H3Droid - Android image specifically to work on Allwinner H3

Moderators: chensy, FATechsupport

Hello All!

For those who have not yet heard about our project, let us introduce H3Droid!

Image

H3Droid - an Android image developed specifically to work on Allwinner H3 devices!

The best part? It is FREE!

The only thing we ask for is feedback and if you are interested you can make donations to fund further updates and fixes to the project.

Please make sure to read through our F.A.Q. and review the notes on our download page before installation for the best results and to set appropriate expectations for this image!

We welcome any feedback you may have either in this thread or through the e-mail form on our page!

We have only recently started our testing for the NanoPi M1 and NanoPi M1 Plus and would welcome testers to help us perfect the image for these platforms! If you have time, we invite you to come to our IRC channel #H3droid on Freenode to chat with us!

Thanks in advance for trying our image and any feedback you can provide!


Cheers!
Just a quick note...

We are currently having issues getting the NanoPi M1 Plus to work right because we can't find a good FEX which activates the WiFi and gmac correctly. If anyone has a known good working FEX that will work with mainline u-boot, please feel free to share as this will help us to get things working for the NanoPi M1 Plus more quickly.

The NanoPi M1 is already know to work very well with this image using the opipc u-boot and nanopim1 fex, however, until version 1.2.7 is released you will need to manually change the DRAM setting in the FEX to '576' and recompile it for the best stability. If you need assistance with doing this, please feel free to stop by our IRC channel #H3droid on Freenode and chat with us!

Cheers!
Hello All!

Just wanted to make a quick update on the progress for NanoPi M1 Plus. With some outside help from a few volunteers who were gracious with their time and thanks to the guys from Armbian, we are about half way there! We have managed to get gmac or the 'gigabit ethernet' working on the NanoPi M1 Plus now, after spending some time with reviewing the kernel, u-boot and fex. We finally found some changes needed in the fex file to get things working.

While we have the ethernet working and are pretty sure this should be ready for the next release, the WiFi will be another story as it looks to need some software specific changes to work and we will need to work out how those will be integrated. Full functionality may be delayed until 1.2.8 (or later?) depending on how development goes over the next several weeks.

In the meantime if you would like help getting your board working and have at least a general understanding of use of Linux on one of these boards first, feel free to stop by our IRC Channel #H3Drooid on Freenode and we will try to help you as time allows!

Thanks everyone for their support! Remember, it is your feedback that drives our development, so please let us know your experience!

Have a great day!
The H3Droid Team
Hello All,

Just wanted to let you know we will be releasing H3Droid version 1.2.7 here shortly and give you an overview of what you can expect!

This is a pretty major release and adds some new features! Most importantly H3Resc (more to come on this upon release!), USB automount is fixed, support for FriendlyArm H3 boards and an easier installation process!

New in version 1.2.7:
- Changed aoe.ko (and few serial modules) to builtin
- New fex: nanopim1+ (untested) (gmac support only)
- Installer: upgrade mode (preserves partition layout and UDISK content)
- Installer: several fixes to workaround distros differences
- Recompiled with current uboots:
nanopi_m1, nanopi_m1_plus, nanopi_neo, nanopi_neo_air, orangepi_2,
orangepi_lite, orangepi_one, orangepi_pc, orangepi_pc_plus, orangepi_plus,
orangepi_plus2e, orangepi_zero, Sinovoip_BPI_M2_Plus
- Updated rc.local calling to prevent deadlocks
- Added H3resc with boot menu (hold power key on boot): shell, change uboot/fex/boot.cmd, update h3droid from usbdrive/internet, wipe user data
- USB Automount should work on all ports now
- Fixed shell jni path to allow java tools usage
- Added slip(builtin), rtl2830.ko and few others
- Removed g_android and enabled other g_* modules
- Initial resolution set to 1920x1080

As you can see there is a lot to look forward to! We have just a little more testing to do and you should see 1.2.7 out within the next 4-24 hours, so keep checking back!


As always, please feel free to provide feedback here on the forum, on our feedback form or come chat with us on IRC in #H3Droid on Freenode!


Thanks again to everyone who has provided their time and support to H3Droid!


If you LIKE or LOVE H3Droid and want to give back but don't have the time to help, donate to our developers!

In H3Droid version 1.2.7 we are happy to introduce H3resc!

H3resc is our new rescue mode which introduces the H3Droid upgrade feature and much more!

We invite you to visit the informational page we have made to tell about H3resc and all its features!

Please let us know any feedback about usage/bugs/etc so that we may continue to improve it!

Cheers!
i guess either no one has nano pi h3 based board, no users know there is a nanopi forum, or no one having nanopi is interested in using android, eh?
