The Raspberry Pi Dev Team have unveiled a new stable Android operating system which has been specifically created to run on the Raspberry Pi. The team decided to create the Android OS after searching for an already available Android OS to run on the Raspberry Pi but found no stable environments currently under development or built.
“We then decided to create a stable Android version that runs perfectly on the Raspberry Pi for anyone that wants to run AOSP on the Raspberry Pi. We are planning in using Android Pie GO Source Codes due to the Raspberry Pi RAM limitations and offer the best experience for the end user once we deliver a completely optimised version of the OS.”
The team has taken to Kickstarter to raise the required funds needed to fully develop the Android OS and are hoping to raise €3,000 over the next 50 or so days to cover the development costs.
“The project will be free for users and we plan to give support to business for a small cost. With the business contributions and users donations we will continue optimizing and support different versions and platforms in future. We are really excited to present this project and we are hoping to get all the help possible to make this project a reality and that millions of users can have Android running stable and fluently on their devices. Deciding the best version to be able to start the development and that the team can optimize the maximum out of Android to be able to use it in the Raspberry Pi.”
