How to install Android on a Raspberry Pi

Probablemente sea una de las noticias más destacadas de la semana: Ya se ha presentado la Raspberry Pi 2.

For those who don't know what it is, Raspberry Pi It is a small computer that has all the necessary components built-in. This new model features 1GB of RAM, processor of four cores to 900 MHz and the typical outputs USB, HDMI and Ethernet.

The Raspberry Pi Opens a world of possibilities and Android is one of these possibilities. Not in vain, in terms of Hardware is similar to many of the low-end devices, so in theory should run without problems. Today I will explain how to operate Android in your Raspberry Pi.

Getting underway

The first thing we need to install Android in a Raspberry Pi is, as it is logical, the own Raspberry Pi (Gracias, capitán obvio).

Once we have this the next thing we will need is the ROM you want to install. CyanogenMod is the most widely used for this 7.2, which is adapted to be able to settle in a Raspberry Pi. Finally, What we need is an SD card of 4GB or more formatted in FAT32 which enter the ROM we will have previously downloaded.

While it is true that CyanogenMod 7.2 It is a version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, to be an adapted version to Raspberry Pi will work better than any other. It is also true the fact that now that this platform has been updated would not be weird thinking that it is possible that a new version of Android You can get to become as stable as this version. Who knows, Perhaps in this new version Android Lollipop works great.

When we already have everything ready, the process to be followed may be different depending on each operating system.
