Android for MIPS

I recently learnt about this effort to port over Android to the MIPS platform at the this website and decided to investigate what it was about.

Before I could check out any source code, I had to install Curl and Git. For Git install see my previous post. Curl can be installed as follows:
sudo apt-get install curl

Next, install repo, which is a google tool (read the google blog post for details:
curl >/home/am/repo

Once repo is set up, run repo sync to check out the generic Android for MIPS source
