ReleaseNote 4.0-RC2

Android-x86 4.0-RC2 (Ics-x86).

The Android-x86 project is glad to announce 4.0-RC2 release to public. This is a second release candidate for Android-x86 4.0 stable release. Live CD ISOs are available from our sites, as usual

Key Features

The 4.0-RC2 release is based on the Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich branch). We have fixed and added x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on x86 platforms, especially for tablets and netbooks. Except the features in 4.0-RC1, the additional features in this release are
  • Kernel 3.0.36 with more drivers and bug fixes.
  • Enable Dalvik JIT compiler support.
  • Support some 3G modem.
  • Ready to run arm translator. (You still need to install Intel's libraries from BuilDroid.)
  • Physical keyboard layout selection.
  • Support two cameras.
  • Fake SD card is replaced by internal storage support.
We create targets optimized for different x86 platforms. Choose a suitable image for your platform.

The iso files are hybrid format. That means you can dump the iso into a usb drive and get a bootable usb stick, like

$ dd if=android-x86-4.0-RC2-xxx.iso of=/dev/sdX

where /dev/sdX is the device name of your usb drive.

Known issues

  • Suspend and resume doesn't work on some targets.
  • Not support Ethernet.
