Build 20130228

Test build 20130228 for Android-x86 4.2 (Jb-x86).

The Android-x86 project is glad to announce a new test build 20130228 for public testing. This is a test release for android-x86 4.2. The live CD iso is available as usual

Key Features

The test build 20130228 is based on the latest Android 4.2.2 release (JB-MR1.1 branch). We have fixed and added x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on most x86 platforms, especially for tablets and netbooks. The key features in this release are
  • Use the latest kernel 3.8.0 to support more drivers.
  • OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon and Intel chipsets (not included chips with PVR). You may disable it by adding HWACCEL=0 to the cmdline if you have trouble to use it.
  • Support Multi-touch, Wifi, Audio, G-sensor, Camera and Backlight control.
  • Simulate SDCard by internal storage.
  • Auto mount usb driver and sdcard on plugging.
  • Multi-user support (max 8).
  • Support Ethernet (DHCP only).
  • Support VM like Virtual Box.

Released File

Since the jb-x86 branch we try to create a universal image for most x86 platforms. The plan is still in an early stage. Please report bugs to the android-x86 forum with detailed specs of your machine and error logs.
  • android-x86-4.2-20130228.iso 

    sha1sum: d9843bbccf29d64ae0cb4d6b30d1fad7e29f6cdd

The iso file is hybrid format. That means you can dump the iso into a usb drive and get a bootable usb stick, like

$ dd if=android-x86-4.2-20130228.iso of=/dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.

Known issues

  • Suspend and resume doesn't work.
  • Some apps stuck on i915/i965 devices.
  • Bluetooth not work.
  • Not support Arm translator.
