How to install Android SDK and play with Android 2.0 in the emulator

Google has released the Android 2.0 SDK as of October 27th, 2009. We know how eager everyone has been to get their hands on Android 2.0, so we have decided to write up instructions so that anyone may download and install the SDK, then create and run an emulator instance.

Note, the emulator is not intended to duplicate any particular device, so treat this more as a look at some of the core new features of Android 2.0 than an emulation of any current or future device. Also, things that require hardware features are not available in the emulator. No multi-touch in here guys (unless you manage to get two mice to work?).

Enough of the talk, let's get down to business.

1)      Download appropriate file for your system from http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html

2)      Extract to desired location

3)      Run “SDK Setup.exe” (or the equivalent for your system)

Launch sdksetup.ext

Launch sdksetup.ext

a.       If you receive an error message stating “Failed to fetch url...” then you will have to force the Setup program to use http in lieu of https.

Got this error? Follow the steps.

Got this error? Follow the steps.

i.      Close the “Refresh Sources” window

ii.      Cancel the “Choose Packages to Install” window

iii.      Select “Settings” from the left side of the “Android SDK and AVD Manager” window

iv.      Check the box labeled “Force https://... sources to be fetched using http://...”

v.      Click “Save and Apply”

vi.      Close and restart the SDK Setup program

4)      Choose the packages that you wish install

Select only the packages you need.

Select only the packages you need.

a.       If you are only interested in trying out the Android 2.0 Emulator

i.      Reject everything except “SDK Platform Android 2.0. API 5, revision 1” by selecting each item then selecting the Reject option

b.      If you plan to develop Android applications and Games, you may wish to Accept All

c.       Click “Install Selected”

5)      Allow the selected packages to download and install then close the “Installing Archives” window

6)      Create a new Android Virtual Device (AVD)

These are the settings to emulate the Moto Droid.

These are the settings to emulate the Moto Droid.

a.       Select “Virtual Devices” from the left side of the “Android SDK and AVD Manager” window

i.      Click “New”

ii.      Enter a Name

iii.      Choose a Target

iv.      Enter a size for the emulated SD Card

v.      Choose a Skin

1.      To emulate current hardware such as the G1, MyTouch 3G, Hero, etc…

a.       Leave the default value

2.      To emulate the Motorola Droid

a.       Choose WVGA 854

3.      To emulate other devices

a.       Choose anything else

vi.      Click “Create AVD”

7)      Start your newly created Virtual Device

A successfully created AVD.

A successfully created AVD.

a.       Choose the Virtual Device from the list

b.      Click “Start...”

c.       Click “Launch”

Just click launch.

Just click launch.

8)      Allow copious time for Emulator to start up

First startup will take a few minutes.

First startup will take a few minutes.

9)      Enjoy!

    On my to do list for tonight. Thanks Justin!

    • Neo

      I m new to sdk and i would like to try it on,but what kind of data download should occur.
      My provider has a data cap and is the whole setup going to be more than 300 mb?

  • rush

    are there instructions for the mac? This unfortunately does not help us out at all…

    • http://www.droidweb.com Maliek Mcknight

      You’ve probably figured everything out by now, but I wrote a tutorial on how to install the 2.0 SDK on a mac. See it here: http://www.blog.droidweb.com/?p=1132

  • http://www.nexsoftware.net nEx.Software

    Please forgive me, I made the assumption that Google also provided a similar installer for Mac. According to the Mac SDK download you start the SDK Manager by running /tools/android program. I do not have a Mac so cannot tell if there is a similar GUIDE to the SDK Manager. If any has a Mac and can provide those instructions, we would greatly appreciate it.

  • carig

    awesome! it runs really slow on my computer and for some reason it has a normal keyboard but the text prediction is in chinese, odd

    but still i’m excited to try everything out, go android!

    • http://textpredictioninchinese xnsn

      For me the text prediction was by default in chinese too. Did you manage to switch this to English?
      Using Settings -> Keyboard and Language I was able to switch it by removing the chinese and japanese keyboards, but after closing the emulator and restarting it, text prediction reverted back to chinese.

  • VanVlack

    Anybody else have very slow downloads with the SDK updater. It says its going 5 KiB/s and going to take 250 min!!!!

    • Marco

      No, it’s really fast here with around 9 kB/sec and 115 minutes left…

      • http://Website D-Carlo

        I’m getting 37kb/s and about 37 mins remaining. And I have DSL! plus my laptop is connected wirelessly with 4 bars of strength on a 802.11G connection, I don’t know how but whatever! lol

        • http://Website Scott

          I’m getting 126 KiB/s 8min. I’m using the wifi tether and connecting through my droid. Verizon is a pretty good network.

          • http://Website Bas

            I got 800 KiB/s :P

    • http://www.unitedswe.com/ Tim Jowers

      Yes. I’ve never seen it slow before but almost always work on Linux. Yesterday it was slow on my work laptop on a public LAN (20KiB/s) so I figured I try again when I got home. But now its started even worse: 5KiB/s; but plataued around 21KiB/s. Maybe its something with their Windows images? Or maybe its the darn McCrappee virus software this company runs. I’ve done work for them for 15 months and know you need to re-image their laptops every 4-6 months due to the McCrappeee making things slower and slower and slower over time. But, this is a newly imaged laptop; so, maybe its just Google’s problem.

  • Brombomb

    For those new to the Emulator. You can “rotate” the screen by pressing Shift + F12. That way you can play/test in landscape mode.

    • Bob

      Also 7 on the num pad if you have one!

    • http://www.droidlive.com Jona

      You mean Ctrl + F12

  • Frank

    How do I change the text input from Japanese to English US?


      Frank.. Go to settings, then go down to language & keyboard click it, then unselect the japanese keyboards. Hope that helped!

  • http://www.theg1appsblog.com Jeremiah Hoyet

    Thanks for the tip, Justin. I’m going to play around with it right now! :]

  • Bob

    Instructions for Mac and Linux are similar but you need to start ./android from the tools folder.

    Side note, settings in Android SDK and AVD Manager while running Ubuntu wont stick, as you can check the box labeled “Force https://… sources to be fetched using http://…” all you want but you can not “Save and Apply” it just sits there. There are reports of some people having the same issue.

    As per Google Dev:
    It looks like it fails somehow to create the file containing the
    settings, but I don’t know why (it works fine here).

    The file is ~/.android/androidtool.cfg

    try to create it manually and add one line to it:

    we’ll try to figure out why it fails.

    • http://www.nexsoftware.net nEx.Software

      Thanks Bob for the details regarding Mac and Linux installation.

    • Ramon

      I found a way around this. I clicked the Save & Apply..then press enter on the keyboard….after that it went through.

      • gregers

        Pressing Enter on the keyboard worked for me as well. Manually editing ~/.android/androidtool.cfg did not. Thanks for the tip :)

        • Thiago Souza

          For me worked both ways. It looks like there is a bug that you need to press Enter on buttons. This issue happens at the package installation too…

  • http://www.google.com James

    Thanks for the great post! Does anyone know a way to make this Landscape mode?

    • http://www.nexsoftware.net Justin Shapcott

      From several comments up…

      For those new to the Emulator. You can “rotate” the screen by pressing Shift + F12. That way you can play/test in landscape mode.

      Or 7 on number pad.

    • http://www requerido

      it is CTRL+F12 not Shift+F12

  • http://www.droidlive.com Jona

    In my case I see only the screen and no skin around it… any clues why this happens? Also the screen for the Droid phone looks really long and thin… Anyone have ideas of the correct settings to simulate the phone?

    What are the options for Skin to simulate to scale the Droid phone?
    Skin: WVGA854 480×854
    Desity: ?
    And scale display to real device settings?
    Screen size: 3.7 (in)?
    Monitor dpi: ??

  • Brian

    Guys, does the emulator use Bridged or NAT-ed networking when loaded on my computer? I’d like to test setup networked Exchange ActiveSync to my Exchange Server. Also, can someone point out where I can configure a client certificate, and VPN connection using L2TP? Thanks!

  • Michael R.

    I had an issue with Ubuntu 9.10 and mouse button clicks in eclipse not sticking (had to use keys). Apparently its an eclipse issue. A link to information and workaround is here. I wonder if that is what you are experiencing with your link issue not sticking.


    I am having a problem however with getting AVD to reasonably run. I tried creating the exact same AVD as in this post and I still have the same problem. I am going through the simple hello world app to verify my setup. However the AVD is running extremely slow. Then it will run hello world and I’ll get an error message in a box:


    Application Email (in process com.android.email) is not responding”
    With an option to Force close or Wait.

    Sometimes I’ll get:

    “Application Messaging (in process com.android.mms) is not responding”

  • http://www.markvader.com markvader

    Despite try a number of times with different install paths each time, I had an issue when installing using the package manager,

    “Installing SDK Platform Android 2.0, API 5, revision 1 Failed to rename directory …”

    similar to the one posted on the issue tracker here

    I disabled norton antivirus and the install went fine.

    Thanks for the straight forward tutorial, wasnt quite sure about upgrading from the 1.5 sdk


    • http://Failedtorenamedirectory(markvander) Mauricio

      Had thesame problem – “Failed to rename directory …”

      I was updating in a Windows “protected” directory – that requires admin to approve the creation or renaming of directiries (Like in “Program Files”)

      Just instal the SDK in a “non protected” directory and does the trick”!

      Great tutorial!

  • http://jimshowalter.blogspot.com Jim Showalter

    It’s definitely antivirus. Had the same problem until I shut off Kaspersky.

    There’s a thread about it: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/78be72a0cb5d40f4/8dfe6541c3ebfc25.

    • http://www.bankofamerica.com Tim Jowers

      Unfo, corporate laptops will not allow you to turn off the AV.

  • Andrés

    I tried installing the SDK Setup.exe on Windows 7 (x86_64) but it complains about the ANDROID_SWT environment variable. I already set it to point to the x86_64 swt.jar but it refuses to work.

    Any ideas?


  • Rob

    No matter what I do I keep getting the ““Installing SDK Platform Android 2.0, API 5, revision 1 Failed to rename directory …”” error as well. I am running XP pro and AVG free edition which you cannot disable.

    Oddly enough, this worked just fine on Windows 7 with AVG Free edition.

    I would love to know how I can get this to install on my work PC!

    • carig

      I wonder if you’ll still check back and read this, anyways i was having the same problem on my computer running Vista and AVG free

      What i ended up doing was going to the folder that it mentions at the end of that “Failed to rename directory…” (the folder was called PlatformPackage.new01) and going to its properties then unchecking the “read only” box

      I don’t know if you tried that or if you were actually having a different problem but it said it installed and seems to be working fine

  • dusan7

    Thank you. Very nice guide

  • David

    When I try to run SDK Setup.exe, something flashes on my screen for a split second and nothing else happens. I disabled my anti-virus protection before running it. Did anyone else run into this?

    • http://Website Another David

      I had the same problem until I installed the latest Java. Now I can’t get an emulator to start./launch.

      I keep getting:

      emulator: ERROR: unknown virtual device name: ‘SecondAVD’
      emulator: could not find virtual device named ‘SecondAVD’

  • David

    I should be more specific…I’m running on Win XP SP3.

  • kris

    ok i have never been able to get this or previous versions to work.. i would click on setup and the screen would dissapear after a second.. what am i not doing or doing wrong?

    • Peter Bosko

      I had same problem. The reason was that I had multiple JVM’s installed on my machine. JVM v1.4.2 is not enough to run the setup. I installed new Java on my computer and removed from path system variable paths to old JVMs.

      • Jason

        Thank you! I was also seeing the quick blank console window when trying to execute the setup installer. I have a new install of Windows 7, and didn’t have Java installed. Now that I have the latest Java installed, the setup is working.

    • Carmen

      Kris, were you able to get it running? If so, what worked. I am having the same problem.


      • http://Website Kris

        yea, I finally figured it out. I played around with it for awhile but I dont think it was worth all that hassle

  • Kyle

    @ Kris & David
    I was having this same issue. It turned out that my unzip util didn’t create the /platforms and the /add-ons directory where I unzipped the sdk. Make sure these folders exist otherwise you can’t start the sdk setup.exe

    • Carmen

      Hey Kyle!
      Thanks for the tip. I used a different extractor and viola, there were the missing files.


  • kris

    @kyle there not so how would We go about doing that?

  • Kyle

    just create empty dirs with those names

      I also faced “Error loading preferences” console window, but just a brief moment. And then the device show up but always blank.
      Then… I opened Android SDK manager, go to virtual devices, select the only AVD that’s there. And then Delete…
      After that I clicked new and create a new AVD.
      The “Error Loading Preferences” window still appear briefly, but then the Emulator showed up with the “android _” text. And then the glowing “Android” showed up, and after about one minute, the emulator is up and running well.
      Hope this helps someone. :D

    I installed the SDK 2.1 currently on the android.com web site, but Windows 7 hangs after several windows start freezing after I do a “Refresh” on the SDK Manager GUI or attempt to install.
    I noticed the drive the SDK manager sits on (G drive) loses status while the others still show how much free disk space they have. The event logs weren’t much use, since I don’t know I should be looking for.

    I installed Eclipse and the latest Java as indicated on the web site. Are there any troubleshooting tips someone can offer? I hate to install Ubuntu Linux on my server, but I just might (I have it on my laptop – I suppose I could try installing the SDK on my laptop… under Ubuntu, since I am also running Windows 7 Professional on it and wouldn’t expect different results, however, it could help troubleshooting, since it would confirm that there is or there is no difference. I was suspecting the ATI graphics card since the event log had plenty of errors pointing to it.).

    I tried a lot but I can’t fix it.
    The folder where the ADVs are saved is C:\users\Bas\Contacts\.android\adv
    Can anybody help?

    I appreciate your wordpress web template, where do you down load it through?

    Your web site does not render properly on my apple iphone – you may wanna try and repair that

    Music started playing when I opened up this web page, so annoying!

    I think one of your adverts caused my browser to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.

    I just added this site to my feed reader, great stuff. Cannot get enough!

    This will be a great web page, could you be involved in doing an interview regarding just how you designed it? If so e-mail me!

    Thank you, I have been hunting for info about this topic for ages and yours is the best I have located so far.

      I have solve this problem.
      If you have it, you need to replace your Android folder to C:\PROGRA~2\ folder. This folder you have to create. Just create folder named “Progra~2″ at disc C:\ and paste “Android” folder into it. It works for me!

      My best guess is that a machine was used to translate and the above garbled message is the result.

    I have been able to download and install all of it successfully without any issues (thank goodness).

    Anyway, when i get to the point where I need to make a new AVD, it does not have a target at all.
    Theres the drop down box, and it keeps telling me that in order to make a new one, there has to be a target selected, but… there isnt anything to select.

    If anyone has any ideas, be most appreciated, thanks in advance.

    hi, I have downloaded everything, eclipse, java and Android sdk. But in Eclipse, when i open “Window”, AVD manager and SDK manager are not combined.
    When i try to create an AVD, i cannot designate a target. Is it because AVD and SDK are not combined? How can i rectify that?
    Thank you.
