Hello, in this post I will explain how to setup an Android environment for developing-fun-curiosity-whateveryouwant at Mac OS X, with is quite VERY simple. This guide should work on the same in Windows and Linux but I am not sure.
After that you need to open the ‘tools’ executable (from the console) — this is only for OS X or Linux (not sure how at Windows). Then you get a window titled ‘Android SDK and AVD Manager‘.
Go to ‘Available packages’ to select the Android environment you will be using at Android Repository (Froyo 2.2, Gingerbread 2.3.3, Honeycomb 3.2, w/e). At this very same tab you can also install (at Third party Add-Ons) the Google APIs alike Maps and Admob.
Now that you downloaded the environment that you desire, go to ‘Virtual Devices‘ tab, click on “New” button and proceed to assign a name to the device, which OS you will use, CPU/ABI, etc… then “Create AVD“. Now you are done! Just click Start while you have the desired device selected with blue .
Enjoy! — Today is the SuperHappyDevHouse at Xalapa, Mexico. We will be here about 12 hours of programming/learning/geek stuff – I am doing guides for this site, this is the first one. More to come!.
