Android – 8.0 Oreo ROM for Khadas VIM2

Hello Khadas team,

When are you planning to release Android – 8.0 Oreo ROM for Khadas VIM2 box?

Best regards,

Darius

Probably Khadas Team will work on ti as soon as Amlogic create Oreo SDK available for 905* and others SoC. It’s up to manufacturers if they are going to use it or not.

Any news about Oreo preview of stable for VIM2?

Do you have plans to release a new stable Nougat version with solved issues for VIM2?

Yep, as Oreo still in developing and seem that not quite stable, so we will still release Nougat for both VIMs.

Android Oreo was available for the Khadas VIM at long time ago. But VIM2 need to wait for more time.

#14

Are there any specific issues holding from having Android Oreo on VIM2?

Also, how do you root Oreo - does the same building with SuperSU applies to Oreo as well?

I can see that there’s no dedicated branch for Oreo in @terry 's SuperSU repository :slightly_smiling_face:

Amlogic only release Android 8.0 for S905X(VIM1) and S912(VIM2). We are waiting for them to release Android 8.1. BTW, we don’t plan to release Android 8.0 for VIM2.


#16

So I’m guessing appropriate SuperSU will come along with Android 8.1? :blush:


#17

Yes, you are right. :smile:
