Qualcomm Robotics RB3 (also known as DragonBoard 845c) as well as Robotics RB5 boards can currently sustain Android 13, simply a couple of days after the resource code was pressed to AOSP (Android Open Up Resource Job).
Once (i.e. a couple of years ago), it would certainly have taken weeks, as well as more probable months, to port the most recent variation of Android (AOSP) to a certain solitary board computer system. However many thanks to efforts such as Job Treble, Android recommendation boards such as DragonBoard 845c (RB3), HiKey 960, Khadas VIM3, as well as Qualcomm Robotics Board RB5 can currently obtain the most recent variation of Android up as well as running in an issue of days.
Android 13 was launched on August 15, as well as Linaro discussed RB3 as well as RB5 assistance on August 18, as well as while Linaro designers worked together with Google designers prior to the AOSP, it is still an excellent task.
Amit Pundir, Linaro Designer, clarifies just how this was enabled:
For many years Linaro has actually collaborated with Google to continuously maintain 96Boards advancement boards functioning as well as in-sync with the upstream Bit variations as well as AOSP. Equipment with great software application assistance is important for screening as well as recognition of the most recent AOSP as well as most recent secure as well as upstream bits. The partnership with Google as well as the upstream neighborhood, incorporated with the upstreaming initiatives of Linaro’s Android group as well as Linaro’s touchdown group for Qualcomm have actually brought us to where we are today. As well as while there is constantly even more job to do, having the ability to boot the most recent Android launch on an advancement board right out of package is a terrific contentment!
2 photos are readily available, one based upon the android13.0.0_r3 tag made use of by the Pixel 6a as well as the various other making use of AOSP master. Those are unified photos, indicating they can work on either RB3 or RB5 without adjustments. There are still a couple of problems occasionally, especially Wi-fi as well as Bluetooth regressions which are being dealt with.
I’ve likewise asked Khadas whether VIM3/3L boards would certainly obtain Android 13 assistance because there are noted as main Android recommendation boards, as well as I was informed that while the boards are sustained by the main Android AOSP mainline, not all functions are sustained. Amlogic does not intend to offer an Android 13 SDK for the A311D cpu, so it might describe why. Khadas likewise notified me their software application designers concentrated their initiatives on Ubuntu as well as their OOWOW system, which must make good sense because a lot of SBC individuals are possibly making use of Linux.
Back to Android 13 assistance on the RB3 as well as RB5 systems… You can locate even more information as well as comply with the advancement progression on the Software program Gadget Enablement for Android Upstream web page, and/or go to the online Linaro as well as Qualcomm Technology Day on September 6 to read more concerning Linaro’s Android teamwork to sustain the recommendation boards in AOSP.
