Android OS


Hi, all liveandroid fans

Welcome to the amazing LiveAndroid World!

Before you are using liveandroid, please read me first.

Want to give Google Android a try, but don't feel like buying a T-Mobile G1? LiveAndroid is a LiveCD(and LiveUSB) for Google Android OS running on x86 platforms, you can running it in virtualbox or vmware, also burn the image to a disc, stick it in a CD-ROM drive, reboot your computer and you can check out Android without installing it or affecting any files on your PC.

LiveAndroid porting based on eee_701 Android OS, modify system/core/init, recompile kernel with aufs&sqsquashfs support to smaller size.

We released liveandroid v0.1 on May 15, 2009. Now, we released liveandroid v0.2 on July 6, 2009, based on android cupcake 1.5, we highly recommend liveandroid v0.2.
