Android-x86 - Jelly Bean
CHIPMAKER Intel has produced an early release of its Android 4.2.2 source code for x86 processors. Intel's push into the Android smartphone market is set to gain pace this year after a stuttering start in 2012, and a vital component for its potential success is the latest version of Android. The firm has released an early version of Android 4.2.2 for developers delivering a number of changes including Linux 3.8.0 and UEFA boot support.
The Chromebook Pixel is the best Chrome OS laptop money can buy — but at $1299 and up you'll need a fair bit of money to buy one. That's a lot of money to spend on a laptop that runs a browser-based operating system, but it turns out the Pixel isn't limited to just running Chrome OS.
Andriod-x86 is an unofficial project to port Google's Android operating system to run on devices with x86 processors... like the ones made by Intel and AMD. In other words, it lets you run Android on your laptop or desktop PC.
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
Summary: My hopes for official Android support on the Chromebook Pixel are just that for now: Hopes. You can install and Android 4.2 on the Pixel, or most other laptops, however, without trashing your computer's native operating system.
You are a developer using a Windows system ( Windows 8, 7 or even older) to develop your Android* app. You want to use Intel Android* system image source to compile your own version of Android* for either emulator or VirtualBox. You downloaded the System image source (Intel_x86_sysimg_4.2_Source_Files.zip) from Android* 4.2 (Jelly Bean) x86 Emulator System Image.
The x86 Android* 4.2 (Jelly Bean) emulator system image enables you to run an emulation of Android on your development machine. In combination with the Android SDK, you can test your Android applications on a virtual Android device based on Intel Architecture.
This document will guide you through installing the Intel® Atom™ x86 image for Android* Jelly Bean, which can be used for development on Intel's x86 architecture.
Android-x86 has released the first iso image file of Android Jelly Bean on Christmas Eve available for download. The jb-x86 is based on Android 4.2.1 and this is the first Jelly Bean test release version, so it is possible to see a few bugs here and there. I have tested it on Asus laptop and so far everything seems to work reasonably well, including the WIFI connection. As we expected, Android jb-x86 runs smoother and responsive compared to the AndroVM Jelly Bean.
Chip maker Intel appears set to assault the smartphone market with a new processor, one that was leaked not too long ago as the dual-core Merrifield, a successor to the Medfield Atom processor that failed to impress too much.
XDA Developer Unrealmanu has coded a slick Android emulator for Intel x86 devices. Yes, Jar of Beans emulates Android Jelly Bean (4.1.1) and supports Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (HAXM) - which offers hardware acceleration for the emulator to improve overall performance.
The AndroVM (Previously known as Buildroid) is Daniel Fages' project which focus on Android Virtualization by building Android operating system for VirtualBox.

The x86 Android* 4.1 (Jelly Bean) emulator system image enables you to run an emulation of Android on your development machine. In combination with the Android SDK, you can test your Android applications on a virtual Android device based on Intel Architecture.
Lost in the commotion over the iPhone 5 news yesterday, Intel announced during the first day of its yearly developer conference that it has completed porting the latest version of Android in 4.1 Jelly Bean from its ARM-based underpinnings to the x86 chip platform, which would allow the chipmaker to develop chipsets and related hardware around the port of the operating system.
Summary: The company has reportedly got Android 4.1 working on its architecture, although it is unclear when those who have picked up handsets such as the Orange San Diego will get the upgrade.
