Follow the video for a tutorial on how to install it :
AMIDuOS can run nearly all of the Android applications available in Android app markets. It comes with preloaded Amazon Appstore. AMIDuOS is also ARM v7 compatible, so it can run most popular ARM applications as well.
It works best with touchscreen devices since Android is designed for touch control, but you can use a mouse or a touchpad. AMI has provided a number of keyboard shortcuts to help you rotate, zoom, swipe, and tilt. However there is limited gamepad support.
You can try out AMIDuOS now for free for a trial period of 30 days . If you want to try out the Lollipop beta, you can, also for free, but instead for an increased duration of 60 days . You will probably also want to download and install the Google Play Store for it , as Amazon AppStore is a limited option for many .
