Hi,

it seems impossible to me to achieve custom (16:10, 4:3) resolution under Android on . The images I tried allow to set HDMI modes from inside the Android, but seems to ignore any video-mode setting made in the script fex/bin. I found the "tweaks" which allowed to use 1280x1024 under Linux. I downloaded the Android SDK for H3 devices and were able to identify the same files.

I will try to use the same tweak and build an Android Image for the Opi PC. I wonder if there is a possibility to take the kernel and use it to replace the kernel in some other, nice working Android images.

ALso I am not sure if I have to stick with the H3 Android SDK or if I can use the kernel from the H3 Linux Kernel repository or from Loboris Repository

Hi I know the changes and i basically understand what they do.

My issue is how to introduce those changes to a kernel of some Android working on Orange Pi PC.

- What shall I do to replace a kernel in Android image ?
- What shall I do to get the changes in a kernel from Android Image ?
