Re: Android on a Raspberry Pi

4. What is 'the regular Linux graphics stack'? https://fosdem.org/2018/interviews/robert-foss/ And just so people understand, AFAIK, there are no plans whatsoever to develop an in house Android. However, if other people make the effort, that's great. That fact the Pi has been out 5 years, and there...

Re: Android on a Raspberry Pi

Getting Android to work PROPERLY is a big big job. If a smaller team manages to get a subset working that's great, but have they got the camera working? Yes. And the official touchscreen. Full graphics acceleration? Multimedia acceleration? No idea, but Linux doesn't have full multimedia accelerati...

Re: Android on a Raspberry Pi

Yes you are right I know nothing about android. But I've already said that.

I know that none of these android builds have had 30 people working on them for years.

I know you continually exaggerate things to push Raspbian.

Re: Android on a Raspberry Pi

The amount of work required to make it function correctly was huge. The VC4 has been used on Android phones (Samsung), and the team at Broadcom was about 30 people, working for years to get that to a working state ( I was one of them). The RPF have simply never had the team size required to do it, ...

HOWTO: Install debian armhf on Pi 2/3

There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on how to do this, and what there is seems very out of date (I'm looking at you debian wiki pages!).

Not entirely sure this is right, but possibly the fat partition is not automatically checked for errors? Where does it get stuck on boot? Do you see the rainbow screen?

Kali isn't supported on here. Speaking for everyone else again?

If it was me I would switch to the standard debian armhf kernel (bootable on...

Re: Voltage normalised (0x00000000)

Perhaps the next Pi should include pads we can solder to so as to completely avoid the micro USB port, while still retaining the polyfuse protection. +1 Or some sort of header. The micro USB port is problematic even with an official power supply (for example I've had undervoltage warnings with no p...

Re: Write Raspbian img to external drive partition

It is possible to write a partition from an image file to a partition on a drive. Or you could just use the cp -a command to transfer the files. The complicated bit is booting the pi. If you want to just boot with the USB drive then you need the bootloader files on partition number 1 (it can be anyw...

Uboot can apply overlays.

As I understand it uboot can use the dtb passed to it by the pi firmware, or it can load its own.
