  • SD card Size: 400 MB
  • Built-in : HVGA

Leave the rest as the default settings

Be patient it may take a few minutes to create your new AVD. Whoa! You have created your first AVD. Android 4.1 JELLY BEAN here it is!

Close the SDK setup now.

We are still not ready to start developing our apps and deploy it in AVD and for that you need to configure eclipse so here it goes.

  •     Launch the eclipse and choose the workspace where you want your project folders should be and check the option “used this as the default”.

  •       Select Help-> Install new software

You Will See Something Like This.

 Now fill out the following info

If you get an error like don't use SSL. Then Change location from "" to ""

  • After a connection is made and available tools are retrieved expand "Developer Tools" and select "Android DDMS" and "Android Development Tools"

  • Press "Next"


  • On the next dialog, click Next to read and accept the license agreement and install any dependencies, then click Finish.
  • You may receive a Security Warning about unsigned content. Press "OK"
  • Done. Restart eclipse now.
  • After restart we need to tell Eclipse where we copied the "Android SDK".

  • Select "Windows > Preferences"

  • Select "Android" from the left pane. After you select "Android" you will receive an error. That is because it is not setup yet. We are setting it up now.

  • For the SDK Location, browse to where you installed the SDK or simply enter the path as entered below (only if you have followed the same path as here).

  • Press “Apply” then "OK"A dialog box will appear. If you want to send usage data to Google leave it checked, otherwise uncheck it and press "Continue". This dialog box can sometimes get trapped beneath your window. Minimize Eclipse if you don't see it.
