@greyltc I figured I might need to do this at some point. What you'd need to do is break /usr/share/android-x86/system.sfs out of it's SquashFS filesystem, and set SYSTEMIMG to the new filesystem you created in the config file.

It might also require some changes to the initrd, but if I recall it already had hooks for a rw root in it. Next chance I'll have to take a real crack at it is next week, I'll give it a shot if I don't hear anything.

Hey, thanks very much for putting this together! Generally it's working great, but I'm having some trouble with input and I think I can solve it by editing some input device configuration files1 that I see in the image in /system/usr/idc/

Do you know how I can run this with /system mounted as writeable?

Or maybe you can directly help solve my input problem: Some apps do not seem to be coded to respond to mouse clicks and only respond to screen taps. They are unusable here (they're actually even unusable on my pixel 2 phone with a mouse connected via USB OTG). For example, from the app store "Tap Titans 2". For testing, you can deliver the app a tap at x=50, y=50 by running input tap 50 50 in the andorid root shell and the app registers that. Any help would be appreciated!

I tried 9.0-r1 and it works, let me know if you find anything.

8.1-r3 has been released, but it is currently not booting properly on QEMU. Graphics do not seem to initialize. Still working on it, but help would be appreciated.

@alicavus --- sorry, I've been incommunicado for a bit. Fixed, and thank you.

@Refutationalist I checked out PKGBUILD file and find out that you actually uploaded version bump to r2. You forget to push .SRCINFO after makepkg --printsrcinfo > .SRCINFO

@Refutationalist, there is already in /usr/bin/qemu-android user,id=anet0,hostfwd=tcp::$NETPORT-:5000, so one can connect through command adb connect localhost:"net_port_here", but i couldn't found which value to enter to be able to connect

I haven't set up ADB yet, as that wasn't my use case. It's going to have to be ADB over the network of course, but I imagine that'd need to be configured inside the android instance. I'll play with it this week and add documentation if necessary.
