I think the phone would burn out before making 1% of it's value back in mining power, but if someone had some spare smartphones it wouldn't really be a waste of electricity if the miner was available.  I have a Nokia 6600 here that could use some abuse!

I have a Motorola Xoom tablet with a dual core 1ghz processor that runs 24/7 so if there was an android app for litecoin mining I would gladly use it, if anybody makes one I'll gladly test it

Just tried loading the Android Bitcoin client on my friends Droid and couldn't even get that to work properly (just to send him some BTC). But now all of a sudden you want us to mine ?LOL

The Android Bitcoin client works perfectly for me and all of the people I've heard of... maybe your friend's android is too old or basic?

Just out of curiosity I tried compiling cpuminer on my iPhone 3G, which (according to Wikipedia) sports a 412-MHz ARM1176 processor. Here's the result:

Code:

Are you able to compile it for Android 3.2? My Motorola Xoom tablet sports a Nvidia Tegra2 1ghz dual core processor and runs 24/7 so if I could pull a few extra Kh/s out of it I would be happy.

so 100 hashes for an iPhone?  wouldn't it be some luck to get a block discovery solo mining with your cell phone.

so, keep up the good work and let's get cellphone mining!!!!!!

Unfortunately I don't have an Android device, so the answer is no, sorry. Sad

I would be curious to know if we could mine LTC on a Raspberry PI. http://www.raspberrypi.org/ It's only $25 and really low power. And runs linux. :-)

Sadly the $25 model has no Ethernet controller... but it has a HD GPU Cool

The $35 model have ethernet controller

I hate to see this die, an android miner for anything would be awesome just to play with.

I have been following this thread for a while. Someone recently released a client, although it is very beta.

I talked to the author on IRC, this is a port of the Java miner. I guess it is so slow because the Android JVM is not as powerful as the one available for PC.

It would be nice to see a port of the C miner. p2k managed to compile it for the iPad 2, and got about 0.85 khash/s on two cores.

I'm stoked to see this out there although I haven't been able to get more than a miner started message out of it.

Count me in.I want my Nokia N900 to start pulling it's weight. Doe that phone support Java/Java script? So I can use a browser based miner.I tried installing Java (like prompted) but this didn't work.
Can someone create a GUI miner app that uses CPU and GPU (assuming its OpenCl or WebCL based chip) for my Nokia N900? As i keep hearing of solutions yet they're not easy to use/install/run like GUIMiner is.
Does Maemo 5 have a JVM built in (N900s OS)? or can it be installed? If so where from and how to install it?

You can run the actual bitcoind binary on the n900: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2125.0

So I recently purchased a smart phone.  Should I be tapping into it's single core processor to get some more coins?  I'm sure it's not very cost effective, but just out of curiousity, has anyone tried this?

Is there anyone who has used a cell phone to mine one of the cpu mining chains?

So far in my experience I never encounter that things to be happen in my mobile actually, Just what I encountered is earning bitcoin in my cellphone through playing the game in the androids which is bitcoin floppy by that time. But that would be nice if there is a chance to mine bitcoin in the mobile phone.

You can mine Gridcoins with your Android device, by using it for various scientific computations through BOINC. When I charge my smartphones, BOINC kicks in automatically and I am earning a few Gridcoins along the way.

I really don't think any smarphone is going to have a processor that can provide enough hashing power.
You are just going to drain your battery for a couple pennies if you are lucky.

The best you could hope for would be an app that monitors your ASIC/GPU/CPU miners from your smartphone, probably.
