Android 5.1.1 TV (old-stable, no longer maintained)
#1
Hi,

The last couple of days I have been working on making our Pine A64 useful, at least in some way. It took some time, but progress is quite promising. Maybe someone would be interested in trying it out.


Features

- I can play Youtube videos and cast them from Phone or Browser,
- I can control Pine using my TV pilot (using HDMI CEC),
- The WiFi appears to not be connecting (but discovering) solved,
- I had troubles with working Bluetooth solved,
- 4K@30fps appears to be working,
- I can run Plex and cast videos using Plex app,
- I can use Android Remote on Mobile,
- I can use Spotify Connect,
- Google Play is not working after first update: this device is not supported, blabla solved,
- Standby over HDMI-CEC doesn't work, when TV sends a standby command and then Power On, Pine will not wake up (disable Auto standby on TV for now).

How to compile?

Tutorial how to compile sources is already written: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/manifest. Skip only `extract-bsp` part since the kernel is already updated.

How to install?

Download compressed image from:
https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-5.1/releases

You can use RasPlex Installer to copy it to card, just point to downloaded image file:
http://www.rasplex.com/get-started/raspl...llers.html

There's a problem with DPI on the first boot. When you see a welcome screen you have to reboot Pine.

Troubleshooting

If someone decides to try this. Please post your `dmesg` log and `adb logcat`. You can connect with `adb` over IP address, like this: `adb connect IP`.

List of my improvements

- rewrote HDMI CEC kernel driver for our 3.10 and pine64 longsleep sources: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux-3.10 and https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/linux-pine64,
- write HDMI CEC hardware driver for Android: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/device-...d/hdmi-cec
- configure tulip-chiphd to behave as Android TV: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/device-..._chiphd.mk
- add 4K output for Android TV (you have to enable Developer options, then Developer Options -> General -> HDMI resolution and choose from 720p, 1080p, 4k@30fps), it even appears to be working on my 4K Dell screen: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/package...TvSettings
- extend Android TV build: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/proprie...google_atv
- make the build to behave as fugu to make Google Store to detect this system as only Android TV compatible
- disable IPv6 support to mitigate problems with Allwinner media player which doesn't support IPv6 when playing movies over network
- wrote Power Management module for Android, making this build a 15% faster then original,
- have fully reproducible builds and use CI to build Android images
