Hello,

 

Please look at my comments below.

1.
  Yocto is a system to build Linux BSP.

   https://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/2.0/yocto-project-qs/yocto-project-qs.html

Linux is a popular OS whereas Android is a framework executing on top of the Linux kernel.

Details of NXP implementation may be found in the documentation on the Web.

Android:

  No, Yocto BSP is not intended for integration with Android BSP.

3.
  The i.MX Android release source code consists of three parts:
• NXP i.MX public source code, which is maintained in the CodeAurora Forum repository.
• AOSP Android public source code, which is maintained in android.googlesource.com.
• NXP i.MX Android proprietary source code package, which is maintained in http://www.NXP.com.

 

Regards,
Yuri.
