No ARM EABI System image available as of Android 8.0 Oreo

Hello,

maybe no one noticed yet, but this is probably why a test on Oreo emulator did not work.
I just saw that there is no ARM EABI image available as of Oreo Android 8.0.
And LC does not support other than ARM.

1. Do we need an update/feature request to deploy for x86 mobile devices? or better is something like this planned for LC?
2. Do the ARM apk's work on x86 (probably they do with some kind of fallback?) I think so as Panos did test a stack on an 8.1 Android Pixel which then complied with Google's rules, but on lower devices does not and is therefore rejected
3. How can we test for Oreo 8 and higher (not that i need it directly, but maybe others do)


Kind regards,
Sphere
Please, stop quoting things my brother did not say. Thank you. Hans Zweistein.
