Written by

Project port of Android open source project to x86 platform, formerly known as “patch hosting for android x86 support“. The original plan is to host different patches for android x86 support from open source community.

A few months after the created the project, we found out that we could do much more than just hosting patches. The developers decided to fork the code base that will provide android x86 support on different x86 platforms, and set up a server to host it.
