Now that the Android version of iFruit is out, it's possible to run iFruit using an Android virtual machine on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

 

  1. Download and install Genymotion, an Android virtual environment: https://cloud.genymo...chpad/download/
  2. Launch Genymotion. Press "Add" (you'll need a Genymotion account) and select Galaxy Nexus 4.2.2 - with Google Apps.
  3. Once this has installed, double click "Google Nexus - 4.2.2…" under "Your virtual devices". You'll be asked whether you want to configure "ADB connection". Select "No".
  4. Android will launch as a virtual machine on your computer. Insert your Google Account details (or create a new account) when prompted by Android.
  5. Go to Google Play, search for "iFruit" and install.
  6. Launch iFruit, insert your Rockstar Social Club account details when prompted.

I just did this (my phone is incompatible with iFruit), and am now playing around with iFruit.

 

Edit: GTASkunk suggests using Bluestacks, as an alternative method (Windows/Mac only).

 

It should be possible to do this without Genymotion, since this software simply streamlines installing a virtual machine manager (VirtualBox) and providing Android images. I haven't found an Android image I can successfully install iFruit on, other than the one provided by Genymotion.

Yes, you could do it by downloading virtual machine software (VirtualBox, e.g.) and an Android image directly. The Genymotion thing does these two steps for you (it bundles VirtualBox and provides several Android images). I didn't manage to find a good Android image when I was looking before. I'll update my post if I find one. The reason you need to insert Google Account details is to access Google Play.

If your Android device is incompatible with iFruit, iFruit won't be listed when searching Google Play from your device.

Great, so not only have they released it 6 weeks late for a platform I have, but for a version I don't have.

R* you are a bunch of f*cking retards, way to segregate people!

GTA VI will probably only be on PS4, and the Mk.II at that with a specific software version you can only get in Kuala Lumpur and as long as your console is positioned at 42.7 degrees to the moon.

Trying this now...

 

NOTE: if genymotion gives you an error when logging in on the app put your EMAIL instead of your username.

 

Well, my video card doesn't support opengl 2.0 so no go for me.

 

I also had to download the android dev sdk to make the vm machine to work. But as I said it launched,  but I need an opengl 2.0 compatible video card to run it.

I'm a bit confused, I'm running ICS and, according the the Google Store, the app runs on anything from 3.0 upwards... so why's it incompatible with my phone?

 

Waste of f***ing time :)

 

Oldak, nice tip :D

Done everything like you said but for some odd reason, when I launch iFruit it gets to load screen and then it switches off.

Don't use the above...
Use BlueStacks - You don't need an account either.

I have bluestacks and used it for awhile but it doesn't look like it works with bluestacks. I get this Error:

Installation error: INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK

Not too sure if there is a workaround for this but this is what I get when i try to install is from the .apk file.

Rolfstar that actually worked? How did you install it because I think the reason it doesn't work for me is because the bluestacks program isnt compatiable with Ifruit. Even going on google play with my bluestacks synced up it shows bluestacks as a phone not being compatiable with Ifruit.

Yes, I've tried a few Android images with VirtualBox and haven't had success, other than using Genymotion (as above). If I find an Android image that does allow you to successfully install/run iFruit, I'll update my original post.

The iFruit app sometimes shows a black screen for a long time for me (when loading Chop or LSC). But clicking on the screen seems to fix it. Try pressing the "Back" button at the bottom of the Android screen.

Try deleting the device and downloading it again.

"Your graphics drivers seem to be out of date"

According to the Genymotion system requirements:

 

  • OpenGL 2.0 capable graphic card, with an up-to-date driver

You could try updating the driver of your graphics card. If this does not work, your graphics card must be OpenGL incompatible (though the error message suggests you just need to update your drivers).

 

In Windows I think you can do this using Windows Update. Otherwise, search for the model name of your graphics card (you should find this in system information), and you should be able to download new drivers from the manufacturer website.

I can confirm that the BlueStacks app works nicely with iFruit. Thanks for this post and the tip from GTASkunk.
