Installation and Updating
So here we gonna learn ways of installing GearLock in your desired android-x86 system. There are several ways of doing so, you just need to pay some attention and read everything properly to avoid errors.
Get the latest GearLock installer binary
Simply head over to this link and click on Download button.
Place the binary anywhere inside android filesystem
In this guide we will copy
gearlock installer-binary to either Main Storage or Internal Storage or /sdcard from a file manager.
I'm using FX File Explorer for moving
gearlock installer-binary to Main Storage (aka the Internal Storage) from my Downloads folder.
Switch to command terminal / console
Now press either
Alt + F1 or
fn + Alt + F1 for switching to a command terminal.
If the buttons are not working as suggested above then install Termoneplus terminal emulator and open it.
Run the installer binary
Once you're in a black terminal prompt, type in the following and press Enter key after each line.
su cp /sdcard/gearlock /data cd /data chmod 777 gearlock ./gearlock
Select your operating-system partition in the installer
So, at this stage you should have the installer-binary running. I have my android-x86 operating system installed inside the 7th partition called Android. Enter the partition number of your android-x86 installation.
