Installing Android 4.3 Jellybean on Windows PC

Google recently announced the latest version of android 4.4 , Kitkat . While there’ is a lot of time left for android 4.4 to arrive . lets tinker around a bit with Android 4.3 in the meanwhile . Today Android is definitely the most popular and domination operating system on cell phones and tablets . but even then, the latest version of android 4.3 is only available on a bunch of high end android phones.


The only way you can enjoy android 4.3 on your phone is by rooting it and installing a custom android 4.3 ROM . But again Android 4.3 wont run on most low end android phones and even there are no custom Roms for low end android phones . But its not only phones that can run android . How about installing and using android 4.3 from your desktop computer ?

Yes android 4.3 can be installed and run on a windows computer running windows xp, windows vista, windows 7 or windows 8 , courtesy of Android-x86 , an unofficial initiative to port Google’s Android mobile operating system to run on devices powered by Intel and AMD x86 processors . I have installed the android 4.3 on my computer and its running with all its bells and whistles . Let me guide you through the process of installing android 4.3 on your windows computer . Before we start lets keep a list of things that we will be needing for installing android 4.3 on your computer.

What we need ?
  • Oracle Virtualbox
  • The latest Android 4.3 image from Android-X86 project.
Note: You might need to enable virtualization in your computers BIOS . You can enable it from your PC’s bios as shown on this screenshot.

Hi, you can install android x86 directly on the hdd under the grub menu. But hey it wont display the screen properly if you have a 16:9 monitor. According to my research it must be tweaked first [UVESA= "1366x768"] to a something (not sure) file or on grub loader. If you happen to have had this same issue about the display and somehow able to solve it, please DO make a tutorial, I'll appreciate it very much. android x86 can by the way be still useful to old computers (less powerful ones) and somehow this can still be used as a learning medium thru educational apps in google store (yes it can access gS), that way we can maximize use of old hardware and teach alot more without the pirating and of course, the expenses.
