>What is Remix OS? Where do I download it?
Remix OS is a fork of Android x86 that is modded for better usability with mice and touchpads. It's designed to run on your PC.
>Where do I get Google Play and gapps?
1. Download GMSInstaller.apk
2. Install APK file and run it.
3. Click on "One-click to install Google Services" (this will automatically download google play services).
4. Clear the data for google Google Services and Playstore or you'll have problems getting apps.
>How do I root this?
>Isn't this Chrome OS?
It looks like Chrome OS but it doesn't have the horrible bullshit lock-in and shitty web apps.

>Won't they get sued by Google?
Remix OS has already existed for more than a year, raised over a million dollars over two kickstarters, and sold devices with Remix OS on it. So probably not.
>Will this run on my Mac?
>What's the deal with the dumb benchmark on their website?
Who ever made that was a retard.
>Is this the year of the Linux desktop?
Why run Android on a PC? Just look at these benchmarks!
The shilling is real.
The EULA flat out says that if you install this OS, then you waive OWNERSHIP of all your files. Let's also not forget that you agree to not say anything bad about the Chinese government.
Now fuck off.
>that's what you deserve for buying AMD
Funny thing is I didn't even buy it. It was given to me by a friend who upgraded his laptop.
Fortunately for me there are better distros out there than this piece of shit :')
>peaks at 71 degrees
Hopefully we'll see some useful posts in this thread, last one was pretty shit tbqh.
You can root Remix OS in windows too, but I'm too lazy to make a guide.. just know that you need an EXT4 driver (eg. Ext2Fsd) to open system.img, then mount it with whatever program you have, I already said before I use OSFMount but there's probably something better, also since you have the EXT4 driver you can open and edit data.img too as you wish, you can transfer files from a Windows system to Remix OS easily (pic related).
Anyways, any suggestions to sync your phone with Remix OS? I've plenty of apps on my Android phone that I wanted to try on PC but I don't really want to go through the trouble of reinstalling and reupdating them all, losting all my progress in the process. Any ideas?
Go away with your stolen, GPL license violating, data stealing crap
Stop shilling this stupid horseshit. At least you fucks learned to hire someone to manage this shit for you instead of writing Jaspreet-core english posts about "o no it has of leak!", and now are trying to sell us on using a fucking mobile OS on desktops, as if that's a great idea.
>Because they wanted people to use Chrome OS.
it doesn't even support android apps, they should have just reskinned normal android and then fixed it to run with mouse and keyboard on pc.
Google didn't want users to have the same freedom they do on Android. They wanted to lock people to their proprietary web apps and milk them with cloud services and data mining.
I'd say it's necessary, but it's not mandatory, though USB 2.0 takes like a hour and half for Remix OS to start the first time in resident mode, the OS needs at least 8GB because just the system image plus the data image take over 6GB.
You should try installing it on your HDD if you don't have an USB 3.0 drive with at least 8GB, there're guides to do it, you can unlock the 4GB space limit too.
Android OS is bloated and runs slower then chrome OS because of the Java shit built in. Some android apps works fine in chrome os when compiled and installed with the ARC extension.
trying to install this on a hard drive
Got partitions with lvm
In the physical partition there are a couple logical ones. Made them smaller, but can't figure out how to make their physical partition smaller to make a new one for remix. What do?
Kek, Phoenix OS is an entire level worse. It's also proprietary, comes from China, and no one knows anything about the devs. They just fucking appeared out of no where and started shilling on the remix forums. Phoenix is more likely to be a botnet than remix.
Holy shit, they're actually doing something to fix the problem

>scroll down a bit, they're all asian
Maybe there's truth to this claim after all.
How does it crash? at the boot loader or after the android logo? I went through some annoying troubleshooting to get it working properly on my system too but it looks good now (except it's laggy as hell), I'm using USB3 16Gb stick on a dektop with i5 4460 and GF GT 630.
it eventually started up after crashing 10 times where it said "upgrading software" or something along those lines, and when it finally started up the browser wouldn't load anything and would just crash
Resident mode right? it's probably like you said the speed is too low, when I tried booting from my USB2 stick I gave up because it didn't even manage to go past the "please be patient" stage, before even booting android, if I waited a hour or two it mgiht have been able to (that's basically the stage when the system creates the data.img file which is a 4GB EXT4 partition and USB2 write speed is 2-3 MB/s at best so it takes a lot of time if it goes well).
The only choices are: use an USB3 stick on USB3 port or try installing the OS on your HDD/SSD.
Here is a guide by the way: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/remix-os-for-pc/bvYa1PWQHP8/VImcJ4CSAQAJ
On Linux yes you can in qemu, people posted some configurations in an older thread:image="Remix_OS_for_PC_64_B2016011201_Alpha.iso"
kvm -cdrom "$image" -m 2048 -machine pc-q35-2.5 -smp cpus=2iso="Remix_OS_for_PC_64_B2016011201_Alpha.iso"
kvm -cdrom "$iso" -m 2048 -machine q35 -smp cpus=2 -vga std -cpu hostsudo qemu-system-x86_64 -cpu host -smp 4 -m 2G -cdrom Remix_OS_for_PC_64_B2016011201_Alpha.iso -enable-kvm
I tried to get it running on windows but no luck so far.

Um, did you forget to write at least one sentence? I still don't understand why I should use remixOS when it's just a shitty fork of Android x86. What did they even change? It has different graphics?
Too bad it doesn't support custom launchers, nova was installed too but when I try to run it shows the message "no custom launchers supported" but it's probably something that can be bypassed in the future, they're going to release some code on github so that should help a bit for adding more rice and other shit to this os.
