@silmathoron Yes, Byzantium. It needs patches in kernel, Mesa and Android image though - but nothing too weird or hacky, so hopefully this will work out-of-box in a not so distant future :)

Personally IMO the linux mobile ecosystem should just ditch Anbox and waydroid, stop spending resources trying to bridge those two worlds and focus on making good mainlinux linux mobile ready apps.

But I will admit that I may be a strange person and my use cases might be different from others :)

@joao @silmathoron Counterpoint: I have never really used any Android phone as my daily driver, but sometimes I did have a need to pull one out of my drawer (even if just to test an Android build of one of my games). Waydroid starts to work well enough that I can really see it running on my L5 being enough for those rare cases!

For a regular daily use, a native app will always be strongly prefered, as running two full blown OSes on a phone is quite noticeably wasteful ;)
