I have bought this Motorola Moto E (2015) motxt1528bfpp Android smartphone over the last BlackFriday 2015. I did a search through this forum and did not find any mentions about this device. I wonder if ARM OpenSuSE will run on this smartphone. I just want to use it as a Linux WiFi device sans any 3G/4G connections. Anyone?
I am using a Moto E (LTE version).
Just want to use it as a WiFi device?
- Do not install the SIM card;
- Turn on “Airplane Mode”; and
- Go to this thread:
See you there.
Pardon me. Perhaps, I was not being clear. I want to replace my Motorola Moto E (2015) motxt1528bfpp Android smartphone OS with a Linux OS and wonder if ARM OpenSuSE can run on mine.
… well, Android is a Linux OS.
The open source version is – as mentioned in the thread I directed you to, if you would have followed that thread through – CyanogenMod https://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Main_Page
I did a search through this forum and did not find any mentions about this device.
So, I mentioned it, and directed you to a thread that details some of the adventures on it and similar devices.
and you said:
I just want to use it as a Linux WiFi device sans any 3G/4G connections. Anyone?
… a direct question which I also answered, and additionally showed you that you do not need to install a different OS to achieve this – although you certainly can, if you wish. Just remember that any warranty will then be void, if you do.
and wonder if ARM OpenSuSE can run on mine.
Try it and see.
OK. Let me make i more clear and forget what I said before. I want to replace the Android OS on my Moto E smartphone with a Linux OS. Does ARM OpenSuSE support this platform?
… as I suggested, why not try it and find out?
I am curious about that, as well, but currently my explorations are going in a different direction.
So, give it a try (you do feel brave, don’t you?), then post back and let us know how you make out. It would be great if you post the results of your quest in that other thread, though, so it can be added to the list of connectivity methods.
