  • Hello. I installed Emteria on Raspberry Pi3 B. The application stops on the logo and does not start. What can I do? Cordially.

      This happened to me too, I had to format my SdCard using the Sandisk SXDC utility called "SD Card Formatter" and do a full format, this apparently checks for bad sectors on the card and marks them unusable. Once I did that I was able to get the OS running without issue.

    Hi SanderK,
    thank you very much for your reply. As I am new to emteria, I only downloaded the latest version (0.5.16), what a pity one cannot download older releases.
    Could you maybe upload the 0.5.11 version somewhere and send me the download link? That would be awsome. But of course only if you feel totaly ok with it :-).
    Best regards,
    Jürgen.

      Try the beta version it seems to be pretty good on the RPI3 / RPI 3b+
  • BTW for those who do not specifically need OpenGapps Yalp is an easier workaround to download require apk's like Kodi and Netflix.

      Completely agree. Once you install OpenGapps it over utilizes your Sdcard with nonsense crap (compile errors). If you install these apps directly from Yalp you can bypass gapps altogether and keep your system from running slow.

      I installed gapps because I needed access to Beta apps, once I had the beta app installed I created a local apk file and copied it to my Downloads folder and SCP'ed it off the sdcard to another machine.

      You can then disable Google Play services and Google Play store from the Yalp interface (show system apps on the right hand side) and and the system stops being slow because it stops trying to run Gapps.

      At some point I plan to reinstall and start fresh again, then install the Beta apks I saved locally using adb over ethernet.

      oh, and overclocking your RPI REALLY seems to help keep things running snappy.

      My current overclocking config /boot/config.txt is (note that force_turbo=1 will void your warranty and you should have heatsinks installed on the chips):

      #my custom settings
      force_turbo=1
      boot_delay=1
      arm_freq=1450
      core_freq=500
      gpu_freq=560
      gpu_mem=256
      over_voltage=5
      sdram_freq=650
      over_voltage_sdram=3
      sdram_schmoo=0x02000020
      dtparam=sd_overclock=83
      initial_turbo=30
      temp_soft_limit=70
      dtoverlay=sdtweak,overclock_50=83

    Hi Kalkov, I have installed the latest version of Emteria on my Rapsberry Pi 3B+, and I use the touchscreen Kuman SC5A-UK 5 inches (the drivers are available here).
    The screen displays Emteria, but the touchscreen functionality doesn't work. Is it possible to do something about that? Many thanks :)

      You may need to do this on your own, I've asked kalkov to provide us with a tutorial on how to compile our own drivers. There are discussion forums out there where Android is compiled on the arm platform (LineageOS for example) which might already have precompiled modules for you to install onto your system.

      I'd recommend taking a copy of your sdcard using Win32ImageWriter (or Win32DiskWriter) I forget which it is... before you start messing around with the OS. That way you can preserve your fresh installation / configs and reflash if you make a mistake.

    Hi, I'm on bluetooth issues. Honestly, I am not very familiar with Linux, but I understand the meaning of all the work and wanted to ask you how you check connections and what you logcat through. I also want to check my usb-bt for work. Thank you in advance.

      I'd also like to know the answer to this

      I figured out that you use ADB over Ethernet/Wifi. Replace the IP address with the one assigned to your RPI

      adb devices
      adb connect 192.168.1.100
      adb logcat

      Then you'll see log output appear in your terminal.
