The developer Maxwen has published an Android 11 build of the alternative Android ROM Omni ROM for the Raspberry Pi 4 in the XDA Developers forum . With this, the mobile operating system can be operated on the craft computer in tablet mode.
As Maxwen writes in his forum post, the published build is stable. The list with the tasks still to be done is quite short, which allows positive conclusions to be drawn about the stability. Remaining tasks include screencast options and the always-on screen, among others. In addition, hardware acceleration is not supported for videos.
Omni ROM for the Raspberry Pi 4 is programmed on a 64-bit basis and can be booted from an SD card as well as via USB. Users can flash the Google apps separately in addition to the weekly images labeled Weekly. All images with the designation MicroG have already integrated some of the Google apps.
Detailed flash instructions
In order to flash Omni ROM for the Raspberry Pi 4, users need an SD card with a size of at least 8 GB to accommodate four partitions. Maxwen gives detailed instructions in the readme file , which is available on the Internet.
Omni ROM has been around since 2013, and was founded by former Cyanogenmod developers, among others. Officially, the ROM is currently available for eleven devices, including a range of Oneplus smartphones and Asus' ROG gaming smartphones. As usual with Android ROMs, there are a number of unofficial builds, including the one for the Raspberry Pi 4.
