RaspAnd Pie 9 for Raspberry Pi 3 B and B+ :: Build 190315 :: with Google Chrome, YouTube and Aptoide App Manager working very well!

ABOUT RaspAnd Pie 9 – Build 190315
RaspAnd Pie 9 runs very well on a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and 3 Model B+. I.e. the system is pretty responsive if you use a micro SD card of good quality. RaspAnd Pie has the following apps pre-installed: Google Chrome, Aptoide App Manager, Aida64, Rotation Control Pro, Nova Launcher, Termux and ES File Explorer. Unfortunately not Google Play Store, but Aptoide works as a good replacement for it.

My sources
You can find my sources for RaspAnd Pie at brobwind.com. From there you can also download the “original” image from 190302, which was compiled by the man behind brobwind.com. He calls himself hazak – a Chinese IT engineer. Following hazak’s instructions you can compile your own Android Pie 9 system for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+.

What is Raspberry Pi?

The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.

RaspAnd Pie 9 can be installed to a Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) in Windows 10 using Win32 Disk Imager, Etcher or Rufus.

Different Micro SD Cards
For best performance you should use SD Cards of good quality. I can recommend Samsung MicroSD Pro Plus 32GB Class 10. Write speed up to 95 MB/s. Also Samsung MicroSD EVO 16GB Class 10. Write speed up to 48 MB/s. Price 47 $ respectively 10 $ (in Sweden).

Kernel

Kernel 4.14.61 is used in RaspAnd Pie Build 190315.

Wifi support
The newer versions of RaspAnd has excellent support for Wifi (on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Model B+). Previous problems with the Wifi connection are gone. I.e. the Wifi connection will automatically be re-established after every reboot.

Sound settings
The sound is generally good while running RaspAnd Oreo. Go to Settings >> Sound and change the Media volume – screenshot.

Spotify
Spotify works very well in RaspAnd Pie. Just log in and play your favorite music! Install Spotify via Aptoide App Manager. It can look like this.

NOTE/WARNING
PLEASE NOTE
that you must be aware of the fact that the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and Model B+ computer has its limitations and that Android Pie 9 is a very advanced Linux system. Having said that I must also say that the apps I have included in this Build (see above) work very well.
