Android TV Gets Unofficial Raspberry Pi 3 Port #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Raspberry Pi continues to make inroads into everything. Enterprising user “Geek Till it Hertz” shows you how to runAndroid TV on a Raspberry Pi 3.
Just two weeks ago, we saw signs of official Android support for the Raspberry Pi 3, which would put the little single-board computer (SBC) almost on par with the likes of the Nexus devices. However, some more enterprising Android fans aren’t content just to sit down and wait for the announcement to drop. One such user is ric96, a.k.a. “Geek Till it Hertz”, who specializes in all types of fun and insane things to do with the Raspberry Pi. And it can’t get more fun or more insane than installing Android TV on the RPi 3 and then loading all sorts of emulators, which is exactly what ETA PRIME did.
