Android Platform Partial Build


Android Platform Partial Build

1. Modify default application
For example, AlarmClock.
Change app_label to “Alarm Clock Test” in packages/apps/Alarmclock/res/values/strings.xml

2.$. build/

3.$lunch 1
Generic Or your target

4.$mmm packages/apps/AlarmClock

5.$make snod
It will build system.img quickly.

You can see Alarm Clock label has changed to “Alarm Clock Test“. I used my name.


or if you want your system.img in your sdk.
6.1. $cp out/target/product/generic/system.img out/host/YOUR_OS/sdk/YOUR_SDK_PATH/tools/lib/images/

6.2. $out/host/YOUR_OS/sdk/YOUR_SDK_PATH/tools/emulator -wipe-data

Note.“make snod” would not check dependences.
If you change some code in the framework, then “make clean”.
