First, a little bit about this project...
Starting in Android Pie, Bliss OS will be taking a different approach to building Android for PC's. Taking inspiration from @phhusson 's Treble methods, and Intel's Project Celadon, we have reworked a good majority of the commits from Android-x86 Project and Bliss OS's Oreo release, and packaged it up so that it can work a bit more dynamically. The result was something we could integrate into a single source, along side normal device builds. This is much like our Treble builds that use PHH's Treble methods, and Intel's Project Celadon's EFI builds. Both of which are also buildable directly from the BlissRoms-x86 source: https://github.com/BlissRoms-x86/manifest
These Bliss OS releases will be considered the Bleeding Edge of development for Android on x86, and we will be marking most of our additions to be sent down the ladder to our Android-PC project & hopefully Android-x86 Project as well. For now though, you can stay tuned to this thread for updates on all that.
ROM Porting Details:
Like we mentioned already, things this round will be done a bit differently using the patching system to build for x86 devices, making updating and maintaining far easier than before, and even lowers the bar for understanding how it all works. But things were still complicated enough for us to see room for improvement. So we have also packaged up all the x86 bits we add to Bliss OS, minus a few goodies and are making them available to the entire community to add to their ROM projects. You can find the basics on GitHub already, https://github.com/Android-PC and for those interested in adding x86 support to your own ROM, I was able to squash things down to a single commit in build/make in order to help get the ball rolling. This will also be the source we are helping out Android-x86 Project with, so don't be surprised if things change a bit to reflect that projects branding more.
I'm always open to suggestions on how we can improve upon things too, so don't be afraid to speak up, just remember to be considerate upon doing so
We will be updating our website also over the next few weeks to feature a new downloads section, as well as further information about using our source for commercial projects.
