You can download a normal live iso image file for android to use on your laptop or netbook. Burn it on a cd, ( DvD won’t  work ), insert cd to the cd drive, and reboot the computer/laptop, and you will have it ready to test, without making any change to your system.

Creating a Live USB for Live Android

You can contact them on twitter, if you need help. I did get help through twitter, really fast. I was trying to create a Live USB using the iso file, but they said, its not ready for using on USB drives.

So, netbook users ( most of those netbooks come without a cd drive ) you may need to wait until version 3.0. The current version has some problem with usb file creator. When it’s ready, you can use this program to create a Live USB.

Me ?

I have downloaded the file, but I couldn’t burn the cd correctly, so, I need some more time to test this. Will update you all once I get this to work on my laptop … stay tuned .. you know what is RSS feed right ?

Now, Have some fun, watch the video?
