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.

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.

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

Hello @terry and @Gouwa,

Do you have any plans to release Android 8.1 or Android 9 ROM for VIM2 soon?

If not, maybe you are planing to release the updated version of Android 7.1.2?
Because current ROM -VIM2_Nougat_V180619.7z is pretty old and have some unsolved issues: color blinking errors in youtube app, accidentally screen blinking, hotspot 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz is not stable and works only for 10 minutes, hotspot can’t be started automatically after VIM2 boot, TWRP recovery is not working, and other small issues.

Thank you.

Hi, SuperDario
The amlogic official hasn’t a plan to release S912 Android 8.1 or Android9 ROM.
But the issues you listed, we will check it. Thanks.
