Issues with WindowsAndroid encountered so far - post will be updated.
  • Play store - All apps incompatible, shows few apps
  • Voice search doesn't work
  • Developer options makes crash
  • Impossible to change layout and screen size
  • No Security settings
  • No unlock to camera (at least not with no webcam)

I can replicate all of those problems on my intel machine. I would also add that it requires a fairly large resolution to run in tablet mode, and there are no home row buttons available in the phone mode.

Looking forward to seeing this work, god knows I have spent enough money in the play store, now that I don't have a android device as a main device, it would be nice to get my moneys worth.

Are you running it as an administrator? If so try removing the program from Add or Remove programs. Then going to your C: drive and delete the file SocketeQ. Re install the program, once it is installed open WindowsAndroid first. Then close it and install the Gapps after running it one time. See if that helps anything.

It still doesn't work. the command prompt shows up and closes after a window with an all white background appears and closes.

CMD message:

Not down, but disabled. The server still works, and the introduction document is still there:

http://www.socketeq.com/web_documents/WindowsAndroid.pdf

So's the Chinese version:

http://www.socketeq.com/web_documents/windowsandroid-cn-v1.pdf

As was, it was utterly useless anyway. Hopefully they'll be back with a version that's actually usable.

And it's back, with a brand new name. (Anybody want to place bets on them having gotten a cease-and-desist from Microsoft, Google, or both?)

It's now called Windroy, and is once again available here:

Just wanted to report that I rund AMD and have no issues so far. Only issue is incompatability with the apps in the market. Even after editing build props to a model that should work

Same display as kdhupar0. Some apps I can get out of pressing the ESC button but only works on some. I get error 491 when trying to download from the market. Runns alot smoother then expected. Very buggy but looks like a great start.
her then expected. Very buggy but looks like a great start.

Well, on phone mode, as it loads originally, I don't have the buttons, changing the lcd density makes it better but then I dont have the app drawer button!

Any suggestions? Im running 1366x768

This would be the best if it wasn't so buggy. Can't get 1mobile working at all, just crashes.

FWIW there is a typo in init.rc

setprop ro.product.devcie windroid

Probably doesn't really matter at this stage though.

(And also 2 iPhone JPG's in /mnt/sdcard folder.)

Was able to run Quadrant, but only without CPU and 3D testing, so you can't see the full score as yet. Still very damn quick.

    Download the program from: WindowsAndroid

    Run as administrator and install the program.

    Install Gapps:

    1. Download gapps for ICS HERE.
    2. Unzip the gapps.
    3. Find the system folder that was unzipped, then go into the apps folder. Copy all of the apks
    4. Go to C:\SocketeQ\windowsandroid_root\system\apps
    5. Paste all of the apks in that directory.
    6. Restart Windowsandroid
    7. Enjoy gapps.

    Note: You will now be able to add a Google account and get into Google Play but there is not really anything in the Play Store at this time.

    Note #2: There have been reports that, this may not work on AMD processors. Intel seem to work just fine.

    Has anyone found out how to switch to Full-Screen or change resolution yet?

    Did you try what I suggested on my previous post.

    I tried on the school laptop (intel processor) and it worked great. Still not working on desktop (AMD) though.

    This will work with build.prop modifications. Its already posted on their website.
