VMOS is a virtual machine app on Android, that can run another Android OS as the guest operating system. Users can optionally run the guest Android VM as a rooted Android OS. The VMOS guest Android operating system has access to the Google Play Store and other Google apps. The app itself when downloaded is the base virtualization core, however the Android operating system image for the guest OS is downloaded when the app is first opened up. Being that the guest operating system is in a virtualized environment, any configurations like a rooted android kernel on the guest, would not affect the host Android operating system or device. Due to this, via VMOS allows running a rooted Android operating system on the phone via virtualization without the device actually being rooted, and thus no issues with warranty or with the cellular carrier/provider. Being a virtual machine, the guest Android operating system has a separate disk image, and thus if a virus or other threat does something malicious in the guest operating system, it will not affect the host device and the host operating system.
