I think I found it from a "sped up version" that used wire frame for the keyboard.

I have this APK for the wire-frame version in my dropbox no login should be required.
It does have the bug that was the reason for my original request and this thread, annoyingly, it mostly affects my games!
I won't pass on the b-em based one without the author's consent.

Hi,

I downloaded the new beebdroid and installed on a Samsung SM-T530 Galaxy Tab 10, it work much better than the plsystore version.

I like that local ssd files can loaded anb self written programmes can be saved easily.
Regards,

Derek

I've been working on a fork of Little Fluffy Toys' Beebdroid on GitHub - user sleekweasel - over the past couple of months.

It complies under Android Studio and fixes the position independent code issue that probably stopped most people working on it.

It also makes it work properly with Bluetooth keyboards for programming (taking over the 'no keyboard' mode) which does weird things to the shift key, though it would be easy enough to create a new no keyboard mouse if that's a problem.

I've also restored the machine image save/restore code and have plumbed adval 1 and 2 into the mouse x and y coordinates, though it needs some trickery to avoid mixing last x with the current y (I'm planning to set the lower bit as a simple timestamp).

There's an APK under the releases tab.

Not sure about position independent code, my main problem was the bug in the ARM ASM for I think a sbc ZP,X instruction (or something like that).

There's a patch for that; I haven't encountered anything triggering it, but it was on my radar to check. Kenton has reached out to me, so hopefully we'll update on the play store (and probably Amazon, since it's deeply amusing to have a Beeb appear from the Firestick, and use a Bluetooth keyboard with it).

If you look in my GitHub - sleekweasel - you'll find a couple of APKs in releases. Give me a test case for the SBC instruction, and I'll get a fix up.
