You can locate the LCD panel build for Android on wiki page. here is the download link: http://files.pine64.org/os/android/andro...ixCard.zip

Good to know. Is there a dd-like image as well (cat <image> | pv | dd of=<dev> bs=1M)?

We plan to have a new release on next week and will release DD image together.

I have managed to get the android LCD version to work ok, but I was wondering if any of the others work with the LCD? Remix, Ubuntu etc?

Thanks

I'd also like an answer to this question too!  I don't really want to run Android - LINUX (or BSD even! :-) ) all the way for this little black duck...  Surely with 2GB RAM (I got two 2 GB boards) it would be enough to run Ubuntu Touch or at least Unity ?

How "Linuxy" are the Android builds?  e.g. can you get busybox and a shell?
Android practically build on top on Linux.
Tell me something else that you know...    that's less obvious...  Android runs a HIDEOUS JAVA VM on top of the Linux kernel - but you have to root them and a bunch of other stuff to get userland GNU tools and/or busybox and NIX shell...  to tell the truth - I prefer jailbroken iOS to rooted Android...  

Saying that Android = Linux is like saying that ALL Fords run on Linux...  they might have the Linux kernel running in their EMS - but that doesn't mean they don't need petrol!
Also - at Post #4 from last week - it's now "next week" - how long till Android 5.1.1 sideways/portrait "dd" image?

Changed the avatar (sheesh - everyone so uptight about a finger - I've got 9 other ones)...  looking forward to an update on issues with Android and the Pine supplied LCD (I want root in my Android - but as stated previously - I'd MUCH rather have LCD touchpanel support in a Linux build).

I've added my 2 cents to the bug reports on Bluetooth not working with Lollipop (2GB board with Pine WiFi/BLE hat).
