The Android-v4.7z file (www.vmlite.com/vmlite/Android-v4.7z) has been updated, with these two new features:

(1) mouse integration with host, no more mouse trapping

(2) shared folders

(3) auto mount sdcard

/////////// readme file ////////

VMLite Android 4.0.1 ICS virtual machine instructions

Copyright 2011 VMLite Corporation

1. Setup the virtual machine

(1) Using Winrar or 7zip to extract the zip file to a folder.

(2) Start VMLite Workstation 4.2 beta or VirtualBox v4, then go to menu Machine > Add, select Android-v4.vbox file to add the vm, you should be able to then
start the virtual machine.

(3) if (2) is not working for you, you can create a new virtual machine using Machine > New VM... menu, choose Linux 2.6 as guest os, add the two vdi files using
IDE controller to the vm. Android-4.vdi as Master, and sdcard.vdi as slave.

2. Using the virtual machine

(1) Drag the lock using the mouse to enter the Android screen.

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

open a command prompt, and enter these commands: (adb.exe is included in the zip file)

adb connect localhost
adb shell
mount -t vfat /dev/block/sdb /mnt/sdcard

after the above, you should be able to use the sd card, which has 8G size.

If you can't connect using adb, and you are using NAT as network adapter, you need to run the following command:

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

If you are using bridged network adpater, you need to use the ip address of your vm to connect, e.g.

adb connect 192.168.1.10

If you have problems connecting to the vm, execute the following commands:

adb kill-server
adb shell

(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
the share.

adb kill-server
adb shell
mkdir /mnt/sdcard/c_drive
mount.vboxsf c_drive /mnt/sdcard/c_drive
ls /mnt/sdcard/c_drive

assume you have added a shared folder to the vm named as c_drive. You can ignore the error message from mount.vboxsf.

@huisinro: Thx for the new build - just have downloaded it this morning.
Here are my findings after a short test:

- adding the .vbox file to Virtualbox worked flawless
- booting the VM works flawless
- mouse integration is perfect (no more right control key) thumbs up!
- I haven't tested shared folder yet.

- connecting to VM via adb (adb connect localhost) -> works (after I defined the port forwarding, as discussed here).

But: space on internal data store is low - 45 MB managed, 3,9 MB free.


Unable to install any .apk file, because I get the following message.



My attempt to install on SD card resulted in a "Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_MEDIA_UNAVAILABLE]

Need to revert to previous build, to install apps.

doing a new build now, will be available in a couple of hours. The new one has same disk layout as the old version, so should work with apps.
