Android 6.0 Tablet and TV (release candidate, maintained)
trenton4k: You are right. I can also see GPU in Kodi.

Sorry, my statement was not correct. Today I was able to investigate my problem more accurate.
I am using a TVheadend server (Raspberry Pi & Libreelec (Kodi)) to provide DVB-T2 (H265 standard! in Germany) streams. With my pine I can stream with several video players these LiveTV streams, but not with Kodi. However I can play records in .ts format. So far with no build (Android 7, 6 or 5.1.1.) I was able to play this H265 stream via Kodi. I guess this is a Kodi problem and does not really belong here.
I just got a new TV and wanted to test Smile Does this version support 4K?
It should work, but use 4Kp24.

It takes about 10 minutes for first boot to finish.

Report all issues here:

What does work?

It seems to work nicely and be more responsive then 7.0 build.

Widevine DRM L3 does work, so you should be able to use Netflix.

It also allows you to update SuperSU binary, so rooting is OK too.

What does not?

- So far it seems to be OK.

This is alpha build, so do not complain Smile

If something doesn't work:
- try to see logs (adb logcat, adb shell dmesg),
- try to compile and fix it by yourself,
- when you find solution create a Pull Request for one of this repositories:

How to compile?

You can also see my Jenkins compilation script:



The builds are designed to be used with Pine A64 1GB or 2GB on at least 4GB sdcard.

Use Etcher to write images:

The build automatically resize data partition on first boot to use sdcard space.


To enable LCD, edit uEnv.txt from BOOT partition and uncomment:

HDMI resolution:

Edit uEnv.txt and select one. You can find all supported in uEnv.txt:


Ethernet speed:

Edit uEnv.txt and select desired speed, by default it uses auto-negotiation.
For example to limit to 100Mbps:


Google Apps:

Android Regular and TV already has Google Apps installed.

Wow great now also Android 6 on the pine64, this is really nice!! First impression it indeed looks quite smooth!
Is there a command to generate a LiveSuit image with this build?

I also have a Banana Pi M64 and I want to get it into eMMC.

adb over USB works on M64. Plus they have Ampak wifi. It should be a better board for working on Android. I am definitely not a fan of working off from a SD Card.

The hardware schematic is almost identical to Pine64, with a minor change in wifi power moved from DLDO4 to DLDO3.
Not sure what is LiveSuit.
Mibox3 Android? good work thanks
jonsmirl: I believe that LiveSuit allows you to write arbitrary image to eMMC. So as long as you will have working image it should work OK.

LiveSuit, PhoenixCard, PhoenixSuit are all tools from Allwinner that you use for updating their hardware.  These tools can work in three modes 1) make a bootable SD Card, 2) make a SD Card with a header that when it is booted it copies the rest of the SD Card into eMMC, or 3) they use FEL mode over USB to directly copy the image into eMMC.

I tried last week and couldn't get them to work with your images. I can poke into it more and see if I can figure out what is wrong. I think the image needs a header added.
So, basically these tools require specially created images, in special format, with special headers. I don't think that this is possible the `dd` images then. I basically had very bad experience with these tools.

I believe that even today, you can prepare SD image that will basically install (dd) system to nand. It seems easier and more user friendly.
