Android-x86Android X86 is a project that ports the open-source version of the Android mobile operating system for computers and tablets; the "X86' refers to a 32-bit X86 processor. This project is small and unaffiliated with the official Android system. The system doesn't have traditional system requirements, as with a standard operating system, but rather a list of tested systems. When installing Android X86, choose a release that best matches your computer.


Tested Systems

Android X86 has been tested with six different systems and manufacturers. The system has installation files configured for ASUS-brand laptops and EeePCs, as well as the Dell Inspiron Mini Duo Tablet PC. The rest of the tested computers are actually tablets, including the Lenovo ThinkPad x61, the ViewSonic ViewPad 10, the Samsung Q1U and the Viliv S5. Even if your computer is one that has not been tested, you can still try out Android X86. The Android X86 developers recommend choosing a release closest to your system, or creating a target based on instructions on the Android X86 website. These instructions are available on the left sidebar. Click "Documentation, and then "Add New Target."
