The developers of code magic team have developed a tool by the name ‘magic-code’ that enables running arm based nativec apks on MIPS devices. The tool Magiccode helps in converting .so in apks to the MIPS code directly. It helps the users running arm apks easily. The developer team tested their tool on a number of applications and all are working perfect as per them.
Please note that only some of the arm based applications are found to be working and we cannot guarantee that all applications will work. It is been tested on ICS 4.01, 3.2 HoneyComb Knight and Ainol Novo7 Basic. So, if your smart phone has Android 3.2 Rom then you can install it in the same way as you install the other apks. After installation, you need to open the app, turn it on, wait for some time and you are ready to all go :).
This is good attempt by the developer team as it lets you buy certain smart phones which you think not to buy just because of the incapability of those devices to run some apks. Such as if you are thinking of purchasing basic then you can go for it and can predict that your phone will be able to run many HD games in the coming future.
Porting Ics on mobiles
One of the users who tried this magic-code with the chainfire 3d drivers find his phone hanged. The chainfire 3d application, when is installed, hangs the mobile device when the drivers are installed. You will not be able to boot your smartphone and you will be required for firmware update.
Please note that for Novo7 with HC 3.2, you need 20111217 HC Rom else you will get the error message of ‘operating system not supported’.
