Released Files

This release contains four files.

Except the traditional ISO files, we also provided android-x86 files as a Linux package rpm. It allows Linux users to easily install the release into an existing Linux device with a standalone ext4 root partition. On an rpm based device (Fedora/Red Hat/CentOS/...), just install it like a normal rpm package:

sudo rpm -ivh cm-x86-13.0-r1.x86_64.rpm

All files will be installed to the /cm-x86-13.0-r1/ subdirectory and a boot entry will be added to grub2 menu. Reboot and choose cm-x86 item from the menu to enter the system.
To uninstall it:

sudo rpm -e cm-x86
On a deb based device (Debian/Ubuntu/LinuxMint/...), please use the alien tool to install it:
sudo apt install alien
sudo alien -ci cm-x86-13.0-r1.x86_64.rpm

To use an ISO file, Linux users could just dump the it into a usb drive to create a bootable usb stick like

dd if=cm-x86_64-13.0-r1.iso of=/dev/sdX

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

Windows's users can use the tool Win32 Disk Imager to create a bootable usb stick.

You can choose one of these files depends on your devices. In doubt, try the 32-bit files for legacy BIOS devices and 64-bit files for UEFI devices. Please read this page about how to install it to the device.
