Yep,

I have, works fine - I used Androidx86 most recent image - 7.1r1 from here:

http://www.android-x86.org/

Bang that on a 32 bit grub enabled USB stick and away you go - remember, pulling out the usb stick means android stops working ;)

p.s. Its not massively stable and you will get force closes on it like with any custom ROM that's been ported.

Yea, it does work, you can simply test it if you want by doing the following:

1. Download the Android x86 image you want
2. Download Rufus
3. Pop your USB disk in
4. Create a bootable USB with the Androidx86 image file
5. Reboot tablet, enter BIOS (Power+Vol-up)
6. Change the Boot type to Legacy Android from Win 8.1
7. Plug your newly made USB in via OTG adaptor
8. Save and exit from bios
9. Hold down the Vol-Up key again
10, Select your USB (with say something like "Kingston DataTraveller")
11. Profit.

In order to go back to windows after this, just go back into the BIOS and change OS type back to Windows 8.1, remove the USB drive and reboot.

Hello,

I installed android x86 7.1r1 on my linx vision 8, the only thing that bothers me is that the sound does not work on the jack 3.5mm, the sound rests on the speakers.

A solution ?

Sorry for my english, I'm french !
