While Android's use in embedded systems is now common, details about how to debug and develop in its internals are still hard to come by. Many very important questions therefore remain largely unanswered, such as: What's the best tools and techniques to follow a codepath from the app layer all the way down the kernel? How do I isolate a performance problem within the stack? What's the best way to edit and/or browse the Android sources? How can I set break points in Java code and still jump into the native C code that gets called from Java? This talk will explain the tools, techniques and, quite frankly, hacks that can be used to debug difficult problems within the Android stack. We'll cover both the tools and techniques that come from Linux and those that are Android specific. For example, we'll talk about Eclipse integration, Perf, ftrace, ddms, gdb, etc.
