I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this or even if anyone would be interested in this, but I spent some time yesterday working with the Ice Cream Sandwich source and was able to get Android compiled for VirtualBox. This is virgin AOSP using the included 'vbox-x86' make target, so there were no changes made to the source. I thought some people may just want to see ICS and tinker rather than go through some of the hoops so I decided to release the VM.

PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL NOT GIVE ANY SUPPORT FOR THIS.

At the link below are some screenshots of it running in VirtualBox as well as the link to download.

UPDATE... Since I'm a newb (never posted but been here for a while), I can't post the link. But, here are some screenshots. Perhaps I can get external links approved from the moderators?

Peace.

Ok, let's try this... Remove the spaces.

doubleu doubleu doubleu . gregorystrike . com/2011/11/16/my-first-compile-of-android-v4-0-1-ics-running-in-virtual-box/

Also, since I haven't figured out mouse support yet the lock screen PIN is set to '1111' so it can be unlocked.

Try changing the NIC to one of the NAT (vs Bridged).

Got it working as well. Can't seem to get the internet to work on it though despite trying different settings under Network Options within vbox. Everytime I try to access the widgets, the launcher crashes unfortunately. Very cool to actually play around with it a bit though!
