    Hi all,

    does anyone knows about a MIUI for PC, like Android x86
    http://www.android-x86.org/
    ??

    Kernel for some devices has been prepared.

    I am not aware of any MIUI for PC development.

    I have a PC with Android x86. Do you think that with custom kernel already available Miui can be ported easily to that platform? I would like to try, but with some help would be nice too :)

    I don't know how the PC works in terms of loading Android at all. Does it resemble that of Android?

    I'm still understanding internals, but there is a Grub loader at boot, with initr.img and ramdisk.img etc... and a system folder with all app in apk format in a subfolder called app.

    More, as expected, system loads all that apks and provide them to user. Maybe they can be replaced in order to have MIUI apps... I'll try

    UPDATE: for normal applications is like installing them. Not tried yet with system apps

    miui should be compiled for x86 instructions like AOSP did, so no way.
