Downloading Android source as zip

Posted / Публикувана 2012-01-27 in category / в категория: Android

I needed the source of Anroid Froyo in order to be able to debug it in Eclipse. On the official download page there  is a description how to download it under Linux (or cygwin) but at the time I did not had either so I tried to find plain, simple, good old zip that contains the entire source but it took me quite some time googling in order to find a site that provides such downloads. In order to save you from wasting time here it is:

http://grepcode.com/project/repository.grepcode.com/java/ext/com.google.android/android/

If you need the source in order to debug it in Eclipse: download appropriate JAR (for example android-2.2_r1.1-sources.jar) , open it with zip and extract it in <android-sdk-dir>\platforms\<android-version>\sources (you may need to create "sources" subdir). Restart Eclipse and debug should work.
