TEST EVERYTHING YOU CAN, root hardly works here and no data is saved...

-steps for installation-
1) format your usb or hhd partion with minitool partion wizard to either ext3 (most root availible) or ntfs (for use with usb drive ?music?)

2) use lili usb creator to install the iso onto a 2g min usb
a) select the RIGHT usb drive lol
b) then select the iso that your going to use after tested for the best one
c) i personally only have format the usb selected but you can install the other crap but i dont lol
d) click the lighting bolt to start click the oks lol

3) turn your laptop insert the usb with the iso and the usb or external or even the internal if you want to do something crazy but you will format your windows or stock os! i use a external hdd as in my vid..

4) start your laptop enter your boot options (f12 for me) select the usb with the iso

5) select to install

You should probably mention that the android x86 builds are generally limited in their hardware support.

I am confused.

I'm trying to download LiLi. I click on the download link here but it takes me here. Clicking the "Download LinuxLive USB Creator" in the second link takes me back to the first.

Am I not clicking the correct link?
