General info

IRC Channel: #razdroid at

Forum thread: A video showing the first Android 4.0 build: Android 4.0

A video showing the first usable, but slow build of Android 2.3 (CM7.2): Android 2.3

Want to compile yourself? Take a look at this page: CM7_Compilation

As for the compilation of the kernel, look here: Kernel_Compilation

A video showing a graphics accelerated version of Android 4.0: Broadcom Demo

Current status

CyanogenMOD 9 (based on Android 4.0): Boots, unusable

  • Framebuffer issues: possibly due to the lack of double buffering and/or page flipping in the bcm2708 framebuffer driver
  • Proper libEGL library not present: libraries *are* available, but those are linked against glibc instead of android's bionic libc (issue filed here)
  • UI Crashes

CyanogenMOD 7.2 (based on Android 2.3): Boots, very slow, barely usable.

  • Same problem with the hardware acceleration libraries.

Official Android 4.0.3 (built by Broadcom): Boots, very fast with hardware acceleration, lacks AudioFlinger support.

Ice Cream Sandwich (based on aosp):

  • In progress.


Recommended image: CyanogenMOD 7.2 This image needs an SD card of at least 2GB. Extract and image to your SD card just like the Debian image (using dd)

Other images:
CyanogenMOD 7.2 Same instructions apply
CyanogenMOD 7.2 (with Ethernet Menu) Same instructions apply

Note: You may want to change hdmi_group and hdmi_mode in config.txt (or just remove the lines)
