One Line Summary

Lightning talk on HiKey in AOSP, and what its been useful for


Back in March, HiKey (one of the 96boards) was added as a supported device in AOSP master. This provides a useful devboard in AOSP that can be used for prototyping new features, and can be a useful reference for how to integrate AOSP features for a devboard. This talk will quickly cover background, recent developments, and examples of how the board has been a useful bridge between AOSP and the upstream kernel community.
