    Saw this in my Feedafever read, and figured I'd post it up for those of you that need to emulate Android~

    I'll add this (maybe u change titel*cough*) http://www.buildroid.org/blog/ u just need virtualbox and run it that's all there are also some virtual machines with google-play support so u can easily purchase all kairosoft games or other stuff u want.

    Will probably do a more in-depth post about emulation later on, just wanted to share this portable project.

    If it's dedicated perhaps it can drain less resources than virtualbox? That's a good thing I guess. There's bluestacks too but doesn't have google play and it's in beta stage, which will one day, perhaps, be paid software.

    I would appreciate such an emulator for iOS :(
    But I know there is none, is it?

    Not as far as I'm aware due to how locked down the system is, and how it'll be an uphill legal battle over an erupting volcano once Apple got wind of it.

    There is a project to make OS X binaries bootable on Linux, but I'm not sure if that'll go anywhere for the same reasons.

    Downloading this to try it out now. :3

    Buh. What? 3 hours for 176 MB download? And then network error. I guess I'll try an older version over this Lite one. >_>

    Edit: Oops. Don't have acceleration crap. Back to that other method. Sigh.
