Android porting

After this 5 day course you will be able to port Android to new hardware, to change default boot-up animations, logo's and background, to know how to optimal work with the Android source code for custimisation and branding. You will get direct hands-on experience with your own demo board and VM interface, learn how to avoid pitfalls and get up and running quickly. We look at the Android Architecture, specifics of the Android Linux kernel and Intellectual Property issues.

In an interactive manner, you will be able to get direct feedback. At the end of this course, you will be ready to port Android to new hardware and integrate it into embedded applications.

For this course, all participants will receive an Android based device so they can continue their projects after the course.


No public sessions are currently scheduled. We will be pleased to set up an on-site course or to schedule an extra public session (in case of a sufficient number of candidates). Interested? Please contact ABIS.
