Re: Android Pie on RPi 3B(+) with hardware acceleration

Wouldn't Android Go work better? Android Go is a version of Android optimised for devices with 512MB-1GB RAM and low-powered processors.

Re: Eltechs ExaGear Desktop will be discontinued on Feb.28'th 2019

ExaGear was always failing, and Eltechs probably knew that their product was failing. They were getting people to pay just to run x86 applications when the same thing can essentially be achieved with an x86 chroot. Also, they got an employee of their company to spam about their product on this forum...

Well, better hardware seems obvious. Otherwise we could just continue selling the Pi3B+...... Does that mean you're going to stop selling the 3B+ when the 4B comes out? Unlikely, I suspect.

Re: Running two different OS at the same time

You can run two Linux distributions alongside each other by running one in a container and one natively. For example, you could run armhf Raspbian alongside arm64 Ubuntu. But since you're using Android here, things get more complicated. You could try UserLAnd (which I use on my Galaxy S9 with DeX mo...

Ubuntu images built using live-build use linux-raspi2 and flash-kernel. linux-raspi2 is an Ubuntu-style kernel with patches from the Raspbian kernel source so that it works better on the Raspberry Pi.

Re: Strange boot folder transformation in ubuntu 18.10!?

You can modify the fstab if you want so that the kernel mounts the boot partition at /boot instead, but then flash-kernel will fail when the kernel is updated. In Ubuntu/Debian you can't do this. Or more precisely if you do the kernel packages will fail to install even before flash-kernel is trigge...

It's most likely that your version of Mate doesn't have the right bootcode & firmware for the newest Raspberry.

You need a version built after 16th November 2018.
