Development testers for Anbox
@marc_aurel just my 2 cents here. Did you try, before to navigate into the anbox folder, to type
sudo suand gaining the root access?
Second hint: you could try to move first your contacts file to an accessible folder, as for example Documents or Downloads, with
adb pushfrom your PC and then, from the terminal on your PC, you could type
adb shell, since I found out the latter has some limitations in writing on the phone partition. In the end, you could just copy your file, maybe better with root privilege, to

Someone suggested the following somewhere
mkdir -p /home/phablet/AnboxHome sudo chmod -R 777 /home/phablet/anbox-data/data/media/0 sudo mount --bind /home/phablet/anbox-data/data/media/0 /home/phablet/AnboxHome
But with the clear hint that making things 777 generally is not a good idea.
Of course the minimal way would be just the second line. The other are just there to have an easier/shorter path.
@bodow Thanks for the advice. The following approach works:
sudo su cp contacts.vcf /home/phablet/anbox-data/data/media/0/contacts.vcf
I resume. The system integration of Anbox seems to be very limited. The apps are shown in the app scope and the apps have hardware access with network and storage. I think, that's it.
It's possible to copy files with adb shell, but this is not for an average consumer.
It seems there is not service or data sharing. I haven't tested notifications, yet.
hi, i was trying use anbox on my nexus 5 device, and got
/bin/bash: pm: command not founderror, do you know this?

Are you executing
adb install MobileAssistant_1.apkon your PC? That would explain the
pm: command not found.
You have to transfer the apk to the phone and do
adb install ...there (assuming you have installed adb on the phone first; which by the output of dpkg is the case).
Basically this: https://forums.ubports.com/post/14834
@ingo thanks for the reply, I have install the apk successed
@mariogrip Excuse me. How can I build this ：http://cdimage.ubports.com/anbox-images/android-armhf-64binder.img ?
I followed this step ： https://github.com/ubports/anbox/blob/xenial/docs/build-android.md and lunch anbox_armv7a_neon-userdebug
Using my built android.img can't work.
I still have a question, why use android-armhf-64binder.img instead of android-armhf-32binder.img
I want to test some of the applications we rely on. like : qq、weixin、etc.
for my building , network cat not work

On my OnePlus One test phone, FDroid cannot find the network connection so cannot download its repositories. Has anyone with a OpO gotten it to work?
Have time to test anbox on Nexus5. Have lots of time after career as engineer, but am Newbie on Development testing!
