wait. so you kicked everyone out who wants to talk about the subject of raspberry pi and android?
oh no they just cant talk about that extremely touchy subject here. we have to go make a new forum..
does a forum thread really take up that much space/bandwidth on a webserver .
taking up moderators time ? could have just offered moderator positions for said thread. 43 mods.. whats a couple more just for 1 thread ?
In June 2014, Eric Anholt left Intel to instead work for Broadcom to develop a free driver (DRM/KMS driver and Gallium3D-driver) for VC4 (VideoCore 4). After just one week, he reported a noteworthy progress.
(october 2014 was last update though, hope the guy didnt die or something)
just a tad misleading
heres a thought. instead of drowning everyone in tears about the thread being locked and how nobody cares blah blah blah (which in itself is dumb, considering the fact that people keep freakin' asking.) how bout. someone just write up an updated article, stating that either ANDROID AND PI WILL NEVER HAPPEN!!!!! or better yet. how bout you shoot Eric Anholt an email and ask him how his work is going. i mean hey it has been just over a year now since he moved to broadcom http://anholt.livejournal.com/44239.html
point is android works on pi (obviously only pi2) the only thing holding it back is the videocore drivers which as above are being worked on. and hey someone is already trying to turn a buck from running android on the raspberry pi even without the vc4 drivers. but people are still paying $9 a download to copy the file from this guy. just google RaspAND and RaspEX to read up on the dodgy yourself.
NEVER judge the user base by the forum. few people actually post to forums. hell i only created an account because i needed help with a piece of custom software (that i never got help with lol)
now on to topic specifically.
forum page does not display by default. its bugged and needs to be looked at. just because the forum is locked does not mean the page shouldnt be fixed so that any info displayed can still be easily read by whoever wishes to read it.DUUUHHH
after posting this i scroll thru to viewtopic.php?p=779165#p779165
and its already been locked. but this one hasnt been ? lol above post is 2 days old already been locked. this thread is from may and has gone ignored.
