RaspAnd – Build 3 150924/160315 – with Google Play Store

logoNEWS about RaspAnd Lollipop 160315
I have uploaded a new version of RaspAnd Lollipop, which can run also on the new Raspberry Pi 3 computer. It is basically the same system as before. Only the boot parameters are changed.

About RaspAnd Lollipop 150924
I have finally managed to include Google Play Store in RaspAnd and most important Google Play Services.

NEWS 150924
I have compiled yet another Android 5.1 Lollipop system which can run on Raspberry Pi 2. I call “my” new system RaspAnd Build 3. My first version of RaspAnd is from 150405 and my second from 150527. The following useful apps are pre-installed in Build 3 of 150924: Google Play Store, Aptoide App Manager (as an alternative to Google Play Store), Terminal Emulator, AIDA64, Geekbench, WinZip, FileManager, Rotation Control Lite, WPS Office and Offline Maps. Google Play Store, AIDA64 and Geekbench were not included in Build 2 from 150527.

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.

RASPBERRY_PI_2-small
Raspberry Pi 3 model B made in February 2016. It has a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU and 1GB RAM. Read more…

Kernel
Kernel 3.19.0-exton-v7+ is used in RaspAnd.

My sources
You’ll find my sources for RaspAnd here.

How do I install RaspAnd?
Almost like any other Raspberry Pi system. The installation has to take place in Linux though. (From hard drive or while running a live Linux system from cd or a USB stick). Follow this instruction. The whole thing has to be done exactly like this.
1. Unpack the downloaded tar.gz-file (raspand-lollipop-5.1-rpi3-googleplay-435mb-160315.tar.gz). You will get the folder raspand-lollipop-5.1-160314 with the folder boot and the system file system.img
2. Create four partitions of/on your Micro SD Card with Fdisk or GParted.
a) Part 1 for BOOT of 512 MB ; format as fat32 ; flag as boot
b) Part 2 for /system of 1024 MB; any filesystem
c) Part 3 for /cache of 512 MB ; format as ext4
d) Part 4 for /data; size the remain; format as ext4
When you are done with partitioning it shall look like this.
raspand-gparted-150923
3. Now open up a terminal as root and run this command (make sure which name your SD card was given when you inserted it (/dev/sdb2 or /dev/sdc2 or as in the example here /dev/sdd2):
dd if=system.img of=/dev/sdd2 bs=1M
(Note: When you run the above command you’ll have to stand in the folder raspand-lollipop-5.1-160314)
4. Then just copy every file in raspand-lollipop-5.1-160314/boot (20 files) to /dev/sdd1. If not mounted already you can mount it with mkdir /mnt/sdd1 followed by mount /dev/sdd1 /mnt/sdd1

Note: You shall not do anything with /dev/sdd3 and /dev/sdd4. I. e.: Do not create folder /cache or /data. Watch this screenshot of the file structure on all four partitions when the installation is done.

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).

Running RaspAnd – Slide show
Now just place your SD Card in your Raspberry Pi 3 or Pi 2 machine and turn on the power. Watch this Slide show.

Updates
Not many apps can be installed via Google Play Store. Luckily Aptoide App Manager can be used to install some Google apps, for instance Gmail.When you start upp Aptoide for the first time you will be asked to upgrade Aptoide. Do that. Then try to install Gmail via Aptoide. You will be asked to upgrade Google Play Services to version 8.7.03 (2645110-836) – latest version. Do that. When done you can install Gmail and other Google apps without problems.

Screenshot 1 – Google Play Store running

Screenshot 2 – RaspAnd’s Desktop

Screenshot 3 – Google Play Services updating

Screenshot 4 – Google Play Store updating with Aptoide

NOTE/WARNING – 1
You’ll have to be aware of the fact that while running RaspAnd on Raspberry Pi 3 or Pi 2 not many apps can be found on Google Play Store. Because Google Play Services is installed many useful apps (for example Gmail) can be installed with Aptoide App Manager though.

NOTE/WARNING – 2
Wifi and Bluetooth can’t be used. You’ll have to have and use a wired connection.

Compatibility :: June 2016
Unfortunately not all systems made for Raspberry Pi 2 will run on the new Pi 3. They need to be upgraded with a new kernel. I therefore have to upgrade the systems I distribute. I.e. RaspEX, RaspEX with OpenCPN, RaspAnd Loppipop, RaspAnd Marshmallow  and RaspArch. I have now (160625) upgraded all systems. Read about the new Raspberry Pi 3…

So, please be aware of the fact that RaspAnd Build 3 from 150924 will work only on Raspberry Pi 2. The new RaspAnd Lollipop version from 160315 (of Build 3 with different boot parameters) will work also on Raspberry Pi 3.

  2. Gianluca says:

    I want to connect 480×320 LCD Touchscreen display to it via the spi interface. This one: http://www.amazon.com/Tontec%C2%AE-Raspberry-Display-Touchscreen-Transparent/dp/B00NANNJLQ/
    Is it possible? Can RaspAnd support lcd display with spi interface?

  3. Isaac says:

    I followed the instructions, but nothing is booting up on the RPi.

    • exton says:

      You must have done something wrong since all Raspberry Pi 2 are the same. If you are sure you have done it correctly you should try with another monitor.

      • Isaac says:

        Here’s what I did…

        – created 4 paritions with gparted
        – gave each one the size stated and flagged the first one as “boot”
        – ran this cmd on /dev/sdd2 ‘dd if=system.img of=/dev/sdd2 bs=1M’
        – mounted the /dev/sdd1 partition
        – copied over all the files in boot to /dev/sdd1
        – put sd card in raspberry pi
        – *** nothing boots up ***

        I did notice that it looked like permissions changed for the /boot/* files because /dev/sdd1 is fat32.

        • Isaac says:

          I was able to get it working. The problem was from me mounting it to a directory owned by root. That seemed to change the permissions up on the files, which resulted in it not booting up correctly.

  4. Socrates says:

    Exton, good afternoon. After the purchase and installed on my Raspberry, if you release a new version. How will the upgrade? Updates will be included in the amount that was paid? How do we know you hear a new update? We will be notified by e-mail?

    Is there a default monitor size that this needs to be ran on? I have my RPi hooked up to my TV and I can’t get off the Search screen.

  7. Isaac says:

    How do I go “back” or “home”? Every time I click on something, like “settings”, I get stuck and can’t get out of it.

  14. tuxglux says:

    i didn’t get it booting up – screen keeps gray/black. isaac wrote something about file permissions in boot – how could this be fixed. Could you be so kind to put the fat32 partition also in an image file?
    Thanks

    • exton says:

      You have to get help from someone who knows a little about Linux. I.e. I can’t write a better instruction than the one present.

      I can’t “put the fat32 partition” in an image file.

      • tuxglux says:

        Thanks, solved the problem – order of partitions caused the failure. I had to create them new in the correct order. Now Android is booting up.

  15. jacopo says:

    hi, it works with standard wifi dongle for raspberry pi 2? And is it compatible with digi HIFI Dac as audio output??

    • exton says:

      No, I don’t think so. You’ll have to use a wired connection. My dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) doesn’t work and I’ve haven’t heard anything about others.

      HIFI Dac: I can’t say for sure.

      • Blake says:

        Are there drivers or something that can use to run WiFi dongle? WiFi is quite important in my project.

        • exton says:

          Blake,

          As I said before: You’ll have to use a wired connection. My dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) doesn’t work and I haven’t heard anything about others.

    Can I run it in Pi 1 instead of 2?

  17. Gustavo says:

    How can you use it with a Touchscreen device?
    It only displays image via HDMI, when a screen is connected via DISPLAY flat, no image appears.

    • Nathan says:

      Any answer to this question? I also have the 7″ Raspberry Pi touchscreen and a paid for version of RaspAnd but can’t get any image on the screen. So far I cannot find any definitive answer to the question “how can I use the DSI cable and not HDMI”

  18. laurent says:

    Hello, how i do to have a dual boot on my raspberry pi 2 with raspand and raspEx (or another ubuntu release)?
    Thanks

  19. exton says:

    I know already. It doesn’t work. Too many dependencies.

  20. Charles says:

    Hi,

    I have seen this question asked but not answered. I was able to install and boot it up, but there is no sound. Is there a config parameter somewhere that controls the sound? or is this still a bug that you are working on?

    Also I find the screen resolution works best with the existing setting (1280×720.) on the config.txt under /boot. Someone mentioned the full HD setting (1920×1080) is too slow, and I find that to be true as well. If the 720 setting leaves certain areas on the edge of the TV hidden from view, the TV settings can usually be adjusted to fix that. For example, on my Sony TV, there is a setting that deals with the display area, and one can adjust that to make it display the whole screen, and it’s pretty good after that.

    Certain apps downloaded from the Play store are not stable, and crash often (youtube being one of them; of course w/o the sound it’s pretty useless anyway)

    • exton says:

      Sound: It depends entirely on which monitor with built in speakers you use.

      • Blake says:

        Does the sound only work through HDMI?

      • Charles says:

        exton – this is not a new monitor/sound combination that has not been verified to work before. This is the same Rasberry setup that I used to boot up Rasbian or OSMC, and I have been using the OSMC to stream videos for a while. So I booted up with RaspAnd on a separate SD card, with the same HDMI cable and ethernet cable connections as OSMC, but no sound for RaspAnd. (I would have liked RaspAnd and the other OSes on the same SD card managed by NOOB, but you mentioned this cannot be done. So RaspAnd is on its own SD card for now.)
        I can continue to tinker, but I can think of nothing else why there is no sound.

        • exton says:

          Charles,

          You can’t compare Raspbian/RaspEX with RaspAnd. Totally different systems and kernels.

          • Charles says:

            exton – I am aware that these are very different systems and I am not comparing them, other than pointing out that one (OSMC) is sending the video/audio signals thru the HDMI connection and I am seeing the video and hearing the audio, while the other (RaspAnd) is sending video/audio thru the same HDMI connection, and I am seeing the video but not hearing the audio.
            Any ideas?

          • exton says:

            Charles,

            Ok, but the only reason I can think of is that the kernel in RaspAnd lacks support for your special monitor (audio). You can try with another monitor.

    Hi, I think that it hasn’t supported a wifi adapter in Build 3, right? If I want ot connect to the Internet, I have to use a wired connection?

    • exton says:

      Adapter? As I said before: You’ll have to use a wired connection. My dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) doesn’t work and I haven’t heard anything about other dongles.

When i turn on RPI with LCD it seems donesn’t start but if i connect the RPI with an HDMI cable to a TV i see and run all. I’m a newbi and after two weeks i don’t understand how to see all only on LCD. May you help me? thank you

    Hi. This installed fine but a couple of questions.

    1. how do I pull down the shade? I can’t get that to work with mouse.

    2. Where is the “Users” option in settings? I needed to get Android on to a Raspberry Pi to debug and test thing with restricted accounts and multiple users on Android. The download will be useless to me if it doesn’t have the Users option.

  28. Artie says:

    Followed all instructions multiple times. File sizes on th SD card seem to be correct. Yet when I plug in, I only get

    android

    On the center of the screen. Nothing else.

    Any ideas?

    • exton says:

      Yes, you haven’t done it correctly. Try again.

      Or try with another monitor.

    • Marcus says:

      Did you solve the problem?
      I get the same thing, tried 2 different monitors (tv and projector)

      • Alex says:

        I get the exact same problem, and I tried installing multiple times on multiple different RPI2 devices with different screens. Nothing seems to get this past the static android logo. I let the device try to load for about an hour, thinking maybe its just really slow and that didn’t work either.

        Has anyone figured out this issue yet?

        It’s not a matter of order or a matter of folder/path permissions, because I tried many different combinations of setting this up and still had the exact same results with each of them. I feel it has something to do with the boot definition files and not referencing the images path correct.

        • exton says:

          Figure out? Nothing to figure out. Just follow my install instructions EXACTLY. Since all Raspberry Pi 2 computers are the same it must work also for you.
          Do everything as root.

          • Alex says:

            I managed to figure out what the issue was.

            I followed the instructions (ran through them several times). However, I found that when writing the system.img file to the path, the command (dd if=system.img of=/dev/sdd2 bs=1M) was not filling up the entire 1GB path. It would write the image to the path and mark the /dev/sdd2 path to be the size of the image (i believe about 600MB) and not the full 1GB.

            I noticed this using Gparted, where it told me there was a problem and did a drive check to correct it. Once the drive check completed (and fixed) in Gparted, the image booted correct.

          • exton says:

            Alex,

            Thanks for your report. I don’t like mysteries. Glad that everything is alright now.

  33. John Harper says:

    Getting the image to boot:

    Follow the instructions in the order given UNTIL you mount the sdX1 partition.
    X = you fill in the small letter. Mine is “a”. Yours may differ

    create the mount point: sudo mkdir /mnt/sdX1
    change the ownership to pi: sudo chown pi /mnt/sdX1

    now, mount the partition: sudo mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt/sdX1
    Copy the contents of the boot folder into /mnt/sdX1

    unmount the sd card.

    Find and use a monitor with an HDMI port (you CANNOT use a DVI to HDMI adapter/cable for this).

    insert the SD card, connect the Pi 2 to an HDMI monitor, plug in your keyboard/mouse, connect the wired connection (mine worked without doing this) and power it up. You should see the word “Android” on your screen in about 10-25 seconds. Wait a few minutes, and the default screen should pop up.

    • exton says:

      John Harper,

      Thanks for sharing your solutions.

  53. PeterV says:

    I have used a Pi 3 running Debian to create the SD card for for Android on Pi 3.

    I purchased a microSD to UBS adaptor to plug the new microSD into the Pi 3.

    I loaded GPart from the Debian add software list and partitioned the MicroSD as recommended.

    I then copied the de-compressed RaspAnd folders to the Pi 3 so that I could then create the operating system from the image within the Pi 3

    The only difference from instructions is the need to run the image build instruction with “sudo”. Hence my instruction line in the terminal was:

    sudo dd if=system.img of=/dev/sda2 bs=1M

    Transferring the new microSD to the PI 3, and powering up..and away we go.

    Booting up takes a few minutes, but once running speeds are reasonably acceptable.

    I can’t get the wifi or bluetooth working yet but the rest of it runs pretty well.

    I have tried a couple of my own Android Apps, and they work well. My home brewed file manager does not work yet but the reasons are obvious, so a little re-writing should fix..

    A good result..

    I can add raspand to noobs or berryboot? if the answer is yes, as is done?

  55. Pablo says:

    I have installed raspand-lollipop-5.1-160314 in a raspberry pi 3 and not connected to the Internet (ethernet connection) or have option to configure wifi. With raspbian I do not have that problem

      You must run the command as root and you must (of course) stand in the folder where you have system.img.

      DON’T use Sudo!

    I am very pleased with your Android implementation for Raspberry Pi 3. For someone like me who progams a bit in Android, but not Linux, your solution is a breath of fresh air..

    My apps that don’t use phone or tablet hardware eg GPS or tilt detection work well. By the way I create my Android apps with B4A.. works a treat.

    My guitar making apps all work after a little modification to accomodate the Pi’s screen configuration. I hope to implement a stand-alone acoustic measurement device. Many of our calculations involve doing something with a detected musical note (frequency) so I am hoping I can get my FFT tuner app to work. It sort of works in a tablet but more work needed.

    Thank goodness for the little app to fix screen rotations.. It works most times if started as a service. Some of the apps I have installed force portrait orientation which is useless for a desk-top monitor.. they are saved by the rotation fixer app.

    Some bugs and “nice to haves” in RaspAnd for Pi 3

    Bugs:
    1: built in Gallery image app does not work. ES File image viewer is OK.
    2: back arrow (return to previous screen) does not work for most apps. (some do work)
    3: usb device detection tends to lock up. I tried a USB webcam (with a display app, “cameraFi”) with no result.. usb detection then failed for memory sticks. The app works with my webcam on Samsung Tablets.
    4: Google log-in app stops..
    5: Google Play auto-updates to a version that does not work, regardless of google play service version. The default version works once then it updates itself and crashes. Is there some way to prevent this auto-update..

    Nice to Haves:
    1: Wifi and Bluetooth (obvious)
    2: Right mouse button to have same effect as Esc key (back arrow). (as on all other Androids tested by me)
    3: Appropiate drivers to accept usb microphone. (these may already exist???)

    Thanks again for your great software..

      Peter,

      Thank you for your review and for all your suggestions. I will bear them in mind next time…

  58. Terry says:

    Success! Many thanks, Exton and PeterV. Lollipop 5.1 is running fine now. I did as PeterV suggested and used GParted on my Pi 3, having failed to get it going using Ubuntu running as a virtual machine on my Windows 10 laptop. I also have a LAN connection, so can finally get to the Android apps I wanted. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to like Lollipop 5.1, or maybe just the 160314 version. I do not know the precise problem, but they were written for a touch screen.

    Dear exton:

    There is no sound at all when running raspand. My raspberry is performing ok when it runs raspbian. So i think is a raspand related problem, not a tv set or raspberry problem.

    How can i diagnose this?

    • exton says:

      You should try with another monitor (with sound).

      • fernando says:

        Exton,

        i’m not using a monitor, i’m using a tv set connected by hdmi. Both of them, raspberry and TV set, are performing smoothly when running under raspbian+kodi

        Any ideas other than try another monitor with sound?

        • exton says:

          No. I’m sorry. It should work using all not too unusual TV sets and monitors.

          RaspAnd has nothing to do with Raspbian. (Different systems and kernels).

  60. Dave says:

    Have a couple questions.
    I am using live linux system on a cd.
    How do I use GParted on a live linux system on cd? or should I switch to a usb stick?

  61. Patrick says:

    I have 2 questions: (which i posted also yesterday but that post seems to got lost?)

    1) Does Tasker work (100%) on RaspAND?
    2) Does Google now (voice commands) work on RaspAND?

    Thnx!

  62. budi says:

    hello,
    is this build support the dsi driver port?
    for the lcd touchscreen original by raspi?

    i will be really excited if this is supported.

    thx

  63. Methanoid says:

    I ask this about each RaspAnd release… How have you tackled the lack of drivers from Broadcom for the Pi’s video chip? Do you have GPU acceleration disabled? As far as I know nobody has managed to get around this problem which is why Android is supposed to run so badly on Pi….

  64. Hi Exton,

    Wanted to know when can we expect Wifi and Bluetooth to work on Raspberry 3 model B. Need it for a project urgently.

    Thanks in Advance

    • exton says:

      Wifi and Bluetooth work right now in Marshmallow 6.0.1 on Rpi3, but the system is terribly slow.

      I hope this problem will be fixed very soon.

      • Amrit Kumar Pati says:

        could you help with link of marshmellow 6.0.1 with working playstore?

        • exton says:

          No, I can’t. I’m working on a Marshmallow version, but right now the system is so terribly slow that I don’t want to distribute it.

  65. banano says:

    Hi good afternoon , I would be interested in acquiring this OS , but would need to know what options GPS has, for example , with data connection could simulate a complete GPs ( internet + gps data location) ?
    I ‘m working on an app that works with GPS and detects the GPS spoofing , so the need only with connection for data would simulate a complete GPS .

    Please score on Antutu Benchmark ?

    Thanks !!!

    Does CEC work on RaspAND (i.e. using the TV remote to send keystrokes to the Pi through HDMI?)
