How to Run ANDROID 3.0 OS on PC, Laptop,,


The folks at How-to-geek have managed to run Android OS on PC! Would you also like to try out the Google’s Android OS on your netbook or desktop? Here’s how you can run Android from a flash drive!
1. Download Android from here or Download Android 3.0 Honey Comb Download .

the Android SDK (either ZIP or EXE) on Windows PC. You can choose to download for Mac or Linux as well. If you are already having the previous SDK installed on your computer and skip this step.
- Installation of packages – Whether you have just downloaded SDK or have the previous one, now you need to install the available packages which includes Android 3.0 API and other updates related to that and other versions. To do that, go into the “Tools” folder in the downloaded SDK Unzipped folder and click on “android” application. A window will open where you need to select the option “Installed Packages” from the left menu.

- Click on “Update All” button available at the bottom of the window. The new packages including Android 3.0 updates will start to download. It may take time (few hours depending on your Internet connection speed) to complete the download and installation.
- Once the new packages are installed, its time to create a new AVD. To do that, go to the “Virtual Devices” option from the left menu on same screen and click on “New” button.
- It will ask for the name of the AVD and Android version that will want on that. Select the Android version as “Android 3.0 API Level 11” and give SD Card size as 10,000 MB.
- Once the AVD is created, select that AVD name from the list available under “Virtual Devices” and click on “Start” button to start the Android 3.0 stimulator
Done. In next few minutes, you will have Android 3.0 Honeycomb running on your computer. You can explore the features, options and new UI on your computer without purchasing any Android 3.0 tablet. Of course tablet with Honeycomb will be a very different experience because of the touch screen and other UI changes done by companies but this vanilla installation of Honeycomb is also very good.
Here are few snaps that I took while running Android 3.0 Honeycomb on my Windows 7 computer.

  6. Radio, I will look into those things for you. When you say search for text, do you mean a text string in quotes? Also, the GPS comment was about indoor use, it works fine outdoors. And, for syncing, you have total freedom in that regard since we're talking about music not controlled by DRM. So I have the same songs on an Android phone as I do on the Xoom.

    I love my large crock pot, but with two sons gone to school it has
    been an adjustment! So I bought a smaller 1 for the downsized family, with considerably better
    results. Also, if a month in a time appears crazy, try carrying out meals a week at a time.
    A single evening or afternoon of prep, and the whole week is
    easier, and far more time efficient!
