Step by Step Guide on How to Install Android SDK Offline (not completely offline)

This guide is for Android developers who are for some reason unable to install Android SDK by following the instruction provided in the official Android Developer page.  Mine is because of my company’s proxy that block this kind of installation.

It’s for Eclipse IDE on Windows box only.  We’ll collect first or download all the necessary files and then glue them together.  I’ll provide and try to update the links here from time to time.

 Required Files:

  • Java Development Kit (JDK)  Download
  • Eclipse – Eclipse 3.6.1 or Helios is the version I’m using.  Download
  • Android Development Tools (ADT) Plugin – custom plugin so we can build Android applications using Eclipse IDE.  Download
  • Android SDK Starter Package – includes the core SDK Tools.  Download
  • Android SDK Tools, revision 10 – the complete tools component of the SDK.  Download
  • Android SDK Platform-tools, revision 3 – platform tools component of the SDK.  Download
  • Android SDK Platform – our target Android OS.

Android SDK Platform:

STEPS:

  1. Install the JDK using the default setup.
  2. On you Android developer folder (ex. C:\Developers\Android\) place all the zip files you just downloaded.
  3. Create a workspace folder on your home folder (ex. C:\Developers\Android\workspace).
  4. Unzip the Android SDK Starter Package (android-sdk_r10-windows.zip).  NOTE: I suggest to use WinRAR so we can just right-click the zip file and then choose Extract Here
  5. We now have the android-sdk-windows folder on our android developer folder.  Inside this folder, delete the tools folder.  Move the Android SDK Tools (tools_r10-windows.zip) and Android SDK Platform-tools (platform-tools_r03-windows.zip) zip files to this folder.  Unzip them and rename as tools and platform-tools respectively.
  6. Inside android-sdk-windows folder there’s a platforms folder.  Move and unzip the Android SDK Platform file (android-2.3.3_r01-linux.zip) on this folder.
  7. Inside android-sdk-windows folder, create samples folder.  Move and unzip the Android SDK Samples zip file (samples-2.3.3_r01-linux.zip) to this folder.
  8. Unzip the Eclipse file (eclipse-SDK-3.6.1-win32-x86_64.zip).
  9. Inside eclipse folder, run eclipse.exe.  It will ask for the workspace folder to use.  Choose the workspace folder you created.  You can optionally check the Use this as the default and do not ask again checkbox and then click OK.
  10. Still on Eclipse, select Help > Install New Software…. Click Add, in the top-right corner and then click Archive…  Browse and select the downloaded ADT zip file (ADT-10.0.0.zip).  Enter a name for this update site (ex. ADT Plugin) in the Name field and then click OK.
  11. Check the Developer Tools checkbox or click the Select All button and then click Next button and then accept the defaults.  (Sorry, you need to be online as some component need to be downloaded at this part.  I’ll update it once I know how to do the offline mode of it).  After the installation, Eclipse should be restarted.
  12. On Eclipse, select Window > Preferences.  Select Android on the left pane.  On SDK location, browse the select the Android SDK folder (android-sdk-windows) then click Apply.
  13. Still on Eclipse, select Windows > Android SDK and AVD Manager.  Click the Installed Packages on the left pane and you will notice, there’s SDK Platform Android 2.3.3, API 10, revision 1 and Samples for SDK API 10, revision 1.  We are now ready to create virtual devices.
  14. Click Virtual Devices on the left pane.  Click New… button and give the virtual device a name (ex. Gingerbread).  Select Android 2.3.3 API Level 10.  Type 512 or more for SD Card size and then click Create AVD button.  We are now ready to create our famous “Hello World” application.

  1. Cool information… But not linked with Microsoft’s C# (as mentioned on the blog’s description).

    Nevertheless, thanks! 😉

    1. Yes, as you said.
      Because I have more experience with C#, so now I’ve tried to update something in my blog, if I have more experience in Android, I’ll change my title.
      🙂

    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] configurations. The value of the parameter should be a comma
    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] separated list of configuration values. Locales should be specified
    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] as either a language or language-region pair. Some examples:
    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] en

    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] If you put the special locale, zz_ZZ on the list, it will perform

    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] internationalization process. For example:
    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] port,land,zz_ZZ
    [2012-01-21 09:30:16 – prj1] -d one or more device assets to include, separated by commas

  16. There is a sound that most humans will experience many times in life,
    that, despite being perfectly ordinary and extremely frequent,
    never fails to awaken a soul-crushing sadness deep within our minds.
    This is the precise feeling that stirred me each morning, as my alarm
    clock stirred me from sleep. I awoke as if my alarm
    clock had unexpectedly poked me with a cattle prod.
    My eyes shot open, while my body catapulted itself out of bed.
    I stood for a moment, surveying my immaculately clean, and meticulously modern bedroom,
    and allowed my mind a chance to catch up with my movements.

    My girlfriend managed to stay sound asleep through this fiasco, and looked peaceful as ever.
    I glanced at the clock, and like many other mornings before this
    one, realized my scramble to wake up and get going was fruitless.
    I was up early, and there was no need to rush. The real urgency was coming from my own personal rush to break away from my horribly mundane existence.

    My name is Justin Rylands, and my life is not bad by any means.

    I am 27 years old with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from
    Princeton. My father, Drew Rylands, was responsible
    for starting one of the most successful dental technology distribution warehouses in the United States, and
    this provided me with a guaranteed, top dollar sales
    position since the day I exited my mother’s womb. I have a sought-after career, a beautiful girlfriend,
    an apartment that looks like a Home Goods catalog came to life, and a picture perfect family.
    I was not rebellious growing up, and I equate this to my wealthy upbringing,
    and well-structured, loving parents. I was always handsome, and intelligent.
    I was dedicated to school, and sports, and rarely ever distracted
    by girls. I was disinterested in parties, and the counterproductive
    activities my peers got off on. I was a born success story.
    I was everything any parent could ask for, and they were well aware of this.
    I was nothing at all like my insurgent older brother who’d flown the coop when I was 13.
    My parents had convinced me that, “Andy went away for college, because that’s what young men do when they turn 18.”
    But I knew this was a lie, even as a child.
    My brother was an absolute shit head, and I was
    a firsthand witness to his teen years full of underage drinking and cutting class.
    I can recall numerous late nights that ended in my mother sobbing
    on the couch while my father was on the phone explaining to the cops what
    crime his hooligan son got himself caught up in now. It was not
    until I was 17, and overheard a phone call between my brother and father, that I finally discovered Andy had
    run off with a group of glass blowing hippies who
    crafted marijuana pipes and travelled the country with the small amount
    of money they made selling these “art pieces”. I was never
    entirely able to grasp why this lifestyle brought my brother so much joy, but after 4 years of this perpetuating
    9 to 5 grind, I started to wonder if Andy had the right idea after all.

    “Morning Boss,” I said, half-joking to my father upon stepping into his office.

    “Ah, my son! Bright and early as always. Just like your
    father.” He clapped his hand on my back and gave me that classic, fatherly grin.
    “I’ve got a project for you.” I cringed. I figured
    this meant I’d be planning another painfully boring charity event for inner-city children with no dental insurance.
