Android-x86 4.0 RC1 Released (Android Ice Cream Sandwich Optimized For Netbooks

[ Thanks to An Anonymous Reader for
this link. ]

“In my test Android x86 4.0 worked great on my Asus EeePC: the
camera, Wifi and so on are supported out of the box. The only issue
I’ve had was related to suspend/sleep: I was unable to unlock the
screen, but at least in my case, there was a fix (see under tips
below). Also, applications compiled for ARM like Chrome, Firefox or
Netflix and others don’t work (they don’t even show up in the
Market) unless you recompile them.

“If you don’t have a netbook or laptop to test it and you want
to give it a try in VirtualBox, unfortunately the ethernet won’t
work for now. You can, of course, test it in VirtualBox without an
Internet connection – simply download the EeePC version, create a
new VirtualBox machine and run it.”
