@stefano Whatsapp and Viber work for me...
@mihael That's interesting. Have you tried Chrome, Chromium or any other Browser? It just hangs here.
@malditobastardo install Root Uninnstaller app and then its easy.
@malditobastardo You can do this also when you do this:
sudo mount -o rw,remount /
sudo apt update
sudo apt install android-tools-adb
this is a example of the app-list installed apps on your device:
adb uninstall com.asvcorp.aftershock

@stefano Chrome doesn't work. Opera mini neither...
So how would one uninstall anbox completely?
Not sure if a bug or not, but when I run:
sudo lxc-console -ndefault -P /home/phablet/anbox-data/containers -t0
The out put is:
And it keeps looping over and over...
@joe sudo apt remove anbox-tool
sudo apt purge anbox-tool
Flash it over with Ubports installer without wipe?
@xray2000 Thank you a lot, this worked perfectly
@Stefano thanks for your tip I will try it next time
i'm having a play around with my pro 5 and trying to install Anbox to see what works etc
for some reason it seems to have got stuck on the install at his point and keep getting this reply :
"sudo fastboot flash boot anbox-boot-turbo.img
[sudo] password for ****:
sudo: fastboot: command not found"
am i doing something wrong here ?
p.s i'm fairly new to all this and am using terminal on linux mint if that has any bearing on things ?
@zx81 Fastboot is not installed on your PC.
Install (on 16.04 ) sudo apt install phablet-tools
Or on (18.04) sudo apt install fastboot
Then, You should type:
sudo fastboot flash bootimg anbox-boot-turbo-test.img
i'll give it a try
@stefano Sorry to be a pest
i'm getting this now : "$ sudo fastboot flash boot anbox-boot-turbo.img
< waiting for any device >
target didn't report max-download-size
sending 'boot' (20748 KB)...
OKAY [ 0.660s]
FAILED (remote: partition does not exist)
finished. total time: 0.660s "
@zx81 ''bootimg'' not boot !!!
@zx81 have you managed to flash it?

@mariogrip Great work! One question, though: How would I evaluate if something is an issue with anbox itself or with the image?
@stefano I have tried several times and got no further
It now says something about not having a sandbox installed
Have had to go to work now (work always gets in the way lol) so will have another go tomorrow
Thanks for your help so far
@zx81 Yeah, I had that message there as well.
It should be ok, though.
Refresh your Home screen (apps scope ) by dragging down and the Android apps should appear on the screen, or reboot.
You can also verify if its installed by typing in terminal on your phone:
@stefano Nothing showing at the minute , just going through process again
@mariogrip any information on what we Flo users would need to do to get it running, or do we still need the mainline kernel to be up and running under Halium properly first (I'm down to experiment!!)? I can attempt to whip up a custom kernel as long as I know what patches I'm applying to it! Kinda hoping it would be similar to arale and need the anbox drivers compiled in.
