    Why is the Android SDK so darn slow? Is it that my rig sucks for using developer tools (especially since that emulator is practically translating ARM to x86_64, or is it something else? Any way I can speed things up. By the way, thanks dsmryder for getting me this far! :)

    It's an emulator. If you find a way to optimize it, let us know.

    Well, OK. It is especially bad considering I have crappy OEM boxes, and you guys have workstations and building rigs. I have everything working, except the screen size. I will figure that out ASAP. I will wait for it to load, but how do I get the SDK to load CyanogenMod? Is that even possible to emulate MTDEV CM7, not just generic Android?

    Don't worry too much about that. It's to run apps, not the whole OS. If you wanted, I bet there's a way to replace the java files used by the emmulator.

    Dsmryder, do you realize that the Android emulator is a virtual machine?

    Yeah, It would help if I read the page posted. I saw VMware and I was thinking of the developement OS on a VM. Had I slowed down a bit I would have seen that it was about setting up the emmulator.
