Raspberry Pi gets Ice Cream Sandwich

Raspberry Pi gets Android 40 up and running, embarrasses large corporations

Raspberry Pi has a myriad of devoted developers working on different projects utilizing the little pastry named PC, and the latest news is that it's got Android running on the little devil.


This early version is reportedly working smoothly, with hardware-accelerated graphics operational. The developer is still working on adding support for AudioFlinger, Android's native audio software. This Raspberry-flavored Ice Cream Sandwich apparently runs on both a kernel and VideoCore binary image that's currently not publicly available. The team is still looking into whether the two code lines can be wrapped into a single entity before it offers up the source to its users. Head over to the source story at Engadget to see how the experimental pairing fares in a quick video runthrough after the break.
