Re: Porting Android

I believe there is already a copy of Android 4 out there compiled for the same processor as that used in the Raspberry Pi. Main Chip: Allwinner A10/ 1GHz Cortex-A8 actually allwinner a10 is not the same chip as the raspi. allwinner is arm7 while raspi is arm6 (older architecture, therefore not comp...

Re: Adobe Flash in Raspberry Pi

well maybe a workaround would be using android with flash plugin (although it is removeed from play store you can still find the apk's), but android now is really (i mean really) slow, so we have to wait for broadcom drivers for that although i don't know how fast would it be with fully working driv...

Re: UL CE Certified cases

The certification process is expensive $20k to start if we get everything right the first time around. well i think you have found the point why you probably won't find such a case ($20k is a huge amount for not creating and selling any items yet, just a document that most people dont even need).

Re: Porting Android

is it a viable option? (possibly it'd get lost among the video links) We already tried that, they didn't work at all with the Pi. I think there are some differences between the Videocore IV in the Galaxy Y and the one in the Pi. Broadcom will release the drivers anyway eventually, so our best bet i...

i think the switches have a momentary and on/off settings on them depending on how you wire them. no, as they have different mechanical parts inside (so the on-off/latching one stays pushed in closing the circuit, while the momentary closes while pushed and goes back to original position opening up...

well you can use the yellow block as well (to get 5V for the pi maybe), however i guess that the molexes are enough for the switch you would need something like that then: http://www.daycounter.com/Circuits/Latching-Momentary-Switch/Latching-Momentary-Switch.phtml (it makes your momentary switch act...

Re: media center case

the pico's inside part acts more-or-less the same as a standard atx psu (the main difference is that it creates the 12V-5V-3V3 rails inside) anyway you can start the psu by shorting 'power on' with 'ground' (look for starting atx psu without pc) then you can have molex Y cables to have enough plugs ...

Re: media center case

i'd say if you want to power the pi, a hard drive and optical drive you might want to look for PicoPSU that way you only need one dc input and you can use a notebook psu-sized mains adapter and have molexes as well for the drives http://www.mini-box.com/core/media/media.nl?id=14401&c=ACCT127230&h=d6...

@fodi the framebuffer problem is gone with CM7.2. CM9/ICS still has the problem. I don't know how to code, so I don't think I'll be able to solve that.

you could try using laptop screen controllers off ebay

so you have a fan with a molex connector - cut the cable before the molex connector (sou you have 4 wires coming off the fan) - take one of the black cables and the red cable , insulate the other cables with duct tape - get a usb cable and cut it somewhere - get the red and the black wires and conne...
