NEWS 170605 ABOUT RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2
I have finally managed to make a version of RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 with GAPPS, which can be installed to a Micro SD card (preferable a class 10 card) in Windows 10 using Win32 Disk Imager. You can alternatively (of course) use the dd-command in a Linux system. Unzip the downloaded file raspand-nougat-7.1.2-gapps-kodi-snaptube-aptoide-tv-clashofclans-676mb-170605.zip. Then open a terminal and run the command dd if=raspand-nougat-7.1.2-gapps-kodi-snaptube-aptoide-tv-clashofclans-7400mb-170605.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1M
(Change X to b, d or…).
What’s the point with Win32 Disk Imager?
Well, until now you had to have some basic knowledge about Linux to be able to install RaspAnd 7.1.2. Now you don’t need any special knowledge at all! (Just some basic computer knowledge).

ABOUT Android 7.1.2
Version 7.1.2 is the latest Android system by now. Released on April 8, 2017. The system is used in very few mobile phones (as far as I know).

Softpedia 170611: RaspAnd OS Brings Android 7.1.2 “Nougat” and Kodi 17.3 to Raspberry Pi 3 SBCs
“Arne Exton is informing Softpedia about the availability of a new build of his commercial RaspAnd Android-based operating system for embedded devices, such as Raspberry Pi 3 and Raspberry Pi 2.
Still based on Google’s Android 7.1.2 “Nougat” mobile operating system, RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 Build 170605 is here to replace last month’s RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 Build 170519 release by upgrading Kodi Media Center to version 17.3, which is the latest in the series patching a nasty vulnerability known as the “subtitle hack.”
RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2 Build 170605 also comes pre-installed with various updated apps, among which we can mention Spotify TV 1.2.0, Rotation Control Pro 1.1.2, Google Play Games 3.9.08, Clash of Clans 9.24.9, Gmail 7.4.23, and Aptoide TV 3.2.1. The GAPPS package is also included to give users access to Google’s services.”
