8.2.1 Building or downloading Android

To build Android, follow the instructions from the Linaro website. ARM recommends that you use the latest Android source code and documentation.

For example, see https://releases.linaro.org/android/reference-lcr/fvp.

Alternatively, to download a pre-built Android binary image from Linaro, see the instructions at https://community.arm.com/docs/DOC-10831.


Before building, follow the README file to generate the libnwhal.so file, which serves GGA to collect data from the Android native window handle objects.

The path of the README file is: $PVLIB_HOME/GGA/HAL/readme.txt.
