I'm very sorry, because of my limited English skills, so I use the Google translation.
I want to install Android system on the vbox, but later found the official website of the vbox will produce conflict.
So I need to modify the source code, make a green version of vbox, I changed the source code in all the UUID, and a number of additional programs ...
In order not to conflict with the VBOX official website, and now I need to modify VMMR0.R0, VMMGC.GC these documents, so that they generate a different file name, ask I need to change source code or mmk where?

How did you install Android? Chance is that there is already a VirtualBox install part of an Android emulator. What are you using here? Might be worth talking to the supplier of the Android emulator if that's forcing you to run an old version of VirtualBox or if the included VirtualBox version is crippled in some way.

Could you first explain why you need to rename those files? What do you want to achieve?

For me the term "green version" is meaningless. Not commonly used in English, so I'm very unsure about your goal.

Offshoot? Branch? I can see that being mistranslated along these lines. English translation: fork.

If this is about forking I really need convincing arguments for a worthy cause. Otherwise I am not motivated to help.

That's not what Klaus meant by a "convincing argument". If you want to clone VirtualBox for your own purposes, you will have to do that without Oracle's help. But if you can explain why you want to do that in the first place (i.e. why the official VirtualBox releases aren't good enough for you), that could lead to a useful discussion.

You cannot run two different versions of Vbox on the same machine. Just renaming a few files is not enough.

This is getting more and more confusing. If you already implemented that several VirtualBox version can run on one system, where's the problem? Or did the translation go wrong and you want to do this? Again, it's not something which seems to provide value for the VirtualBox dev team. Running several virtualizers is only making everything less efficient.

Why can't the Android emulator's VirtualBox core be used for running regular VMs? Would only make sense if it has modifications which makes it unusable for normal VMs - which raises the question what those modifications are, why they can't be done in a "clean" way (e.g. using an extension pack and an appropriate VM config, or by contributing changes), and ultimately whether the final result is covered by the GPLv2 license.

Is such that we need to do VBOX Android simulator, using the official version 4.3, but later found that some customers machines equipped with our simulator, they also installed a new version of the official website of VBOX, resulting in us abnormal android simulator. So I made some changes to the source code, so that an official with the new version of the VBOX area of our simulator with separate, but the question is, do we unload, because you want to close VBOX process, and this process name the official with the new version of the same, lead us to the official VBOX closed. At the same time the driver of impact loading as well, because when uninstalling service should close the driver, because the same service name, not shut down, so this is the reason I want to modify the drive name and the process name and symbol of the link
