Can Replicant be installed on VirtualBox in Linux mint 17.2 64 bit OS

Added by Anilkumar Kagi about 4 years ago

Hello everybody,

I wanted to install Replicant, as a guest virtual-machine on VirtualBox on my "SamsungRV509, LinuxMint17.2-64bit, laptop".

Can it be done?

If possible can I be helped by giving a step by step guidance to install it.

I would greatly appreciate and be grateful to any guidance in this regard.

Thank you

Anil

The best way to find out is to try and see! Our installation guides provide step by step instructions for installing Replicant.

I don't want to deter you from testing it, (but I'm in doubt it will work out of the box).
AFAIK VirtualBox can't emulate ARM processors, yet. So you need a x86 Replicant image or give QEMU (http://wiki.qemu.org/Main_Page) a try, (which can emulate ARM architectures).

I don't have time to work myself into it, at the moment. But possibly this two links:

(used with a Replicant image) could help you find alternative ways to do it...

It's easy :), I just follow the instructions from here:
http://www.modaco.com/forums/topic/289928-testing-getting-an-emulator-up-and-running-a-full-rom-with-the-market-etc/

Just download ReplicantSDK from here:
http://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/ReplicantSDK

Extract it's content and cd to ./replicant-sdk_linux-x86/tools

Run the following line:
./android create avd -n enhanced -t 1

You will be prompted to create a hardware profile. This is optional.

Finally run:
./emulator -avd enhanced

And there you go :)
