// might offer a way to install Fenrir for example.
The fenrir core engine should run very well, since it does only require pure python but  it  would requre some extra drivers.  
- Screen (to grab the content)
-  Input to be able to consume shortcuts 
- speech (via android speech API) or use the generic speech driver
- sound (to play soundicons) or use the generic driver

Since i do not own a android data crawler (sailfish OS rulez :D ) i cannot provide them by myself.
But if anyone wants to dive in, i will give support and merge the stuff upstream.

Cheers Chrys
