Wabbitemu is for Chrome OS (sort-of)

NOTE: This is very broken, there are no guaranties that this will work.

Chrome has gotten an update (chrome 37 which is now kind of old) which allows it to run Android Applications (.apk). This works not by emulating android but by running a version of Android's runtime environment. Similar to Android's ART chrome has gotten ARC, they preform the same functions but are for different OSes. It was originally only for ChromeOS but vladikoff has ported it to other OSes (and removed a restriction which only allowed 4 apps).

Installation:

  • Download ARChon
    (click to show/hide)
  • Unzip the download
  • Open the Chrome Extensions page (chrome://extensions/)
  • Select Developer Mode
  • Click load unpacked extension...
  • Select the folder that you unzipped and click open
  • Go to next step...

Packing Wabbitemu as an extension:

Quote
These next steps assume that you have a relatively recent android phone or tablet (past 5 years).

You can also package it on a computer but I have not tried it, here is a link to the guide: https://github.com/vladikoff/chromeos-apk/blob/master/archon.md#instructions

  • Download Wabbitemu from the play store: Wabbitemu
  • Download ARChon from the play store: ARChon
  • Open ARChon and follow the prompts provided
  • When it asks Phone or Tablet Mode choose based on your screen resolution,
    Phone for Screens < 1080p
    Tablet for Screens ≥ 1080p
  • Make sure it says portrait (the app doesn't have portrait mode)
  • When it finishes compiling make sure to email the zip to yourself.

Installing Wabbitemu:

  • Download the Wabbitemu .zip that you just emailed yourself and unzip it
  • Open the Chrome Extensions page (chrome://extensions/)
  • Select Developer Mode
  • Click load unpacked extension...
  • Select the folder that you unzipped and click open
  • Click launch under the extension called 'Wabbitemu'

I hope that at least some people can use this. Feel free to ask any questions.

Interesting. I thought that Chromebooks supported Android stuff in the first place, so it's good that they now get more compatibility. However, I think the Android version of Wabbitemu is very outdated, right?

Not anymore, the only features missing are the debug tools.

Aah ok. I thought it was no longer updated because Geekboy1011 seemed to only maintain the Windows version which Buckeye left behind before vanishing.

It got updated a couple of months after the windows version with TI-84+ CSE bootfree was updated.
