    The link provided, directed me to a file named "Gingerbread+EthernetManager.7z". I do not know if this is the correct image file.
    I tested the file for errors, unzipped it, and burned the image to my Raspberry Pi 2 as instructed, but no response. Only power LED is on.

    To bad for me.

    So... having Android on Raspberry, can I use the pins to control sensors or something? or is only for fun/entertaiment?
