To prepare an Android microSD card, follow these steps: Make sure that you have xz installed. For systems using apt-get, try installing the xz-utils package: $ sudo apt-get install xz-utils Decompress the image using xz.

Understanding how the BBB interacts with Linux kernel drivers is the key to creating Android apps that can do the same. In this chapter, we will tell you about Android's hardware abstraction layer, or HAL. We will also introduce you to PacktHAL, a special library that you can include within your apps to interface with hardware on the BBB. We assume that you already have Eclipse Android Developer Tools (ADT) with the Android SDK, the Android Native Development Kit (NDK), and the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) tools installed and working on your system.

3 V Future Technology Devices International (FTDI) cable, but it does include the BeagleBone Black itself. 3 volt FTDI cable (product ID 70) allows you to view all of the serial debug output of the BBB. If you are performing any serious development, you must have one of these cables. The cable is necessary if you wish to observe the boot process of the BBB (both bootloader and kernel output as the system is initialized), and it also provides a console shell into Linux and Android. This shell helps you to troubleshoot boot problems, as you will always have a method of interacting with the system when a network connection is unavailable, or when no communication services are up and running.
