Check out the new MinnowBoard.org website for the most up-to-date information on the MinnowBoard Turbot and the MinnowBoard.org Community.
The https://01.org/android-ia site provides open source releases of Android* 5.0, 5.1 and 5.1.1 Lollipop reference code that is ported and optimized for MinnowBoard MAX and Turbot. These releases use a 64-bit kernel and a 32-bit userspace, and they support all the MinnowBoard Max/Turbot on-board peripherals such as Ethernet, HDMI (digital audio + video), USB host, SATA, I2C+SPI, GPIO, PWM and UART.
Note: This reference code is intended for developers interested in working with Android* OS on MinnowBoard MAX and Turbot. However, it does not have all the components to meet the Android Compatibility requirements for creating a complete Android tablet or smartphone solution.
- You can use a pre-built image: 01.org Android-IA Downloads Page
- Or, you could build your own Android OS image, but the code has become stale in our view. See below update.
CODE SUPPORT UPDATE (Jan 2017)
- As established in Dec 12th Github issue the Android 5.x releases discussed above are no longer supported by the team at Intel.
- The MinnowBoard team is projecting that we might be able to revive mature Android support beginning with MinnowBoard 3 later in 2017. There are no commitments yet, but we have submitted the appeal to the Android-IA team via 01.org. Check the new website to see if an Android tutorial has been added.
