Android x86 jelly bean 4.3 install in virtual box on windows os

For those who always want the latest update ie android x86 here the android 4.3 jellybean x86  has been released and can be used after the previous android 4.2.2 x86 jellybean have to posted a few months ago and although android 4.4 kitkat released but android x86 no news yet about it.

With ​​there are some changes that have been updated and most of this time has been updated too with the support arm translator, which means we can run almost all android apps in google play store,  different with android previous ones is android x86 jellybean 4.2 that not support.

Before we try to install directly to the hard drive perhaps we could try to install android x86 in virtualbox so that we will know what the pros and cons of this android jellybean 4.3 x86. And if it is as expected and works well as the android phones are used. That way we can evaluate for themselves of the advantages and disadvantages of android x86 that we will install, because maybe there will be people who want to dual boot between android and windows that are installed together on PC/Laptop.

And here are some things that have been updated and corrected from the Android x86 source:

- Support ARM translator
- Support bluetooth
- Upgrade 3.10.2 kernel so that it becomes more driver support
- Upgrade Mesa OpenGL ES library to 9.2 devel for support amd radeon acceleration  and intel chipset.
- Also Not able to suspend and resume
- No support superuser.

There are several ways to install android version of this computer or android x86  jellybean 4.3, and I give it two ways.

1. How to install x86 android 4.3 jelly bean on a PC, or laptop computer can see linked below

dual boot android and windows.
The first way above could be see on steps in the link above and the grub setting install grub2win for android-x86 you can see the method in link dual boot android and windows above and add android x86 jellybean 4.3 grub manually below:

# android #
menuentry "Android-4.3-test"{
set root='(hd0,X)'
linux /android-4.3-test/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=android_x86 video=-16 SRC=/android-4.3-test
initrd /android-4.3-test/initrd.img
### End Android ###

note: change the red text with  partition installed on android from your computer example if android on partition or drive D: then replace with (hd0,2) sometimes Drive D: = (hd0,3).

2. The second way to install android-x86 is in a virtual box

Also this steps can be use on Linux ubuntu virtualbox.
  • Download virtualbox windows version if it will install a virtual box in windows here because there are several other options such as Linux and MAC OS X.
  • Download jellybean X86 Android 4.3 iso android-x86-4.3-20130725.iso code@google or Android X86 .org 
  • After downloading the next step is to install virtual box on computer and start preparations to install android in virtual box.
  • Virtualbox installation on ubuntu linux or in windows like windows xp, windows 7 and windows 8 are method.
  • Open Virtual box  already installed on your PC or laptop and then click the new button to create a new virtual Android x86.
