Anyone know of just an arm mining app? Maybeh the arm a8 that the beagle
Bone has it would be interesting to see a machine code miner just to get some extra cpu cycles in there.

There's a Litecoin mining app for the android (search for "andltc miner"), which according to pooler is a port of the java miner to dalvik.

Don't think there's a miner for bitcoin for android yet, nor one that works on the GPUs.

Also there's this CuBox : http://www.solid-run.com/

I already have a hard time getting my Android phone through a whole day. Can't imagine battery life with a mining app! Smiley

I ported cpuminer to Android over the weekend, mostly as an exercise for learning Android development. 

I haven't fully worked out a UI solution.  Currently you can only view the status output through the debug console.  Having issues with Java callbacks from a native environment.

Perhaps when I get it a bit more polished I'll share if anyone is interested.

Of course it would be impractical to actually mine with it.  Although you never know, perhaps one day someone in some remote village with a solar powered phone, will download an app and run it for an hour or so to earn a few satoshis with which to play.  I'd like to integrate p2ppool and a wallet to make it an easy one-click solution.  Also sooner or later Android is bound to support openCL.

I would think so, as long as it as an ARM CPU.  And you can manually configure the number of threads to take advantage of multiple cores.

I'm developing an Android Bitcoin miner that i'll be uploading soon, currently it does around 450khash/s per core on my Galaxy S2, i optimized it a lot as it was giving about 230khash/s using the original cpuminer 'c' algo. I'm looking to optimize it to give at least 500khash/s per core, so i can get 1mh/s on my phone. Yes, all of this is just for fun, not profitable at all. I will let you know when it is ready  Smiley

Sounds nice.  Mine was not optimized at all. 

I'm curious to see the code.  Mostly wondering how you solved the problem I was encountering, updating the UI from native threads.

An android miner would actually be a cool but very wasteful way to pay for android software.
Want to play a puzzle? pay by mining in the backgound!
and that would be a sure way for your app to be thrown out of the android market / google play.

But nice thinking ^^

Edit: Please release your code !!

an arm core optimised release would be useful in other areas as well, so please include source in any release.

Though for 1Mhs you might as well put it on glbse.com in one of the 1Mhs/share mining co.s and have a responsive phone :-)

As long as your phone is plugged into someone else's power.  (at work, maybe?)

Remember that there is OpenCL supporting gpus already avalibe for ARM cpus...

ARM Gpus from 2012 onward are going to Support full OpenCL, Directx 11, OpenGL 4.0, OpenGL ES 2.0 and some even Directx 9.

Last I checked there was no API yet though, at least not for Android.

Dont think this would be good, maybe for litecoin.
Bitcoin on ARM suggests that, like other forms of BTC mining, it works best if you simply ignore the math. For example, there's a post here somewhere where someone estimates their payback period on FPGA hardware to be 2 years. Two years to break even on something that will have no resale value in six months? True Believers have to be lining up left and right for a deal like that.

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
― John Rogers

Even if you could do this, you would make so little ... a couple pennies a day or something.

You won't make any money. In fact, you will lose it.  There is no way a phone will ever make more in coin than the cost of electricity.

Cost of a battery to the amount of bitcoins you generate will not be worth it :\
That alongside the possibility of your phone pretty much dying..haha

Lol everyone keeps mentioning phones that would be pointless for sure. Beaglebone (maybe beagleboard might be better) on the other hand might go faster with a mini lunux version no gui, nothing to compute besides btc transactions.
