See Fruitolooms reply (from 2 years ago!) above. Android is not a supported OS on this forum.

The reply you have had from the developer/maintainer of an Android distribution for the Raspberry Pi is obviously very relevant.

But as an aside...

If you got your board 'used' from an auction site I would suggest making sure it will boot a standard unmodified version of the Raspberry Pi recommended Raspbian Operating System as a first confidence-building test of your hardware...

Because if by any chance your board has been misused and is now faulty it would be good to clarify that at the outset using the officially supported Operating System, before introducing the additional complexity of a third-party, user-supported, Operating System.
