drinkypoo's Journal: Android for Raspberry Pi 4

Journal by drinkypoo

More or less every day I visit the Raspberry Pi home page to see if there is any new information on when the allegedly-mostly-working Android 4 will be released, and every day there isn't. As far as I know, Broadcom is the holdup. This does not give me confidence in Broadcom...

Android for Raspberry Pi

  • someone is hopefully working on reverse engineering that blob.

  • How is Broadcom holding up Android for Raspberry Pi?

    I thought the Pi had an ARM processor and everything was pretty vanilla.

    I'm sorry, I better go read some more about the Pi. I clearly don't know enough to ask the right questions.

      How is Broadcom holding up Android for Raspberry Pi?

      The boot loader and the video driver are both binary blobs, and they won't release the one we need for ICS. Or so the story goes. The only other platform out there known to use the same processor is Roku 2 which doesn't run Android.

The longer the title, the less important the job.

Working...
