x86 PCs now get unofficial support for Android TV

21 June 2016 0

You might have certainly stumbled upon a problem of what you should do with the HDMI PC sticks. However, even if you have had any in the past, you may not from now on due to Geek Till it Hertz. It’s the same that had ushered in the Android TV to Raspberry Pi. And now, it’s done that thing for the x86 devices. Now, this means users can install Android TV on AMD PC on Intel device for changing your old devices in “special” computers for your multimedia fun.

The use of Android was primarily targeted for devices based on ARM. There are a few tabs and smartphones powered by Intel which would get official x86 support. However, it largely remains a secondary activity, which is why the Remix OS as well as the Android-x86 projects are still with their heads held up high.

As mentioned above, this can be held in the most correct sense of customized editions of Android, for example, Android TV. You can find this embodiment of Android in small boxes as well as TVs – which all run on ARM processor. And as the number of HDMI computing sticks is on the rise with more similar x86 gadgets around, it is just too hard to avoid the temptation of having Android TV running.


And if you aren’t ready to take risks with your device, Geek Till it Hertz has done the bulk of the work for you. With the second build, the Android TV x86 port works almost flawlessly. It also gets that peculiar Android TV look. You can use Wi-Fi and install as well as use a few apps. YouTube videos experience a hiccup at times, but Kodi works smoothly.
