There’s a question, that every now and then pops up in the community board: “How to run Android applications on Endless”. Now, there’s a good working Android Runtime available for Linux, namely “Anbox” which currently provides a Android 7.1.1 environment.
I spent a few hours building it for Endless OS, but run into the issue that two kernel modules are needed for it to work:
The first one is already shipped, the later one unfortunately not. So my question is, if there is interest in including (2) with EOS for making Anbox work with EOS in the future.
Personally, i’m a little ambivalent about Anbox on EOS in general: On the first side, it will open up the OS to a whole new level of available Software. On the other hand, it may increase the volume on Questions about not working Software on the Boards, as not every Android app is designed to work outside of a Phone/Tablet.
