NEWS 151010: Build 150916 has been replaced by Build 151010, which is totally error-free and has some extra features.
Comparison with my previous Build from 150916
News in Build 151010: Most important is that Build 151010 can run and be installed in VirtualBox and VMware. Also that OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for Intel/AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveau) chipsets is enabled. I’ve also added the Twitter and Viber apps. Very useful apps (I think).

My new build of Android-x86 Lollipop 5.1.1 has GAPPS pre-installed. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Maps, YouTube and more apps. For example: Twitter, Viber, Facebook and OfficeSuite 8. The ISO is called android-x86-5.1.1-lollipop-kernel-4.0.8-exton-GAPPS-588mb-151010.iso. AndEX 151010 is totally error-free. For installing new apps you shall always use Google Play Store in AndEX Build 151010. Only use Aptoide App Manager (which is also pre-installed) if you can’t find the app you are searching for in Google Play Store.
My compiled Android–x86 system (Lollipop 5.1.1) can run live (from CD or a USB stick) or be installed on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Asus laptops. The Android system is distributed in the form of an ISO file as the rest of my Linux distributions. I.e. you must (as usual) burn the ISO file to a CD if you want to run the system live on your computer or install it to hard drive. Read about how to burn ISO files. Or skip that. Just use ImgBurn. Nothing can go wrong.
What’s the point?
Well, if you like your Android phone and all the apps you have installed on it I’m sure you will also like to run apps from your laptop. Bigger screen and better sound etc. Also: In AndEX version 151010 almost all apps and games can be installed via Google Play Store. Still not convinced?
