I'm looking for a bitcoin client which can mine on the phones CPU and GPU as well (This is just for testing purposes to complement my experiments.I already know the pros and cons of cpu mining so please don't reply sayin that GPUs are superior or CPUs r worthless for mining because I already know that) that is easily installable through the app manager and that has a GUI instead of cmd as I'm no gd at cmd.

The client needs to have:
1.A wallet that I can keep btc mined on N900 phone and send to my other wallet on the PC as well
2.It should allow me to switch between CPU or GPU mining on that phone
3.It should have a reasonable GUI and MUST NOT require the use of cmd for any aspect of this.If cmd is required then that's a fail for me.
4.An option to minimise,start/pause/stop mining.
5.It MUST be able to mine when minimised as well as in focus.
6.This app must be accomponied with an start/pause/stop widget for the desktop to stop mining if need be as well if phone i unresponsive due to gpu mining at the touch of a button.
7.Have a priority switch like :low/normal/high so that i can use my phone normally when mining with only mininal cycles when needed.

Thank you for listening and I hope that this is possible and in development.

Mining probably won't be feasible (or any sane developer will tell you there's no reason to do it on a mobile device. WAIT, there's no such thing as a sane developer, maybe you'll get what you want) but to create a wallet, we need a question answered:

What's the maximum allocated memory limit per application on this device?

On this device,there appears to be no memory limit per app on this device.

The device has 256MB RAM and 768MB Virtual memory on the phones flash memory if the 256MB RAM is insufficuent for any reason.

When RAM gets low,it simply extends into virtual memory in a seemlesss fashion but will be noticably slower than if the app was simply in RAM.

The phone has:
Maemo 5 OS (can be flashed with a custom MeeGo as well but not officially supported and is rather buggy atm)
256MB RAM
768MB Virtual flash memory
600MHZ ARM CPU
450MHZ GPU (I think)

32GB onboard storage (768MB used for Virtual memory,1.9GB for applications so it's about 28GB actual storage left after this.but still quite a lot)

I hope this answers your question nhodges.

What's your pay? Or do you expect someone to just code this for you to your requirements, for free?
 
BTW, before you spend money on it: Mining on slow devices like phones is pointless, you'd get like 0.00000000001 BTC per year Tongue Also the GPU of a phone probably doesn't do integeger ops, I doubt it can be used for hashing at all.


Bitcoin Core developer [PGP] Warning: For most, coin loss is a larger risk than coin theft. A disk can die any time. Regularly back up your wallet through FileBackup Wallet to an external storage or the (encrypted!) cloud. Use a separate offline wallet for storing larger amounts.

I understand that this request may seem crazy but this is part of a set of experiments I plan to carry out regarding the scaleability of distributed computing like projects like btc mining.

I had a theory once about whether it's be beneficial to include all possible computers (inside our mobile phones,car PC's PS3,laptops,PCs,Mac,Linux,perhaps even customised firmware we can just roll out on just about any device) for mining or whether it'd be better to simply let the PCs,Mac,Linux based rigs to just mine instead of trying to fit it onto every device imaginable.

I understand that experiments can cost money so I'm not exactly expecting the dev to do this all for free,When I can successfully mine 1BTC from my other experiment or more,I can use that to pay the dev.

The expected payout for this task will range from :free to about 2.5BTC max,depends on the feasibility of hte project.This project may even be scrapped anyway so don't get your hopes up on a payout,if it's just unfeasible.

From what I can see this just seems unfeasible so I'm locking this thread and consigning this idea into history.If you wish to contact me about this proposal,send me a PM with the subject 'ULE BTC miner' or N900 miner idea' then the msg u wish to send me so I can tell who's send me PMs for which thread,thank you.
