    I'm in the switchroot discord. They're discussing locking the discussion thread on xda. (so no people start spamming the thread demanding it to release right away)


    lol i just used win32diskimager to backup my l4t ubuntu sd so i can format and install android, i suggest you guys do the same if you plan on replacing l4t ubuntu with android, unless you have another micro sd card


    release link just posted on switchroot twitter

    XDA normally frowns on placeholder threads.

    Looking forward to the release. I`m just wondering why a placeholder would be made and left for 5 days?

    Better to release / build an OP all-in-one I would have thought. Prevent the RELLEEEEEEEASEEEE NOW MOfO idiots spamming...

    I wonder if it would be better to wait for this instead of dual booting with lakka. I assume emulation would be good with this.

    Is it possible to install this on the same memory card im using now or is it better to just put this on it's own memory card?

    You have to use a separate SD card for Android.

    Are you serious? Antivirus on Android is absolutely unnecessary.

    I'd like to think we might be able to just have multiple partitions, but hey that's just a thought
