Setting your AVD (Android Virtual Device)

To have optimal AVD on your desktop, having right amount of RAM size and SD card is important. You can also check “Snapshot: Enabled” to have eclipse build AVD only once in the beginning.

Using your android development mode instead of AVD

  1. Install the driver for your android phone you’d like to use from OEM USB Drivers
    (e.g. Samsung site will look something like this once you type in your device “Galaxy Notes”)
  2. Enable USB debugging on your phone
    (This is typically done through Settings -> “Developer Options”)
  3. Connect your phone to your computer via USB
    (If it still causes problem, go to Run As -> Run Configuration, then on the Run Configuration choose on the Manual)
