Hello Chris,

Looks good ! I was going to ask how this differs from Andrew H’s Android on Beaglebone, but after glancing at your page it seems obvious to me.

I think what would be beneficial to all is an explanation how Android differs from say Debian. In the context of how the hardware peripherals are accessed. Perhaps even a video or three covering the basics.

I think that having an example of a person clicking an on screen button via an Android app, then having that app turn on an LED connected to a P8 / P9 pin would be awesome. Personally, quite honestly. I would have no idea where to start. Despite having nearly 4 years hands on experience with Debian on the Beaglebone.

Hi William,

Thanks for your feedback. I agree that a little demo showing demoing
GPIOs would be nice. I'll work on putting one online when I get a spare
moment or two.

Chris.
