The improved virtualization support of Android 13 allows you to run Windows 11
According to kdrag0n in the Android 13 bootloader and firmware for the Tensor platform, Google added a new capability that would allow it to boot multiple Linux distributions and run them at almost native speed.
However it is good to know that at this stage direct KVM access on Android 13 requires root unless writing a VM management app and requiring special permission to run a native service in a MicroDroid VM.
This isn’t the first time Windows 11 ARM has run on Android smartphones, as last month a community called the Renegade Project brought Windows 10 ARM and Windows 11 ARM to devices with Snapdragon 845 SoCs.
