  • Patent number: 10528210
    Abstract: Graphical navigation of foreground and background applications running on a mobile computing device across multiple active user environments, even when graphics information for background applications is not maintained by a mobile operating system of the mobile computing device. A last graphical representation of an application screen may be captured as the application state is transitioned from the foreground state to the background state. The last graphical representation may be associated with a position in an application activity stack representing foreground and background mobile operating system applications. The navigation techniques may be used in a computing environment with multiple active user environments. A first active user environment may be associated with the mobile operating system. A second active user environment may be associated with the mobile operating system or a desktop operating system running concurrently with the mobile operating system on the mobile computing device.

  • Patent number: 10503344
    Abstract: Dynamic configuration of cross-environment applications enhances the computing experience in a computing environment with an extended active user environment and/or multiple active user environments. A mobile computing device maintains multiple active device configurations associated with multiple active user environments and/or application windows within active user environments. Device configuration qualifiers are determined from a variety of sources including device characteristics, device indicators, user settings, and/or application presentation. The mobile computing device selects active resource sets for applications based on the device configuration qualifiers. Application presentation is dynamically updated by disestablishing an application screen and establishing a new active application screen using a different resource set. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile operating system and a full desktop Linux distribution on a modified Android kernel.

  • Patent number: 9317457
    Abstract: A mobile computing device with a mobile operating system and desktop operating system running concurrently and independently on a shared kernel without virtualization. The mobile operating system provides a user experience for the mobile computing device that suits the mobile environment. The desktop operating system provides a full desktop user experience when the mobile computing device is docked to a secondary terminal environment. The desktop operating system may be suspended when the mobile computing device is not docked with a secondary terminal environment and resumed when the mobile computing device is docked with a secondary terminal environment that provides a desktop computing experience. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile OS and a full desktop Linux OS distribution on a modified Android kernel.

  • Patent number: 9077731
    Abstract: Cross-environment rendering and user interaction support provide a seamless computing experience in a multi-operating system computing environment. The multi-operating system computing environment may include a mobile operating system and a desktop operating system running concurrently and independently on a mobile computing device. The mobile operating system may be associated with a first user environment and the desktop operating system may be associated with a second user environment. Real-time display of applications running in the mobile operating system within the second user environment is provided by rendering the application through an extended graphics context of the mobile operating system. Application graphics for multiple applications are rendered into portions of a single graphics frame. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile operating system and a full desktop Linux distribution on a modified Android kernel.

  • Patent number: 9060006
    Abstract: Cross-environment rendering and user interaction support provide a seamless computing experience in a multi-operating system computing environment. Cross-environment rendering provides real-time display of applications running in a mobile operating system to be displayed within an environment of a desktop operating system. The mobile operating system and the desktop operating system may be running concurrently and independently on a shared kernel of a mobile computing device. A graphics server of the mobile operating system tears down and rebuilds the rendering context for each application as it composites the surface information. The rendering context may be established to match the resolution of the associated display, so that graphics will be appropriately rendered for that resolution. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile operating system and a full desktop Linux distribution on a modified Android kernel.

  • Patent number: 9047102
    Abstract: Cross-environment rendering and user interaction support provide a seamless computing experience in a multi-operating system computing environment. The multi-operating system computing environment may include a mobile operating system and a desktop operating system running concurrently and independently on a mobile computing device. Real-time or instant display of an application running in the mobile operating system within an environment of the desktop operating system is provided by rendering application graphics for the application within the desktop operating system. A console application of the desktop operating system may access surface information for the application from shared memory and render the application within a console window of the computing environment associated with the desktop operating system. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile operating system and a full desktop Linux distribution on a modified Android kernel.

  • Patent number: 8933949
    Abstract: Cross-environment rendering and user interaction support provide a seamless computing experience in a multi-operating system computing environment. The multi-operating system computing environment may include a mobile operating system and a desktop operating system running concurrently and independently on a shared kernel of a mobile computing device. User interaction support includes handling input events initially received in the shared kernel by accepting the input events in the desktop operating system and translating, mapping, and/or passing the input events through a virtual input device to the mobile operating system such that applications of the mobile operating system receive the input events as if coming from a user interaction space of the mobile operating system. The mobile computing device may be a smartphone running the Android mobile operating system and a full desktop Linux distribution on a modified Android kernel.
