    Default android development using netbooks

    hey guys. i have this assignment to run a hello world android app.
    now the problem is the android app emulator is stuck on the android loading screen.

    i have googled this problem. they said that android development needs a fast computer to execute apps neatly.

    is there a way to run it on netbooks?
    like is there a ram setting sd card setting that can run it faster?

    pls help. thx

    Default Re: android development using netbooks

    Look at using a Genymotion emulator with Oracle's VirtualBox. I am using a Samsung netbook with this combination to execute Android programs from eclipse. The emulator takes about 20 seconds to start.

    One problem I occasionally have is with the adb program. I have a batch file the kills and restarts the adb program. Running that batch file several times usually clears the problem. The batch file:
    @rem  kill/start server
    Set ADBPath=D:\AndroidDevelopment\adt-bundle-windows-x86-20130522\sdk\platform-tools\
    @REM set ADB_TRACE=1
    %ADBPath%adb devices
    %AdBPath%adb.exe kill-server
    %AdBPath%adb start-server
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
