All-in-one Container

The most convenient way to run the MobileInsight on the desktops is to use our all-in-one container. This package automates the MobileInsight installation and configuration. It has been tested on macOS 10.15/10.12/10.11 Windows 7/10 (64bit), and Ubuntu 20.04/18.04/16.04.


In the installation, make sure the Internet connection is always available to your desktop.

  1. Install Virtualbox and Vagrant;

  2. Download the MobileInsight’s vagrant script here. After unpacking it, you will find a script called Vagrantfile;

  3. Create a new folder (e.g., MI_FOLDER), and copy Vagrantfile to it (DO NOT rename the script);

  4. In terminal (or console on Windows), run the following commands (It may take 30min or longer, depending on the Internet speed):

    cd MI_FOLDER
    vagrant destroy # Run it only if you have installed container before
    vagrant up
  5. Once it is done, you can login to the container with the following command:

    vagrant ssh

The MobileInsight source codes are now located in /home/vagrant/mi-dev.
