Thanks for providing.. but that video is confusing without documentation..
First assumed it was already in image format to just reimage an SD
then after extracting and realizing it was a .bin file, see there is more to it.

In the video you show your on a raspberry pi already.. confusing.
Assuming that you flashed the SD using a raspbery pi, (This is usually done with a Desktop)
assuming I could do this in a Virtual Machine..

Assuming you have two SD card, one with Raspbian installed and used to boot up with the raspberry pi 3, then you can use this linux system to flash the Android image to another SD card.

The video just tech you how to flash the image to SD card in linux environment.
If your virtual machine has linux system installed, you can uses this method to flash the image and extend the userdata partition.

I got it figured out..

Actually, Etcher image writer is able to write .bin files. I didn't know that.
Got it imaged and working...

Now just need to install playstore..or some Android package manager.

Thanks..

I downloaded it extracted it and used etcher to flash it but when I put it in it does the rainbow screen then turns black and stays black. How did you get it to work?

@brobwind so are you just using a usb card reader? that makes it much less sorcery.
