Quick toot on how to install Waydroid on :
- install lxc
- download danctnix.arikawa-hi.me/waydroi and install it using pacman -U
- Add binder.devices="anbox-binder,anbox-hwbinder,anbox-vndbinder,binder,hwbinder,vndbinder" to boot/boot.txt right after loglevel in the arguments line
- in /boot run ./mkscr
- reboot
- start Waydroid using sudo waydroid-start
- for stopping it use sudo waydroid-stop

If you notice that it starts slowly you can stop it and retry until the animation is smooth.

If you're using a 2GB it'll probably run slower and crash way more times since there is less memory and I suspect that believes that the whole RAM is for itself.

Also you might want to decrease the resolution in Android settings.

Have fun!

Ooooh man thanks! I‘m very new to Linux and I can‘t wait to try.

@xaviers@fosstodon.org A little tip too add once the image is running. It is scaled pretty big. To adjust do to settings -> display -> display size and set it to smallest or maybe smaller. Makes it all way more legible and typing is easier

@xaviers Any chance for Mobian package with Waydroid? 🙂

@fervi I'm sure Waydroid will be available on Mobian eventually

@xaviers thanks. I tried to port manually, but it was to hard for me

@xaviers It seems the link is broken. Do you have an updated link?
