How I got it to run Company wants to run a i386 qt4 app on a 21 inch tablet. Used ubuntu 12.04 and unity 2d.. I could not create a image with 4.4.4 and /data/media so I loaded a ROM with 4.2.2 and /sdcard being fat32. Created the image.. Backed it up. Loaded 4.4.4 with /data/media fuse stuff.. And told the mount to be at /storage/legacy/0 instead of /storage/emulated/0. HP touchpad was how I built the image but plan on using a 21 inch slate. Touchpad can run Ubuntu native. I used qemu 2.2 to run the qt4 app with i386 libs in /use/gnemul/qemu-i386/... I can also run some wine apps this way. Thanks for the great app!
