From extras

apt install anbox

Or install anbox from HAM.

You might have to enable zram or classic swap (at least 1GB).


The initscript should automatically start anbox container-manager.

supervise-daemon anbox-container-manager --start /usr/bin/anbox -- container-manager --daemon --privileged --data-path=/var/lib/anbox --android-image=/usr/share/anbox/android.img
\_ /usr/bin/anbox container-manager --daemon --privileged --data-path=/var/lib/anbox --android-image=/usr/share/anbox/android.img

As user:

export ANBOX_LOG_LEVEL=debug
anbox session-manager

This should output:

user@devuan-pinephone:~$ anbox session-manager
[ 2021-01-18 14:20:08] [Renderer.cpp:165@initialize] Using a surfaceless EGL context
[ 2021-01-18 14:20:08] [Renderer.cpp:248@initialize] Successfully initialized EGL
[ 2021-01-18 14:21:03] [session_manager.cpp:264@operator()] Android successfully booted

In another terminal, also as user:

anbox launch --package=org.anbox.appmgr --component=org.anbox.appmgr.AppViewActivity

There is also an option with using but I have not gotten it to work successfully.

Please note that it takes a long time to start an activity for the first time. So be patient. Subsequent runs should be faster. You can view "progress" in htop. anbox should be using the CPU. When the usage is low, you should be ready to start activities.

You can also find some useful logs in /var/lib/anbox/logs
