Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton build version 5 is a total rebuild. The system can run live (from CD or a USB stick) on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn the ISO file to a CD if you want to run the system live on your computer or install it to hard drive. Read about how to burn ISO files. Or skip that. Just use ImgBurn. Nothing can go wrong. You can easily install the system to your hard drive and install new apps. You can also install new apps while running the system live. Google Play Store and is pre-installed so you can just make your choices…
4.0.0-exton-android-x86. Kernel 4.0.0 is the second latest kernel as of 150504.
This version (version 5) replaces all my previous (4) Android-x86 4.4.4 KitKat builds. In version 5 I’ve added GAPPS. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Google+, Maps, YouTube and more apps. Everything just works. It can happen that you get some error messages, but don’t worry. Just close the “error windows”. The installed apps will work.
Read my instruction. It is for AndEX (Android) Lollipop, but the same instruction works for my KitKat version. You can run Android-x86 from a USB stick with persistence. I.e. all system changes will be saved on the stick.
What’s the point?
Well, if you like your Android phone and all the apps you have installed on it I’m sure you will also like to run apps from your laptop. Bigger screen and better sound etc. Read my article About how useful an Android-x86 system can be for the average computer user.
