Android Go on the Raspberry Pi 3?

Did you know that the Samsung Galaxy J2 Core has a quad core ARM Cortex-A53 clocked at 1.4GHz and also has 1GB RAM? The J2C's specs match those of the Raspberry Pi 3B+. The J2 Core runs Android Go, a version of Android optimised for low-powered smartphones which would struggle to run the full versio...

Re: Windows 10 ARM64 (Dekstop, not IOT)

The Pi has no UEFI, you must provide your own UEFI firmware such as TianoCore UEFI. I wonder if u-boot would work for Windows 10 ARM. It is a third-party bootloader for the Raspberry Pi which emulates UEFI and can therefore execute EFI binaries.

Re: Why is the Raspbian desktop experience so slow?

It doesn't matter if your desktop environment takes up 1MB of RAM or 700MB. Resource-heavy apps such as Chromium and Firefox are still going to slow down/freeze the Pi if you do too much in them.

sakaki has a GitHub repository where she provides a frequently updated 64-bit kernel for the Raspberry Pi 3. If you want to update your kernel, you should update it from that repository.

sakaki's tutorial will also work on other Linux distros for the Pi 3 such as Debian with this KVM-enabled kernel. It will also work on x64 hosts without KVM enabled but will be slower than on actual ARM64 hardware.

Re: FreeBSD with Wireless support for Raspberry RPI3 ?

Drivers for the Pi 3's built-in WiFi are available, but only for Linux. FreeBSD is Unix, which is similar to Linux, but also different in many ways. The Raspberry Pi hardware is not 'free' so the FreeBSD devs can't code their own drivers.

Re: Easily run 64-bit Debian Stretch packages on a Raspbian system: new RPi3 demo image released (systemd-nspawn, LXDE)

You should be able to do the same from armhf Debian. It should follow then that you could use armhf raspian packages and Debian arm64 packages together with a multiarch setup. The generic Debian kernels are bootable on the pi, you just need to change the fat partition so that it is mounted as /boot...

Re: Raspberry PI OS for Desktop ... LXDE issue

Point releases are simply made so that users don't have to perform so many updates after installation. Ubuntu 18.04.2 is going to be released on the 7th of February, so if you download Ubuntu on the 8th of February and then install it, few (if any) updates will need to be installed.
