I can't find a tutorial about this for whatever reason, so does anybody know how to install Andy? I have pretty much all the software I think I would need (Virtual box, an Android ISO,Andy.EXE which I tried running using wine) so if anybody could help me or provide me with a good tutorial that would be great. (i also saw a few tutorials on how to dual boot Android, I don't want to do that before anybody suggests it). I'm not a total newbie and I feel comfortable with the terminal, I can edit some things using VIM, I can find my why around the file system, I have written a scrypt before, etc but please don't suggest anything super complicated.
As Andy OS does not support Linux natively, you can try Anbox github.com/anbox/anbox for better support and performance.– digiwizkidJun 15, 2017 at 9:48
@digiwizkid Really? I was told that it does, I can't remember where but I swear I was told it supports Linux. Are there any Linux compatible emulators that are more intended for gaming?– Sol33t303Jun 15, 2017 at 10:04
No officially they don't, see andyroid.net I am not sure about gaming but you can try Anbox– digiwizkidJun 15, 2017 at 10:09
@digiwizkid I just found where I saw it aptgadget.com/best-android-emulators-linux but I guess it doesn't support Linux then, a bit later I'll try Anbox– Sol33t303Jun 15, 2017 at 10:14
They state that here is a linux version in the making.
in this article the download link takes me to a plain text page where it says:
"Andy doesnt run on a mobile device, The Linux version is closed for Alpha if you want to join the testers please email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit us again after July 30"
July 30 of what year I don't know, i'm gonna send em a mail for joining the alpha testing group
I did a more extensive search and found that the system requirements say it's compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 and up also I noticed they removed a reference to linux in this article, google still shows the old text..
I will post a update when they get back to me to let you know what the current standing is.
Edit: Genymotion is what I would recommend for the time being. Do keep a eye out for Andy tho Genymotion is very good but it is aimed at developers, if you want you can read the last link I posted they explain some differences there.
You have to use a virtual machine to set it up. You can download the Oracle VM VirtualBox from here.
After downloading and installing the virtual machine properly
create a virtual machine and install ANDY OS... easy as rocket science.
There is also an alternative to use Genymotion which is also wine-able, but I don't use it so I can't vouch for it's stability.
1Too late, I already did just that. But since you are correct I will accept your answer :) Jul 14, 2017 at 13:08
did you install an OS on the virtual box or you just installed the app?– BeulahJul 20, 2017 at 19:52
Which one did you do? Installed VirtualBox and Andy OS on it or installed Genymotion instead? Aug 11, 2019 at 16:58
