TODAY I'M SHOWING YOU HOW TO RUN WINDOWS 95 ON YOUR LITTLE ANDROID PHONE



What does we need?:
  • A mobile phone running Android
  • Limbo(Application based on Qemu - Now the app has been removed from Play Store but you can find here: Aptoide SourceForge or search for APK [6MB - 0.9.7 Shoud be the last version])
  • A copy of Windows 95 HDD Image: download link removed from here: 4SHARED or MEGA [56.4MB - a copy of an HDD]
Here is the guide:
  1. Install Limbo APK
  2. Extract the .zip that you downloaded of windows 95 on your SDCARD
  3. Open Limbo
  4. Set up this settings
    Code:
    Load VM: NEW
    User Interface: SDL
    CPU Model: Default x86
    CPU Cores:1(over phone has got only 1 core XD)
    Ram Memory: 150MB
    HardDisk A: select the file of hdd (downloaded before) from your sdcard where you extract it(should be an .img file)
    High Priority: YES
  5. Press start button
  6. After 3/4 minutes windows 95 will start, ENJOY


Notice:
  • Everything seems work fine
  • This is like a virtual machine nothing should be delete on your phone
  • However NEVER SAY NEVER use it at your RISK
  • You can boot up also other OS but considering the slow hardware...

A little update: Limbo project seems dead, more info on official page https://github.com/vynncentgm/limbo-android and https://code.google.com/p/limbo-android/issues/list

it should work but SLOWER ;(

l3 has got android 2.3.6, limbo work on 2.2 too
but l3 has got less ram and less display it can become difficult to use it, but you can run it!

said me about your test with windows 95
