Android – Running Real Android 4.1.1 From Emulator

Why not BlueStack I wrote before ?

BlueStack is nice, however it is based on Android OS 2.3.4 , you can’t run some APPs higher than it.

So, I started to search, I get this finally. Using a VirtualBox, it can be connected to Internet, I tried some before, the setup of Network made me MAD, it’s not stable, sometimes it can’t be connect. And the main point, the Emulator is not that stable and very SLOW.

AndroVM solved these kind of problems. And this Image included Google Market !  Let’s begin !

Requirement :
1) Windows / Mac / Linux / Solaris . ( I just tried on Windows7 )
2) Go here to Download : http://androvm.org/blog/download/

Read the different below and pick one you like. I do suggest you make a folder to put it, I put it to other drive as after downloaded, you don’t need to run it, this is a VirtualBox image.

3) Download & Install VirtualBox right below links :
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

4) Run VirtualBox, Click File > “Import Appliance…”

5) Open appliance, choice the “androVM_vbox86XX_4.1.1_r4-20121119-gapps-houdini-flash.ova” that you downloaded before.

6) After created, you’ll see it’s at left hand side. Right click it, go “Settings”.
7) Go Network, change “Attached to :” to NAT then hit OK.

8) You may run it now.

Some Information :
1) When you clicked into VirtualBox, your Mouse can’t get it out of that Windows, use “Right Ctrl” key to escape.
2) How to go back home ? Click Keyboard “Home” key
3) Back key = “Esc”
4) Menu key = “F1″
5) if you leave it a bit of  time or you turn it off wrongly, it will goes to lock screen, press “Home” key to draw it back.
You can disable screen lock in the Settings (“Development->Always stay awake”).


 

Updates for resize Android Resolution:

1) Download one of your OS as below.

AndroVMplayer archives :

*Remember check download page for updates. http://androvm.org/blog/download/

2) You have to configure the first virtual network card to be connected to a “host only network”, Second Network to be “NAT”.
3) Run Android, “AndroVM configuration” ( you must run once…)
4) use “Hardware OpenGL”
5) Save and Don’t click reboot yet,
6) From Windows/Mac/Linux, Config AndroVMplayer like below :

Windows :
You can create a text file, type it for :

Phone Version like below:

AndroVMplayer 480 800 240

to have a 480×800 resolution with 240 DPI.

Tablet Version like below:

AndroVMplayer 1280 720 160

to have a 1280×720 resolution with 160 DPI.

Save it and rename it to AnyNameYouLike.bat as same as  AndroVMplayer folder, then double click this bat file, a window pops up, then click reboot in Android and Done.

For Linux/Mac OS versions, you have to use the “run.sh” script to start AndroVMplayer, for example “run.sh 1280 720 160″, whereas on Windows, you directly start AndroVMplayer.exe, for example “AndroVMplayer 1280 720 160″.

But for phone versions, if you set below 800 x 480 and Tablet 640 x 480, it may be FC ( Force Close in any page ), it’s not stable actually. 

Known bugs :

  • Hardware OpenGL/Intel HD/Windows : On most Intel HD drivers running Windows, the AndroVMplayer might crash (in the driver DLL) when starting Android ; you may have to restart AndroVMplayer an important number of times before it suceeds
  • Hardware OpenGL/WebView : On some GPUs (mostly NVidia ?), the browser and all apps which use the WebView component might show scrambled HTML content
NB : This is the list of fixes/improvements since the last “official relase” (20121106) on this web site (you may have used intermediate releases poste on the google group).
NB2 : I’ve closed comments on most of the blog posts on the web site. If you have any query, problems, or anything to say about AndroVM please use the dedicated google group.

Of course, you can use this method to get Free Stickers :)

After this step, go download Hacked LINE as below link and I post the free stickers again and again :)
