In 2009, I started the Android-x86 Open Source Project as a passion project. I am a computer engineer, a software developer and this is what gets me up in the morning. However over time, I began to see that this project had much greater potential than I had first thought. We had laid the foundation to spread the use of Android to as many of the common x86 platforms in the world as possible.
I’m glad to announce an official partnership with Jide Technology, the creators of Remix OS, because I believe they can help accelerate us towards achieving our goals.
This partnership is a natural fit since we both strive to make Android PCs a reality. Remix OS seeks to create a familiar experience for Android users in a PC environment, and the Android-x86 Project has laid the foundation for this to happen. Together, Remix OS for PC provides a full Android PC experience.
I value this type of partnership, one in which we can push the boundaries of what is possible for the future of computing and fill a vital void in Android so that you can use it to create content as easily as you consume content.
The Android-x86 Project will continue to be an independent open source project. We will work closely with Jide Technology to push forward Android running on x86 PCs so that the experience and the technology advances together. Jide will also contribute to the x86 community.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all the developers who have ever contributed to the Android-x86 Open Source Project for making this possible.

Android-x86 Project - Run Android on Your PC
This is a project to port Android open source project to x86 platform, formerly known as "patch hosting for android x86 support". The original plan is to host different patches for android x86 support from open source community. A few months after we created the project, we found out that we could do much more than just hosting patches. So we decide to create our code base to provide support on different x86 platforms, and set up a git server to host it.
This is an open source project licensed under Apache Public License 2.0. Some components are licensed under GNU General Public License (GPL) 2.0 or later. If you think we did something great, consider making a donation.

The tests are done by the project members and others from android-porting group.
Most of the models can run the native resolutions via i915 driver. Thanks to the kernel mode setting (kms) feature introduced since kernel 2.6.29.latest release (get it).
We provides a complete, compilable and workable source tree. Read GetSourceCode for how to use it.

Of course, there are other people who gave helps. But there are too many e-mails and it is very hard for me to go through each e-mail to find the related person to list here. So, if you think we missed your name here, please kindly drop us an e-mail ( contact at android-x86.org ).
