Video: ICS Ported Over To Asus X101 Netbook Thanks to Android-x86, Looks Surprisingly Usable

The Android-x86 project has been around for a while, trying to get our favorite operating system ported over to even more machines around the world, namely desktops and laptops. This is a product of that drive to rule everything; Ice Cream Sandwich running on an ASUS EeePC. The ASUS X101Ch has had Android 4.0.3 shoehorned into its shell and it doesn’t seem to be all that bad.


This is in no way endorsed by ASUS but seeing as how the company has had success with their Transformer and Transformer Prime it’s not surprising to see this port happen. Like every port this early-on, it could use some spit and shine but a large amount of the ROM seems to be working and even features some tweaks to make it useable for netbooks rather than touchscreen. If you’ve got one of these netbooks lying around and feel like some hackery, hit the source link below.

    I downloaded the x86 ICS build, changed some of the installation cmd line to install this on a cheap MSI laptop, everything works and the performance is good.  If I am correct (don’t quote me) but I think you could essentially dual boot this on any laptop (if you wanted to) using the same installation cmd line changes. 🙂

  • I wants to own it!

    Be nice to get ice cream sandwich for my Logitech Revue. Or any version of Android that wasn’t purpose-broken.

  • Clearly someone forgot to put the dog in silent mode, while they were making that mistake..someone left a clock on

    Funny that it has 4.0.3 but my galaxy nexus doesn’t.

      Neither does mine – 4.0.4 installed.
