Android SDK: one step closer

Starting with the latest android 1.6 SDK release 1, Google is distributing the Linux version as a TGZ file instead of ZIP.
We mentioned the problem of distributing the Linux version as a ZIP file in previous posts, loosing ownerships and file permissions is a problem when you install the SDK or NDK in a multiuser environment.

Well, we are halfway there, still there's some permission problems that you can fix using android-fixperms that can be downloaded from this site.

Use it like this, for example to change the SDK installed at /opt/android-sdk-linux_x86-1.6_r1

$ android-fixperms --sdk --sdk-dir=/opt/android-sdk-linux_x86-1.6_r1

Hope this helps.
