    1. Sorry Will, just received your comment just now as it was in the spam section (not sure why but it may be due to the fact that you used numbers in your name). I am not sure that Berryboot would support Android installation. This is because Android has 3 partitions whereas Raspbian, Gentoo, etc usually have 2 partitions only. This is one of the reasons why there have been problems with implementing Emteria into PINN.

      1. Correct. With PINN you can install android on a fresh setup but not any time later due to the fact the android installation has 3 partitions whereas “normal” images have 2 partitions.

    1. I don’t think this is available for the Raspberry Pi 3A+ due to the fact that android needs quite a bit of RAM to run. The Raspberry Pi 3B and 3B+ have 1 GB of RAM whereas the 3A+ has half of that, 512mb of RAM.

  1. I got the same info on another website, but when I open the installer and entered my credentials I wouldn’t let me in. it would just say,
    login error-try again.
    if you have any suggestions please let me know.

  2. It’s just getting stuck on the screen when it says “Emteria powered by android” with a emteria logo on-screen then in just stays like that for ever

    1. How long did you wait? The first time for me it took 5 minutes or so. I did have problems once, I had to reflash the image. If you still have problems after waiting or after reflashing, contact emteria devs via their forums.

    1. Did you download the latest version of Emteria.OS? What Raspberry Pi version are you using? Have you tried reflashing the SD card?

      1. i installed 2018 .exe version not 2019 version. Used 1 amp 5 volt d.c and using windows 10. Raspberry pi 3 b+

        1. Install the 2019 version. You can’t install the image properly without the latest version.You will have to use the official power supply otherwise your going to have loads of power issues, even ones that can corrupt your SD card.

  3. I tried using emteria os v8.0 (the latest one todate)
    it will jerk while playback the 1080 or 720 youtube video.
    i connecting with eternal cable, so can rule out network stability.
    Was going to buy few licenses for emteria os. luckily i tested it out with evaluation version

    1. to make it worst..
      the netflix version 4.16 that i tested will only stream 240×328 resolution video.
