Development testers for Anbox
Ingo last edited by
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

I case anyone wants to run the Anbox AppManager by tapping on an icon, here is my .desktop file to do that:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Anbox AppManager Exec=/usr/bin/anbox launch --package=org.anbox.appmgr --component=org.anbox.appmgr.AppViewActivity Terminal=false Type=Application Icon=/home/phablet/.local/share/applications/anbox_logo.png X-Ubuntu-Touch=true
Save this as
The logo is this one: https://docs.anbox.io/_static/logo.png
I saved it as

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!
