Download: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/releases

It takes about 10 minutes for first boot to finish.

Report all issues here: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/issues

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: https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/

How to compile?

https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/local_m...arshmallow

You can also see my Jenkins compilation script:
https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android...enkinsfile

Download:

https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/android-6.0/releases

Install:

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

Use Etcher to write images: https://www.etcher.io/

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

LCD:

To enable LCD, edit uEnv.txt from BOOT partition and uncomment:
Code:
pine64_lcd=on

HDMI resolution:

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

Code:
disp_mode=1080p60

Ethernet speed:

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

Code:
eth0_speed=100

Google Apps:

Android Regular and TV already has Google Apps installed.

7.0 takes about 10 minutes too, but WHY use 6.0 instead of 7.0??

except.... when I search for netflix in the play store I am not able to find it. I live in the US if that matters.

will downloading the apk be the only way to get it on?

Netflix still does no work, they keep changing their interface making it probably one of the last items to get supported along with some Google apps since they apparently changed their headers again, or so I have heard.

MXPlayer works for both H.264 and H.265 so long as you us HW but not HW+, VLC works but not for Flash Videos.

Yep, the Pine only has HDMI 1.4 outputs not HDMI 2.0 outputs thus no 60 Hz support is possible.  Same for the Udoo if it ever comes out.

If i click on them in ES then i can play them in Kodi, but i can't add it as video source. Any help?

It's a KODI problem.  It is not the only player that lacks the ability to set where to look for videos.
