I have build an Android Jelly Bean 4.3 image for my Congatec QMX6 board which is built on the iMX6 processor. I have 2 LVDS screens attached to the board, and have managed to set up the system to display on both screens by changing the bootargs (video=mxcfb0:dev=ldb,LDB-XGA,if=RGB24 video=mxcfb1:dev=ldb,LDB-XGA,if=RGB24). I seem to be operating in separate mode, as I can copy and image to the framebuffers /dev/graphics/fb0 and /dev/graphics/fb2 which will display on the the 2 screens respectively. However, Android does not seem to be aware of the two screen setup, and when interacting with the OS I get all activity duplicated on the two screens (they mirror each other). We want to have 2 apps running on the different screens concurrently. Do anyone know how this can be achieved (if it is even possible..)?
