Android x86 virtualbox

 

I would like to use Android-x86 2.2 as an emulator on my Windows 7. I have downloaded VirtualBox and the ISO, and I've made a virtual machine with it, but I can't set the resolution to 320x480 or something similar.

to my .vbox file and I did it. Then I added UVESA_MODE=320x480 and vga=ask to the boot config. When it boots, I have to press Enter to see the available options, but there is no 320x480 among them. How can I get it to work?

Figure out what is the ‘hex’-value for your VideoMode :
2.1. Start the VM
2.2. In GRUB menu enter a (Android > =6.0: e )
2.3. In the next screen append vga=ask and press Enter
2.4. Find your resolution and write down/remember the 'hex'-value for Mode column

Android x86 virtualbox

It all started in 2009 with Android 1.5 Cupcake  and now five years later, Google ‘s infatuation with sweets lives on through KitKat .

Thanks to VirtualBox and the Android-x86 project , we now have unfettered access to the latest treats from Google’s assorted code bakery.

As I’m writing this, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean is Google’s newest concoction; however, what’s the fun in that when everyone’s favorite chocolate covered vanilla waffer, KitKat , is already out as a Release Candidate?

This document tells how to run the eeepc.iso inside VirtualBox . The tested version are 3.0.2 on Fedora 11, and 2.2.4 on Windows XP and Fedora 11.

If you want to use higher resolution, you can edit the boot option by pressing TAB, change vga=788 (800x600) to vga=791 (1024x768) or vga=794 (1280x1024), and press Enter. You can also use vga=ask to see all available modes. But please note Android will only work under 16-bit mode.

Basically the eeepc.iso is a live cd system. Like other live cd, all data are saved to ramdisk, so will lose after power off. However, it is possible to save data to the virtual disk of vbox by specifying some boot options. This section describes the details. But you need good Linux expertise to complete it.
