Android-x86 is an open source project that makes an unofficial porting of Google’s Android mobile operating system to run on devices powered by AMD and Intel x86 processors, rather than RISC-based ARM chips.
Developers Chih-Wei Huang and Yi Sun originated the project in 2009. The project began as a series of patches to the Android source code to enable Android to run on various netbooks, tablets and ultra-mobile PCs. Yi later quit due to personal affairs. Huang is the current project maintainer. Currently active developers include Mauro Rossi and Michael Goffioul.
