yep ... it is setup as an Android-x86 VM ...

Not supported yet,... But it should handle a web orbiter fine... I PM'd Golgoj4 about it a little while back, and he said he look into x86 based Android as a target,... but I told him there was no rush, at the moment.

PS: Old netbooks, especially smaller ones that are sitting unused, make great Android-X86 devices...

Hey ...
first of all thx, for offering advanced information :-)

Currently i have only a iPad and a iPhone 3GS to test. :-(

So my plan was to use any emulator to get QOrbiter working. But the adnroid emu does a bad job on OS X.
It slows down the whole mac to an almost unusable speed, i don't want to talk about the speed of the android emu. I can slide to unlock but thats it.

If you know how to run an android emu on Mac OS please let me know !

cheers,
ochorocho

Don't know about Mac stuff, sorry.

But is possible to emulate ARM on Android-X86,... At least experimentally...

See here:
http://www.buildroid.org/blog/?p=198

Note: I have not tried to duplicate this guy's work, nor was I actually planning to do so. This is advanced kernel rebuilding stuff, not my idea of a free evening's tinkering...

PS: It's apparently possible to use VirtualBox and qemu to emulate ARM in order to build/develop for ARM based Android as well.

hey ....

my android emulator is up and running with a good performance. :-)
i seems like i did NOT download the macOS version of the Emulator!

MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOADED THE CORRECT VERSION!! :-)


i've installed Ministro II and QOrbiter app (from here: http://www.lasmarthomes.com/QOrbiter-release.apk ).

on the first run of qorbiter it asks for additional libs to be installed, so i installed the additional libs.
After installing the additional qorbiter goes black and thats it.

I tried with Android 2.3.3, 3.0.1, 4.0.1 .

Any information to get around this issue or debug it is greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

Cheers,
ochorocho

Hey golgoj4,

Thought i'd try out the nightly. Followed the wiki (orb, user, room, size, svn, skins, config generation etc) however after loading briefly - the app just quits (goes back to the homescreen). Using a galaxy S2 (ICS 4.0.4). Logcat shows this if it is helpful:

Umm - nevermind! I noticed that the device id flashes up as -1, though you don't get a chance to change it...

So I manually edited the config.xml on the SD card and it works! Yay! Time to play - thanks again :)

interesting, so you just changed the device id to an existing one and it worked?

its supposed to show a popup of the existing qOrbiters.

Just wondering if anyone has got this working on a HP Touchpad w/ android (CM9)?
I have just got my touchpad back, and have been trying to get it to work but to no avail :/
Trying to get debug logs out of it now..

Just an update in the hopes someone may be able to help me.
I have been trying to figure out why qOrbiter would work when it is freshly installed (config changed to suit my setup). But fail every time after...

These are my logs;

Success start : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=ss2t5bhQ

When pressing Exit Orbiter : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=JDp1idZd

Failed start : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=4TAvQUBs

I will keep plodding away and report here if I am successful :P

Cheers

I'm having trouble with my touchpad as well- qorbiter is grabbing device id "45" even through only have qorbiter devices "56" and "75".  I don't have a device 45 or anything really even close.  On one occasion, I was able to halt the qorbiter starting and was able to type in "56" as my device id.  I hitting "go" changed the button color to green, but then the app froze.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I dont. What should be happening is that device id is set to -1 by default. this should cause it to pop up a list of existing qOrbiter, you select the right one and it starts. it saves the device id so next time it will already have it. Anything else happening is outside of what happens on the android devices i  test. Is there anyways to get a more solid rom onto these touchpads, because its clearly borking up a lot. It should not be setting random device numbers. that means that it cant read from the SD card more than likely, which means you will have to fight with it every time.

Exactly like that. I didn't get a pop-up that i could see. I could see the -1 but not edit it.. and it would only give me a few sec before crashing. xml edit worked immediately though.
