Before install Waydroid, make sure that your kernel supports binder and ashmem module (currently only linux-zen does)

Keep in mind that Waydroid only works with Wayland compositors. It also does not work yet with proprietary NVIDIA driver.

After install waydroid and waydroid-image, run this command to initialize the container:

# waydroid init

Then the container can be started via waydroid-container.service. The official project group/channel can be found on:

This also requires wl-clipboard package to work, should be listed as an optional dependency.

after update kernel to 5.18. run waydroid upgrade -o to add sys.use_memfd=true in /var/lib/waydroid/waydroid_base.prop. some of android will override sys.use_memfd to false.

mount /usr/share/waydroid-extra/images/system.img somewhere
cd somewhere
grep -Ir sys.use_memfd

to find them. and use your favorite editor to remove them

for kernel with CONFIG_BPF_UNPRIV_DEFAULT_OFF=y (such as linux-zen>=5.15.14), you need to set kernel.unprivileged_bpf_disabled=0 via sysctl.
otherwise binder transaction will failed (edit: maybe not caused by this)

Has anyone here run into:

Failed to get service waydroidplatform, trying again...

... with the waydroid-container service running?

I've been getting this with the linux-zen kernel.

Looks like several users (including me) have issues running waydroid with the linux-xanmod-anbox kernel (from AUR:

Edit: I can confirm that this can be fixed by adding "psi=1" to kernel command like suggested here:
