Hi all,

I got Ubuntu running on my Asus Transformer via the chroot method. Now, I installed Eclipse and wanted to start developing my Android Apps on the tablet.
Problem is the Android SDK tools are compiled for x86.

Does anybody know how to compile them for ARM or maybe even have a download link?
It'd be sooo cool to be able to dev on the Transfomer as it has this awesome physical keyboard dock!

Any ideas are highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Chris

I also run a chroot (debian squeeze) on my optimus v. you're lucky to have a keyboard port! I'm stuck with a stupid touch-keyboard without programmer keys.

I have looked for an ARM-based SDK myself as well, with no success.

some of the binaries would be useless on-device without usb-otg host mode, like adb and fastboot, but on capable devices those are needed too.
you already have an ARM-gcc toolchain too, so that piece is unnecessary as well.

maybe going through the SDK manually you could find exactly what parts are binaries to see about finding specific replacements compiled for ARM, or at least source for them.
the rest of the SDK should be portable without mods, unless something's so picky it requires sun-java instead of open-java.
keep us posted!
