Ola !

This is my first contribution here on xda-developers as well and I would like to thank some other Android emulator skinners that showed me how to do this and write the text and this summary skeleton for me

I have created a new skin for the LG GT540 Optimus for the Android SDK emulator
  • Portrait and Landscape mode of the HVGA Emulator 320x480 pixel display supported
  • No branding logos or credentials provided but please link back to this thread if you use it ;-]


The archive should be extracted to a new folder in your Android SDK skins folder:
e.g. with version 9 of the Windows SDK here c:\android-sdk-windows\platforms\android-9\skins\LG-GT540_HVGA
Then select it in the AVD wizard of the SDK here: Android SDK and AVD Manager -> Virtual Devices -> Create new Android Virtual Device (AVD) -> Skin: Built-in: LG-GT540_HVGA
In newer versions of the emulator AVD Manager you need to manually enable keyboard support to use the camera and search button and the included virtual keyboard.

The dPad is disabled in the hardware.ini because the LG GT540 also does not have a dPad

Known Issues
The camera button in the emulator is disabled per default - so since I mapped it here it does currently not do anything.
The above screenshot is made with the Gingerbread 2.3 OS

Version History
  • v1.0 - Initial Release (wrong display format WQVGA)
  • v1.1 - Fixed display format HVGA (320x480) and added Landscape support


2013-03-02: Updated link to zip because Multiupload does not serve it anymore.

Let me know what you think ... ;-]

Stupid me used 240x400 pixels for the first release - don't know which devil rode me. (Should have checked the sizes of my screenshots from the phone first )
So now I made a new version in the correct resolution 320x480 (HVGA) and also added the landscape support. Switch to landscape mode from the emulator using the (CTRL+F12) shortcut. (Strg+F12 on German keyboards)
