The Raspberry Pi OS we need has to be obtained from the Emteria installer. The installer can be downloaded from the Emteria website.
- Log into your account on the Emteria website.
- Click Downloads at the top of the page.
- Download the latest installer from the top of the list.
- When the download has finished, install the Emteria installer.
You'll need a fresh microSD card for the Emteria OS installation. If you want to use a used SD card, make sure it's formatted before you begin the Emteria installation.
- Format the microSD card or start with a new one.
- Insert the microSD card into the computer that contains the Emteria installer.
- Launch the Emteria installer software.
Now it's time to flash the image to the microSD card.
- Log into your Emteria account in the Emteria installer window.
- Set the first drop down to Raspberry Pi 3B/B+.
- Set the second drop-down to the version of Emteria you want to use. I'm setting mine to version 0.5.19.
- Click Continue and wait for the image to finish flashing.
Once the image has flashed, we can load it in the Pi.
- Insert the microSD card into the Raspberry Pi.
- Turn on the Raspberry Pi.
- When the Pi boots, you'll be met with a welcome screen. Confirm your language and click Next.
- Follow the next few screens to fill out your timezone, clock layout, and WiFi information.
- You will be prompted to activate a license if you have one. Skip this step to use the OS in evaluation mode.
- Wait for the OS to finish setting up.
Congratulations! You're running Android on a Raspberry Pi. You can use the included browser to sideload additional apps. For your next project, try installing Dropbox on Raspberry Pi.
