What’s new?

Android 13 OS updates

Google provides a list of notable changes for developers:


Code based upon latest Android 13 including all the security patches up until April 2024!


This release comes with SELinux in permissive mode for easy debugging / customization.

Note that this feature only works on userdebug builds, user builds are enforced at all time.


The image also supports Android Verified Boot 2.0!

So I can’t make any modification now? No, there’s a way to disable verity for userdebug builds:

$ adb root
$ adb disable-verity
$ adb reboot

At this point you will be able to modify every partition. However, it goes without saying that this disablement isn’t possible on user builds.

Linux Kernel 5.15.x

This Android release is based on a 5.15.x kernel from MediaTek. For those familiar with the Yocto 5.15 kernel, know that the Android version is quite different as its architecture is meant to support Android Generic Kernel Image (GKI) images.

Ezurio additions

Just like our previous releases, this one includes unique features that only Ezurio provides:

  • HDMI as primary display support
    • This release forces HDMI to be used as primary display for easy evaluation
    • Contact us for other display optoins
  • USB Camera support with custom properties
    • As no CSI camera is currently supported, USB has been enabled
    • Also, since USB camera are declared as EXTERNAL in Android, we offer a way for them to appear as BACK/FRONT cameras:
      # setprop persist.vendor.cam.ext.facing 0
  • Ethernet connectivity enablement
    • This release supports both our KSZ9031 and USB LAN78xx PHYs
  • Custom Audio routing
    • Android uses HDMI audio output for MEDIA content
