Run from Docker

We have gained support for running our images from Docker thanks to @sickcodes and his Dock-Droid project. Our stable Android 9 based images are default, but you can load up a specific image as well (helpful for testing in a development environment)

Initial setup

Before you do anything else, you will need to turn on hardware virtualization in your BIOS. Precisely how will depend on your particular machine (and BIOS), but it should be straightforward.

Then, you'll need QEMU and some other dependencies on your host:

# ARCH
sudo pacman -S qemu libvirt dnsmasq virt-manager bridge-utils flex bison iptables-nft edk2-ovmf
# UBUNTU DEBIAN
sudo apt install qemu qemu-kvm libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon-system bridge-utils virt-manager
# CENTOS RHEL FEDORA
sudo yum install libvirt qemu-kvm

Then, enable libvirt and load the KVM kernel module:

sudo systemctl enable --now libvirtd
sudo systemctl enable --now virtlogd
echo 1 | sudo tee /sys/module/kvm/parameters/ignore_msrs
sudo modprobe kvm

Quick Start

Run Bliss OS 11.x Image https://img.shields.io/docker/image-size/sickcodes/dock-droid/latest?label=sickcodes%2Fdock-droid%3Alatest

docker run -it \
--device /dev/kvm \
-v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
-e "DISPLAY=${DISPLAY:-:0.0}" \
-p 5555:5555 \
sickcodes/dock-droid:latest

Increase RAM by adding this line: -e RAM=4 \

Want to use your WebCam and Audio too?

v4l2-ctl --list-devices

lsusb to get the hostbus and hostaddr

Bus 003 Device 003: ID 13d3:56a2 IMC Networks USB2.0 HD UVC WebCam

Would be -device usb-host,hostbus=3,hostaddr=3

docker run -it \
--privileged \
--device /dev/kvm \
-v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
-e "DISPLAY=${DISPLAY:-:0.0}" \
-p 5555:5555 \
-p 50922:10022 \
--device /dev/video0 \
-e EXTRA='-device usb-host,hostbus=3,hostaddr=3' \
--device /dev/snd \
sickcodes/dock-droid:latest

Want to use SwiftShader acceleration?

docker run -it \
--privileged \
--device /dev/kvm \
-v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
-e "DISPLAY=${DISPLAY:-:0.0}" \
-p 5555:5555 \
-p 50922:10022 \
--device=/dev/dri \
--group-add video \
-e EXTRA='-display sdl,gl=on' \
sickcodes/dock-droid:latest

In development by BlissOS team: mesa graphics card + OpenGL3.2.

Use your own image/naked version

# get container name from
docker ps -a
# copy out the image
docker cp container_name:/home/arch/dock-droid/android.qcow2 .

Use any generic ISO or use your own Android AOSP raw image or qcow2

Where, "${PWD}/disk.qcow2" is your image in the host system.

docker run -it \
-v "${PWD}/android.qcow2:/home/arch/dock-droid/android.qcow2" \
--privileged \
--device /dev/kvm \
--device /dev/video0 \
-v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix \
-e "DISPLAY=${DISPLAY:-:0.0}" \
-p 5555:5555 \
-p 50922:10022 \
-e EXTRA='-device usb-host,hostbus=3,hostaddr=3' \
sickcodes/dock-droid:latest

How to connect using ADB

In the Android terminal emulator:

Edit /default.prop

Change ro.adb.secure=1 to ro.adb.secure=0

E.g.

su
sed -i -e 's/ro\.adb\.secure\=1/ro\.adb\.secure\=0/' /default.prop

In the Android terminal emulator, run adbd

Then from the host, you can can connect using either: adb connect localhost:5555

adb connect 172.17.0.2:5555
