How to create an Android Live virtual machine

Experiment with Androidx86

Virtual machines are among the best ways to experiment with a new operating system. Now, we can download a specialized version of Android that can run within a virtual machine. In this gallery, I will go through the steps to create the virtual machine. I would be remiss if I didn't send credit to Eric Sloof of NTPRO.NL, who showed this in a recent blog post.

This gallery is based on the version of the Android operating system. This is not a Google project, but technologists across the board will appreciate the ability to run an Android-like operating systems on other platforms.
