Here are some development tools useful for working with Android
- Fastboot - Android Fastboot is a tool to boot and manipulate the partitions on an Android development phone.
- toolchains -
- logging system -
- Emulator - See http://developer.android.com/guide/developing/tools/emulator.html
The emulator is a version of QEMU, which mimics the instruction set of an ARM processor, and the hardware that one might find on a mobile phone. The emulator runs on an x86 system, but executes an ARM linux kernel and programs. The flow of control is:
- application ->
- dalvik VM ->
- C/C++ libraries ->
- ARM linux kernel ->
- emulated instructions and hardware (QEMU)->
- C libraries->
- x86 kernel ->
- real hardware
