Trying to set up an environment where I can actually test Android apps on PC despite ARM binaries. It seems that I need Android 11 for that, currently available as Bliss OS 14 (alpha) which won’t install in VirtualBox. So far everything suggests that this cannot be helped. 🤷‍♂️

So Bliss OS 14 is currently a hot mess that was probably only declared an Alpha release for PR reasons. On the other hand, the official Android Emulator in the SDK seems to work reasonably well by now. The app crashes on startup, but that’s at least something.

Turned out, the crash was simply OOM. Running the emulator with 4GB of memory did the job. Now I can finally start testing things.
