Early Bliss OS build brings Android Pie to your PC
I own a OnePlus 5 and recently I started using an Android Pie-based ROM on it. The experience of using Pie is a lot more interesting than the experience of using Android Oreo. Two weeks in, I still feel like I’m using a device fresh out of the box. Imagine having the ability to translate that same experience into the world of the Personal Computer. That’s where Bliss OS comes in.
This Android Pie-based Bliss OS ROM is considered the bleeding edge of Android x86 development. Starting with this latest release, Bliss OS will come equipped with reworked code from the Android-x86 project and the Bliss OS Oreo releases in order to make the OS more dynamic for the future, taking inspiration from Intel’s Project Celadon and XDA Recognized Developer phhhusson. These are considered development ROMs at this point, so proceed with caution.
Here is the list of known bugs at this time:
- Packages Manager sometimes crashes the system. This will require you to wait, then open a terminal and use $ su && svc wifi disable, and when it comes back, $ su && svc wifi enable
- Screenshots aren’t working yet
- Video playback does not work right as of yet
- Sound issues on many machines still
Perform the steps laid out in the following text in order to successfully run Android Pie on your machine:
1. Download the “.ISO” file and burn it to a USB Drive using a software like Rufus.
2. Disable all options that tend to boot security like “Secure Boot” and “Bitlocker.”
3. Boot up the USB Drive and test Bliss OS live in order to make sure everything’s in place.
4. Install the OS.
