We wrote Android on x86: an Introduction to Optimizing for Intel® Architecture to provide a one-stop, detailed resource for the topic’s best practices and procedures. The book encompasses the installation issues, hardware optimization issues, software requirements, programming tasks, and performance optimizations that emerge when you consider programming for x86-based Android devices. Having worked on related projects ourselves, we committed to collecting our experience and information into one book which could be used as a guide through any project’s specific requirements. We dove into fine-tuned optimizations, native code adjustments, hardware acceleration, and advanced profiling of multimedia applications.


The book is not dedicated solely to code, although you’ll find plenty of code samples and case studies inside. Instead, we’ve filled Android on x86 with the information you need in order to take advantage of the x86 architectures. We will guide you through installing the Android Software Development Kit for Intel Architectures, help you understand the differences and similarities between the processors available for commercial Android devices, teach you to create and port applications, debug existing x86 applications, offer solutions for NDK and C++ optimizations, and introduce the Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager. The information we’ve pulled together provides the most useful help for getting your development job done quickly and well.


Who Is This Book For?

This book is aimed at two general categories of people: developers and those interested in choosing Android x86 as a platform for their applications. With this in mind, the beginning chapters focus on much more high-level, nontechnical questions, so that people from all technical backgrounds can make informed choices. The later chapters focus heavily on the developers’ side of the world, starting with a basic foundation of microprocessor architectures and Android development environments and then building to very advanced, performance-focused content. Our goal is to reach the entire spectrum of people who are interested in Android on x86, and to do our best at getting you the answers you need.


We really hope you enjoy the book. We certainly have enjoyed exploring this topic, and look forward to seeing what will happen in this rapidly-expanding field in the upcoming years. We would also like to note that while we may know a thing or two about Android, we recognize that we are certainly not the most knowledgeable about everything. Feel free to challenge any information that you find in this book – we encourage you to use outside resources and really involve yourself in the communities that surround this technology!
