Android version on release?
#1
Anyone know exactly which version of Android is going to be shipped with this device? (technical blurb simply says "latest release" - whatever that means)

I got a reply from Planet - it's Android 7.1

Does the Linux kernel source being available help with the possibility of community driven Android updates?

Yes to a point, but all android phones should have kernel sources available - and most do. Gemini development should be better than most given Planet Computers' willingness to engage the community. However: http://www.xda-developers.com/google-man...droid-oreo

Do you know if it will be rooted by default?

I hope not - some software doesn't like rooted devices, but equally I agree it ought to be easy to do, if that is what you want.

Update 49 said the partitioning, etc., software allows rooting, so it is apparently both easy and supported: “You can also use the tool to manually update Android, for example to install a rooted Android version.” which also suggests that it won’t ship rooted.

Yeap, an easy rooting process would be highly appreciated with out the fear of bricking the device

So probably Lineage OS (former Cyanogen Mod) should run OK ? Any info from the source or happy owner on this ?
