    For a college assignment I need to know two things:

    What language is the Android OS written in?

    AND

    What software is used to create the Android OS?

    Please can anyone help me with this?

    Android is built upon a Linux kernel. Some of the system is developed in C/C++ and the rest in Java.

    To develop apps for the platform you use Java. You can use C++ as well, but if you are stuck i wouldn't hope much for help, because the vast majority is using Java.

    Here is good architecture overview: Videos | Android Developers
