Downloading earlier SDK versions


The book on page xxi suggests to install every version going back to Android 2.2. In my first version I tried that and had some problems. In my new fresh install, I first just installed the missing Google APIs for vers. 4.2.2

Then I tried to go all the way down to vers. 2.2 first. Under 2.2 I only see SDK Platform and Google APIs but no “emulator system image”.
For vers. 2.3.3 I see Intex x86 Atom System Image.
For lowest version I see with ARM System Image is 4.0.

So should I still install the older versions or skip them?


That is extremely interesting. Thank you for letting me know!

The Atom system image is fine. I generally prefer it when it is available.
