I can build a rpm. but I can't share it, the license no permit it...

Do you want make a rpm?

well, write line by line the next:

Install dependencies for build it..

dnf -y install @development-tools 
dnf -y install binutils rpm-build fedora-packager chrpath

download and run my script for build the rpm (NO root) :)

wget -c

chmod a+x genymotion-rpm


Now the rpm is in your home, install :)

dnf install $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/$(uname -m)/genymotion*.rpm

Install virtualbox

You can install the proprietary Oracle. Guide here.

Go here and download the appropriate file for your architecture. It's a generic Linux .bin file, so you can use it also on Fedora systems.

Install Virtualization group:

sudo dnf groupinstall "Virtualization"

Install VirtualBox and all dependencies (From or from RPMfusion free and nonfree repositories). In the last case, type this:

sudo dnf install VirtualBox kernel-devel gstreamer-plugins-base libpng12

Install libjpeg8 from RPM and libdouble-conversion from RPMfind. After that, do this:

cd /home/user/Downloads
sudo mv genymotion-2.6.0-ubuntu15_x64.bin /opt ;#assuming it's genymotion-2.6.0-ubuntu15_x64.bin
cd /opt
sudo chmod +x genymotion-2.6.0-ubuntu15_x64.bin ;#make the bin executable
sudo ./genymotion-2.6.0-ubuntu15_x64.bin ;#install for all users - without 'sudo' install only for current user

And, finally, start GenyMotion with:

cd genymobile/genymotion/

Is not free (as freedom) software , You got instructions on their website, but we only have debs packages , you got dpkg on Fedora, so may dpkg -i DEB_PACKAGE will work I don't know , I think I can't help you further
