I would like to try it as well. Plus I have a wattmeter, so I will try to do some empirical measurements of the cost-benefits.

kr105, would love to try your android miner.  Grin

I'm pretty sure it won't be cost effective  Embarrassed

The only benefit of this would be possible further exposure of bitcoins

Well... Since kr105 says that he has one in development, might as well try it right? Otherwise all those man-hours of development would be for naught.

I do not think this would be profitable, and it may damage your phone, as phones are not designed to operate at that intensity.

Basically, this project would be interesting only, as an experiment, and spreading the news about the bitcoin (as someone mentioned above).

Not a good idea to mine on a phone.
I have the n900 running a very old version of bitcoind, it is very difficult to get to compile bitcoind in arm hardware.
One good thing about software running on n900 is that it will also run on the guruplug, and the openmoko, but none of this platforms are good for mining, might be good for a mining pool where the shares are done by other computers in the case of the guruplug.
In the case of the n900 just by running the bitcoind daemon, the phone gets very hot and drains the battery very quickly, that is running the daemon without any mining gets the phone very hot.
The only reason the daemon was run, was to use the phone as a portable wallet, but it was not a good idea, since it is exactly the same command line daemon that you have on a pc, but on the phone cut and paste from the command line or to the command line can no be done, and typing the bitcoin address with a stylus or keyboard is difficult but not imposible, good for emergencies however.
Also the phone can barely run bitcoind, it lacks resources to run bitcoind properly.

Yeah, the only benefit of doing this I could think of would be as a conversation peice. I mean, you may be able to get say, 500 KHashes/sec(and that's being extremely optimistic- the mining hardware page says only about 200 is to be expected), but still, that's unbelievably slow all things considered. But hey, I'm not going to stop you. It'd be entertaining in the sense of a 'screw it, we're doing this' sense.

cgdroid says it requires root access.  I'll give it a shot if I end up rooting my phone (which I might end up doing if my carrier doesnt update my HTC one x to jellybean soon.)

I'm sure this has been stated before, but you're killing the phone and the battery quickly when you mine on it...

Interesting concept... then again it usually always was easier to buy low sell high than it was to work for the currency itself : P

I don't think it would be worth it because even if your phone is on the charger it might drastically affect it's battery life.

(Not sure - Does the battery form part of the circuit at all when the charger is plugged in, or is it completely bypassed?)


Once the battery is charged, it just stops charging and any power usage will come from the battery.  It'll recharge again after it drops a bit.  Somewhere a graph where someone showed the power usage of his charger over time.  Once it was fully charged, the charger stopped using power for like 30 minutes, then came back on for a minute to top the battery off again.
Why would this be?
My android phones run fine when theyre plugged without a battery in at all.  So it doesnt make sense that theyed use battery while plugged in.
