How to port app to actual device

Postby coling » Tue Nov 20, 2007 8:07 pm

Hi,

I'm sure the information is somewhere...
I cannot seem to find the answer to this question:

- What are the actual steps to getting an app to run on my phone?

Have I missed something obvious?

Hello coling,

what kind of app do you mean, a C/C++ one ?
As I'm not familiar and not informed about C/C++ on the Emulator I can only suggest something that sounds good ^^
* to copy a file or a directory recursively to emulator
adb push <source> <destination>
// You probably need to pushs the apk-files generated by the compiler+tools
* to start emulator
./emulator -console
// From my logical view you should be able to select the "runnable" somewhere (if you placed it to the correct place..)


OR do you mean on a real phone :?: (not the emu)
As we are at the very very beginning of porting and there is no device (just from the google-guys) that is actually capable of running Android, there is probably no solution for that, yet.

I'll inform adsouza of that question, he knows a lot (!) better than me...

Hi plusminus,

Thanks for your quick response. Yes, I meant a real phone! My idea of 'testing the waters' is to:

- find an already existing (sample) app - eg 'HelloWorld' written in any language - in its 'executable' form
- download/import/transfer (whatever the word is) the executable plus anything else that's necessary on to my phone
- run it and see what happens
- I am assuming (big assumption?) that my Sprint/Sanyo MM8300 fits the requirements for an end-device

I feel that the ability to do the above initially is vital to any chance of success. Seeing the app 'in action' on its intended platform (ie. the mobile phone) gives feedback that no emulator can do.

I look forward to seeing information about this soon.

Regards
