RaspAnd Pie 9 for Raspberry Pi 3 B and B+ :: Build 190429 and 190315 :: with Google Chrome, YouTube, Yalp Store, Aptoide App Manager and Evie Launcher. All working very well!

ABOUT RaspAnd Pie 9 – a new extra build 190429
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 Build 190429 has the following apps pre-installed: Google Chrome, Yalp Store, Aptoide App Manager, Aida64, Rotation Control, Evie Launcher, Termux and ES File Explorer. Unfortunately not Google Play Store, but Yalp Store and Aptoide work as good replacements for it.

Differences
My first RaspAnd Pie Build is from 190315. In Build 190429 I’ve added Yalp Store and replaced Nova Launcher with Evie Launcher. You will get both builds of RaspAnd Pie 9.0 for $ 9.

About Yalp Store
Yalp Store lets you download apps directly from Google Play Store as apk files. It can search for updates of installed apps and lets you search for other apps. The point of Yalp Store is to be small and independent from Google Services Framework. By default Yalp Store connects to Google services using a built-in account, so you do not have to own a Google account to use it. The only reason to use a live Google account is to access the paid apps you own or leave reviews. So Yalp Store works as a pretty good replacement for Google Play Store. I think.

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.

MORE NEWS 190429 ABOUT RaspAnd Pie 9
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. You can alternatively (of course) use the dd-command in a Linux system. Unzip the downloaded file raspand-pie-9.0-chrome-youtube-yalp-aptoide-372mb-190429.zip. Then open a terminal and run the command dd if=raspand-pie-9.0-chrome-youtube-yalp-aptoide-4000mb-190429.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4MiB
(Change X to b, d or…).

Using Rufus it will look like this.

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).

You shall see the boot animation below when RaspAnd Pie start up on your Raspberry Pi 3. If not something is wrong. Please try again and install RaspAnd the way I’ve described above.


Kernel

Kernel 4.14.61 is used in RaspAnd Pie Build 190429 and 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.

    Can’t run in 1080p Display size.

  2. cf says:

    Was hoping for a new release with working bluetooth. Is there any chance….?

  3. CAMUS says:

    Hi exton,

    I was trying to install quick reboot on raspand pi 9
    Boot need root to work.
    How can I perform it ?

    • exton says:

      Try this: Go to Settings/Developer options and enable Root access. To be able to do that you’ll have to enable Developer options first. Go to Settings/About table and click on “Build number” about six times.

      This works for RaspAnd Nougat Build 180529. I’m not sure that it works for RaspAnd Pie. (The systems are not built in the same way).

      • CAMUS says:

        Thank you Exton
        That’s precisally what I’ve done.
        But know what ?
        There is no reference to root switch available from top to bottom
        Disappointing

        • Mark says:

          Hi,

          Did you manage activate root on this build?

          • Javier says:

            I have the same issue. I need root but this build is not rooted and there is no option to activate/deactivate root on developer options.

            Any idea?

            Thanks in advance!

          • exton says:

            Unfortunately not. You are a “developer” as this screenshot shows. But under Settings >>> Developer options you can’t choose to become root (as you can in RaspAnd Nougat). Maybe in the next version of RaspAnd Pie…

        • exton says:

          You are unfortunately right.

          You are a “developer” when running RaspAnd Pie as this screenshot shows. But under Settings >>> Developer options you can’t choose to become root (as you can in RaspAnd Nougat). Maybe in the next version of RaspAnd Pie…

  4. Cleiton Bedin says:

    Hey, guys
    I had some problem.
    The initial animation keeps running forever.

  5. Dave says:

    it is possible to change the resolution to 480×800 and rotate the screen to portrait so that it can be used on a waveshare 4.3″ lcd? If yes – how?

  6. Joel says:

    it does not work with the touchscreen but only via hdmi or is that a mistake with me? Thank you

    • exton says:

      You may have to do these changes.

      boot/config.txt shall look like this.

      hdmi_force_hotplug=1
      hdmi_drive=2
      hdmi_group=2
      hdmi_mode=87

      hdmi_cvt=800 480 60 6 0 0 0
      kernel=zImage
      dtparam=audio=on
      dtparam=i2c1=on
      dtparam=i2c_arm=on
      dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d,cma-256
      dtoverlay=i2c-rtc,ds3231
      dtoverlay=rpi-backlight
      dtoverlay=rpi-ft5406
      initramfs ramdisk.img 0x01f00000
      mask_gpu_interrupt0=0x400
      avoid_warnings=2
      enable_uart=1

      Also change system/build.prop like this.

      Remove: debug.drm.mode.force=1280×720
      Add: ril.function.dataonly=1

      • Edoardo says:

        Freshly created SD with rufus (Win10).
        Applied (using a linux machine) reported changes to

        – rpiboot (partition) config.txt
        => appended mentioned configuration

        – / (partition) system/build.prop
        => Remove: debug.drm.mode.force=1280×720 (already not present
        => Added: ril.function.dataonly=1

        It doesn’t work for me.
        It works if connected to external HDMI, but RPi 7″ official touchscreen is always black.

        Am I doing anything wrong?

        Using a Samsung MicroSD EVO 16GB Class 10 on RPi 3 B+ on Official RPi 7″ Touchscreen.

      • Edoardo Parlato says:

        Instructions above don’t work for me.

        Modified rpiboot/config.txt appending your section.
        In /system/build.prop “debug.drm.mode.force=1280×720” was already not present and appended “ril.function.dataonly=1”.

        Using this setup
        – RPi 3 Model B+
        – Samsung MicroSD EVO 16GB Class 10
        – Official RPi 7″ touchscreen

        When connected to an external HDMI screen it works like a charm, but official RPi touchscreen is Always black

  7. Brandon says:

    Is it possible to USB boot? I can only get it to boot using a micro sd but it is possible to usb boot on the pi 3.

  8. Iwan says:

    Hi guys have RaspAnd Pie 9 on pi 3B + runs fine but the problem is the memory. How can I extend that? Can not someone help me? Thank you.

  9. ppoeas1 says:

    Black screen on RAspberry official Touchscreen, how to fix that?

  10. Ben says:

    Is LAN also working or just WIFI?

  16. Davistro says:

    Hello I want to know if Amazon prime video and Movistar+ run in this distribution, in really I want to buy that, but first I want to know if run, please send me screen shots

    • exton says:

      I don’t think so since you can’t run Netflix. I can’t check out Amazon prime video and Movistar+ myself.

  17. Markus says:

    I want to run an application I bought in Playstore.
    As I assume from reading here, it is possible to get it via YALP Store also.
    When I started it back then without Playstore and Play Services it said it needs Play Services to run. Do you think it will run on this Android with YALP? There are no Play Services, right?

    And: No news on rooting it ? In order to get those installed via GAPPs…

    thanks

    • exton says:

      I have not yet been able to include Google Play Services. So all apps (nor so many), which are dependent on Google Play Services won’t run.

      RaspAnd Pie is also not yet rooted. Perhaps the next version…

  18. Pankaj says:

    I sideloaded my app on this. It’s a simple app with a few screens and It doesn’t run on it.

    It simply doesn’t start. What could be the issue?

  19. Brian B says:

    Will Pandora or Amazon music apps be working?

  20. Brian B says:

    How do get sound to play through hdmi on the raspberry pi3?

  21. Hi. The sound does not work. It only works if I start the Raspberry 3B + without the HDMI cable but with a handset connected to the analog output. then I connect the HDMI cable and the device restarts. In this way, the sound comes out only through the handset. this is the only way I can get sound.

  22. Alec says:

    hmm i cannot seem to get it to run i flashed the “raspand-pie-9.0-chrome-youtube-yalp-aptoide-372mb-.zip (0.36 GB)” img and when i started it up it just gives that little colour screen then nothing afterwards. i tried twice with etcher then rufus. i used to have android 7 running on it from enteria

  23. Köttbullar och mos says:

    Hej,

    Tack för den builden!

    Jag köpte den igår och försökte komma igång med YouTube Vanced appen (försöker kringgå annonser i YouTube). Problemet som jag får är att systemet blir rätt hackig (alltså den hänger sig med jämna mellanrum) och att inget ljud eller video kommer ut via HDMI. Videon spelas, men jag varken ser eller hör något från den.

    Vet du vad det skulle kunna vara? Har för övrigt RPI 3b+.

  24. Rodrigo says:

    Does this system come with active root?

  25. Nigel says:

    Hello,
    Got everything running! it all works perfectly except: how do I resize the user partition to take the remaining space on a 64 GB card? I tried gparted but Android wouldn’t boot after that. Help! and thanks again, great software.

    • exton says:

      If it is about RaspAnd Pie I haven’t figured out that yet. The Pie version is compiled in another way than for example the Nougat version.
