  1. Thanks your software, may I know how the detail setup of share folder / USB share between android and PC ?

  2. Thank you ! the system is working fine. The problem is that i cant donwload applications from google play since it says that my device is not compatible.
    Any suggestions?

  3. Unfortunately that is the limitation of the current Android x86 for computer. Not all applications are compatible with it. Recently there is a good hack to run ARM apps like Angry Birds games on Android x86. The details are here. I'm looking forward more Android x86 improvements in future.

  4. Does it support whatsapp?? plz help. thnk u.

  5. Hi,

    I am using the Android-x86 image for tablet with phone capabilities version, the WhatsApp Messenger works without crash but I wasn't allowed to proceed the app's device verification process with an alert message that tablets currently not supported.

    So you can give it a try on vbox86p for phone version and see whether it work. If it doesn't work, I would recommend run WhatsApp on BlueStacks app player.


  6. I keep getting this every time I try to open it:

    Failed to open a session for the virtual machine buildroid_vbox86t_4.0.4_r1.1-20120530_gapps.Nonexistent host networking interface, name 'vboxnet0' (VERR_INTERNAL_ERROR).Result Code: NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)Component: ConsoleInterface: IConsole {1968b7d3-e3bf-4ceb-99e0-cb7c913317bb}

  7. configure only one processor on virtualbox

  8. Solution that worked for me:
    1) install Virtualbox
    2) Download this (Android with Whatsapp included), remove spaces in Link:
    hotfile. com/ dl/ 187397473/ 86846cf/ Android_4.1.1_WhatsApp. ova. html
    3) Doubleclick the downloade file and import into virtualbox
    4) Rum the machine
    5) Select your language in Settings menu
    6) Start Whatsapp in Android
    7) There you go, have fun :)
