This application implements a mostly-complete X11 server, running natively in Android. It allows X Window System applications to be run remotely and displayed on an Android device with internet access.

Note that this application does not come with a window manager. However, it is possible to run a window manager remotely, which is fiddly but seems to work.

This is still a beta release, so feel free to report any bugs you find, or, better yet, fix them yourself. Yes, it's open source, hosted at http://code.google.com/p/android-xserver/

    It worked well to display my X application in my Android device.. But I cant access the application. For eg. I cant click a button that I designed in my application. Any solutions for this ?????
    I can get access for xeyes though.. weird !!!!

    but I've not actually got it to work with any consistency so far.

    I'm sort of baffled by all the praise. No apps I use display properly (maybe because I'm using a tablet, not a phone?) Gedit initially displays alright, but then menus and their respective text begin to disappear. I tried launching Nicotine (GTK-based SoulSeek client) and it was not centered on the screen and, like with Gedit, text was missing from many menus. I'm using CM9 on an HP Touchpad; t
