Limbo is a PC Emulator (x86) based on QEMU. You can now run Debian or DSL Linux on your Android device without root.
* Warning! Limbo works only with a few Desktop OSes. Windows XP and newer, Ubuntu, and all other large OS are NOT supported due to their heavy usage of the SD card and CPU.
* 'Hacker's Keyboard' app (available in Play Store) is recommended for use with Limbo.
* Emulation speeds depend on your device and OS. I recommend using a device with at least a dual core CPU.
*USB devices do work, but are very complicated to set-up
Users are free to download the source, and modify it. You may send me a message to have your version added to this project.

Emulator is work but in SDL interface when I click the three-dot menu it would crash! Please fix it! System is Android 5.1 arm64. My device is LG G4.
Honestly good, been trying for days to install Win95/Win98 on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. Had a hard time (impossible) until I find on youtube that the Hacker Keyboard was absolutely necessary. Then it turned almost okay, as long as I don't touch at the option button on the upper right. Actually sometimes it doesn't crash and you can install Win 98 (I did, it took 4 hours easy) and you can get the keyboard. But if you try to mask the keyboard, well chances are 99% crash. Don't even try to use the save state, it will automatically crash. That's too bad but hey, better than nothing. I'll try to install old games since DosBox doesn't work. A few corrections would be welcome, especially when we want to mask/display the keyboard or use stave state.
During emulation, if I were to open the tab with the keyboard and mouse settings (the options I guess) the app force closes. It doesn't do it on my old phone, but it doesn't have a lot of storage space. My current phone is an HTC desire 816.
Good job with this program, but there's only a few Oses that work. Cannot work properly with puppy linuxes (any) And cannot run any versión of OS/2 with PM. Would be good if the developer fix this issue.
I think Limbo works well and is an interesting application. It is slow but still usable. Tested it with Windows 98 installed and booted from a hard disk image and it worked faster than I expected and did not crash. FreeDOS also worked fine. I also tried my Nanolinux distribution and that worked too. I wrote a Wiki page about that describing how to install Limbo, Hackers Keyboard and Nanolinux and how to run Nanolinux with Limbo on an Android system. Could compile a small program with gcc and run it. My Nanolinux project and the Wiki page mentioned can be found on Sourceforge. I am not allowed to provide a link here. What is missing I think is a utility on Android to copy files from the hard disk image to a file in the Android file system. Georg
