  1. I installed the android tv on my Dell Latitude E5520 successfully but what I have on the desktop does not include the Youtube app on your video. On my scree are; Time, search, settings, network, Cynogenmod File Manager and a spinning “Preparing Recommendations”. I also have the following issues operating the system;
    1. The App Manager on the desktop (supposedly containing the Apps) did not bring up anything but a white blank page, it ends up with File Manager isnt responding message.
    2. I cannot add my account under the Setting, it indicates Settings has stopped.

    I am just helpless. Thanks for your attention.

    1. I am getting almost the same thing. I can get into settings but that is all. When it starts up it asks me which manager I want to use but they both seem to be the same.
      When I start the explorer sometimes it comes up and asks for permissions but after that it just spins.

      help?

      1. These applications (Google, Google Play Services, YouTube, etc.) are part of the Google Apps (Commonly referred to as Gapps) package, which does not come pre-installed. To install these, you will need to install the Gapps package in some way from opengapps.org who hosts all Gapps packages in a .zip file. These are meant to be flashed to the device, but you can find some gapps script to flash them over wifi, as Android-x86 has no built-in recovery. You can probably find a way to install gapps over at https://reddit.com/r/android-x86

  3. Hi, please assist,
    i installed android tv, but i can’t add account.
    every time i press on add account – i get “unfortunately settings has stopped working”….
    so basically i’m stuck with the basic system without any ability to add apps.

  4. Ok, this is loaded. How do you root it? I want root, just to make what I want to do easier, in other words I have some ideas I want to experiment with, in terms of wifi, etc. So I can do what Intend and test it. This is not something I necessarily would do with an Android TV, but I want to dev some apps for antother android TV so I need to make the test environment ’emulate’ my real device, this does not mean, I want to necessarily change anything on my real device, but I somewhat need more control over the dev device if I were to use it for development.

    1. entra en aplicaciones luego busca archivos y de aqui puedes instalar algunas app´s
      no puedo instalar ni netflix ni play store, solo logro instalar iptv, kodi , youtube , mx player

  11. I’ve installed Nougat in Virtualbox and boots fine, but filemanager will not start; only a white screen with message ‘filemanager is not responding’

  12. I have installed it on my Intel Compute Stick, and it is having a bootloop, how can I fix this? I have also installed EFI grub2, because this compute stick can only boot in UEFI OS.

  13. after trying to install this, grub menu wont boot windows 10 or android. I have windows 10 on the menu item but it wont run. Please help.

  14. Hello all,
    Tried to install the Android TV on my old pc and after it finished installing, it starts to loaf and then it has a kernel panic and it reboots. Same thing happens when I try to get it to work straight from the USB drive I install from (Live CD).
    Need some help please, thanks.

    1. 1.Delete the folder which is created after installing that.
      Steps for removing

      Click Start
      Type msconfig in the search box or open Run
      Go to Boot
      Select which Windows version you’d like to boot into directly
      Press Set as Default
      You can delete the earlier version by selecting it and then clicking Delete
      Click Apply
      Click OK
      Restart your computer

  15. Wow, this version looked very useful for me.
    I had tried to boot on this OS with Grub2Win, but it does not respond after entering the menu entry.
    My unit only boots normally with RemixOS and PhoenixOS, other androidX86 versions can not normal boot.
    Have any method for my config?

    My configuration as below:
    Main OS: Win10 x64 build 10586
    grub2win: 0.9.7.0
    Partition type: NTFS/GPT
    Platform: Intel + Nvidia notebook
    CPU: Intel I7 7700HQ
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050
    Storage: NVMe SSD PCIe
    SATA Controller Mode: AHCI
    Boot Mode: UEFI

    Thanks for your help! – Stephen

  18. I can get the apps to load and work by side-loading. I do get the white screen when attempting to use the file manager from the home screen but if you open the settings and scroll down through the apps to “files” not “file manager” you’ll get a very generic file manager to load. from there I was able to load apk files that I downloaded from 3rd party sources (ex. apkpure) on my windows machine , copied them to a flash drive formatted with ntfs and then plug the flash drive in and refresh the “files” app. You’ll see the flash drive contents and you can simply double click the apk and install it (I plugged a usb mouse into the laptop for easier navigation and selection”. I had more success if the first apk I installed was ES File Explorer. Then you can exit the “files” app and open ES File explorer. From ES File explorer I accessed the shared file on my windows machine via “NETWORK” “LAN” “SCAN” and entering my credentials. I was able to get most of my apps to install, some errored out though. But after installing 5 or 6 small apps and running them successfully, it would always start erroring out with a “need to create more disk space to install this app” message. Even though ES file explorer showed that I had close to 500 gb available.

    I’m assuming this is due to the fact that I couldn’t get it to successfully reboot or boot again after shutdown like the rest of you on here. I only had the above success if I chose the option to load the OS immediately after the install instead of choosing the reboot option. So that being said, yes I got apps to install and work well, but each time I tried to reboot I had to repeat the whole process of installation from scratch again and would get to around 5 apps to install and work before telling me my disk space was full and then it would break.

    I tried these methods on a 500gb internal laptop hard drive, a 32gb usb flash drive, and a 16gb SD card, and all had the same result as listed above.

    Note 1: the apps I was able to install and use were, “ES File Explorer”, “VLC PLayer (worked 2 times and didn’t 2 times), “Perfect Player”, “Terrarium tv”, “redbox”, and “Google Play Services Information”. Apps that wouldn’t work were, “kodi (always kicked the disk space error in)”, “Droid Buddy”, “MX Player”, “Google Chrome”, “Google Play Services”, and “TV Launcher”.

    That’s all the apps I tried as it was too frustrating to repeat the process so many times.

    Note I was using a Dell XPS L702X laptop that has a 2nd generation 64bit “i7 processor”, 16gig ddr3 ram” and a “2gig gddr Nvidia GPU” a pretty powerful machine back in it’s day but it did not have a Windows installation on the hard drive that I was working with, I used a hard drive from my stack of drives that i had freshly formatted to NTFS and then to exFat trying to see if it was the original format causing the issues.

    Hope this helps someone come up with the booting solutions.
