Re: How possible is it to port over android 4.4 kik-kat?

its not specifically for the PI, and the specific PI drivers are what is preventing android to be ported, not the core. This is a completely ridiculous claim. The kernel is what contains the device drivers. There IS a modern kernel for the Pi, which would work great with android with a few tweaks. ...

Re: What's the simple and safe way to do a "shutdown" button

I noticed nobody has asked, and the title says shutdown - so this is probably a stupid question. but, does this button also boot the device? or does it then have to be disconnected from power, and reconnecting it turns it on? ideally, I'm looking for a power state toggle(or as close to it as possibl...

Re: XBMC OpenELEC and LCD HD44780 via GPIO

I can confirm, that Serac's compiled hd44780.so.gz is working on v1 and v2 copy Serac's hd44780 to /home/pi/lcdproc Made change in /etc/LCDd.conf DriverPath=/home/pi/lcdproc/ Driver=hd44780 ConnectionType=rpi D7=22 D6=21 (v1) or 27 (v2) D5=17 D4=23 RS=25 EN=24 I seem to have gotten the driver worki...

Re: XBMC OpenELEC and LCD HD44780 via GPIO

Many people seem to be confused about OpenELEC, and seem to think that A) you can edit most files, B) that it comes with nano, and C) that it has sudo. One of the many benefits to OpenELEC is that it is a stripped down linux distro, which is designed entirely around being a media center. NOT a regul...

Re: XBMC OpenELEC and LCD HD44780 via GPIO

And of course, in trying to compile lcdproc on its own, I got a lovely " hd44780-rpi.c:284:2: error: 'PrivateData' has no member named 'rpi_gpio' " message. That should not happen as rpi_gpio is declared at line 161 in hd44780-low.h... Unless your compiler is not defining the __ARMEL__ flag. This c...

Re: XBMC OpenELEC and LCD HD44780 via GPIO

It seems like this might work, however I'm not entirely sure how to add this to the main repo for OpenELEC. It seems when you build OpenELEC from source, it downloads the lcdproc source as a tar.gz file, and checks it against an md5 sum, so I can't just edit the tar.gz file. And of course, in trying...
