The Nintendo Switch is the latest handheld console you can buy from Amazon. But there is a twist in this device. The Fusée Gelée found a vulnerability and planned to port Android to Nintendo Switch.

Key Specification of Nintendo Switch

This device powered by a Tegra X1 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

One developer by the name of ByLaws is taking the challenge of turning a Nintendo Switch into an Android tablet.

Update 1: The Switch Boots Android…Very Slowly

The Switch can now boot AOSP, though it has a very long way to go before it’s in any usable state. The developer states that the build is currently laggy because the GPU drivers aren’t working, but Wi-Fi and Bluetooth work just fine. The developer credits ByLaws for doing much of the heavy lifting in making this possible.

Developers ByLaws, langer_hans, some LineageOS developers, and other independent developers have joined forces to get a usable Android build working on the Nintendo Switch. The progress they’ve made in the last few weeks has been incredible. Just in the past 3 days, the developers have fixed Wi-Fitouch, and sound. Apps like Google Chrome and Discord work. Even games built for the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV, such as Portal, have been shown to work on the Switch with Android.
