The bigggest pain point for me personally since I received my Orange Pi (OP) has been trying to figure out which ROMs work with my version of the OP.  What I intend to do here is to create a bit of an index listing all the different Android ROMs which are available for the different Orange Pi boards along with a link to the post where information and links for the ROM can be found.  I will do my best to rank them in order from best/most functional/stable, to the worst/partially functional/unstable.

I only own an Orange Pi PC so I'll have to rely on anecdotal evidence in the rankings for the other boards.  Any feedback is appreciated it would also be great if once this is fleshed out some we could make it a sticky?
ORANGE PI PC

1. Beelink X2 H3. This is the best ROM I've used so far.  Everything works so far on my the OP PC.

Notice:
  • Some users have had problems with installation if they fail to do the following.
  • Full format the SD card
  • Defrag the SD card
  • Flash the image

2. TRONFY X2 Second post down at the link.
Good: clean install without a lot of bloatwear. Good power management  and stable without extra cooling.

Bad: Only 1 USB host works and power button does nothing.

3. Android (Orange OS) This is the image file from the downloads page of the OP site.
* The Google Drive link was broken and the file from Baidao was corrupted with errors. So I have taken it upon myself to upload this file to Mega.

Notice/warning:
  • First of all this ROM comes with a lot of chinese language bloatware.
  • When you first boot into Android the default language is Chinese.  You'll have to Google how to change the language to English or learn Mandarin.
  • When downloading this file Chrome gave me the "Malicious link" warning page.  I have scanned the file with Avast, Malwarebytes, Bit Defender, and VirusTotal.  None of them found anything harmful so it should be fine, I did want to bring it your attention.

4. ZIDOO X1The most recent version can be found in post #15 of the linked page.

Notice:
  • Be sure to check out the original post for installation instructions. ZIDOO X1 Instructions.
  • Only the bottom USB ports work on the OP PC.

ORANGE PI

1. Android For Orange Pi Default Android 4.4.2 from the downloads page on the main site.

ORANGE PI MINI

1. Android For Orange Pi Mini Default Android 4.4.2 from the downloads page on the main site.

Hello Dav,

Thank you for your list.

I have OPI + 2 and it is not on your listing nor on the downloads. Which model do you think best fit my plus 2?

I have tried every Android image I could find and Beelink is the best I've found. It is also the only one I found so far to properly support the power switch. If you power down using the icons it will shut down and can be restarted with a click of the power switch. Most others need to be power cycled to restart.

Added it at #2 in the list. I haven't had much time to play with my OPI lately. When I get the chance I'll load it up and give it a test drive.


Thanks!

I'm really unsure. I've had some health issues so I haven't had a lot of time to devote to keeping on top of this.

I'll try to track down what the options are and rank them as best I can in the next week or so.
