Here are some development tools useful for working with Android

Android SDK


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
