How to run Remix OS 3.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 using Virtualbox

Remix OS 3.0 has been officially released with many improvements, based on Android Marshmallow version. There are several ways to run Remix OS 3.0 on your computer. You can create a Remix OS Live USB and boot your computer with the USB. Or, you can also run Remix OS 3.0 using Virtualbox. Thanks to OSBOXES team which provides the VDI image file of Remix OS 3.0.  With this VDI we can simply attach it to a virtual guest storage and run the guest machine.

I have created a quick walk through this Remix OS on Virtualbox. You can watch it here:

A. Before we go, first you will need to install Oracle Virtualbox. If you are using Ubuntu 16.04, you can read how to install Virtualbox 5.1.5 on Ubuntu 16.04. Then, you will also need to download the VDI image from osboxes website. You can navigate to this page below to get the file:

Select the architecture you want to use. I recommend to use the 64 bit version.

B. Open Virtualbox and create a new virtual machine.

Select Other from the Type and select Other/Unknown 64 bit from the version list. Press Next to continue.
