Gingerbread Image boots, but mouse/keyboard don't work

Sun Nov 17, 2013 6:59 pm

I've managed to get my 'pi to boot the Gingerbread Android image I found here. I've tried this with a mouse plugged in, which seems to be picked up as a USB device during startup, but no cursor appears on the screen. Is there anything I can do about this?

I'm using a 1.2A 5V power supply via the micro USB port, could power be a problem? This is the first time I've tried running Android on the 'pi so I'm not aware of any of the potential pitfalls.

1) Asking the same question in four different places at the same time will not motivate anyone to help you; in fact, it will make an supporter angry,

2) The RPi was never meant to run Android. If you want you want Android on your TV, buy one of those cheap HDMI sticks; some are even cheaper than the RPi (with case, power supply and Wifi included).
