We're pleased to give you some fresh updates on the Anbox-Halium development over the past 2 weeks!
First of all, the name of the project has changed, but the objectives remains more than ever intact:
Anbox- Halium is now called WayDroid, this is to avoid confusion with the "old Anbox" service.
It is a compression of the words "Wayland" and "Android", the system allowing to run a LineageOS container on an Android base in the Wayland environment.
The new naming was chosen via a large community survey.
Also, a few technical improvements have been achieved:
- Make sure anbox-sensord is started anyway
- Use iptables-legacy incase it found
- Provide powervr GPU dependencies
Erfan, helped by a few developers, is continuing to improve the main server.
We are all very excited to test this service. For the more adventurous, a Telegram group is available to guide you through the installation:
The repos are hosted here:
For end users, it is best to wait until a successful installation program is available.
It is also advisable to wait for the publication of some patches from the core team, especially in the wayland environment to avoid a risk of system instability.
Nevertheless, the first feedback from alpha testers is very encouraging!
We take this opportunity to thank Erfan and his contributors for his work as well as the UBports foundation for its encouragement.
Thanks to help us to continuing this great project by supporting our campaign:
See you soon for more news and updates!
