How to get started?

  1. These are the officially supported devices, but Android-x86 should work on others too. An old list of supported devices / hardware can be found HERE.

Android-x86 4.0 has been tested / it should work on MSI 110W, Asus EeePC or some Asus laptops/tablets and Tegav2.

  1. Download UNetbootin to flash the ISO image to a thumb drive. Or you can burn the ISO image to a CDROM.

  2. Boot and enjoy! If you like it, reboot and select the install option.

A couple Android-x86 4.0 (ICS) tips:

  • *When using it in VirtualBox, make sure you select ”Disable Mouse Integration”
  • *Disable screen autorotate from the Android-x86 settings, or else some application might rotate it for you (and that’s quite annoying if your device doesn’t support it)
