I would add the option to install Ubuntu in a VM. Both VMWare player and VirtualBox are free and well supported. This way one can actually create some pre-packaged images with which one can start development right away. In fact I've already made two of them a year ago (one for Froyo and one for Gingerbread):
One might also make on for ICS (for that Ubuntu 12.04 is also good, and since VMWare Player is free one could use that instead of VirtualBox, as VMWP has more user-friendly features)
Good Beginners Guide. Thank you.
But 90% of it can also be found here:
This is what i used to build android for the pandaboard a few weeks ago.
And then I have a few questions.
Why do you compile git when you can also download it from apt-sources? Imho this is just confusing for beginners.
Where do you use git in your tutorial?
Didn't you forget lunch and make at the very end of your tutorial?
". build/envsetup.sh" only sets up the environment, imho
