That depends on whether you have got fully control over the device. If
you have, there is no reason why you shouldn't install a toolchain on
your phone. Under the hood there is a linux kernel running with a
little odd userland but you can do the same things as on any regular

If your vendor does not want you to have full access to your device
things look a bit more dim...

What Kristian has done is integrating chicken scheme with the google
maintained cross compilation toolchain so you can compile chicken for
your phone (and your apps) on your host.

Kind regards,
