Anyone into Raspberry Pi and it's development and many uses? So I got a pretty nice little setup soley for the purpose of building a dedicated KODI box. Well, since then I've found a ton of things to do with it! I am wondering 2 things if anyone has any info. 1) can s VM of a Pi be run on a Android device? 2)) can are there any known android OSs that can be run on the Raspberry? Any help, or info would be awesome. Thanks!

The Raspberry doesn't have an OS per se. It's just a hardware platform that can run one of a number of mostly Linux-based OSes. There are Raspberry Pi-specific versions of these OSes; it should be possible to create a VM using one of them, provided your hypervisor can mimic the Pi's ARM CPU. Although given how cheap a Pi is, not sure what the point of creating a VM of a Pi OS would be...


There are some versions of Android refactored to run on a Pi. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/05/google-to-bring-official-android-support-to-the-raspberry-pi-3/
