Wine for Fire OS

Post by hiimverynew » Fri Jul 05, 2019 6:03 pm

There is this game I want to play that can only be accessed on Windows OS. I was wondering if a future update may include compatibility with Fire OS


Thanks

FireOS is a fork of Android, and theoretically can run Android apps that are not tied to Google services. Since the Wine Android packages are not tied to Google services, you should be able to install it. However, FireOS is only available on ARM and Wine does not do CPU emulation, so unless that Windows game is compiled for ARM (which is not likely) you are not going to be able to run it on a FireOS device with just Wine.
