Raspberry Pi enthusiasts interested in learning more about how to install the android operating system on their Raspberry Pi mini PC may be interested in a new tutorial published to the PiMyLifeUp website. The tutorial is classed as a “Beginner” project and uses a special build of LineageOS developed by konstakang.
“To get Android to run on a Raspberry Pi, we will be using LineageOS an open-source operating system that is built upon the Android platform. While the Raspberry Pi 3 build of Android has support for a hardware renderer, the Pi 4 build currently does not.
This means, for the time being, you may have better performance when using the Pi 3 when you are using anything that is graphics intensive. The Pi 4 in the meantime, will utilize the Google software renderer called SwiftShader. While its performance is decent, it will suffer most when rendering graphics-intensive games. You will need to have a Raspberry Pi 4 or a Raspberry Pi 3 to install this version of Android. These builds do not currently support older versions of the Pi.”
