WARNING!!! You are looking for outdated CrystaX NDK release.
New CrystaX NDK 10.3.2 is available, offering numerous great features and improvements; perhaps you should check it out instead of using old one.

Description

Here are customized distribution of Android NDK 1.6_r1 which I have rebuilt from official sources. Support of C++ exceptions, RTTI and Standard C++ Library added. Actually only some build scripts and configuration include files were changed.

License

The content of the CrystaX NDK is covered by various open-source licenses. See the copyright disclaimers in each respective file for details.

Note that the CrystaX NDK release packages also contain prebuilt binaries for the compiler, linker, archiver, etc. The source codes for the toolchains are available at GitHub (you can use the build script to download it automatically).

The prebuilt GCC and companion binaries (GDB, binutils etc) are covered by either the GNU General Public License (GPL) or the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). For details, see the files COPYING and COPYING.LIB under $NDK/toolchains/$tc/prebuilt/$system.

The prebuilt LLVM/Clang toolchains are covered by the LLVM "BSD" license.

Basically, licensing rules are the same as for Google's Android NDK - i.e., both commercial and non-commercial usage allowed. The only additions are regarding CrystaX parts, which are covered by a permissive BSD 2-clause license.

How to build

You can also build your own distribution if you don't want to use my prebuilt versions. To do it, follow instructions below.

Required development tools:

  • For Windows, a recent release of Cygwin is required
  • GNU Make 3.81 or later
  • GNU Makeinfo (most recent version)
  • GIT (for downloading toolchain sources)
  • Most recent GNU Libtool packages (automake, autoconf etc)
  • GNU C/C++ 3.x or later (for Windows, it should be exactly 3.x, not 4.x)
  • ncurses library (for Cygwin, it should be ncurses-devel package)
  • GNU flex (most recent version)
  • patch utility. Most likely, it is already installed if you are using Linux or Mac OS X; however, in Cygwin it should be installed explicitly

Instructions

  • Download my patch and store it somewhere
  • Download android-ndk-1.6_r1 for your platform from android web site
  • Unpack downloaded file and go to directory android-ndk-1.6_r1
  • Apply my patch:
    patch -p1 <path-to-my-patch
  • Point environment variable ANDROID_NDK_ROOT to the current directory:
    export ANDROID_NDK_ROOT=`pwd`
  • For Windows, point environment variable CC to the GCC 3:
    export CC=gcc-3
  • Run build script:
    ./build/tools/build-toolchain.sh
    It will download android toolchain sources (including binutils, gcc and gdb), patch and compile them. It could take lot of time depending on your configuration so be patient.
  • Now you are ready to test it. Try to compile application hello-jni (I've modified it, so there are STL and exceptions in the code) using instructions from Android team
  • Enjoy!
