How to make android build fast whenever there is a change in framework

+1 vote

I am doing some changes in frameworks/base/, so i just wanted to know whether there is a faster process of building it. Currently what i follow is very slow i.e. I do

$ make -j4 installclean // which cleans *.img files from the /out folder
$ make -j4

and finally it creates all *.img. So apart from the above process, is there a way for a single line of change can be built fast ?

Best answer

You can use mm

Go to frameworks/base/ ; do your changes; then do mm 

This will build only the frameworks.jar similarly you can do for other projects as well

So after doing mm, does the change gets updated when my emulator is running or do I have to restart the emulator again ?
You have to restart the emulator

I want to know if there is a way to some settings to be used by framework services such as ActivityManagerService of WindowManagerService like apps can do with preferences. They should be able to store some of their variables into some persistent storage and read them at bootup.

Currently, I found only the xml files in res/res folder but this is editable only at compile time.
