This week Jolla has finally released their Hardware Adaptation Dev Kit (HADK) publicly to make it easier for enthusiasts/developers to port the Sailfish OS platform to new Android smart-phones.

Jolla's Hardware Adaptation Dev Kit is designed to make it easy to run their OS on any Android smart-phone that is currently running Cyanogen Mod 10.1.x. The HADK release comes after Jolla initially ported Sailfish to the Google Nexus 4.

Setting up the stack on any Android phone involves configuring the Mer Linux core, Android Hardware Adaptation, the device-specific Android kernel, libhybris, middleware packages, the Qt/Wayland WPA plug-in that uses Android's hwcomposer, and then all of the Jolla Sailfish OS components.

More details on the HADK public release can be found via JollaUsers.com.
