DOSBox Running Perfectly on Vibrant!

Those of you who are interested in running emulators on your mobile Android devices may be interested to learn that XDA forum member keenerb, has managed to get DOSBox running perfectly on his Samsung Vibrant.

For those that are not familiar with DOSBox, it is an emulator software that emulates an IBM PC compatible computer running MS-DOS, and can run old MS-DOS games.

The XDA member has DOSBox running inside his old Debian chroot that has been migrated from his old MT3G and Cliq. The emulator seems to run quite well playing some old SSI gold box games and various Ultima games just fine.

To find out more, check out the modification thread.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage.
