Re: Can I upgrade the Android version of Vive Focus?

Some of the features I need are supported in Android Api 28, but now the Vive Focus is just Android Api 25. Is there any way to upgrade the Android version of the Vive Focus?

Sorry, I can't fully understand.

Couldn't you upgrade Android SDK API 25 to 28 from your side? It should decide on your development environment. Or anything I miss or have you already met the compile error? Please help to clarify.

Thanks.

Sorry, Maybe I didn't make it clear. Let's take a picture.微信图片_20181204103635.png

The information I got from vive focus is that its android version is Android 7.1.2 and it supports up to API 25. But some of my features are only available in API 28, so I wonder if there is any way I can manually upgrade the focus's Android version .

Thank you.

Please allow me some time to check internally since it's not an easy to answer question.

Thanks.

The quick reply answer is no, _you_ cannot replace the android platform API Level 25 yourself, as the rom is locked however if the question is when we will update to a later API Level, that's what we'll have to get back to you about regarding future Wave SDK updates.

I also need the focus to be upgradable to  Android 8.0 Oreo

because of this brilliant unity asset

That would make VR awsome.

As this is what is needed

- Vulkan (Android, Windows, Linux) or
- OpenGL ES 3.1 (Android 8.0 Oreo or later)
