Following this question, I had a little bit of success installing an X86 port of Android (i.e., BlissOS) on macOS with QEMU. Now I am wondering if I can virtualize a “normal” Android (preferably LineageOS) on any of the conventional FLOSS hypervisors such as VirtualBox, QEMU… (preferably something portable on Windows).
qemu-system-aarch64 versions of QEMU that I expect to do the job. Over here, Alex Bennée is doing some magic with the so-called “ranchu kernel” that I can’t really understand and trust. Meanwhile, on this post it’s being said that the upstream QEMU hasn’t inherited the graphic acceleration back from Google’s Android Studio Emulator.
Now my questions are:
- what is that “ranchu kernel”? and how much it can be trusted?
- Can I virtualize LineageOS or any other well-known FLOSS Android? How?
