Apple iDevice or iOS users can manually Download Xcode.DMG Files without App Store via Direct Links available. Apple Xcode Features Xcode helps developers to perform various iOS, iPadOS, macOS (OS X), tvOS and watchOS related software and apps development tasks efficiently and effectively i.e. User interface design, testing, coding, and debugging. Step 4: Xcode, Tigerbrew. In this step we will set up a development environment for building modern Unix software. Create a snapshot of the disk: qemu-img create -f qcow2 -b 3-browser.qcow2 4-tigerbrew.qcow2.
This section describes how to set up your local work environment to build the Android source files. You must use Linux or macOS; building under Windows is not currently supported.
For an overview of the entire code-review and code-update process, see Life of a Patch.Note: All commands in this site are preceded by a dollar sign ($) to differentiate them from output or entries within files. You may use the Click to copy feature at the top right of each command box to copy all lines without the dollar signs or triple-click each line to copy it individually without the dollar sign.
Some requirements for the build environment are determined by the version of the source code that you plan to compile. For a full list of available branches, see Build Numbers. You can also choose to download and build the latest source code (called
master), in which case you simply omit the branch specification when you initialize the repository.
After selecting a branch, follow the appropriate instructions below to set up your build environment.

The Android build is routinely tested in house on Ubuntu LTS (14.04) and Debian testing. Most other distributions should have the required build tools available.
For Gingerbread (2.3.x) and higher versions, including the
master branch, a 64-bit environment is required. Older versions can be compiled on 32-bit systems.
You need a 64-bit version of Ubuntu.

You may use Ubuntu 12.04 to build older versions of Android. Version 12.04 isn't supported on
master or recent releases.
Building on Ubuntu 10.04-11.10 is no longer supported, but may be useful for building older releases of AOSP.
On Ubuntu 10.10:

Install a community-maintained default set of
udev rules for all Android devices by following the instructions to Set up a device for development.
By default, the output of each build is stored in the
out/ subdirectory of the matching source tree.
On some machines with multiple storage devices, builds are faster when storing the source files and the output on separate volumes. For additional performance, the output can be stored on a file system optimized for speed instead of crash robustness, because all files can be regenerated if the file system is corrupted.
To set this up, export the
OUT_DIR_COMMON_BASE variable to point to the location where your output directories will be stored.
The output directory for each separate source tree is named after the directory holding the source tree. For instance, if you have source trees
/source/master2 and if
OUT_DIR_COMMON_BASE is set to
/output, the output directories are
Avoid having multiple source trees stored in directories that have the same name, as the source trees would end up sharing an output directory, with unpredictable results. This is only supported on Jelly Bean (4.1) and higher, including the
In a default installation, macOS runs on a case-preserving but case-insensitive file system. This type of file system isn't supported by Git and causes some Git commands (such as
git status) to behave abnormally. Because of this, we recommend that you always work with the AOSP source files on a case-sensitive file system. This can be done fairly easily using a disk image, discussed below.
When the proper file system is available, building the
master branch in a modern macOS environment is straightforward. Earlier branches require some additional tools and SDKs.
You can create a case-sensitive file system within your existing macOS environment using a disk image. To create the image, launch Disk Utility and select New Image. A size of 250 GB is the minimum to complete the build; more space is best for future growth. Using sparse images saves space while allowing growth as needed. Select case sensitive, journaled as the volume format.
You can also create the file system from a shell with the following command:
This creates a
.dmg.sparseimage file which, when mounted, acts as a drive with the required formatting for Android development.
If you need a larger volume later, you can resize the sparse image with the following command:
For a disk image named
android.dmg.sparseimage stored in your home directory, you can add helper functions to
After you've mounted the
android volume, you do all your work there. You can eject it (unmount it) just as you would an external drive.

On macOS, the default limit on the number of simultaneous open file descriptors is too low and a highly parallel build process may exceed this limit. To increase the cap, add the following lines to your
