You are welcome to try new   Android 4.4.2 image for OrangePI 2.

Download from mega ( opi2_lobo_Android.img.xz or opi2_lobo_Android_v2.img.xz (New version))
Last update: 07/05/2015 16:15 UTC

  • Fully working basic Android image with some extras installed
  • Ethernet & Wi-Fi works
  • Rooted
  • Google PlayStore installed
  • Extra apps installed: Nova Launcher, Total Commander, Terminal emulator, AdAway, Quick Reboot, Xposed Framework + some modules...
  • Kodi 15.0 (download latest apk from Kodi downloads) works great

Installation

  • Download opi2_lobo_Android.img.xz or opi2_lobo_Android_v2.img.xz (recommended)
  • Unpack (unxz on Linux, 7zip on Windows)
  • Optionaly check md5sum
  • Burn with PhoenixCard

If you activate your Google account, please wait a few minutes to PlayStore update, then you can install desired applications.

You can activate Xposed Framework, and use included modules to theme your Android installation like Lollipop (Material design)

Full HD resolution

If you set 1080p resolution, user interface is still 720p (videos are played in 1080p).
To setup real 1920x1080 resolution do the following:
Open Terminal emulator and enter the following commands (accept superuser request when asked)
  1. su
  2. wm size 1920x1080
  3. exit
  4. exit
Copy the Code
Resolution will change immediately and will be kept after reboot (reboot after resolution change is recommended)
You will probably need to change some font sizes, Nova Launcher can set own font sizes, and you can use Xposed module App Settings to set per application font sizes and/or DPI.

I think everything is created ok. If you have empty system or data partition (/dev/sdf7 & /dev/sdf1), maybe you don't have rsync installed. It is needed to copy system, data and cache partitions from image.
Message about overlapping partitions is normal. Allwinner has strange android partition structure (overlapping).

How did you prepare this OPI_android_linuxinst.tar.gz ?
How can I prepare this kind of installation for other android images (for example zidoo) ?

I don't have enough free time nor interest for Android building from scratch, so I "puzzled" it. I'm more interested in Linux.
I will probably build my own kernel later ...

BTW, does anyone know how to include data partition in PhoenixCard image ?

Well, it seemed strange to me , there are missing pieces and no patches available for the android SDK.

I 'm regretting slowly having bought this orange H3

...

OS with only Kodi == OpenElec ...
But, if you only need media center, why use development board such as OrangePI or similar ...
If you have never used exspansion connector (low level peripherals), what is the point in buying the board with one.
Why not use any tv box/stick, there are many in the same price range ...

I don't have OPI+ so I cannot test it, maybe the ethernet is not working on OPI+.
Please try it and report, if it is not working I'll make the image with OPI+ fex.
