Eclipse, Android, AVD, ADT

To develop you need:

  1. Java JDK
  2. Android SDK
  3. Eclipse
  4. Andriod ADT

Also don’t forget to add Environment variable:

  1. name = ANDROID
    value = your_path_to_android_sdk\tools
  2. name = JAVA_HOME
    value = c:\program files\java\jdk
  3. add to Path variable %JAVA_HOME%\bin and %ANDROID% strings

Install ADT:

  1. Eclipse menu – Help – Install new software – Add
  2. Location field =
  3. Check on all packages

Set path to Android SDK in Eclipse

  1. Eclipse menu – Window – Preferences
  2. Select Android in left panel
  3. SDK Location field = your_path_to_android_sdk

If you haven’t Android Virtual Device Manager in Window menu, you have to go Window – Customize Perspective – Command Groups Availability page and check on Android SDK and AVD Manager.

In order to enable Developer options in Samsung Galaxy S3 you’ve to go Settings – More – About device. You will see Build number, then click click click click on it. Really, it works. Developer options will appear.

If you changed your Home dir in Windows, then perhaps you’ll have to create symlink:

mklink /J C:\Users\your_user\.android your_path_to_new_dir

(e.g. mklink /J C:\Users\arvifox\.android d:\arvifox\.android)
