    AndroVM, provides the best Android virtual environment out there and runs Android 4.1.2
    So let’s start installing it
    This guide will help you installing AndroVM (here is original)

    Note:-

    • All Credits goes to Daniel and his team members
    • This tutorial is based on Windows
    • I used tp version on it i.e. Tablet with Phone capabilities version
    • Know how to use your PC. I do NOT teach PC 101. Don’t ask for clarification of this process – it is dirt simple if you are competent (- attn1).
    • AndroVM Google group
    • AndroVM is Open-source project
    • Specs of the system used. (Full details in Signature)

    Intel Core i7 3610QM
    nVidia GT 650M 2 GB DDR3
    8 GB RAM


    You’ll need the following: -




    Assuming you got Virtual box installed and is functional, Follow the guide





    Import the Appliance by either hitting “CTRL+I” or by going to File>Import Appliance





    Browse for the “.ova” file you just downloaded and proceed





    Configure the cores and RAM you want to dedicate to VM





    And proceed to next i.e. Import it





    It’ll take few seconds to complete





    After completion of the Importing process, just get in the VM settings > Network and under Adapter 1 tab add “Host-Only Adapter” (from drop-down menu)
    And Start VM





    You’ll be treated by this Welcome screen. Just configure it and follow on-screen instruction








    Get in App drawer and open on “AndroVM Configuration” app.

    Time to launch AndroVM Player and enjoy smoothness of Jelly Bean: D
    Run the app, Select resolution and hit run.[FONT=comic sans ms]

    And you are good to go!

    Just in case Player fails to connect VM, Use these default settings
