HTC Hero Skin for the emulator

Postby TheChosen » Tue Aug 04, 2009 4:35 pm

I created a new skin for the emulator. It is the HTC HERO. Since I don't like the emulator window to take so much space on my screen (and also since the HTC Hero does not come with a hardware keyboard) I created this skin wihtout an on-screen keyboard.

You can download it here:

After downloading, you have to un-rar the archive into the following folder <your path to the android sdk>\platforms\android-1.5\skins\

Edit the runtime configuration of the emulator by adding "-skin HTC_HERO" to it.
