Android Jelly Bean 4.1 Source Code


Android is an open source software stack built for an extensive range of devices with various form factors. The main objectives of Android are to build an open software platform accessible by carriers, developers, and OEMs to create their innovative ideas a reality and to present a successful, real-world product that enhances the mobile experience for users.

Before you can download and create the Android source, you need to make sure your system meets the following system requirements. For the hardware, you need a development workstation with 64-bit environment which is required for Gingerbread (2.3.x) and later versions including the master branch. Older versions can be compiled using 32-bit systems.

You need to have a minimum of 100 GB free hard drive space for a checkout, 150 GB for a single build, and another 200 GB or maybe more for numerous builds. If you utilize ccache, you will require even more space. If you are running Linux on a virtual machine, you need a minimum of 16 GB RAM/swap.

The AOSP or Android Open Source Project master branch is usually developed and tested on Ubuntu LTS or Long Term Support releases. Android is normally built using OS X or Linux operating system but it is also possible to build Android in a virtual machine using unsupported operating systems like Microsoft Windows.
