Is it possible to build and run a node on an android device ?
I built and ran a node on my phone a while back using https://github.com/CypherpunkArmory/UserLAnd, just to see if it was possible. You need a powerful device of course.
Could you please explain me the steps that you followed.
It will be very helpful for my project.
as I understand it is a Linux emulator on android and after installation, run a node for Linux through it.
@Romeo I do have some notes of what worked back then:
Basically I installed Ubuntu in
UserLAnd and logged in. Using apt, I installed/upgraded git, gcc, cmake and curl (for local RPC testing). Then I cloned the Nano node git repository and installed boost using the
Then I ran cmake with
BOOST_ROOT set to
/usr/local/boost, followed by
make nano_node. Configs were generated with --generate_config node/rpc and edited to enable RPC before starting the node. I also installed VNC to be able to work with it more easily.
