Android-x86 4.0.4 RC2 live and installation iso
The installation process of Android-x86 4.0-RC2 is straightforward and exactly same with its previous release which I had wrote in older blog posts. You may refer to the posts below for various Android-x86 installations:
- How to Dual Boot Android-x86 and Windows
- How to Dual Boot Android-x86 and Linux Ubuntu
- How to install Android-x86 on Thumb/Flash Drive
- How to install Android-x86 on VirtualBox
After successfully installed Android-x86 4.0-RC2, you need to install Intel's libraries from Buildroid manually in order to get Android-x86 to run ARM applications:
- Download libhoudini.so and put to /system/lib/
- Download libdvm_houdini.so and put to /system/lib/
- Download arm libs, extract the archive and put to /system/lib/arm/
The outcome same as what I have tested on the Buildroid running ARM apps. The Angry Birds Space game in my test was slow. Not all ARM apps will work or work accordingly after applying these 3 Intel's libraries above. But after applying these libraries will enable the Android-x86 platform to have a wider range of apps selection to install from Google Play Store/Android Market.
