Google Android 4.0, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich, has been released for x86. There is an ISO available, featuring hardware acceleration for AMD Radeon, but not yet for Intel-based systems. Several things don't work as of yet.

I take it back.. I can't get it to boot in VirtualBox or Vmware Workstation 7.

If someone figures it out, please share.

I managed to get it to start on VirtualBox.

Make sure you change your virtual disk controller to SATA in AHCI mode. It would not boot for me on the default IDE (was stuck on Detecting Android-x86.... (lots of dots)).

Anyone knows how to do that in qemu? It's been ages since I used qemu.
