Android 11 for the Raspberry Pi4

Raspberry Pi4

A release of Android 11 for the Raspberry pi4 has been made available.

I’ve tried a couple of versions of Android on the Raspberry Pi and none of them were any good, no matter how much prodding you did to it through Android Bridge (ADB) the resolution was always really low with bad performance due to missing drivers.

This new version of Android appears to have missing hardware accelerated video playback at the moment so will be of little use for video.

We will give it a try at some point as the Raspberry Pi4 makes a great little signage player with our NoticeboardLive system when running Linux so would be doubly good if it can use Android.
