TurnKey Linux Virtual Appliance Library

Android SDK

farrow.nick's picture



I have modified Turnkey Core to have android SDK for anyone who wants to start programming in android immediately. Also since the android drivers in windows don't work at all on most phones this is a quick way to view the logcat in the adb shell.

Would anyone want this as a Turnkey destro?

Why not!?

Nice work. I personally don't have a use for it (I'm not that techy...) but surely others might!?

Do you create a TKLPatch? If so perhaps put it up on GitHub (and post the link) or even just tar.gz it up and attach here (you'll need to edit your OP as files can only be attached to first post of a thread).

Not sure how to put it up here but here is the links for the download.

Jeremy can you give me some info on how to create a TKLPatch?

Nice work Nick! :)

Creating a patch is a little work but not too much. It's basically just an install script and/or overlay files that adjust an ISO to be a new appliance. Have a read of the docs here: http://www.turnkeylinux.org/docs/tklpatch

Any specific questions please ask and hopefully I'll be able to answer! :)

Just checked it worked for me. I used winrar to unrar the files. If you still are having problems let me know.

Also tried to repair the archive, but without suscess.

VM for Cyanogenmod ?

Would it make sense to have a virtual machine with Cyanogenmod (Android) ?

VM for Cyanogenmod

Hello Klausz,

i'm not familiar with Android at all. Still use a old mobile, no smartphone.

For me it would make sens, as long i can use one of the Android apps without google chrome installed or similar.
