What do you know, Tizen running on a 3rd-party device! Developer duo xjobb from ST Ericsson has done a great job running Tizen 1.0 Larkspur from a Micro SD card on Snowball – a low power, low cost Single Board Computer based on the ST-Ericsson Nova A9500 processor (Dual Cortex A9 + Mali 400 GPU).
Their main goal is to run Tizen smoothly on Snowball. The project page and full instructions are at the Igloo Community wiki.

The video below shows the Qt demo running on the Tizen Developer Device:

If you are wondering how the recently released Tizen 1.0 Larkspur looks like, here’s a video that BadaHub (a Samsung Bada enthusiast site) just posted. The video basically shows swipe scrolling on the Tizen smartphone interface — it’s quite laggy as it is being run on the SDK emulator. It also shows some screens like the date and time setting, display setting, memory, NFC, browser, memo, music, dialer, swipe to unlock UI, volume control, and the on-screen keyboard.
Tizen version 1.0 is out! In time for the 2012 Tizen Developer Conference, Tizen.org just announced that Tizen 1.0 Larkspur SDK has been released and the SDK can now be downloaded for Windows (32-bit) and Ubuntu (32-bit). Updates to the SDK and source code include the following:
