Running an Android emulator on your computer is pretty simple.
You probably need to make sure you have JDK first.
First off, download the Android SDK from
|Select at least: |
Android SDK Tools
an Android Version
its SDK Platform
& its ARM EABI System Image
Then simply extract it
(check the compression quick guide)
Now, from a terminal, cd into the android folder and into the tools directory and run "android":
- cd <android folder>/tools/
Choose an Android version and install its packages.
When done, you'll need to create an Android Virtual Device.
- ./android list
Note the id you want (it might probably be "1" at this point).
- ./android create avd -n <choose-a-name-here> -t <target-id>
It will ask if you want to create a custom hardware profile. Unless you want to, you may choose the default [no].
Now you've created an AVD.
If you want to tweak some things like give it some space to use as an SD card for apps, run:
- ./android avd
Now, to run your AVD, run:
- ./emulator -avd <your-avd-name>
And that's it; you now have an Android emulator!
