(2) sdcard is now automatically mounted, if for some reason that it does not work well, you can do it manually as follows:

adb connect localhost
mount -t vfat /dev/block/sdb /mnt/sdcard
after the above, you should be able to use the sd card, which has 8G size.

VBoxManage modifyvm Android-v4 --natpf1 adb,tcp,*,5555,*,5555

(3) Use shared folders to copy files between vm and host. This build includes shared folders additions, you can use the following commands to mount
