0xdroid beagle-donut-0x3 is released now!

So exciting is our brand new release called '0xdroid beagle donut-0x3' that we forgot all about the coming bad weather in Taipei (raining, humid, and chill). This is our third released image for Beagle board in Android and it's based on Donut branch. If you have a beagle board on hand, you may give it a try. We provide a 'Happy installer' tool and it could give you a 'no pain no tears' good experiences on installing Android. Here is a 2 minutes video in youtube based on real booting time! If you don't have any beagle board to see our work, you could take it a look from our released videos in youtube.


What kind of meat we have this time?

More and better peripheral support

Here is our Roadmap about all these releases. If you have interest on particular item, you could get more information from our issue tracker. Furthermore, we welcome your feedback or any suggestion on 0xlab-devel mailing list!

Frankly speaking, my favorite feature in this released image is neither Bluetooth Obex nor GSM modem, what I like most is our theme launcher. It has a Christmas theme inside. This theme is our best wishes. Wish everyone have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
