Publisher Comments:

Looking to port Android to other platforms such as embedded devices? This hands-on book shows you how Android works and how you can adapt it to fit your needs. Youll delve into Androids architecture and learn how to navigate its source code, modify its various components, and create your own version of Android for your particular device. Youll also discover how Android differs from its Linux roots.

If youre experienced with embedded systems development and have a good handle on Linux, this book helps you mold Android to hardware platforms other than mobile devices.

  • Learn about Androids development model and the hardware you need to run it
  • Get a quick primer on Android internals, including the Linux kernel and Dalvik virtual machine
  • Set up and explore the AOSP without hardware, using a functional emulator image
  • Understand Androids non-recursive build system, and learn how to make your own modifications
  • Use evaluation boards to prototype your embedded Android system
  • Examine the native user-space, including the root filesystem layout, the adb tool, and Androids command line
  • Discover how to interact with—and customize—the Android Framework

Synopsis:

Embedded Android is for Developers wanting to create embedded systems based on Android and for those wanting to port Android to new hardware, or creating a custom development environment. Hackers and moders will also find this an indispensible guide to how Android works.

About the Author

Karim Yaghmour is the founder and president of Opersys, a company providing expertise and courses on the use of open source and free software in embedded systems, and Kryptiva, a a provider of email security services. Being himself an active member of the open source and free software community, Karim has firmly established Opersys's services around the core values of knowledge sharing and technical quality promoted by this community. As part of his community involvement, Karim is the maintainer of the Linux Trace Toolkit and the author of a series of white-papers that led to the implementation of the Adeos nanokernel, which allows multiple operating systems to exist side-by-side.

Karim's quest for understanding how things work started at a very young age when he took it upon himself to break open all the radios and cassette players he could lay his hands on in order to "fix" them. Very early, he developed a keen interest in operating system internals and embedded systems. He now holds a B.Eng. and an M.A.Sc. from the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal. While everyone was hacking away at Linux, Karim even took a detour to write his own distributed micro-kernel in order to get to the bottom of operating system design and implementation. When not working on software, Karim indulges in his passion for history, philosophy, sociology, and humanities in general. He's especially addicted to essays and novels by Umberto Eco and Gerald Messadie.
