Android on 64bit kernels, 64-bit support in Bionic and the Android Shell -the footpath we had to follow for bootstrapping the Android port for AArch64. In this presentation we will cover the low level implementation details as well as a short history of our project.
At the end of the session the audience should be ready to boot a shell only Android filesystem, run the low level tests and start submitting patches.
This session will be working through the planned open source contributions from Linaro, ARM, and other members who want to share their open source contribution plans for the next year. Projects to be included are: gcc, llvm, glibc, gold, gdb, binutils.
The Dalvik virtual machine is the crucial part of Android responsible for executing platform independent code in Android apps.The upcoming L release of Android replaces "Dalvik" with a new implementation of the Dalvik virtual machine called the "Android RunTime" (ART). In this session you can learn about ART, Dalvik compatibility, and our experiences assisting with the 64bit porting efforts on AOSP.
