I've made this VM to let you develop android products easily, it's for developing Roms/Kernels & Apps. Using this VM is a good way to start if you don't know linux so well. it includes android sdk, eclipse, java and all the needed packages, additionally i created shortcuts on the desktop to help you out

gedit git-core gnupg flex bison gperf build-essential zip curl libc6-dev libncurses5-dev:i386 x11proto-core-dev libx11-dev:i386 libreadline6-dev:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dev g++-multilib mingw32 openjdk-6-jdk tofrodos python-markdown libxml2-utils xsltproc zlib1g-dev:i386 git dos2unix


Download: (size is 3.1gb)
The format is .zip from the http mirror, unpack the zip and you will find a collection of rar parts, unpack them and then unpack the VMWARE VM from the parts. at the newsgroups mirror it's not packed in a zip but it's just the rar and par2 parts.

(If necessary you can fix the rar parts with the par2 parts using MultiPar, 10% recovery is included)

Newsgroups Mirror:
Note: if you don't have newsgroups, use this free trial of 3 days:, don't enter any payment method, just fill in the other details to acquire a free usenet account for 3 days)

Open the NZB file with a newsreader like Grabit or Newsleecher which has been set up to use your trial account

Or use the HTTP mirror, Please don't spam it, it's a very large file, if you can use newsgroups, please do so

HTTP Mirror: big thanks to the Recognized Contributor Hosting (NXTGenWeb and - Swift -)

Is this the right section btw? I didn't know if misc or development was the right category. since it's a misc item, but its about developing
or maybe even general? If a mod knows a better section please move my post

HTTP link down. Please maybe update to KK and re-release. Looks promising.

Hey I was wondering if you still have these tools available. All the links are broken. I have Linux Mint 16. It's a lot smoother for me than Ubuntu 13.10
