Homebrew developers Max Keller and Billy Laws spent a significant amount of time studying the Nintendo Switch's operating system and succeeded in pulling of this impressive feat, succeeding in not only installing an android build into the device but also getting it to run.
Wifi and Bluetooth use is possible on the modded device, however GPU Nvidia Tegra X1 support is still faulty. Other areas in need of some tweaking include audio function and USB problems.
An uploaded Twitter Video shows the duo scrolling through the Android menu, because when it really comes down to it, the switch is nothing but a tablet with an ARM-Processor, 4GB Storage capacity and some joy-con controllers. The Nintendo Switch is the perfect console for the Modder scene to experiment with. Hacker group "Fail0verflow" has already managed to install Linux to the device after detecting a security weak spot in the device's hardware.
