ABOUT RaspAnd 13 – Build 230616
RaspAnd 13 runs very well on a Raspberry Pi 4. I.e. the system is pretty responsive if you use a micro SD card of good quality. RaspAnd 13 has the following apps pre-installed: Aptoide App Store, F-Droid Store (Free and Open Source App Repository), Spotify, Firefox Browser (so you can watch YouTube), Termux (terminal emulator), Clash of Clans and Aida64.

PLEASE NOTE that you must be aware of the fact that the Raspberry Pi 4 computer has its limitations and that Android 13 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.
Startup of RaspAnd 13 Build 230616
The first thing you will see on the screen is this boot animation.
If you do not see this animation you haven’t installed RaspAnd correctly on the SD card. (Please use Rufus 4.1 in Windows for the installation to the SD Card).
You can find my sources for RaspAnd 13 here. Following those instructions you can build your own “RaspAnd” system.
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.

You’ll have to use the 3.5mm jack and connect speakers. Press the F9 key on your keyboard to increase the volume. And F8 to lower the volume.
MORE NEWS 230616 ABOUT RaspAnd 13
RaspAnd 13 can be installed to a Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) in Windows 10/11 using Rufus, Win32 Disk Imager or Etcher. You can alternatively (of course) use the dd-command in a Linux system. Unzip the downloaded file raspand-android-13-rpi4-1260mb-230616.zip. Then open a terminal and run the command dd if=raspand-android-13-rpi4-8600mb-230616.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4MiB
(Change X to b, d or…).
Using Rufus it will look like this.
Using GParted to increase the data partition
As I said above RaspAnd 13 can be installed in Windows using Rufus, Win32 Disk Imager or Etcher. This method has one disadvantage. Only about about 5GB can be used as data storage no matter which card you use. Now say, for example, that you use Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) of 128GB about 123GB will be “wasted”. You can, however, change that with the help of GParted. See below how to do it.
How to get rid of the 5GB limit after Rufus, Win32 Disk Imager or Etcher has been used:
– write the image with Rufus, Win32 Disk Imager or Etcher
– start up Ubuntu or another Linux system – you can also use a Linux Live CD/USB stick
– insert your card
– start GParted – screenshot before resizing
– resize the DATA partition – screenshot after resizing
Or watch this screenshot – see below.
Kernel 5.15.92-v8+ is used in RaspAnd 13 Build 230616.
The newer versions of RaspAnd has excellent support for WiFi (on Raspberry Pi 4, 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. Just go to Settings/Network and connect.
