The Android Platform Codelab has been published to take developers from bare metal to a (virtual) device under test in a single page. This document will help new Android operating system engineers quickly learn the tools and processes needed to establish a build environment, sync the repository, build a virtual device image, and load that image onto an Android virtual device (AVD), allowing quick iteration of platform changes.
The codelab walks through:
- Environment setup
- Downloading of code
- Creating a Cuttlefish Android Virtual Device (AVD) image
- Building the OS
- Using Acloud to set up and render the Cuttlefish AVD
- Creating and testing changes
- Uploading, reviewing, and reverting those modifications
