Freescale i.MX6 Development Boards (Wandboard, Cubox-i and HummingBoard) Get Android Kitkat Firmware and SDK

Several Freescale i.MX6 development boards have gotten a KitKat treat this month with the release of Android 4.4 firmware and SDK. The boards involved include Wandboard Solo/Dual/Quad, as well as Solidrun Cubox-i boards, and the Raspberry Pi like HummingBoard.

Wandboard_Android_4.4Thanks to the “magic” of device tree, a single firmware image is now provided for all the boards provided by a given company.

For Wandboard Solo, Dual, and Quad:

For CuBox-i and HummingBoard:

Thanks to … Harley!

    Hopefully, Freescale can become a nice provider of Android-based hardware. They are on the right path: XBMC almost has hardware accellerated video playback for Freescale i.MX6:

    Boundary devices also released a Android SDK and image for their Nitrogen6 Max/Lite boards.
    It may also work for SABRELite.
