How To Install Android 3.1 Honeycomb on Windows 7

Sunday, June 19, 2011 3 comments

Google has released Android 3.1 Honeycomb and 2.3.4 Gingerbread SDK to developers but you can use it on your Windows computer using emulator without actually buying any Android 3.1 Tablet.

If you have a multitouch touch device connected to your PC then make it full screen and use it as an Android tablet.

Step-by-step installation guide:

1.Download Android SDK (installer_r10-windows.exe) and run it.
2.It will prompt to you to install  Install Java Platform (JDK) if not already installed.
3.When the installation is complete, program will self run and you’ll be asked to choose packages to install. From here, you have select only Android 3.1 components necessary. 
By default, all are checked as Accept and hence, you will have to Reject components by selecting them individually except Android SDK Platform-tools, version 3 and Android Platform SDK 3.0, API11, Revision 1.

4.Select Virtual devices from left pane and create a new Android Virtual Device (AVD).

  • Enter any name.
  • Choose a Target (Android Honeycomb.....)
  • Enter a size for the emulator SD Card or leave it empty. (only for Android 2.3)
  • Choose a Skin or enter any resolution.
  • Click Create AVD.]
4. Start the created Virtual Device.
6.Wait for a few seconds and you will see Android boot screen.
7.First Boot will take few minutes but be patient and wait for device to start.

That’s all,now you can explore your shiny new Android or install apps!
