Anyone owns cm3

Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:34 am

I am looking for someone who owns a compute module 3 and is willing to test android on that, nothing much, just boot the image and let me know if it boots up fine.
PS my image is an 8gig one so the io board will also be necessary.

Arguably this thread needs to be move one of two places.
If I move this to Android then it will be automatically locked.
If I move it to Compute Module, then at least it'll get some attention....
I suggest you ask the same here : https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/android-rpi

Was going to try this, but don't have a CM3L which is required as the CM3 doesn't have enough flash to run Android.

Here is the link http://geektillithertz.com/wordpress/in ... id-nougat/
The data partition is around 5.5gb, you can shrink it down to make the image fit. Boot partition is 512mb, system is 1024m and cache is another 512. So shrinking the data partition should work.

Don't have time to do that I'm afraid. Need to have a quick and easy flash/test process.

I'll try to get you a 4gig image in maybe a few hours or so.

You order up to 1084 of them from http://uk.farnell.com/raspberry-pi/rpi- ... dp/2675717, and a further 1269 from http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/processor ... s/1232012/# That should keep you going for a while. (Numbers correct at the time of posting).

Perhaps James should have said "don't have a CM3L to hand" (and nor do I, only CM3 or CM1). There will be some in the office should there be a pressing need for one.

I have a CM3L. It arrived early last week. What I don't have is a CM3 or a CMIO 3 board.

Android is not a supported OS, so whilst i could spend time digging up a CM3L then spending more time getting it all going, I'd be spending RPF time on something they are not really paying me for! So quick and easy would be preferable.

Hmmm, let me guess what that might have been.

I'd say something small in size and big on functionality.

Sorry, just not had time to look at this. Been very busy sorting out documentation along with other tasks.

I'll put it on my list of stuff to try.

Hello,

I know it's a long time ago, but could I test your android image for CM3 (download link is broken) ?

Thanks,
