This question already has an answer here:

I've seen Android running on Raspberry Pi 2 on Youtube however I have not seen Android running on the B+ device.

What version of Android can work with decent performance with Raspberry Pi Model B+?

Straight to the point: none.

You can get maybe half-decent performance with Razdroid AKA CyanogenMod that's been ported to the first generation Pis (B+, B, A+, etc.). Usable, but not decent at all (for my standards). The cursor itself jumps around.

For decent performance, try to get a Pi 2. Android works with Berryboot. Just a bit of lag especially on anything graphics-fancy, but works.

So to conclude, yes. Android does run on first-generation Pis, but it's slow.

  • I can't find any link for CyanogenMod image for the Raspberry Pi B+ device, is there a link? – xybrek Jan 30 '16 at 17:30
  • @xybrek Razdroid IS Cyanogenmod that's been ported to the pi. I just realized that. Updated answer. – Gene Dela Rosa Jan 31 '16 at 5:01
