    I had that, after sideloading the latest version it works fine, it couldn't be installed or updated from the playstore (wasn't present).

    Anyone who got Android OS working, can check what's the Widevine level (if any)?

    Using DRMInfo app it's a piece of cake to do.

    The images you download write over the whole SD card, so the formatting is handled. You get a small fat32 partition then the various partitions that android needs.

    Use Vulkan for now. OpenGL isn't working on Dolphin on LineageOS. It's already been mentioned in the Dev's discord a number of times so I'm sure it will get worked out eventually.

    How do I enable Vulkan? I'm used to using the Lakka or L4T version, not the Android version.

    When Dolphin is open just touch the little icon that looks like a photo and then change the video backend, it should be the very first setting you see. :)

    Thanks, I would have never checked there. I saw a picture icon and for some reason i was thinking screenshots. Is there any way to remove the on screen button overlay?

    I'm not sure if anybody asked this before, but, could we potentially use a virtual sd with this?

    I dont understand why people want Android on the Switch. Cant you just buy a cheap Bluetooth controller for your phone?

    Buy the Shield TV for that not a Switch.

    A lot of the comments I read in the first few pages did not age well at all and it's hilarious and awesome.
    Android on the switch may not be perfect yet but the potential is amazing and I'd much rather play android games/apps/emulators on my switch with full joycon support than to have to carry around my switch, smart device and a bluetooth controller (or just carry my GPD XD around) together.
    The small taste of android so far is incredibly fascinating. Just being able to play San Andreas on my switch is such a damn treat.

    Just what this first version of android was able to accomplish is outstanding. Moonlight streaming is what i've been using the most but i also been playing GTA SA which is awesome. Also Geforce Now works perfectly. And hell just having a proper media player is great.


    Who knows how crazy this will get say a year from now. The devs said they are already working on porting over pie (9.0) and im sure someone will get this to run off the emmc which will DRASTICALLY increase the speed of the OS. That along with dualboot is all coming so lets just hop on this train and see where it goes.
