Embedded Android Porting Extending And Customizing-adds
Karim's quest for understanding how things work started at a very young age when he took it upon himself to break open all the radios and cassette players he could lay his hands on in order to "fix" them. You'll also discover how Android differs from its Linux roots. Very few sources are available on the web for the customisation of Android, thus this book is a must have !Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friendWas this review helpful?Yes/No-You may also flag this reviewDisplaying reviews 1-10Back to topPrevious Next Immediate Access - Go Digitalwhat's this?

While everyone was hacking away at Linux, Karim even took a detour to write his own distributed micro-kernel in order to get to the bottom of operating system design and implementation.
