# Manual Install on Linux

# Installation

!!ATTENTION!! Bliss OS also supports Jaxparrow's Android-x86 Installer for Linux. Source can be found here: https://github.com/jaxparrow07/Androidx86-Installer-Linux

Create a directory at / as /blissos

  1. Extract initrd.img, ramdisk.img, kernel and system.* from your desired blissOS ISO into the /blissos directory.
  2. Make a dir called /blissos/data (Only valid for android-pie, for higher versions you need data.img, can be created with make_ext4fs)
  3. Create a new grub entry with this the following code:

menuentry "BlissOS" { set SOURCE_NAME="blissos" search --set=root --file /$SOURCE_NAME/kernel
linux /$SOURCE_NAME/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0 androidboot.hardware=android_x86_64 androidboot.selinux=permissive acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode SRC=/$SOURCE_NAME
initrd /$SOURCE_NAME/initrd.img

# Example for making a 8gb image:

dd if=/dev/zero of=data.img bs=1024 count=0 seek=$[102410248]
sudo mkfs.ext4 -F data.img
