  1. Many thanks for your efforts. But maybe it’s better if you focus on optimizing one version of Android instead on always moving to bleeding edge but no complete usability yet. IMHO the marshmallow build is pretty fast and fluid, but crash is everywhere.

    1. I agree 110%. While I truly do respect and appreciate the efforts put forth in trying to get Android to function on RPI, all we seem to have is a collection of fragmented, incomplete builds from various sources, and none of them function as they need to. Installing Android for the sake of running the OS and nothing else is not moving forward. I understand there must be some serious roadblocks to getting video to work, but I’m giving up on this pursuit until Google officially supports it (if they ever do). Buying an Android TV stick until this happens. Thank you again for your hard work in developing this, and I wish you all the best in your efforts. :)

  2. I agree on the previous comments. Usually people wants to actually do things with android once it is installed and right now besides running the actual OS there’s not to much people can do with it.

    In my opinion most efforts should go to the video acceleration and decoding (many RPi3 users give that use to it). Taking advantages of Android having apps for virtually any VOD service (Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Amazon, and so on), would be a HUGE boost to the project.

  3. hi
    i am running Android 7.1.1 Tablet Build on Raspberry Pi 3.
    Everything works fine but the mouse pointer is not coming properly and comes like pixels has anyone faced or fixed this issue..it will be very helpful.

  4. Thank you for the build. I was able to get it installed. Having a couple of video issues. First the mouse pointer is rectangle with dots in it? Any recommendations? With this build I can drive my computer monitor with a HDMI to DVI adapter, but I am not able to drive my old TV. Would like to have 720P. I have tried several different HDMI Modes in the config.txt files, but no luck so far. Any guidance?
