Good day
I want to install an android emulator in Qubes and reading some review,
Genymotion is the best. The issue is that it run in Virtualbox, how can I
install it in Qubes?

Thanks

Nice question. I would also like to know.

Have you setup a Win7 HVM?

This maybe be the best place to try setup Genymotion.

May be theoretically possible but not for the faint-of-heart.

You would need to patch Xen to allow nested HVM, then use VGA-passthrough to give Genymotion a GPU.

Android on Qubes is not well supported (and probably shouldn't be).

There is a current thread discussing Android-x86 / RemixOS:

and Github issue:

More simple should be use an emulator that doesn't require virtualbox in
windows7 because for linux I haven't find something
