freenode.net, channel #andromnia.

Sorry to say, but the answer is probably no. Even if I did finish this port, It'll still be hilariously outdated. This is a phone that was released 4 years ago!
All the other developers have left years ago. I'm the only person who (occasionally) maintains the site.
Besides, I don't really have the experience to do this project, I'm sorry to say. I don't know much about disassembling Windows Mobile drivers, or making Linux drivers, or the internals of the Linux kernel or how Android interfaces with the Linux kernel.
You should really get a newer phone. The Galaxy Nexus is quite a nice phone. I have one! :)
