    Hi Everyone! I have a question, I want to install android on my raspberry pi with an lcd screen.

    First thing I think we need to know, what exactly are the specs for this particular LCD? Does it have a type or model number? Is it seven segment, matrix or some fancy colour one etc.? And how is it connected to the RP? Have you checked with the screen's manufacturer, maybe they have driver source code available?

    RP's default video out is via HDMI, and some colour LCD panels do have HDMI input, with no extra drivers should be required.

    I presume your LCD is supported by one of the official Raspberry Pi OSs, like Raspbian? Thing with Android on RP, I understand it's rather beta and experimental, and so drivers for particular bits of third-party hardware, may not exist and will need to be written or ported.

    I do have an RP3 myself, but I only use it as a Kodi media device.
