Android on Oracle VM VirtualBox?

Postby innuendo » Thu Jul 07, 2011 11:03 am

Since my Android emulator is extremely slow (actually, it doesn't even start) and is just not appropriate to work with, I've setup Android on Oracle VM VirtualBox. I've read somewhere that it's possible to connect this virtual device to Android SDK Manager via adb, so you can see it on the Virtual devices list and run it directly from for example Eclipse.

First of all, is this correct?

I'm slowly loosing my mind. I'm now two days into this and it's just extremely frustrating (been Googling for two days but can't find a single clean answer on this).

So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I know the emulator is slow, but the performance is OK for the handset versions of android.
