Personally, I think it would be very interesting to get Genode running 
on mobile hardware, even just on Linux as intermediate step.  I 
understand that this is not on the Genode Labs roadmap, but if the Linux 
ARM port works, it might be something the community could work on.

For anyone who is interested, the "postmarketOS" project ( ) is an attempt to run a single Linux distro 
on multiple devices by isolating all the device-specific code into a 
thin layer.  (I have not experimented with postmarketOS yet, but they 
seem to have made a lot of progress.)

After I get some more experience with the Genode build tools on smaller 
projects, I would like to give it a try.

As always, if anyone has any thoughts and/or advice, it would be greatly
