Hey guys. This is a relief!

I want to make it clear that we are aiming for much more than Android apps running natively on x86_64.

Those who have followed us for a while know the deal.

For those new or if you happen to be passing through...

This project is all about innovation and bringing something new. A platform in which the desktop becomes very relevant. I have said it so many times how Android lacks the parent system.

Windows covers all devices. Apple has their parent OS and covers all devices (even though Apple chooses to have a separate OS for Mobile, it all fits) and now we have Canonical entering the game with Ubuntu and Ubuntu touch. Don't sleep on Canonical either, Android was pretty bad at first too. Canonical is making moves that have certainly caught my attention with snaps! Unity 8 and Mir will make Ubuntu a polished all around eco-system. For the first time Android will have an open source competitor. I love Ubuntu! I love Android more though.

Google does have the Chrome book and it seems as though they are going to integrate Android into Chrome OS. It has yet to happen officially and Google has yet to explain. This does not make me nervous. Even if Android and Chrome meet, I, and those who have signed the non-disclosure agreement who know what is planned on the hardware side of things all agree on one thing...

For one, our Operating system which is designed for the Android platform is more than a beautiful UI. The UX, Userland and the way our OS functions is true innovation.

When I said I am about Innovation, I meant serious innovation.

The hardware/device design might as well be considered an invention. We are not worried at all as no OEM sees this coming. The design just happened, we were not even planning on designing a device concept... The features and different ways the user can interact with our OS inspired the idea behind the device.

Don't worry... The device is something we would like to introduce down the road, right now it would be unrealistic.

Bottom line: Our OS will work fine with traditional mouse and keyboard. For best experience, users will want to root and install a custom ROM on their Android phone or tablet. Users may wish to use an old Android handset to test things out and If they fall in love then proceed to main device to enjoy one of the features which brings a special kind of integration and luxury for the user.

Hopefully our Dream of this OS getting the recognition it will certainly deserve happens and we can release the hardware designed around this OS. PC and Laptop variants. Our design will show how the devices in the article below are merely PCs with creative features and slick design but not true innovation.

I fear the world forgot what real innovation is...

The odds of this project turning Nexogen into a tech giant that influences the tech industry are very slim.

My point is... We rely on a few major tech giants and many are mistaking features with innovation.

Virtual reality is not innovation, everyone already knows what virtual reality is. Adding VR to Android is an awesome feature.

Innovation is bringing something to the table that was non-existent. It is an invention, it is a game changer! It doesn't exist on another product, it is the first of its kind. The author of the article mentions how the new has to be forced on people... This is not the case if the product is actual innovation... The masses were not forced to use the iPod or the Smart phone besides our Mom.

People flocked to these products. They wanted these products because they started the next generation for the respective technology. These products all shared the same quality... They made people's lives easier... It was a true luxury and everyone knew the value. The iPod did not need to be sold. People already knew they wanted it.

That is innovation.

Our project is innovation. It has never been done.

With that being said. This project just took shape and we could not ignore what we were coming up with. We know many are upset about the wait. This project became something that is just going to take time.

If you are thinking that it might never happen, I can tell you this... We are going to see that this happens! We have been on this for 4 yrs now.
Also, you just don't abandon a project like this... It would be a horrible mistake.

The one thing I have been battling with recently is I know what we have here. If we compile and release alpha it will be just a shell of the OS and we lose the awe factor. It could destroy the project before we complete it.

I wrote this so our supporters know we are very serious. I promise we will never abandon this project and this is well worth the wait.

We are 75% finished so we will be done sooner than you know.

Just know that I understand innovation and I'm bringing it hard!!!... We... Are bringing it hard!!!

Thank you everyone for being patient. I won't let you down.


In a single week, three of the industry's biggest companies dragged users kicking and screaming into a better future.

Simple question complex answer. My answer to anyone who has ever asked about why we are different

-This is not an Android port and our goal is not to run Android apps on the desktop.

-Our goal is to create a more powerful Android experience as a full fledged Linux distribution for x86_64 Architecture

-Android was built for ARM as a mobile based Operating system and uses a smaller bionic C library

-Since Android was built for the mobile SoC Architecture. Android is written for direct manipulation via touch interface.

-I personally spent a couple of years mapping our build. Jason the co-owner and head of design and I made slow and calculated changes.

-This is why we will succeed where everyone else failed... Skyhook (our Android on desktop) is completely re-designed from the kernel to the UI/UX

-Many have challenged/trolled... All unqualified to do so. Polished well written software for platforms can take years. This is an operating system.

-The best operating systems were born from existing systems. These are also the most difficult to build. Linus Torvalds took up the Linux kernel as a hobby. We all know what Bill Gates did in building Windows.

-"Skyhook" (our Android operating system) is like the parent OS Android never had.

-Many other attempts have been made and some work ok but none have been a success. They all missed that cliché
"outside the box" vision.

-It takes a vision, it takes much more than just the idea. That is how so many have failed. This is why we will succeed.

-We are different because we are taking it further. Google is very good at what they do. When Google takes Android and places it on a particular device we do not see a port of Android to a device. Google creates a new branch and forms Android to the particular device I.e. Watch - a companion device for Android.

-Our project has no threat. Google took Android and came out with Android auto, Android on smart devices etc. Google came out with the Chromebook and these Chromebooks will run Android apps and the Chromebook is heading towards 2-1 with removable display. Google is not bringing Android apps to the Chromebook and leaving it as is. One thing I can promise... Google has no plans or desire to bring Android outside the mobile scope.

-I do not come to such conclusions out of no where. Since the start of this project, every time I heard "Android on desktop, netbook, laptop, chrome with ARC run-time, Chromebook, Linux distro with Android apps, Project Andromium" etc. I would see for myself and draw my conclusions based on my own experience and research.

-To sum it all up... Chrome OS is really in need of more. Android integration is definitely the answer. Google is definitely keeping things light on the Android side of things.

-Our project remains viable because Chromebooks are weak hardware and the way Google plans to integrate Android is through a runtime baked into Chrome OS. Google is not optimizing Android for the desktop environment. When Android apps on Chrome OS come out of beta, the best users will get is a mediocre UI experience while using an Android app. I will say, Using Android on a Chromebook is a much better experience than x86 and certain Linux projects that I respectfully won't name.

-Our project still remains viable even if Google significantly improved Android app behavior from within Chrome OS.

-Skyhook, is expanding Android on so many levels. My best argument for Skyhook over a Chromebook with full Android support... Gaming? Audio engineer? Graphic design? Multi-screen setup? Power user?... The Chromebook was also meant as a mobile on the go device. Why we remain viable... Because no one said "I use the Acer14 Chromebook as my production machine"... The Chromebook Pixel is a powerful beast besides 64gb SSD, and is a clear indication that Chrome OS is the main focus for the Chromebook. The Pixel may pack a serious punch but no other Chromebook even comes close. This is a strong indicater of Google' plans.

- We know Google has no extreme plans for Android outside the mobile and companion spectrum.
Many hoped Google would create a powerful Android based system, but every attempt so far has been so bad that Google was smart to go a different angle with Chrome OS and giving the Chromebook Pixel the CPU to run Chrome apps recklessly without a hiccup.

-For now, I personally do not find any use for the Chromebook and Android apps on Chrome OS are just "OK". I used my Acer14 for less than a week and returned it with disappointment.

-We will continue to move forward with Skyhook, the first time Android is built for every single aspect of the x86_64 Architecture from UI/UX to harnessing the more powerful chipset. It's also time for a change when it comes to the desktop userland. As the watch is a companion device to Android handsets. The Android handsets and tablets will be companion devices to the full version of Android.

-Nexogen Skyhook

Below is the Chromebook that I returned... I left with the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1... Much better. Forgot why I love Android tablets so much.

I would like to just put this out there... We are trying our best to make this happen. We are working on this on our own time and we are doing this so you can eventually enjoy our idea of something great for free. It is pretty ignorant when people leave negative comments about our progress or tell us what we should have by now. No legitimate operating system was built quickly. This is beyond complex on so many levels. Even understanding the license agreements for open source libraries. There is just so much. We are not here to release Nintendo Hackware OS... This isn't some quick cheap port or workaround. Any negative or ignorant comments and you are not welcome in the community... We don't want that negative unappreciative vibe around here. We would love feedback, help and support from our members. We can't wait to give you guys something your going to really enjoy. That is why im doing this. I want to see you all get to experience our vision and have something great for free. We don't have to do this... We appreciate those who respect what actually goes into something like this. Thank you to those who have been patient and leave positive feedback. This project is mostly for you!

I just want to point something out to those who have been so hard on us about how long our project is taking.

Read this article and maybe you will comprehend.

Like Canonical and their work on MIR and Unity 8 which has brought criticism from non-engineers alike. We have a project of extreme complexity.

They say Canonical has a small team well we have even smaller.

I still stick with my point... This operating system is no cookie cutter workaround delight! It is a legit full blown OS that is going to be a work of visual and engineering art. It is going to be done right!

We have watched these other projects release copy cat after copy cat and none of them are worth my hard drive space.

We are not going to release an operating system that makes a bleep on the radar and then say "We did it!" And he world goes... Meh...

No! We put years into this and it's going to come out right!

Read this article my nay sayers as this Author completely understands what this is! We don't have an engineering team like Oracle either!

I applaud this man's ability to point out the reality of a project of such magnitude. Unity 8 and Mir doesn't even begin to come close to the likes of what we are working on either.

So thank you to those who have always had the IQ to understand good things take time. For those who have difficulty understanding... Well... This article couldn't explain it better... If you still have an issue go install Andromium on the play store or Remix OS...

Doesn't matter... Once we release our Operating system "Skyhook"... Everyone is going to dump their Android on the desktop illusions and install our legitimate operating system anyways. Let's face it... The smart ones are probably relieved such a project exists... They know it is going to take serious time for serious work.

We are not like the others... Appeared way after us and released way before us... If that wasn't questionable right from the start then I don't know...

Great article ahead...

I have to stop this conversation. Not sure if you are just catching recreation on me but I am a very busy person and you are coming on my community (I am the build architect/software engineer) I am highly educated in architectures. Learned hardware first and went on to master binary. Then onto system software stack architecture.

Let me make it clear... That is a quick bio. I started at age 4. For the next 16 years I would spend anywhere from 1-6 hours a day (except Sundays)
with my Dad who attended MIT and earned his PhD in Computer Science. Before MIT he attended the General Electric Engineering program at UMass Amherst. Altogether 12 years of Education. Worked at Raytheon writing electronic theory for missile guidance chip-sets and helped design the architecture of the first guided missile.

This man, my Dad, my hero... Put me on an Apple II > Go Figure!... Then a Mac... My Dad insisted I learned his field because he correctly predicted the tech industry.

Most importantly, I learned how to learn on my own. So I could take anything on and keep up.

Most Developers do not know the ins and outs of Hardware! This was driven in my head as the biggest mistake one could make. You are nothing more than a coder if you do not know how the Hardware, Architecture, and how everything works together.

My recent major studies have been SoC Embedded Architecture for Mobile devices. From Qualcomm to Exynos, Rockchip, Allwinner, A10 etc.

OK so im going to wrap this up... This is a huge waste of time, I cant believe im allowing you to drag me into such a debate... No offense but I know im right... I have wasted valuable time as you certainly do not want to take the information I gave you. Instead you took a couple jabs at me and then proceeded to post some wildly incorrect statements regarding Android.

I must disengage... I almost believe you are messing with me and I have had others in the past rail me in on stuff like this and it is incredibly wrong...

For everyone who may not know... I do not get much sleep and I have fallen behind and lost many hours of sleep on this particular conversation.

That last post could not go untreated!... so here I am again even though I know I am right and I know it isnt even worth it as the complex information needed to properly explain why even a Mid-Range Android handset (not all) but say my Moto G4 Plus for instance...

(Screw it I am going to end this simple because I know I am right and educated engineers will know I am correct)

Moto G4 Plus, I am pretty sure it did not hit a top ten benchmark score... It may have on some random category but I do not believe so.

Quickly... Because I am done after this crap...

Benchmarking is very complex and writers, bloggers and users have no business placing benchmark charts or bar graphs with rankings and their analysis... "such and such scores better than such and such in every category" is a lie... The best Engineers find benchmarking extraordinarily difficult because of several factors. Samsung will find a benchmark that shows their product is the most efficient, Apple will do the same... There is no two benchmarking software that will show the same results.

Almost all benchmarks focus on raw hardware speed/performance. They either neglect or cannot properly measure a devices hardware performance AND the software integrity, basically the operating systems ability to execute the many operations and activities such as, memory allocation, processor thread handling, application execution and background processes.

Now back to my Moto G4 Plus. Only real-world use can distinguish the better device. I know by using my Moto G4 with Android 6.0 that this mid-range device flies! lag free. The CPU and GPU are mid-range for Android. The Android OS has a lot to do with the speed and the phones ability to handle multiple and heavy processes without issue. Remember when I said Android surpassed iOS with Lollipop? It was more than just looks... The major upgrade was the new ART-Runtime with AOT (Ahead of time compilation) Now I will be receiving Android 7.0 within a month. Things will be getting faster... With the new implementation of C/C++ within Android apps that are performance driven like games, photo editing, And the new Multi-Window support. Just the fact that Android can multi-task and iOS is a joke when it comes to that.

Now to drive the nail in the coffin... Apple and their marketing web of lies and this is how benchmarks are not to be trusted. The A10 can only handle ONE... I SAID ONE core at a time! it is considered a 2-core chip... Im Running 8-Cores on my Moto g4.
Do you know how much performance is lost when the A10 is actually running iOS, an iPhone owner just using the device in the real world would not know any better because Apple users are used to it... But let me put a Flagship Android device in an iPhone users hands and if they are honest, they will notice something right away... "This Pixel" or This "One plus 3" is so fluid!... they will notice the instant loading of an app... Tap Boom opened... Then to their surprise they click on the square at the bottom right and see that 21 apps are minimized and running in the background... the sophisticated Android OS can do that without losing performance because Android stops the processes that are not needed until opened back up. like a legit OS should do, a user should be able to minimize facebook to google something and then go back to facebook when done. Then the actual widgets... not the jokes iOS call widgets. Like I said... iOS is not a legit os.

iOS is not a full operating system. it is "Unix-like" and the Kernel is a joke... it is monolithic/micro hybrid kernel. That is the double nail in the coffin as this kernel type is not capable of fluid experience. these are all facts! iOS apps cannot even share processes. meanwhile back to Android, We are using our phones like a handheld computer, using our directory... being able to use multiple apps at the same time if you need to be productive on the fly.. Android has won this battle. The iPhone has nothing to offer an adult in my opinion.

I think I covered everything. I dont expect you to read all of this... and if you do... I expect you to continue to ignore the facts and deliver comments I have a hard time believing you actually believe what your saying. So this will be my last response as I am satisfied... I destroyed the notion that Apple makes the best smartphone or even a good one at that.

Not on my community!...

I can go much deeper. I qualified, those who know me can vouch for me as well. Any intelligent individual will understand the above info and also understand when someone happens to be more advanced on a subject. You strike me as intelligent and this is why I feel insulted to be messed with like this. I am not going to hold back on my own community and not handle situations where someone challenges me.

Do me a favor... I returned to school to brush up on some new things and I need my sleep bro. You do Not have to agree and If you dont you are welcome to comment on why you like iPhone... Just please refrain from false information on my Android based community. That is all I ask....

P.S. Guys... This is why I became mute on this community for so long and even refrained from updating anyone with any info at all... its stuff like this. I just wasted all the free time I had today.

Yeah... im out for a while again... This crap is just too much right now!...

Hello guys! We are looking for help! You do not have to be a genius nor do you have to know everything.

Anyone with Windowing system/ Window manager + GUI knowledge and experience. Middleware, JVM. Libraries such as libhybris. Knowledge of dependency trees.

If you are familiar with and capable of any of the above we want you to come aboard.

We also could use someone to work with Jason our UI/UX senior designer/project founder and owner.

We do not expect anyone to be a genius and I promise I help all team members in every area they need. I am willing to tutor and help the right individuals learn and expand their skill set.

Many previous team members can attest to this. Unlike the past we are in position to compile the build and get it into the hands of testers. The more we have helping the faster we can accomplish this.

Hey guys! There has to be a few talented low level engineers who can give us a hand. We are looking for a few individuals who know their C/C++/Assembly. If you are good with your low-level coding skills inbox or message myself or Jason.

Full guidance will be available. As the build architect I can assure anyone who volunteers that they will have complete detailed instruction on what is needed and I am always there to answer questions about the build and provide guidance.

If you love to code and are looking to get involved with a project like this we would love to add you in. Lastly, I can assure anyone that it will be worth their while!

I would like to add one important note... In my experience with this project many have been interested in being on the team but would comment on how they had no idea how to build an operating system or shy away for similar fears. We are not looking nor asking for all that. We simply seek those who can help with the build.

IF you are C/C++/Assembly that will get you in.

Other talents and/or area of expertise we are seeking:

Intel/AMD ISA
Bash
Custom ROM/Image manipulation
Custom Kernel
Binary/Binary Blobs
Linux Toolchain

If you are a capable person and happen to be interested I can assure you that you will not be wasting time. Years have been spent on this. We are far beyond "How would this work" It is ready. It is time

The message below was quickly written and unedited. Apologies for the lack of proper punctuation.

Below is message to the community. Even though I am just coming back to finish what was started I feel I need to explain and clarify a few things. The community has always been checked on by myself and there were many comments and misconceptions about the project. So I just want to address some things in this post so those who are new or those who may have forgotten what the project is actually about may better understand...

For those waiting on this project. Thank you for your patience! I promise I will build it myself if I have to but in reality, the more qualified people we have working on this project the faster we will have this operating system in the hands of everyone!

... Many of you know how long Jason and myself have been slaving away at this... This project has been around for a long time and we have had many team members come and go. We have had major setbacks and this project almost fizzled out due to personal situations. What I am getting at... There is a very good reason why we are still here and still working. Personally, I just could not let the project die especially after the countless hours spent planning and mapping out a system like this. Simply put... We happen to still be here because we have a game changer. That one project that changes everything... For years we have watched Microsoft and Apple dictate how the world computes. Steve Jobs may have founded the company I hate with everything but I respect the hell out of everything he did and his approach... Apple took off because the product was different. Steve Jobs changed the way the world would use computers. On this very day the desktop is far more powerful and the operating systems have become much more polished and useful. Then we have the Mobile devices, smartphone, tablet... iOS, Android are a huge addition to our tech lives and make for excellent companion devices. Most go about their lives using the products put out by OEMs and most would agree if I told them that technology has come a long way... it has... Just one thing... It has been some time since the last big innovation. When I say big I mean BIG... We have our smart tvs, media players, usb dongles... We have so many products and consumers are happy. Basically, we have spent years on something much bigger... We have to make it happen! I know we have something that is going to change everything, I know that we are a very small entity, I know that odds are stacked against us, I know once we release and have a polished product, our vision is going to change everything whether it be us or a major company, it will happen. This is why we will not walk away or give up... We know what we have and we know it fills the holes this industry fails to fill, and the consumer is blind to. What we have is the best way until comes along a better way. Allow me to clarify one thing... We are indeed working on an operating system, Android is the target platform but this project is not just about a nice looking operating system that runs android apps on a desktop... speaking for myself, if that was the basis to this project I guarantee everyone that I would have moved on with my life a long time ago... It would have already been released as well... We would have a nice Linux distro that could run Android apps and im sure people would have been very happy with that. So I hope I clear things up over why this project has been taking so long, why Chrome running Android apps means nothing to me, why Remix OS is NOT a competitor or any other OS that has to do with Android or Android running on a desktop. With that all being said, I hope many of you understand what we are reaching for. Something like this does take time, and the time Jason and myself have invested and plan to further invest is on something we strongly believe in. We look to bring on some new people who can really contribute. I want to roll something out asap and we could use some talent to speed things up.

As of today, this project has officially started again. I prefer not to answer questions regarding the stall and major delay of the project.

Today I am grateful as ever to begin working on this again as this project was so close to hitting the vaporware junk yard.

Today I am very grateful to be healthy again and to have the many things I've lost back in my life so I can work on such a project...

Today is a beautiful day!

I would like to share with you some of the changes that have been made. Many have put their hard work and time into this project and I am very grateful for their work and most are welcome back. Moving forward, this project has consisted of a team in which all members worked from different locations. In order for this project to realistically find its release I have recruited a few engineers locally who I will be able to physically sit and work with. That being said, still, anyone with the proper skill set may join the team regardless of location, I am just letting everyone know of my efforts to seek local talent and feel it will make a big impact.

The other important change consists of the overall approach. There will be concerted effort to release 'something' for our members to play with as soon as possible. A huge mistake of mine was too much perfectionism. We can gain much more with user feedback. As long as everyone understands that with any alpha/beta even 1.0 release it's usually going to be rough around the edges. Ok let's be real, it's going to suck a little at first but we will grow together.

So with that I have to get to work. I will try to answer some questions today at a later time.

Thank you.

Hey team, just wanted to pop in and say that I saw Remix OS, and I see people posting about it, and I thought of your project again. I'm going to use Remix OS as I'm able, but I'm rooting for you guys. Hang in there and don't give up. You guys have an awesome dream and vision for implementing it. Anyway, keep up the good work.
