Android 11.12 on pandaboard

Hi all,

We have both tried all the builds on the pandaboard 4430 but we have
encountered some problems.
It seems like those builds are depending on the screen on how they will

The problem at my side is that the display doesn't want to show something.
I have tried all the builds on my Asus computer screen (HDMI 1920x1080) and
my Sony Bravia<>(HDMI
But every time the screen stayed black. This was all tested with the HDMI
port to HDMI in the screen.

At Mark, the builds worked on his tv at 720p (also Sony Bravia but older)
through HDMI.
But when he connected the pandaboard from HDMI to DVI (with an converter)
it started in phone mode with a low resolution.

We followed the instructions of the links you send to us carefully and we
can confirm that Android was running.

Could there be a problem with the EDID protocol in combination with our
screens? And is there a way to override it when the screen doesn't support
the EDID protocol?

With kind regards,
Mark Kuipers
