Exton|OS 64 bit – based on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS – with KDE Plasma, Android Studio with an excellent Android Emulator, Refracta Snapshot, Nvidia Graphics Driver and kernel 5.9.0-rc2-exton – Build 200901

NEWS 200901 ABOUT Exton|OS with KDE Plasma Desktop, Android Studio and Refracta Snapshot
The Desktop Environment in this Exton|OS build is KDE Plasma 5.18. Plasma is made to stay out of the way as it helps you get things done. But under its light and intuitive surface, it’s a powerhouse. So you’re free to choose ways of usage right as you need them and when you need them. Program content in build 200901: Most important are Refracta Snapshot and Android Studio with an excellent Android Emulator. You can run several Android systems directly in Exton|OS. Also with GAPPS (Google Play Services and Google Play Store) pre-installed. Watch a screenshot when Android 11 is running with Google Play Store enabled. Other pre-installed programs are Firefox, Gimp and GParted. Also all necessary additions in order to install programs from source. Kernel 5.9.0-rc2-exton (corresponding Kernel.org‘s second latest kernel 5.9-rc2) is used. All packages have been updated to the latest available version as at September 1, 2020. Study the NEW PACKAGE list. Google Chrome has been removed since it’s now possible to use Netflix in Firefox. Using Refracta Snapshot you can change everything to your liking and create your own live installable Ubuntu system with Android Studio included. I mean create your own installable Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS Live DVD once you have installed Exton|OS to hard drive. Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS will be supported until April 25, 2025.

IMPORTANT NOTE: You can’t run Android Studio’s Emulator live. (I.e. while running Exton|OS from a DVD or USB stick.) You can also not run the emulator in VirtualBox and VMware. You’ll have to install Exton|OS to hard drive before you can use the Android emulator.

MOST IMPORTANT CHANGES IN BUILD 200901
1. This Exton|OS version is for UEFI computers.
2. I have installed and configured Android Studio. It has the very best Android Emulator with support directly from Google (the creator of Android). You can also develop your own Android apps in Android Studio.
3. A brand new kernel – 5.9-rc2 – is used.

What’s new in kernel 5.9?

Nvidia Graphics Driver
I have preinstalled Nvidia Graphics Driver 450.66 with patches so it can be used with kernel 5.9. The driver will be used if your computer has support for it.

ExTiX 20.9 KDE Plasma together with Anbox (“Android in a Box”) :: Build 200825

ABOUT ExTiX 20.9 – Build 200825
I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 20.9 KDE Anbox Live DVD. (The previous KDE version was 20.2 from 200127). I have now included Anbox (Android in a Box – Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU/Linux system. Every Android application will be integrated with your operating system like any other native application). So now you can run Android apps in ExTiX. You can also very easy install GAPPS (Google Play Services and Google Play Store) yourself after a hard drive installation of ExTiX 20.9. The second best thing with ExTiX 20.9 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu/Anbox system. So easy that a ten year child can do it!

ExTiX 20.9 KDE Plasma DVD 64 bit is based on Debian and Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Gnome. After removing Gnome I have installed KDE Frameworks 5.68.0 with KDE 4.19. KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms.

The system language is ENGLISH.

NEWS ABOUT ExTiX 20.9 Build 200825 with the KDE Plasma Desktop environment together with Anbox (Android in a Box), Refracta Installer and Refracta Snapshot
1. ExTiX KDE Plasma is based on Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS Focal Fossa. KDE Plasma 5.104 is used as Desktop environment together with Anbox (Android in a Box). All packages have been updated to the latest version by 200825. Kernel 5.4.42-generic is used.
2. I have pre-installed Anbox (Android in a Box) with some useful apps. Among them Aptoide App Manager and F-Droid. You can very easy install GAPPS (Google Play Services and Google Play Store) yourself after a hard drive installation of ExTiX. Anbox won’t run live or in VirtualBox. You will get this error message. Unfortunately you can’t run videos in Anbox. Sound will work, but you can’t play any videos. (For example in YouTube).
3. Other included important/useful packages are: GParted GCC and other compilation tools so that you can install packages from source. Furthermore “all” multimedia codecs. Everything the average Linux user could wish for I would say.
4. The best thing with ExTiX 20.9 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system. Very easy to do. When starting Refracta Snapshot you will see this.

SCREENSHOTS

RaspAnd 10 (Android 10) for Raspberry Pi 4 – Build 200809 – with Firefox, Spotify, Aptoide App Manager and F-Droid

RaspAnd 10 for Raspberry Pi 4, Pi 3 B and Pi 3 B+ :: Build 200809 :: with Firefox, Spotify, Aptoide App Manager “Independent Android App Store”) and F-Droid – “Free and Open Source Android App Repository”

About Raspberry Pi 4
This build (RaspAnd 10 200809) works very well on the new Raspberry Pi 4. I used the latest model with 8GB RAM, but you can of course use the other models too.

ABOUT RaspAnd 10 – Build 200809
RaspAnd 10 runs very well on a Raspberry Pi 4, 3 Model B and 3 Model B+. I.e. the system is pretty responsive if you use a micro SD card of good quality. RaspAnd 10 has the following apps pre-installed: Firefox, Spotify, Aptoide App Manager, F-Droid, Aida64 and ES File Explorer. Unfortunately not Google Play Store, but Aptoide and F-Droid work as good replacements for it.

About different launchers
If you install Lucid Launcher via Aptoide App Manager you can change wallpaper to whatever you want. Watch a screenshot when Lucid Launcher is used…

Compatibility :: August 2020
Unfortunately not all systems made for Raspberry Pi 3 and 2 will run on the new Raspberry Pi 4 computer. They need to be upgraded with a new kernel. I therefore have to upgrade the systems I distribute. I.e. RaspEX, RaspEX with OpenCPN, exGENT, RaspEX BunsenLabs, RaspEX Kodi, RaspAnd Marshmallow, RaspAnd Nougat 7.1.2, RaspAnd Oreo 8.1, RaspAnd Pie, EXTON OpSuS Rpi, FedEX Rpi3 and RaspArch. I have until now (200809) only upgraded RaspAnd 10, RaspEX, RaspEX Kodi, RaspArch, exGENT and RaspEX with OpenCPN. Read about the new Raspberry Pi 4.

SCREENSHOTS
1. The Desktop with Clash of Clans and Angry Birds installed
2. Using Aptoide App Manager
3. Running Spotify
4. WiFi Settings – (WiFi works very well)
5. Aida64 running showing the system info
6. YouTube running in Firefox
7. Clash of Clans running (installed via Aptoide)
8. Angry Birds running (installed via Aptoide)

Run Android 10 on your PC :: AndEX 10 (Android-x86_64) with GAPPS (Google Play Store etc.), F-Droid, Brave Browser and Spotify :: Build 200604, 200225, 200218 and 200108

NEWS 200604 – A new version of AndEX 10 is ready!
I’ve uploaded a new upgraded version of AndEX 10 andex-10-x86_64-gapps-BIG-1080mb-200604.iso. All included apps have been updated to the latest version. Also Google Play Services and Google Play Store. The ISO file is of only 1080 MB! Makes it easier to run AndEX on computers with low RAM. I have replaced the Brave Browser with Mint Browser, which also is an excellent Web Browser in many ways. The very nice launcher 3D Live Launcher is used also in this AndEX version. Make it your standard Launcher. Version 200604 of AndEX 10 is a totally new build with a new kernel – 4.19.122-exton-android-x86_64. I’ve noticed that the WiFi connection works better with this new kernel. I.e. the connection is more stable. This build works very well also in VirtualBox and VMware. You can even use the very nice launcher 3D Live Launcher and also change wallpapers to your liking – screenshot.

Fourth Build of AndEX 10
This is my fourth build of AndEX 10. When downloading Build 200604 you will also get the other three previous versions. They are all somewhat special.

MORE ABOUT AndEX 10 Build 200604
My new compiled Android-x86_64 system (10) can run and be installed on almost all newer laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Asus laptops. You can also run AndEX 10 in VirtualBox and/or VMware. I can also mention that I could run my new 10 version on a HP Pavilion 500-317no Desktop Computer and on a Lenovo ThinkStation C30. You can very easy do a “normal” or manual installation to hard drive. A manual installation can also be done to a drive where you already have another Linux system (for example Ubuntu 20.04) installed.

Android 10 was released 190903.

Run Android Pie on your PC :: AndEX Pie (Android-x86_64) with GAPPS (Google Play Store etc.), Spotify, Clash of Clans, Angry Birds, Brave Browser and Root Explorer :: Build 200301

NEWS 200301 about AndEX Pie 9.0 with GAPPS
A new build of AndEX Pie is ready. It has GAPPS (Google Play Store etc), Aptoide App Manager, Clash of Clans, Angry Birds, Root Explorer, Brave Browser, Spotify and many other apps pre-installed. My new build of Android x86_64 – andex-pie-x86_64-gapps-1360mb-200301.iso can be installed to hard drive or on a USB stick. You can also run the system live. I.e. from a DVD or a USB stick. On some computers you’ll have to start up AndEX Pie in compatibility mode (VESA) though. The sound and video performance is generally very very good. Google Play Store works very well in this build of AndEX Pie. I’ve also included one extra app store – Aptoide App Manager. Use Aptoide if you can’t find the app you’re looking for using Google Play Store. The very nice launcher 3D Live Launcher is used also in this AndEX version. Make it your standard Launcher.

Why this new AndEX Pie Build?
My first AndEX Pie build is from September 12, 2019. It is still very good and valid. Mainly because the Netflix app can run in Build 190912. My new Build 200301 is rooted, which prevents Netflix from running. The Android Project released Android-x86 9.0-r1 200227 – The Android-x86 project is glad to announce the 9.0-r1 release to the public. This is the first stable release for Android-x86 9.0 (pie-x86). The 9.0-r1 release is based on the latest Android 9.0.0 Pie release (android-9.0.0_r53). The features include: support both 64-bit and 32-bit kernel and userspace with latest LTS kernel 4.19.105; support OpenGL ES 3.x hardware acceleration for Intel, AMD, NVIDIA and QEMU (virgl) by Mesa 19.3.4; support OpenGL ES 2.0 via SwiftShader for software rendering on unsupported GPU devices; support hardware accelerated codecs on devices with Intel HD and G45 graphics family; support secure booting from UEFI and installing to UEFI disk; a text-based GUI installer; add theme support to GRUB-EFI; support multi-touch, audio, WiFi, Bluetooth, sensors, camera and Ethernet (DHCP only); simulate WiFi adapter on devices with Ethernet only to increase app compatibility; auto-mount external USB drive and SD card. I tried Android Project’s ISO the same day (200227). To my surprise it didn’t run well (at least on my computers). The system wouldn’t run/start at all or the computer/system froze or crashed when I reached the Android Pie Desktop. I therefore decided to build my own new Android Pie system using the same sources as the Android Project. The result is AndEX Pie Build 200301. It works very well. I.e. no freezes or crashes. Note: The Android Project’s build from 200227 is also rooted. So even if you manage to start the system you can’t run the Netflix app.

Kernel
Kernel 4.19.105-exton is used in AndEX Pie Build 200301.

Clash of Clans (pre-installed) and Angry Birds (pre-installed) and other popular games
Clash of Clans (a very popular epic strategy game) and Angry Birds (both pre-installed) work very very well. Perfect video quality and audio. If you have a touchscreen you can also (for example) run Wild Hunt, Flight Pilot, CSR Racing 2, Bowmasters and Shooting King. Watch a screenshot of the desktop when I have installed the just mentioned game apps (in AndEX Nougat).

About YouTube

YouTube works very well when running YouTube in Brave Browser. The YouTube app is therefore not pre-installed. You can, however, install the app via Google Play Store (for example).

About Facebook
The Facebook app works very well in AndEX Pie. Just go get it via Google Play Store.

What’s the point?
Well, if you like your Android phone and all the apps you have installed on it I’m sure you will also like to run apps from your laptop. Bigger screen and better sound etc. Also: In AndEX Pie Build 200301 and 190912 many new apps and games can be installed via Google Play Store, Aurora Store or F-Droid. You can even install very big games (of 1GB or so), but unfortunately almost all such games need a touchscreen. Still not convinced? Then read my article about “How useful an Androx-x86 system can be for the average computer user“.

SCREENSHOTS
1. The AndEX Pie Desktop with 3D Live Launcher (pre-installed)
2. The standard AndEX Pie Desktop with 3D Live Launcher’s wallpaper. (You can of course change it)
3. Showing how to make a WiFi connection in VirtualBox
4. Using another launcher
5. Using yet another launcher. (Find the one you like on Google Play Store)

Run Android 10 “Mini version” on your PC :: AndEX 10 (Android-x86_64) with GAPPS (Google Play Store etc.), Mint Browser and Root Explorer :: Build 200225

NEWS 200225 – A new mini version of AndEX 10 is ready!
I’ve uploaded a new upgraded version of AndEX 10 – andex-10-x86_64-mini-gapps-892mb-200225.iso. All included apps have been updated to the latest version. Also Google Play Services and Google Play Store. The ISO file is of only 892 MB! Makes it easier to run AndEX on computers with low RAM. I have replaced the Brave Browser with Mint Browser, which also is an excellent Web Browser in many ways. The very nice launcher 3D Live Launcher is used also in this AndEX version. Make it your standard Launcher.

Upgrade from version 200108 to 200218 or to version 200225?
If you already have AndEX version 200108 or 200218 up and running there is no need to acquire the new version. Just upgrade all apps to the latest version of today and you’re done! Use Google Play Store for that. You can of course also install for example YouTube, Brave, the Spotify app and Google Play Games yourself (if you are running the AndEX 10 mini version of 200225).

Running AndEX 10 live from a USB stick
When running AndEX 10 from a USB stick you can’t normally install new apps or download anything. For example new wallpapers. That’s because you have no storage space. If you, however, use Rufus 3.8 when installing AndEX to the USB stick you can create a Persistent partition of 2GB on the stick. When running Rufus it will look like this.

When running AndEX 10 from the USB stick you can open up a File Manager. You will notice that you have a persistent space of 2GB – screenshot. You will now be able to install new apps and download things. Unfortunately nothing will be left if/when you reboot your computer.

I’ve uploaded a new upgraded version of AndEX 10 – andex-10-x86_64-gapps-fdroid-spotify-1180mb-200218.iso. I.e. all included apps have been updated to the latest version. Also Google Play Services and Google Play Store. The main reason for this new version is that I discovered that Google Chrome couldn’t run anymore. I have therefore replaced Google Chrome with Brave, which is an excellent Web Browser in many ways. At the same time I discovered a new very nice launcher – 3D Live Launcher. So it is of course included in AndEX Build 200218. Make it your standard Launcher. I’ve also added the app Google Play Games. Makes it easier to run games in AndEX.

Upgrade from version 200108 to 200218?
If you already have AndEX version 200108 up and running there is no need to acquire the new version. Just upgrade all apps to the latest version of today and you’re done! Use Google Play Store for that. You can of course also install Brave, the 3D Live Launcher and Google Play Games yourself.

AndEX 10 (Android-x86) runs very well on the Intel Compute Stick

AndEX 10 (Android-x86) Build 200108 with GAPPS (Google Play Store etc.) runs very well on the Intel Compute Stick. See how it looks (photo) when I use a 55 Inch TV.

History
This is what I wrote on December 3, 2016: I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.5 LXQt for the Intel Compute Stick. Build 161203 is only for Intel Compute Sticks. I.e. you can’t run the system on other computers. Build 161203 uses “my” kernel 4.8.0-26-exton-IntelAtom with special patches, which I have Linuxium to thank for. READ MORE…

Kernel patches isn’t needed anymore, which means that any Linux system can be installed to the stick. For example ExTiX LXQt and AndEX 10.

About AndEX 10
I knew from before that ExTiX runs very well on the Compute Stick. Today I decided to test it with AndEX 10. And guess what? Also AndEX works very well! You can run it live (from a USB stick) or install it (which I did). AndEX 10 Build 200108 has GAPPS (Google Play Store etc), Aptoide App Manager, F-Droid, SpotifyAngry Birds and many other apps pre-installed. Those apps are fun to run on a BIG TV screen.
