Description

Some development work, like bootloader hacking, is much easier to do when Replicant is running in a virtual machine rather than on a phone/tablet or a dev board.

There are likely also use cases for end users where knowing how to install and run Replicant in a virtual machine is useful as well.

There is a post here related to emulating Exynos 4210 BootROM (which is in the Replicant supported Galaxy S2) in QEMU: https://fredericb.info/2018/03/emulating-exynos-4210-bootrom-in-qemu.html

Here is the git repo for the Exynos 4210 BootROM in QUMU: https://github.com/frederic/qemu-exynos-bootrom

Three years ago it was reported that Replicant could be run in VirtualBox using Replicant's SDK: https://redmine.replicant.us/boards/3/topics/10341?r=12267#message-12267

Since we don't have a Replicant 6 SDK, those instructions can't be used directly by us for documentation.
