Looks sweet. Been waiting for dualboot support for Android on the pro.
How is performance in 3D applications?

Unless you happen to have one of the few machines which are properly supported by Intel's IA effort, it's a crapshoot.

Hello.
I am usually not the one to complain, but when I decide to do it, I go all the way until I become a thorn.
It is APRIL of 2015, over 120 days after what we were promised the rewards, and you still have not delivered android on the
Dell Venue 8 pro. All the files you made available for download were pretty bad explained in terms of installation, and none
so far would work with the tablet that made me decide to help fund the project. More and more sound to me that this project was
thrown away and now with some cash in hands, you are going towards something else. I honestly don't care the direction you are going,
but if you promised something, you gotta deliver, or return the investment.

We were pitched:
"This isnít an emulator and this isnít homebrew. Console OS is real, native Android that can really toggle with Windows on your PC."
"Console OS is painless to install - for end-users and system builders alike.
This is what makes Console OS so great. You can either install it on your PC's internal drive, or run it entirely from a USB external
hard disk.
Weíre not talking a demo (or "live") version either; all your apps, documents, even encryption can work booting directly from a
USB hard disk."
Where is it? So far I haven't seen or experienced any of that. I truly would like to know and EXPERIENCE IT/USE IT or have the investment back. The pitch and delivery time were very clear. It's been way past that and I think it is time to have it delivered. Please let me know. Thank you.

This would be probably the last time I will post something here since $10 loss would not worth too much speaking to @mmv,
no matter if it is really a legitimate company with "editor-s" or just one person role playing. I am sick and tired of waiting,
I bet so many of you feels the same. More than one year you haven't deliver, in the last post you say it's people get hot under the
collar, no, it is because you failed us and you refuse to acknowledge so. Even more insulting to our voters, is the fact you put all
the fault to us. "...we are doing what people voted for us to do...." is simply because you provided that option, by providing that
you implies you are capable. It turns out you are not. Further, you are not forth-coming about the fact that you may never will. Even
if one day you might achieve your goal (for discussion's sake let's assume you are really working on it), all the devices may be too
old for people to care about. And let's not forget Microsoft has opened the door to port Android apps. So, last but not least,
@mmv failure is not the end of the world, but it's shameful to hype others' expectation then not even have the guts to acknowledge
an obvious failure. $10 is small, but our expectation for a whole year is not.

Thanks.

I know this is a very old post, but people still quote from it, //link from it, so I followed the link to here. It's open so I am replying, did you ever get it to work? People still to this day claim Droid won't run on an intel chip, etc, etc, etc, but I have two dell venue 8's, both were pro(win) and instead of buying a Droid Venue 8, I merely took the factory image for the Venue 8, loaded it etc, config'd it and it's a droid device to this day.

There are a few differences between the two devices dell sells, etc, but both will run pretty much anything. I have owned Droid devices(Asus) that had same specs as my win devices, and they were fones running droid.

I don't understand the continued idea that anything that's shipped with windows//intel specs will not run Droid, when for quite a while now, intel's been the cpu/gpu mechanicals operating and being operated by Droid...!!!

SO, if you see this post, let me know how you ever made out...

The process is then not smooth and gameplay (for serious graphic intensive android games) are choppy or lagging at best. You get the feeling that it is all being emulated and not virtualized in the true sense.

I'm convinced you would have better success running Linux natively then finding a method of running Android apps as opposed to running Android on the device.


Android requires an ARM SoC processor. The Venue 8 Pro uses a full X86/64-bit processor. Therefore Android would need to be re-compiled. This isn't worth the effort in my opinion.

There is a n x86 Android kernel and x86 means 32 bit not 64, which would be x64. I know, wierd. I agree running Android apps on Linux would be smoother, but still, it's not the full Android experience. Sorry I had to correct you, I don't want people to get it wrong.
It is very likely that dual booting the Dell Venue is possible but it would probably take a lot of bricked tablets. As for dual booting Android, someone would have to make an Android kernel compatible with the tablet. I'm running a custom kernel on my Kindle Fire HD and it is so buggy. I'm not sure I would recommend dual booting the Dell Venue 8 because there isn't much storage unless you managed to boot off the micro SD which would be slower.

Hello, developers!
yeah, i made it. my current configuration is dual-booting windows embedded 8.1 ind-ent (hd0,gpt4) and android (hd0,gpt5)
i need to manually enter following commands in grub cli to load android:
insmod ext2
set root=(hd0,gpt5)
linuxefi /kernel
initrdefi /initrd.img
boot
I can't force grubefi to find it's configuration file. already tried to copy in /efi/boot , /efi/boot/grub , /boot/grub and such others on the same drive which grubia32.efi is located. any workaround? P.S. my (hd0,0) ESP partition is read-only as it's locked by vendor.
