PostHeaderIcon How to emulate Android GingerBread on your PC?

This post describes how to install and play with a emulator of GingerBread (Android 2.3)  device on your desktop (or laptop) computer:

  • go to this page, download Android SDK related to your system.
  • unzip / install it, let’s say in $android-sdk-home
  • launch Android SDK Manager (with $android-sdk-home\SDK Manager.exe under Windows, $android-sdk-home/android on other systems)
  • on the left panel, select Available Packages, and select Android Repository packages you would like to install, and possibly other third party add-ons.
  • go to Virtual Devices >
    • New >
    • give a name, for instance “GingerBread” >
    • Target “Android 2.3.3…” >
    • SD Car Size: 2MiB >
    • leave other options >
    • Create AVD
  • wait a little…
  • still in Virtual Devices panel, select the AVD you have just created (called hereGingerBread) > Start
  • wait… a lot
  • enjoy!

EDIT: I could not resist and I have installed HoneyComb, too 😉
