    I spent a good majority of the day trying to put Windows 95 and 3.1 on my Droid using DosBox, and I finally did it.



    Heres how I did it on my blog that I started today:

    Will get photos up soon.

    Its just DosBox running ontop of Android 2.1, So I can still get calls. However, Getting on the internets is kinda a challenge. But I want to work with an os I am more familar with, so when I get Win95 or 98 on it. I will start for interwebs!

    and lol, Classic Mac OS on Android? Heh, I'll try.

    I am doing this right away! I have two unopened copies of Windows 3.11 and I think one is going to be cracked open for this. Thank you so much for the guide.

    So I've got everything that I need, including a brand new never used sealed in box Windows 3.1 , except when I was preparing to start the process last night, I noticed something mentioned on the ADosBox page... it currently only supports hardware keyboards. As a Nexus One user, that leaves me at a standstill until it is fixed. I wonder, however, if it would work with a Bluetooth keyboard (I very highly doubt it) but I'll test it this weekend.

    Once I can actually use ADosBox, I will give this a shot.

    Update:

    I got my iGo Stowaway Keyboard working with ADosBox (buggy, but it works) and I was ready to go ahead and begin the process. But my Windows laptop which I have had defunct and in the closet for over a year doesn't seem to work anymore (and it has an insertable floppy drive which i was going to use to make my 3.1 image). So it's gonna be another couple days before I try it. And when I do, you will be getting full credit for the process.

    SUCCESS!

    drraccoon, this couldn't have been done without you. i'm going to put together a post about it tomorrow and will definitely be giving you all the credit. just had to make some minor adjustments to accommodate the Nexus One.

    as pointed out by drraccoon, this is far from usable. more just proof of concept. but here it is on my Nexus One using ADosBox...

    drraccoon, a HUGE thank you to you for your guide. This couldn't have been done without you. I made sure to include full credit to you for this with links to you.

    I'd love to in the future. At this moment though, I wouldn't have the time and would hate to disappoint you. Between my two sites which I hardly get the time to update anymore, a third that is being worked on, my full-time job, and my side/hobby job, I don't have much additional time

    But I'd definitely love to hold on to that offer for the future if possible.

    Thank you though. I really appreciate it.
