RaspAnd is updated and with it the version of Android that is available for Raspberry Pi

RaspAnd

A few days ago a developer introduced us your work with Raspberry Pi and the latest version of Android, a project that made Android Nougat work on Raspberry Pi 3, but this project was not very optimized and it was not focused on the end user, who had neither the Play Store nor the GAPPS.

For these problems, the user has to use versions or roms of Android created for Raspberry Pi. The most famous of them all is RaspAnd, an operating system created for Raspberry Pi by Arné Exton who has updated the project incorporating the latest version of Android Marshmallow, Android 6.0.1.

This version is known within the official project as Build 160 915, a very special build since it not only has the latest Android but also is optimized for use with Raspberry Pi 3 although it is compatible with old models. RaspAnd distribution comes with the Play Store and the GAPPS, something that many Android users look for and use on a daily basis. Also access to the Aptoide appstore has been removed, a package that was giving users and distribution quite a few problems.

RaspAnd incorporates the GAPPS so that the user does not have to do it 'by hand'

The rest of the apps are the same as in the previous version since the central focus of development has been optimize RaspAnd operation as much as possible on Raspberry Pi 3 and 2.

Those who want to try this version of Android for Raspberry Pi, can get the installation image at the official website, but it is advised and recommended to use a class 10 microsd or sd card so that the operating system can operate smoothly. If it is not urgent, you can also choose to buy a card with RaspAnd installed, something that will cost very little and with which you will help the project to move forward.
