, its on the constacang page. So lets go to that page, and this really is a slick version uh. It definitely has got better and better, as time has gone on, and I prefer the lineage OS to the AOSP. The stock Android version of this you can see from. If I go back to the home screen that Ive installed, the Google Play store Ill show how to do that, but lets go to constacangs page click on Raspberry Pi 4.. There are different devices. This is available for but most of the others are phoned. So you can see theres a Raspberry, Pi 3 version, but I think thats, older versions of Android. So when you look at the list of whats available, so AOSP is stock Android with nothing else done to it, no tweaks or anything else, but the lineage OS version is a tweaked version. It definitely is more slick than the stock version of Android, with quite a few features added in and if we could – and there is a vast list of whats working in fact its easier to just go through the list of whats not working, because it is just Hardware, video decoding thats always been a struggle on the pie with loads of different things, but that said, video playback at 1080 is absolutely fine, so Android has always had good video playback. Even without that, and thanks to everyone involved in this project, it just keeps getting updates. It keeps getting better and better and all things like all the information here of how to install it, how to install or Google apps.

All of that sort of thing is really well maintained. Heres YouTube playing at 1080, I cant seem to get stats for nerds working, but, as you can see, it looks really. Chris looks really clear, really really impressive. Ive had GTA Liberty, City Stories and also San Andreas work on Android builds in the past, but for some reason they havent for a while on the constant Kang bills they just dont launch, which is a shame but somethings, obviously making it not work. Lets try this odmar yeah. This seems to be launching absolutely fine, looks pretty decent yeah thats working and looks great lovely and smooth yeah, even when theres more things on the screen, its working, absolutely fine, its a nice level design on this, you get an option when you first install it to Have three two or just swiping, so if youre using a touch screen, I guess you probably wouldnt, maybe use these buttons, but I quite like them, because Im used to them to see what apps are open at the same time and things like that and also the Back arrow is always very important on Android if we scroll down from the top here. This will release this menu and you see youve got settings here: hotspot, Bluetooth, control, brightness control, all sorts of things on here and a notification system. But if I click on the settings, one and if we scroll down weve, got about tablet so that just tells us bits about the pie.

This is how you enable developer mode and Ill show a bit of that when I show the setup bit of this. But if we go into system and scroll down, there are dedicated Raspberry Pi settings and these keep getting better and better. So you can see here. Audio out is set to three and a half mil Jack that actually defaulted. To that I should have had my speaker plugged in when I was playing the games. Uh display resolution. You can switch between various different resolutions. This has been problematic in the past, but you can see theres loads of resolutions. There display rotation if youre, using in vertical mode configuration for the official Raspberry Pi touch screen infrared remote control. You see all the mouse options here. Weve got overclocking within this as well, and all the debugging and SSH, and you can see that Hardware video coding is experimental. When I last tried it. It didnt improve it, but its nice to see that theyre always working on it and the split screen bits cool. If you press and hold on an app you can see you get all these options and we can go left or right and information and so on. But you can see all sorts of extra things have come up here. So if I put it on the left hand side, I can then pick another app to be on the right hand, side so say. For instance, I go for YouTube.

Oh Ive done YouTube and YouTube, well see what it does there you go, so you can have two instances of YouTube and its just very basic split screen, but actually works very well. Apple have messed it up on the iPad recently with uh. I think its called stage manager it works terribly. I ended up disabling it within the first hour, although I have just had an update on my iPad, so I might try it again so lets show you how to install it. So this version of lineage was running from an SSD drive which was working absolutely fine in my Pi 4. But Im going to put this onto a USB stick. You can see I plugged it into my Mac, already go to the constacane page Ill, put a link in the description and scroll up and youll see two different versions. Now the one that says over the air zip is one designed to update a previous build. I always do a fresh, install, so click on this one and then click on download. So once thats downloaded and mines already done Im going to get a Raspberry, Pi image here. This will be the same process on Windows or Mac, or Linux choose OS scroll. All the way to the bottom and use custom, then we need to pick the linear Jos, that weve just downloaded hit open, choose storage mine is my Samsung bar and hit right, and yes, okay, so thats all finished so lets unplug that now, if I had written That image to an SD card – I could just put it in my pi and boot up and everything will be fine but because Im using a USB stick, I need to do something different, so Im going to boot up Linux on my Pi, it doesnt really matter What Linux you use so lets switch that on and then Im going to plug my USB stick into a USB 2 socket on my pi, and it shows up here so now.

What I need to do is work out which one is which – and I think this one is the one so lets open – that youre looking for the boot partition and then we need to go into config.txt and we need to look for boot device. You can see it here, so I need to put a hash here and I need to delete that one, so, basically its going to ignore booting from SD card and its going to boot only from USB lets file and save that and shut this down. So this is the Android USB stick Im going to unplug the SSD that I was running Linux from just now pop this one into the USB 3 socket, not the easiest thing with one hand and uh switch off and then switch on again and thatll boot lineage Os for the first time follow all the on screen instructions to log in so if I press space and hit start accept the license and your time zone, and so this is the bit I mentioned earlier on, so you can have gesture navigation, two button or three Button, I left it on three button because Im used to it Im gon na put a pin in and Im not going to restore and lets start. So it comes with a bare minimum. I know some people dont, like the Play Store, I quite like having the Play Store. So if you want that as an option go into settings scroll down on the left hand, side about tablet scroll down on the right hand, side build number, just keep left clicking that until it says youre a developer and then pop your pin in now, weve got A system scroll down developer options and we can do a search for this uh if I do restart Advanced restart scroll down and enable that and then press the home button.

Now we need to go into the browser and go to constacangs page Raspberry, Pi, 4. and scroll down to the lineage OS that were using scroll down until you get the bit about installing Google apps. Here you go how to install Google apps. So click on this link and we need to download the version for our release, so we dont need Android, 10 or 11. We need Android 13. and we need the arm 64 version, so lets hit download and look for the start. Download – which is this one here and then pick a mirror and download, and we can check the progress of our download by going into the apps and files and downloads. You can see 58 not there. Yet. You can also check it by scrolling down from the top left, so you can see it here. Downloading, okay, so thats finished so lets scroll down from the top again and we need to go to the power option here: restart and Recovery. If everythings gone correctly, you should have booted into this screen, so lets hit, install, go to download and you can see the file. Click on that and click and swipe to confirm. I usually have to double tap and swipe on my Logitech keyboard and this will install so when thats finished. Well, I do the wipe down of it because I always used to, although it doesnt say in the instructions – and I know that mines worked so lets swipe to wipe.

Then we go back and go back on the back arrow and back again and then wipe and swipe to factory reset and then Reboot system and then just log back in the normal way. The reason you have to do this twice is because weve just wiped it. You need to wipe it, otherwise it wont, install the Google Play Store properly and were back up and running, and this time weve got the Google Play Store. If you still get problems, if it doesnt work as Ive shown it maybe try a different display. Ive often found that Android can be fussy with displays, although on these later versions you have a load of display modes but yeah, maybe just plug it into your TV to try starting up on that. If youre using a USB SATA cable, some are fussy on a pie. Ive always got a recommended one in my description and if yours doesnt work, just try in the USB 2 socket and you might find a little boot, its obviously not going to be as fast. But that generally means that youve got an incompatible USB device. Okay, so I hope this helps thanks very much for watching.
