I would like to run Android on arm64 (hardware: hikey).

If I try to run a pv guest, I get the following error:

Starting init: /etc/init exists but couldn't execute it (error -13)
Kernel panic - not syncing: No working init found.  Try passing init=
option to kernel..

this is not a surprise, since Android uses a init system which is quite
different from Linux.

My question is how can I get around this init system issue on Xen arm64?

It does not look like a Xen arm64 issue for me. What is the command
line option of your kernel?

No, it is not directly a Xen ARM64 issue. I guess the solution would be
to compile the Android Kernel with Xen Support.

If I understand correctly, the log you posted was from your android, right?

If so, you may either forgot to enable some options (such as CONFIG_XEN_BLKDEV_FRONTEND) or did not specify the block on the command line.
