Guess, the new Android 11 will be here with the Raspberry Pi 4 via OmniROM. Here are the perks you might need to experience.
Android 11 has been anticipated by many Android enthusiasts for months, and it was just recently released this month. As it was installed, users and developers uncovered that the latest operating system is running on Raspberry Pi 4 via OmniROM.
The maxwen of XDA-Developers designed this impressive combination. This OS is available for download today. And the OmniROM port works well and only has minimal broken features. The Raspberry Pi is said to be not intended to work with any Android, but it gave a stable result and runs with the updated features as it was tested.
However, the OmniROM doesn’t really support accelerated video playback or screencast features. It’s actually even stuck in “tablet mode,” where it should be the Android TV mode. It was also reported that some graphics are a bit disappointing for the Mesa support for V3D is still a work in progress. It’s far away from being perfect, but the update will be soon.
It was also reported that OmniROM is updated and tested weekly. This also currently works with standard GApps packages. It supports both USB and microSD booting through a tweakable config.txt file.
The first Android likely to have this feature would be the upcoming Google Pixel Series. For the reason, that these are the only Android phone that Google has direct control, which they can also update automatically. It is said the newer your Android phone is, the more it’s likely to have the Android 11.
As for the XDA Developers, they are currently maintaining the Android 11 Update tracker. It’s a database whether the device is receiving the stable test and updates out of the beta version.
