Raspberry Pi single-board computer

There are several reasons to build eOS for Raspberry Pi:

  1. Raspberry Pi is one of the most popular ARM-based hardware in the world.
  2. Despite this, Raspberry Pi still suffers from a certain lack of major Android ROMs with good support and regular OTA updates, so it seems like a perfect opportunity for eOS to promote itself and attract a new audience.
  3. This can be a basis for expansion into the TV field, because it is easy to turn Raspberry Pi 4 into a 4K set-top box that will be two times cheaper than Shield TV and more powerful than old Nexus Player, supported by LineageOS community today.

What do you think of that?


This would be interesting. There is already a Pie version for Raspberry Pi or should it be Raspberry Pie?

More than that, there is a working LineageOS 16 build for Pi3, but most of these ROMs are one-man projects with no proper support or clear future. I think there’s space for something bigger.

Let’s go, /e/!! This is what we need!
I love the idea!


Pine64 is another interesting one, with a phone on the way, so get the /e/ os ready for that too.

It gets messy trying to pick the least proprietary blobbed device. Sigh.

I’ve been exploring a lot of ARM dev boards lately, but even so, the release of Pi4 was able to surprise me with the price/performance ratio. Where else can you find 4x Cortex A72 cores with 4GB of memory just for $55? Dunno if there’s a better offer than this.

Yeah, imo the pi4 is absolutely the best!!!
BTW, could anyone point me to buy them online? I really want to buy them, but I thiink that they’re only available in physical stores in England… sigh.

Their site has a list of official dealers around the world. And perhaps you’ll be also interested in the reasonably-priced aluminum case with bulid-in cooling and à la Apple look.
