Here are some of the issues that occur in android x86 4.2 jelly bean are:


1. Android will sometimes freeze or lag.
2. Android is not equipped with ARM translator. ARM translator as I mentioned above that with this android without ARM translator then some android apk apps will not work properly or even unworkable.
3. Can not suspend or resume application so its better to disable screen lock to not activated.

  1. I've seen Easy2Boot is used to make a multi-os boot usb, but I'm looking to find a way to permanently install multiple-os' on a very old laptop. I've read that the order of install is important in order for all the oses to appear in the boot menu.

    What would you recommend to install a 3 boot: WinXp + Linux (Ubuntu) + android-x86?

    Thanks!
