About the Author

Karim J. Yaghmour is part serial entrepreneur part unrepentant geek. He is the CEO of Opersys Inc., a company providing development and training services on Embedded Android and Embedded Linux, and is most widely known for having authored O'Reilly's Building Embedded Linux Systems — which sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide and has been translated into several different languages.

Karim pioneered the world of Linux tracing by introducing the Linux Trace Toolkit (LTT) in the late '90s. He continued maintaining LTT through 2005 and was joined in this effort by developers from several companies, including IBM, HP, and Intel. LTT users have included: Google, IBM, HP, Oracle, Alcatel, Nortel, Ericsson, Qualcomm, NASA, Boeing, Airbus, Sony, Samsung, NEC, Fujitsu, SGI, RedHat, Thales, Oerlikon, Bull, Motorola, ARM, ST Micro. Other contributions include relayfs and Adeos.

Karim has presented and published as part of a number of peer-reviewed scientific and industry conferences, magazines and online publications, including Usenix, the Linux Kernel Summit, the Embedded Linux Conference, the Android Builders Summit, AnDevCon, the Embedded Systems Conference, the Ottawa Linux Symposium, LinuxJournal, the O'Reilly Network and the Real-Time Linux Workshop.

This is one of the rare books that digs into the internals of Android. It was well written and informative and digs into the internals of the AOSP. This isn't a book that caters to app developers as you can see from the title.

I found it to be well organized, up to date, and highly informative in an area where reading the source code is typically your only option.

And it has been way too long in coming. For decades I have done low level development on systems ranging from mainframes and supercomputers and vast distributed telecommunications systems to tiny microcontrollers and everything in between. I'm the kind of software developer that owns (and needs) two logic analyzers and an oscilloscope. When I started doing Android platform work -- that stuff that is in C and C++ and even snippets of assembler and requires that you know the nitty gritty details of how the platform works under the hood -- I found little in the way of either books or online documentation that was helpful. Yaghmour's book is the one reference that actually speaks to me in the language and terminology that I use day to day and addresses the kinds of concerns that I have. If you are the "systems guy", or even if you're an application developer that just wants to know more about what goes on when you leave the Java world, I would recommend this book.

This book provides a great look at how Android works, where to get the source, how to tweek it, and anything else you could want to know in order to understand Android at a deeper level. This is a must read for anyone who needs to do Android system work for custom devices or who just wants to better understand the underlying technologies.

I have been porting Android to embedded devices the past 2 months. I had no prior knowledge of Android and like the author mentions in the introduction, Android was quite different from embedded Linux. I am left with a lot of questions since I started porting and 1/2 hour with this book already proved its worth.

Pretty much THE book on porting android to a given hardware. Book was good enough that I took a week long class with the author to further my knowledge. Karim knows his stuff.

This book covers mostly 2.3/Gingerbread but touches 4.2/Jelly Bean as well with useful links, warning, ref etc, it serves very well as roadmap to explore Android world from a system level, the best Android internal book I read so far is actually published in Chinese:

Excellent discussion on how to setup/build/customize the android system. There is little documentation for this anywhere else that I could find. Very useful!

Karim is an expert on Linux and Android and usually the information present his book is fairly thorough. The only thing with this book is he does not give more insight into actually creating an Embedded Android device with different hardware etc., Most of the contact in this book talk about how Android at the embedded level is developed currently with the current android phone devices.
