BPI-M64 support android 6.0

why you need android 4.4 , it need time to development .

Cydia will work well on Android 4.4, but do not support 5.0 and above, that is why we want it.

Do you have plan to develop 4.4 which can run on M3 and M64? or is it hard to do that?

we not plan to do android 4.4 on M3 and M64 , maybe you need use BPI-M1, M1+ , it support android 4.4

Do you have the M3 with android 6.0 source code?

Well, it is possible to run 4.4 on the M3. I just used an Onda V989 air image, which is as well A83T and works.

The only problem is connectivity - no wifi, no lan, no bluetooth (last one is less important). If this would be possible (and would require the support from sinovoip), than will be great, since the drm support is built in.
