Question regarding utilizing GPIO for IR blaster/receiver
Hi, I'm quite new here. Basically what I want to achieve is possible with Raspbian where I would build an IR blaster circuit and attach it to the GPIO pins. Now in Raspbian the flow is something like this; attach the IR blaster circuit to GPIO -> load IR blaster library -> configure GPIO pin to use for IR -> run script
As in android, there is an API for IR receiver. It's incomplete but should be enough to read incoming infrared signal and perform task. so the process would be simply load libraries and module for IR and let Android handle the rest.
Now how do I do this in Emteria/Android? Do I have to patch the image to include IR libraries? Is handling the received IR signal requires special app/compile my own IR receiver service?
