Nintendo Switch Receives Unofficial Android Build

Nintendo’s System Can Sport Android

The Japanese gaming giant is well known for being overly protective of its property and how exactly it's used, but that hasn't stopped the enthusiasts over at XDA Developers from releasing a publicly available (and highly unofficial) Android ROM for the portable console. These builds made it relatively easy for Android device owners to install variants of the operating system with different user interfaces, features and more. The console relies on Nintendo's proprietary software, which is fine if Switch owners are content to limit themselves to officially approved entertainment. Installing Android will wipe all the data stored in the process and stop list of things including deep sleep, auto rotation, screen off in dock.

Updates for this custom Android ROM will be released via flashable zip files and will need to be manually installed in the same manner.

What we are trying to say is approach this with some caution, you don't want to end up with a bricked Switch and have nowhere to turn to.

The thread explains the installation of Android ROM on the console.


"LineageOS 15.1 for Nintendo Switch by switchroot". This is the meaning of hazardous, and you most likely shouldn't attempt it on the off chance that you need to be certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that Super Smash Bros. will at present work when all is said and done.

The XDA forum likewise contains directions on how to download the OS and introduce it on the Switch.

Like the PS4 Games coming this week, not even a large number of titles are expected on Nintendo Switch.
