    I just had a quick question, haven't been able to find any answers elsewhere. Figured I'd ask it here. I Was wondering if it's possible to build the Android source so that the resulting Android Emulator disk images contains all of the apps of a normal Android 1.5 system?

    I've tried building the source twice now but, the disk images are just the normal emulator disk images (missing most of the default apps & some of the graphical improvements of the 1.5 update). I feel like it must be some sort of setting in the makefile to say what platform to build for.

    Do I need to follow the instructions listed here? Will this enable the build process to build the emulator disk images so that they mimic the G1 completely (including all default Android apps, etc) ?

    Building For Dream ?(Android Open Source Project)?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This does not quite answer your question, but I built from source and tried flashing my phone with the produced .img files. I didn't get farther than the boot splash screen :(

    but I would like to run my procued images on the emulator first ... just to make sure I havent screwed up.
