Android-x86 on EEEPC 701

Finally got some fancy thing to update. I have the android running on my netbook!

I am amazed how easy the installation is. I followed the instructures precisely. No suprising thing happend during the procedures.

Thanks to the team  They have done a great job.

On android:

  • Settings -> Unknown sources.   Allow the android to install non-market applications
  •  Settings->Wireless controls->Wi-Fi settings.  Click  the Wi-Fi network (below the Text Label Wi-Fi networks) you connected to check the ip address of your android device.

On you host: 

  • set ADBHOST=<android-x86 ip address>
  • adb kill-server
  • adb install <your apk file name>

Enjoy the Android! Thanks to the team android-x86 again.

Cannot access to

This time it's the google picasa. Looks like it was since June 24th.  What's it for? 

The DNS returns a error IP address for the google picasa. Fuck GFW! 

It has been told add below IP addresses in  the hosts file can solve this problem.

Unfortunately, it does not work for me. I even can not access to that ip address via ping. 

BTW. I found for some people the GFW really does not effect too much to their life. They even can not sense it existing. Those people only play QQ web games.
