Is it possible to run replicant in a virtual machine or emulate it

Added by ariel enter over 3 years ago

Hi every one. I'll like to ask if it would be possible to run replicant on a virtual machine using for example AQEMU. Now that I think about it probably the answer is no xD because my computer runs a x86-64 microprocessor, but what about emulate it? Is there any free software for that? Thank you.

The Replicant SDK comes with an emulator (a slightly modified version of qemu) that emulates an ARM build of Replicant. Note that this is not a device build, so the interface is a bit different and looks closer to AOSP.

Thanks Paul. It's easy :), I just followed 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 :)
