Hi, So I had some time in this weekend and I fixed almost all the problems of Android.
1. SD card bug in Android
- Root your banana pi android with towelroot ( http://forum.lemaker.org/viewthread.php?tid=807&;extra=page%3D1 )
- Download FX file explorer + FX file explorer root addon
- In FX file explorer open as root /system/etc/vold.fstab
- comment sdcard line
- change mount point of your sata disc or usb disc to /mnt/sdcard
- if not, I will write how to make changes in img file ( a lot linux/windows work in virtualbox )
2. USB is too slow / sata power problems
Android take more power from banana PI so SATA drives and USB won't work without external power.
So I plugged my drive to USB. I plugged data cable to banana pi and I plugged power line to external dc ( I have power strip with USB power) and this fixed problem of low powering. But in speedtest I saw that USB is terrible slow ( about 800KBps upload in LAN!!! ). At home I've got a 300/300Mbps internet so I need ( like ) fast solutions ;-)
So I plugged one more time my disc to SATA, but I took a risk and connected power to second MicroUSB ( OTG ) from other DC and yes! this helped me! SATA disc work fine now ;-) Sometimes it have some problems to start my disc. So, when I'm starting my Banana, I have to unplug and plug again my disc. Now I downloading my "linux distros" with 5MBps speed ( so this is acceptable )
3. How I configured my Banana to be a multimedia system
Videos: MXPlayer with all software and hardware acceleration enabled ( in play mode you have to choose HW acceleration )
DTS codec to MXplayer: ( https://dl.dropbox.com/u/7909146/ffmpeg_v7_neon_cortex9_dts.zip ) - videos work reeealy great I watched some TV series and movies on It and it was good pleasure for me ( knowing that so small computer play so heavy file ;-) )
Music: PowerAMP, Google Music ( greeeat app )
Internet radio: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... droid.DroidLiveLite
Youtube: Still looking for good APP. Now I'm using: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... eedi.youtube.player but It have very pooor UI, before I use: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... indie.pocketyoutube but it's freezing a lot
FTP Server: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rapfox.ftpsvr - good and little app, no limits
Torrent/Downloading files: Adownloader - great app. Others have a lot of limits ( download, connections, torrents ) this app not.
Editor: FX File Explorer with Root addon
System monitor: https://play.google.com/store/ap ... .systemmonitor.lite
Still looking for app to stream my music over internet ( not dlna! ). on my PC I'm using subsonic.
