Google Android in VirtualBox

You can run Goolge Android in VirtualBox for the sheer fun of it !

Download the part files from the link below.

Then from the console browse to the folder where you have downloaded the files and run the below command.

cat liveandroidv0.x.iso.001 liveandroidv0.x.iso.002 > liveandroidv0.x.iso

where x can be the version number.

Now create a new VirtualBox system and add the ISO for boot and it is not necessary to have a hard disk for the system as the ISO is bootable and it boots directly and doesn't require the hard disk at all.

Viola ! you can see Android booting up.

This article assumes that you know how to create a VirtualBox system.
