Android Things on the Dragonboard?


#1

Hey folks,
Is there any plans for a port of Android Things to the Dragonboard?

Much as full featured Android is a great asset on the Dragonboard, I had a lot of trouble with the lack of clear and easy API for controlling the hardware interfaces, something that Android Things has nailed pretty nicely.

I’m currently using a Raspberry Pi 3 with Android Things and I’d love to be able to use my Dragonboard as well.

Just found this, so I take it that it will!? Does anyone have an ETA?

There is a Brillo port: https://developer.qualcomm.com/download/db410c/dragonboard410c_brillo-v2.1.tar.gz

Not really sure what APIs have changed between the Brillo developer previews and the Android Things ones…

Hey thanks @danielt, I’ll definitely check that out. Hopefully there’s isn’t too much effort until the latest release of Things is ported then.

Hi Vinay

I’m afraid I only know that it exists! I’ve never tried to use it (and I can’t remember any HOWTOs or other success reports being previously posted to the forum.

Sorry.
