Currently living out in the most eastern part of Canada. When not blogging about tech stuff I like going out with friends and playing a bit of footie
Did you know that you could run Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 software on your actual PC? Learn2crack has made an easy tutorial which allows users to install the mobile operating system on your PC and tweak it, install apps and do basically whatever you want with it. Please note though that proceeding to do this is at your own risk.
Now to start installing Jelly Bean you have to install VirtualBox on your computer then open it and select "new". Enter any name that you want to use, then after this select the type as Linux, and the version as "other linux". Upon completion of this, select next.
In the next dialogue box, enter the memory size of your choice. You should be mindful of the fact though, that Android JellyBean requires at least 512MB of memory to run, so you might want to use a little bit more but it is your choice of course. Once you have done this select next.
In the next dialogue box you will see a place where it will allow you to create a virtual hard drive. Select this option, then choose VDI. After this you can decide whether you want it to be fixed or dynamically allocated, according to your preferences of course. You should also take note here that I minimum of 1 GB is needed for installation.
The next step after this is to select a virtual device and then choose settings. A dialogue box will soon appear upon which you will go to storage and proceed to storage tree and proceed to empty. In the attributes part, choose the JellyBean iso file we downloaded earlier, then check Live CD/DVD. Proceed to clicking OK after this.
After doing this you need to start the virtual device and then choose the option on install Android x86 to hard drive.
On the screen after this, you want to choose where it says Create/Modfiy partitions. After this you want to then create a new primary bootable partition and then select where it says write. After the writing is complete you will then quit.
The next step is to install Android in sda and select type and ext3, choose yes for instaling grub.
After all this is done you then want to remove live iso from the virtual box and proceed to reboot. After this you can boot into Android JellyBean 4.2.2
