How to Run Android Apps on Nokia N9 with Alien Dalvik
If you own a Nokia N9, you might be wondering if you can run Android apps on your device. After all, Android has a huge library of apps that you might want to try out. Fortunately, there is a way to do that with Alien Dalvik, a software that allows you to run Android apps on non-Android devices.
Alien Dalvik is a port of the Dalvik virtual machine, which is the software in Google's Android operating system responsible for executing Android apps. Alien Dalvik wraps each Android app file in its own virtual machine so it can run on different platforms, such as MeeGo, which is the operating system of the Nokia N9.
In this article, we will show you how to download and install Alien Dalvik on your Nokia N9, and how to use it to run Android apps on your device.
Download and Install Alien Dalvik
The first step is to download and install Alien Dalvik on your Nokia N9. You can find the latest version of Alien Dalvik on OpenRepos.net, a community repository system for Sailfish OS and MeeGo Harmattan devices. You will need to create an account and enable the OpenRepos repository on your device before you can download Alien Dalvik.
Once you have downloaded the Alien Dalvik RPM file, you can install it using the File Manager app on your Nokia N9. Just tap on the file and follow the instructions to install it. You might need to restart your device after the installation is complete.
Download and Install Android Apps
The next step is to download and install Android apps that you want to run on your Nokia N9. You can find Android apps on various sources, such as APKPure.com, Aptoide.com, or F-Droid.org. You can also use the Google Play Store if you have installed it on your device.
Once you have downloaded the Android APK files, you can install them using the File Manager app on your Nokia N9. Just tap on the file and follow the instructions to install it. You might need to enable unknown sources in the settings of Alien Dalvik before you can install APK files from outside sources.
Run Android Apps on Nokia N9
The final step is to run Android apps on your Nokia N9. You can find the installed Android apps in the menu of your device, under the Alien Dalvik category. Just tap on the app icon and wait for it to launch. You should be able to use the app as if it was running on an Android device.
Alien Dalvik also allows you to share media from Sailfish apps to Android ones, and vice versa. You can also use Android browser as default one, hide and show navigation bar, open Android Downloads app, use Android apps with one hand, and more. You can access these features from the Aliendalvik Control app, which is installed along with Alien Dalvik.
With Alien Dalvik, you can run Android apps on your Nokia N9 without much hassle. This way, you can enjoy the best of both worlds: the sleek design and smooth performance of the Nokia N9, and the rich app ecosystem of Android.
