Because of many problems with our Android-engine, we have decided to re-develop the Gobudgie-Android core. Currently it’s based on Shashlik which is using QEMU. Now, we will use Anbox, which directly runs Android on the same kernel. This results much better performance and less of crashs. We hope that you’ll enjoy our next release.
Release time: Gobudgie rolling 18.02.08 snapshot has been released. The major fix is VirtualBox. Now you are able to test Gobudgie in a VM with an internet connection. Anyway, many other ethernet and some Broadcom WiFi cards are now working too. “live”‘s password is “live”. Please give us feedback!
Release time: We’ve released another snapshot of Gobudgie. The major changes are the support of some more drivers, updated legacy boot method and the iso build method. Now you can create a bootable usb using dd, because we use iso-hybrid-images.

We changed the APK runtime to Shashlik. Reason is the worse compatibility of ARC. We’ve tested Anbox too, but it is not very well working on older Hardware, so we decided to use Shashlik. Shashlik offers a graphical APK installer. You can see push-up Massages directly in the Gobuntu Desktop and Google Play services are Read more about Welcome Shashlik[…]
