Intel publishes early build of Android 4.2.2 for x86

The Inquirer reports Intel has released an early build of the x86 version of Android 4.2.2. The release is intended solely for developers, Intel states on its website that the current build doesn't even meet its alpha release requirements, it's buggy and not highly optimized.
Intel does substantial work on Android to enable the mobile operating system to take advantage of its Atom processor and, like Google, it releases distributions under the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).


Intel said that with Android 4.2.2, Android on Intel chips will only boot under UEFI mode and it told developers that it does not support dual booting with legacy BIOS installations, though it will allow dual-boot on devices running Windows 8. The firm said that the command line interface for the installer is "pretty crude", but also said it will be improved within the coming weeks.
At present, it's unknown when Android 4.2.2 will reach production release status for the x86 platform.
