Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Android-x86 Project

Apps Description
Android-x86 Project, which aims “Porting Android to x86″ or “Run Android on Your PC”. It is a project to port Android open source project to x86 platform, formerly known as “patch hosting for android x86 support”. The original plan is to host different patches for android x86 support from open source community. A few months after the owner created the project, they found out that they could do much more than just hosting patches. So they decide to fork their code base that will provide android x86 support on different x86 platforms, and set up a git server to host it. To reflect this major change, they create this new project.
