Sunveil last year suprised everyone by released an Allwinner H3 based TV box with an Android 7.12 OS.
As it turns out the firmware for the Sunveil TV box will actually work well on an Orange Pi PC with an H3 CPU. It may work on other Orange Pi models as well but I have only been able to test it on an Orange Pi PC with H3 CPU and 1GB RAM as that is all I have access to)

The Sunviel Android OS is free of bloatware and chinese language apps, it is rooted , has the Google Playstore and is in English, so it better than the Android 7 beta that is available from orangepi.org.

It isn't 100% perfect as I did not managed to get it to recognise any WiFi dongles I tried with it, but the Ethernet works OK so you can go online with a wired connection.  I have been using it for about a week using it for Amazon Prime Video, Youtube, BBC Iplayer and it seems pretty stable and hasn't crashed. I also have not had the issue I experienced with video streaming apps on H3droid of the videos freezing but sound carrying on and having to be restarted to play correctly.

As with other Android builds it requires Phoenix card software to flash it onto an SD card.

You can download it from here https://www.computersdealstore.com/download-android-7-12-nougat-for-orange-pi-pc-allwinner-h3/

I am note sure if this can be tweaked to better support the Orange Pi but it works pretty well as it is

Works well, thanks. Everything except wifi and Add account works fine. I coudn't create Google account using Settings > Add account and when creating a new account through Google Play it asks for the telephone number.

I had to remove KDPlayer (Kodi 17.5) before installing Kodi 18.1 Leia and I couldn't activate OK button when uninstalling the app by using air mouse arrow but the buton did work when I disabled arrow and used keys.

The only thing that might be a problem is - one of the cores is always at 100% when checking CPU usage via Kodi.

I tried to enable wifi by the procedure I described a while ago:

http://www.orangepi.org/orangepi ... amp;page=1#pid15991

but that didn't work.

After the first launch there was a notification the SD card has to be formatted and there was an error when I clicked OK but everything works fine.

Got to say that I'm really impressed with this ROM!!  I've tried loads on my Orange Pi PC and this just blows them all out of the water.  It's incredibly fast with virtually no lag - for now at least - and Kodi works like a dream, plays 1080p movies flawlessly.  Definitely recommend giving this a go.
I'd be interested to know if it works on any other Orange Pi variants.

Not sure if this helps:
http://www.orangepi.org/orangepibbsen/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=720
ROM is basically the equivalent of an MXQ Pro TV box without the WiFi.  Reckon if it could be installed on EMMC you'd have an equivalent unit.
Only other thing I've noticed is that when using a wifi mini keyboard the blue comms light stays on the whole time suggesting it is constantly communicating with the box.  Works absolutely fine but worth noting, presume there's something causing this.

Deadlock, How far did you get with this? I tried it last night, looked promising but, no WiFi no WAN, did you get past this if so how?
