If you have been on the Google code pages of the Android-X86 project recently and tried to download anything you will have noticed that the feature is no longer working. The reason is fairly simple, the project had been marked for deletion by Google. The team insist that this is a mistake on Google’s part, and nothing untoward has gone on.
The following info had been posted on the project web site.
You may already notice all the download links we hosted in Google code are blocked. Worse, the site was marked “Scheduled for deletion due to Violation of TOS”.
We believe this is due to a wrong result of Google code’s auto-scan process. We have tried to contact Google engineers to correct the error. But so far there is no response, probably due to the new year holidays.
Need your help
We are trying to correct the situation. But so far there is almost nothing we can do except waiting Google’s reaction. We need your help:
Be patient. Stop asking why you cannot download the files. That doesn’t help.
If you have channels to talk to Google guys, help talk to them.
In the worst case, we may have to stop hosting the project in Google code. If someone can donate servers and bandwidth to replace the hosting, that’s very appreciated.
With the recent release of Jelly Bean test ISO’s we can only hope this mistake is soon rectified and the project can continue making Android available for PC’s.
