 Install Android x84 using Linux | Debian | Kali Linux


What is android x84?
Android-x86 is an open-source project that makes an unofficial porting of the Android mobile operating system developed by the Open Handset Alliance to run on devices powered by x86 processors, rather than RISC-based ARM chips. Developers Chih-Wei Huang and Yi Sun originated the project in 2009. In short, this means android OS will run in computer processors rather than RISC-based ARM chips. Let's install it now.

How to install?

The installation process is easy. Just go through the steps below -

Step -1.) Go to this link and click on "Download from FossHub".

Step -2.) Select 32-bit or 64-bit .rpm files according to your system architecture. ( Note only select .rpm files). Mine is 64 bit So I will go with it.

Wait until the download finishes. 

Note: Step 3 is not applicable for (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/SUSE) users since the rpm package can be installed in those by default. Skip on to Step 4

Step -3.) Now time to install alien for executing the .rpm file. Install alien package for your Linux distro. 'Alien' is a computer program that converts different Linux package distribution file formats. It supports conversion between Linux Standard Base, RPM, deb, Stampede (.slp), and Slackware (tgz) packages.

  • Ubuntu/ LinuxMint/ Debian users can do

  • sudo apt install alien

Step -4.) Now open the terminal where you have saved the file and run the commands below -

 Note: The installation may take around 3-5 minutes depending upon the read/ write speeds.

For (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/SUSE) users, as you all know run:

sudo rpm -ivh android-x86-version.rpm

For (Ubuntu/Debian/Linux Mint) users, run:

sudo alien -ci android-x86-version.rpm

Volá! 🤩 Now you are ready with android x86 desktop O.S.
Reboot and you will see a boot entry with Android x86 tag. If it doesn't show up, just change the grub timeout using Grub Customizer or manually press Esc while booting up to show boot entries.


Note :

  • Do remember to enable Native Bridge from android settings to enjoy android desktop to the prime.
  • You could launch the installed Android-x86 in a QEMU virtual machine if needed.
  • To uninstall the O.S files and boot entry. Use the usual package uninstalling method of you distribution.

Enjoy your day 💖 :).
