Reports have come in of running Android 11 on a small computer, the Raspberry Pi 4.

The Raspberry Pi was originally designed to run Linux. Its architecture is ARM, the same as the Android OS, but the lack of drivers has made it difficult to run Android.

However, a report posted by Max Weninger on the forums of the tech site XDA-Developers shows that he has succeeded in getting OmniROM, based on Android 11, to work on the Raspberry Pi 4.

Android 11 runs in tablet mode on the Raspberry Pi 4 and can be operated similarly to an Android tablet, and also has access to the Play Store. But there are reportedly some graphic issues because of the tablet mode.

The world of Raspberry continues to expand with the release of the Raspberry Pi 400, which has a built-in keyboard. If an environment running the latest Android OS, such as this one, can be spread, it is likely to lead to more customers.
