  • Support for WiFi is missing. ODROID-C2 board has no WiFi on board but I can add WiFi with USB dongle, I use dongle with chipset RT5370. This adapter doesn't work with Android for Le Potato and there are rumors that there is no known USB WiFi dongle that works. Le Potato board has Fast Ethernet on board but many Android application written for Smart phone cannot use Ethernet and require WiFi or 4G/GPRS/LTE. 
  • Le Potato battery overheats! ;-) Well, there is no battery on Le Potato board but Android (Nugget) reads that battery temperature is 42C. Several application check battery temperature and when battery is hot, they just wait untill battery cools down, this is a security feature to prevent destruction of battery. Battery temperature can be checked with several applications, for example AIDA64. Examples of applications those check battery temperature are Boinc and DreamLab. Boinc has temperature threshold configurable but DreamLab doesn't allow user to change it.

    Applications designed for mobile phone are displayed with wrong orientation or are not displayed well. Example applications with bad behavior on Android Nugget are APKPure package manager or DreamLab. This problem can be fixed with other application that controls display orientation. I have good experience with application "Set Orientation v1.1.4" (https://apkpure.com/set-orientation/com.googlecode.eyesfree.setorientation)

    APK cannot be downloaded from Internet. Android Nugget for Le Potato comes with Internet browser that cannot download files. And there is no package manager, like Google Play Store, installed on that Android, so there is no way to install new applications. Applications can be added but they have to be downloaded on other computer and saved to USB flash dongle and then installed on Le Potato Android from local file system (USB flash dongle). One of the first application you want to install is better Internet browser...
