Android-x86 is a project to port Android open source project to x86 platform, Run Android on Your PC.

The test build 20130228 is based on the latest Android 4.2.2 release (JB-MR1.1 branch). We have fixed and added x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on most x86 platforms, especially for tablets and netbooks.

The key features in this release are:

  • OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon and Intel chipsets (not included chips with PVR). You may disable it by adding HWACCEL=0 to the cmdline if you have trouble to use it.
  • Support Multi-touch, Wifi, Audio, G-sensor, Camera and Backlight control.
  • Simulate SDCard by internal storage.
  • Auto mount usb driver and sdcard on plugging.
  • Multi-user support (max 8).
  • Support Ethernet (DHCP only).
