Released Android 4.2 Jelly Bean x86

 

 

After reading that a little while ago Google had blocked access to the site Android x86 en Google Code and that then allowed access again, I decided to look for more information about said project, more than anything because of the curiosity that the operation of this system caused me on my cell phone under said architecture (Intel Atom x86).

I was surprised by entering the official website of the project to see that they had released an ISO of the latest version of the system. As I was a bit bored, I decided to download it and test its performance. Here are some screenshots:

 

For the short time that I was testing it I can say that it behaves quite well, fluid. Let us also bear in mind that being a development version not everything will work as it should and there are problems.

To finish I leave the download link of the ISO for the curious:

Download Android 4.2.2 x86

    Ohhhh, I have never tested Android on a virtual machine. I guess I'll take a look at it, see how it is. Downloading…

    Android OS can be tested in Virtual Box,: O.

    What are the characteristics that I have to put to the MV ... thanks for the help, and for the post 😀

      The same I say, recently I tried to test it in virtualbox 4.2, but the graphics system never wanted to start.

        to install android in VB use the same specifications as any linux better is the ubuntu with more strings

    2.    Daniel Rojas said

      I simply put 1Gb of RAM, approx 5Gb disk and nothing else, it started the first time. I tried this on the desktop PC, when I wanted to start it in a VM on the notebook it kept the word "Android" as if it were in a terminal and it logged me in as ROOT, but it did not start the video. Who depends on the machine, I don't know.
      Also as Tarquin indicates below, if they use the Android SDK they have access to the emulator. I tested the emulator under Aptana and Eclipse and it ran fine but significantly slower than this x86 port.

      Regards!

        Ahh sorry, in system I selected Linux and Other Linux

    I understand that this project was born to use android in Netbooks, like some that with the factory pre-loaded system, I tested it in old Builds (ICS) on an Acer Aspire One d257 and it was the best except for something extremely important: the Wifi, since it was a Broadcom, so I suppose it should go in any other laptop / netbook that uses another network card. For those who comment that they did not know that android could be emulated, did they ever try to use the Android SDK? includes an emulator ^ _ ^

    1.    Daniel Rojas said

      It's true, I used that emulator with Aptana and Eclipse to test applications, although as I said in a comment above, it usually works slower than this alternative

  4.   Stif said

    I will try it too. Thanks for the post 😀

    The ideal would be to be able to use Ancroid applications on GNU / Linux, I know there are emulators but I was referring to something like a Wine for Android.

    One question, do you know if Google Play (Android Market) can be accessed from Android x86, is that I know that from the google sdk not: /

    1.    Daniel Rojas said

      Sisi, it's perfectly accessible 🙂

  7.   Blitzkrieg said

    Excellent. I'm going to try it

  8.   satan AG said

    Excellent I will dare to try. Thank you.

    They have to do an ohmyzsh post.

    I copied it to a USB from a with unetbootin and it worked great but I couldn't connect it to wifi. Thanks for the information. Regards.

  11.   Manual of the Source said

    I just installed it on another partition (I didn't use VirtualBox because I wanted a real, non-virtualized experience). All beautiful, but every time I try to connect via Wi-Fi the system dies; and as expected, it does not include support for USB or Ethernet connections. Until you solve that, it will be nothing more than a useless curiosity. 😛

    I'm also going to have to configure GRUB manually since neither Arch's GRUB detects Android nor Android's GRUB detects Arch. Interestingly, they both detect Windows 8 without problems, and that's why I'm writing from it now. 😀

    I just installed it on a usb and I boot it from there the only thing I don't like is that you can no longer create a fake SD in the end I still don't know how to pass the files in it since I was passing it in the img of the sd files with ultraiso

  13.   miguel angel said

    Download the lili usb creator to mount the image on a usb
    here the link
    http://www.linuxliveusb.com/
    I have run it on a 2 gb usb and it works great for me, you can also install it directly to the hard disk here the tutorial on how to install it

      The preparation and others in Windows is all OK, the problem is that it does not detect the hard disks, it only sees the pendrive ... any solution?

  14.   princepedragon said

    I have installed several things in my virtualbox to emulate mac, windows, arch, backtrack, wifiway, etc but I have never tried android I will see if it works downloading ...

    interesting for testing ...

    I just downloaded it and installed it on a 3gb ext32 partition. I did on my hard drive. Previously I already had Windows 8 and Linux Mint installed and when I installed the Android I delete the grub and install the Android one, therefore I could only access Android and Windows 8, I recovered my Grub with the Rescatux disk but now I can only access to Windows 8 and Linux Mint.

    How can I go about adding Android 4.2 to my Grub?
    Can it be installed or is it just a version that must be installed every time you log in?

    Thanks for your support.

      I have Windows 8 installed on SDA1, Linux Mint on SDA6 and now Android on SDA4.

      I found that I could add the following instructions to the grub.cfg in the / boot / grub folder of my linux but I already did and it did not work for me.

      ### Android 4.2

      menuentry "Android-x86 4.0-RC2" {
      set root = '(hd0,4)'
      linux /Android-x86/android-4.2-test/kernel quiet root = / dev / ram0 androidboot.hardware = eeepc acpi_sleep = s3_bios, s3_mode SRC = / android-4.0-RC2 vga = 788

      They could guide me to know what my mistake is.
