RaspAnd 6.0.1 for Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2 Build 160717 with GAPPS, Wifi, Bluetooth and YouTube working
RaspAnd Build 160717 is an Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow system which can run on Raspberry Pi 3 and Pi 2. I have finally managed to include Google Play Store and other GAPPS.
NOTE: The first build of RaspAnd Marshmallow is from 160625. The second build is from 160711. Those versions have now been replaced by version 3 from 160717.
This new version of RaspAnd has support for Wifi and Bluetooth. RaspAnd runs very well on the new Raspberry Pi 3 computer. The system runs also on the "old" Raspberry Pi 2 computer. Build 3 uses the latest version of Google Play Services - 9.2.56 - and a new kernel - 4.4.15-exton. The video performance is far better in version 3 than in previous versions. You can watch almost all movies in YouTube with acceptable quality.
What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to explore computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python. It’s capable of doing everything you’d expect a desktop computer to do, from browsing the internet and playing high-definition video, to making spreadsheets, word-processing, and playing games.
