Any word about Android builds?
#1
I'm curious if anyone's aware of any specific intentions to bring an Android build to the Pinebook Pro? Would love on to keep on an SD card and use during traveling.

The July update described the operating systems that are expected when the 'pro ships. Android 9 is on the list... but wasn't looked at in much detail because, without touch, Android will be a bit compromised.

I saw that, and it is what got me wondering about it. Since I don't have a Rock64Pro and tend to stay out of that subforum, I wasn't sure if any of our community developers expressed an interest or started working on anything.

I don't have

There really is interest in Android? Yes, there is a build. Ok I'll find out more for you ...
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

The stock ROCKPro64 Android 9 build can work on Pinebook Pro. However, NVMe feature not yet supported.

Thanks @Luke and @tllim for your replies.

No need to dig anything up, @Luke. Are Android images for the Rock64Pro likely to work on the PBPs? Are the similar enough in hardware, or are the additional components of the PBP likely to cause issues?

I noticed ayufan's Chromium OS should be fit for the PBP, so that's an enticing option, too.
