How To Get Started With Custom Android Remix OS On Your PC

Remix OS is a kind of custom Android version that is designed to act like a desktop computer OS.  Remix OS was first launched by Jide in 2015.  However, at the time it was available only with its Remix Ultra Tablet.  Several other devices later inherited it.

New custom rom have now been launched by Jide that can be installed easily over the hardware that you already have.  Given that it acts like a desktop OS, it comes with a start menu, desktop and task-bar as well.  Apps can be downloaded over it just like you can do with a mobile phone.  More importantly, multitasking can be performed and apps can be resized over it.  In order to get started you just need to go to the official Jide website and download the OS file.  Next you just need to have a USB 3.0 flash drive that has 8 GB of space at least so that your pen drive is bootable.

How To get Started With And Run Remix OS

If running Remix is something you are interested, you can go visit the Liliputing website and check out the posts by Brad Linder.  He has comprehensive video tutorials on how to get started with and run Remix OX.    The Android-x86 project backs it up, which for years has been developing Android versions.  The Remix OS is currently still being considered to be in its “alpha” stage with a release date of January 12.  A newer version can be expected with additional hardware being supported, bugs fixed and improved performance.  Another really great thing is that it can easily be used over Linux, MAC or Windows.  With Windows, the tool that is included at the Official site can easily be used, and with Linux or Max UNetbootin can be used or another tool for loading Remix OS ISO on a flash drive.

Once your USB device is booted with Remix OS, you then simply restart your computer in boot mode.  That is necessary to do, or else your normal Windows will be loaded from HDD or SSD.  After it is up and running, there will be two different options that can be used. First of all, there is the Guest mode.  No changes or data are saved and it loads much faster.  Resident Mode is the second option, which will save changes and data.  Resident mode keeps all files, app and other things as is.

In terms of performance, Remix OS is incredibly fast and an entirely new experience that I am reasonably sure that users will love.  It can also be installed using a regular HDD as well, rather than a pen drive to gain decent space. I strongly suggest that you go ahead and give this a try.  It is free so there isn’t anything for you to worry about.
