Android for the Pandora has been working out so well for me. I am so glad this came to light. Since Plum for the Pandora could not do photos, I downloaded

a DNLA program for Android that works great for photos and video. I have not really used this for games only actual applications.

Sorry to be a dope, but I've looked in the repo, the wiki and here, but I don't see any information on how to install apps like Netflix. The Android pnd runs fine and I got networking setup. As there is no app for the play store on the Android desktop, I used the browser, but it doesn't recognize my device (it lists my Nexus) so I can't install via that method. I found an apk via the web, but can't seem to download. Obviously others have done it, please point me in the right direction.

^Looks to be a corrupted PND, have you tried re-downloading it?

I dont know what happend, but it wont start here anymore.

Works great for weeks, but now ...

I rename the folder android_gingerbreed to android_gingerbread_old and start it again. The programm asked my for the memorysize again, created a new folder and then it didnt start, like the installation before. :(

Whats wrong here?

Is there no one willing or able to port a more recent version of Android to our beloved device? Also, did anyone get bluetooth to work?
Anything newer than Gingerbread is most likely too resource hungry for the Pandora. I have not been able to get bluetooth working myself.

That's too bad :( There's many good apps that used to work but are updated in the playstore and thus not available for gingerbread anymore.

I thought Android kitkat was more optimized and also good for slower devices.. guess I was wrong :-/

The Q88 uses an AllWinner A13 and it's a tad more powerful than the Ti OMAP 3530 (CC, rebirth) or Ti DM3730 (1Ghz ). Not saying it can't run it, but It's not going to be that great of an experience.

Where does the beaglebone rank? It has a Jellybean image available I think.

I've gathered it's using a similarly specked SoC as the Pandora ( AM3358 ) the difference between the Black version is a higher default clock speed 1Ghz vs 720Mhz and 512MB of RAM vs 256MB in the non-black version.  Have you seen this beaglebone version used? It's curious that none of the videos I've seen on youtube show any applications being ran, just it booting up and some simple navigation of the menus.

No idea how it runs. Only saw reference to the image on the omap wiki.
