I got the Pandaboard on Jan 24. Took some wrangling to get Android 4.0 to compile on my Gentoo system (their instructions and build tools tend to assume Ubuntu), but I got a successful build in the end.
Flashed the SD card and got the board to boot. I get a popup after the boot screen saying “Unfortunately, System UI has stopped”. Seems that Android 4 isn’t as out-of-the-box on Pandaboard as Google says.
Still haven’t fully decided on a touchscreen and mount, but I obviously still have work to do with what I have.
