Now you can do away with the partition creation. I have prepared a pre partitioned android image. Just burn it on to a sd card using or win32diskimager and proceed with gapps installation. Scroll to 12:28 for Gapps installation instructions.

    error: device not found
    error: device not found

    and on Android screen showing just LOGO
    Thanks for advice!

    I have followed the instructions several times with no luck. First, the layout of Android once booted up does not match what is shown in the video. Second, I determined the IP address of my RPi and entered it into the file (triple checked both the address and the file) and I get a constant error: protocol not found (no status) and error: device not found. Can't figure out what I am doing wrong here. Any ideas?
