Android for 1080p Pinebook?
#1
I was pleasantly surprised to receive my pinebook a few days ago in upgraded 1080p version. However the official Android for 768p Pinebook does not boot (yes, I waited over 5 minutes, just black screen).

Therefore, does anyone know when any Android for 1080p Pinebook will be released? When will the official one appear?

It's a wonderful low-cost linux laptop, but for consuming multimedia content (streaming services) Android would be much better.

So is there any update on the release of Android 8 on the PineBook 1080p?

I hope this isn't thread hijacking, as my question is relevant to the OP. The poster looking to port Lineage OS got me thinking about this.

I seems to be the trend that with a 1080P Pinebook, anyone interested in running an Android build is stuck with the image of stock Marshmallow. None of the previous builds, such as @ayufan's 7.1 or Bliss OS, will boot properly. Or at least boot to a black screen. I've seen the issues mentioned several times, and a few have alluded to there being a known reason, but no one expands on the subject. I tried going through the commit notes of ayufan's 7.1 build after finding this mentioned in an issue, but I quickly lost my place and couldn't find what they referenced.

I'm genuinely curious what  changes, apart from the IPS panel, were made between the 2 versions of the Pinebook that prevent these Android builds from booting correctly on the 1080P PBs. While I'm unlikely to resolve the issue, I feel like the information could be important to anyone that is interested (like the port of Lineage OS.)
