I know that the standard ARM emulator that comes with Android is pretty slow the first time it is started-up. I heard that I could setup inside a VirtualBox an Android image.
I have followed the following instructions:

However, when typing the command:

adb connect
unable to connect

Also, I found an Android 4.1 image that loads-up and runs great in the Virtual Box but I am unable to create a hard drive configuration under the Settings - Storage options.
The Android 2.3.3 image freezes at the point where it needs to install the linux kernal.

Suggestions as to what could be the problem ?
