Running Android LiveCD on Vitual Machine

Android is a big hit among smartphones, phablets, tablet, and why in desktop or notebook? So here, I'm gonna show you how to run the livecd of Android OS:

1. Download Android OS from:

http://code.google.com/p/live-android/downloads/list

2. Two files need to be downloaded. One which file extension is .001 and the other one is .002; I downloaded the following:

liveandroidv0.3.iso.001
liveandroidv0.3.iso.002

3. Since these files are splitted, you need to join them. Download HJ-Split from www.hjsplit.org. Extract and run hjsplit.exe. Click 'Join' button and a new window will open; to join a set files (.001 and 002), first open the .001 file using the 'Input File' buttons. Other files (.002, .003, etc.) which are in the directory will be found automatically. Then click Start button and wait few minutes until finished. This should produce file something like liveandroidv0.3.iso


* If you are running GNU/Linux OS, you can simply run the following command on terminal, assuming files are on the same directory:

$ cat liveandroidv0.3.iso.001 liveandroidv0.3.iso.002 > liveandroidv0.3.iso
4. Fire up your hypervisor (VirtualBox, VMWare, etc.) and create virtual machine for Android. The following appears (choose either of the two):

 It will show the following after choosing one of the two above:



 And finally, you have it:
