Description:
Emulates Pentium PC for Android. It can run x86 OS.
It was compiled from stable relese 2.5 (11/27/11) with modifications for Android and my own implementation of sound output via SDL. It uses SDL(from mamaich).
It is slower than QEMU, but is rather stable so is preferable in case low requirements for HW.

Requirements: Android 2.2+.

How to install:
1. Install apk (attached)
2. Extract content of SDL.zip to /sdcard/SDL folder on your phone
3. Put hdd image to /sdcard/SDL folder and rename it to c.img (or modify bochsrc.txt)

Possible issues: The programm exits right after start and there is no bochsout.txt in /sdcard/SDL - check bochsrc.txt for errors:
-wrong path to images (check cAsE)
-bad symbols were added to file
If you have bochsout.txt after start, then it should contain description for the issue. In most cases it is unsupported format of disk image

Control:
- It emulate touchpad on touchscreen and left/right mouse buttons on volume
You can also click touch screen to generate mouse left button click.
- Back = BackSpace, Menu = Enter, left-upper corner click generates TAB
- left-lower corner click popups keyboard

Additional features:
- (warning it is experimental so can damage you file system) direct access to NAND of your phone
modify bochsrc.txt the next way
ata0-slave: type=disk, mode=vvfat, path=/sdcard/HDD, journal=vvfat.redolog
where HDD - folder in /sdcard root

- Sound support via SDL
modify bochsrc.txt:
sb16: wavemode=1, dmatimer=500000
OS should have installed SB16 drivers

example of bochsrc.txt is attached

Talking Windows XP SP3 Fundamentals
Dear geeks,
Finally, Windows XP SP3 Fundamentals is running under Android Bochs. It is very very stable. Works great with mouse and Windows XP On-screen Keyboard. The only problem on 500 Mhz processor in HTC - takes 1,5 hours to start. And very slow. Fast mobile required.

Red face how to prepare img file
Not difficult actually. You need to use Bochs Disk Image Creation Tool. For XP SP3 at least 1500 Mb must be allocated. You need to install Fundamentals on real PC (otherwise you wount type ctrl+alt+del on first logon, and wount change display resolution to 640p), then transfer image file to android.

The compressed image is 1.1 Gb. It includes bootable Windows XP Fundamendals Service Pack 3. I will attache also src text file with pc configuration. It is compatible for both PC and Android. Windows boots full color display 640*460 interlace drop till 320*240, 80 Mb RAM allocated, so it is still 40-50 avaliable for common Android applications. XP recognizes Pentium 4 processor operating at 7 Mhz. The forum limitations doesnt allow attaching that big files. If someone can give me an ftp or whatever like that and publish a link for everyone, i can provide files.

Puppy or damn small linux could be worth a shot. They dont require much.
