New Android-x86 4.2 Test Build (Based On Android 4.2.2) Available For Download

Android-x86 is a project that provides Android with x86 support so it can be used on netbooks, laptops and various tablets.Today, a new Android-x86 4.2 (based on the latest Android 4.2.2) test build has been released and it includes:Linux Kernel 3.8.0;OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon and Intel chipsets;Multi-touch, Wifi, Audio, G-sensor, Camera and Backlight control support;Simulate SDCard by internal storage;Auto mount USB drives and sdcards;Multi-user support with a maximum of 8 users;Ethernet support (DHCP only) so you don’t have to use WiFi to get Internet access, useful for testing Android-x86 in VirtualBox, etc.;VirtualBox support.Unfortunately, the latest Android-x86 4.2 doesn’t come with ARM translator support which means that you can’t use many applications and games available in the Google Play Store. If you want ARM translator support, you’ll either have to build Android-x86 from source or use an older version (4.0 RC2 – which is more stable by the way!).Starting with version 4.2, the Android-x86 developers have created an universal image instead of building separate images for various devices. This is in early development stages so you’ll probably encounter bugs – if you do, report them at the Android-x86 forum.Here are a few Android-x86 4.2 (20130228) screenshots:Android-x86 4.2 (20130228
