[solved] Qt on Android (Necessitas) - working in simulator - how to get it on my phone?
I’ve got Necessitas up and running on a Windows 7 (x64) box and have gotten a basic do-nothing app up in the simulator. Now how do I deploy this thing to my phone? I can’t find any documentation to this effect.
just run as normal in Necessitas Qt Creator, but with the device plugged in. Also, as Denis pointed out, you will need Ministro. Look into packaging inside Qt Creator (Project->Run config, if I remember well), as your device might require API choice other than default.
At least, that worked on Linux, maybe Windows has some tricks up it’s sleeve here :)
I can’t get Qt Creator to deploy to device no matter what I try. It’s getting annoying. It always starts the blasted emulator. How in the world do I deploy to devive?
“adb devices” shows my device and “adb get-state” shows “device”. I know it’s working because I successfully installed my apk file using “adb install blah.apk”.
But no matter what, it just won’t deploy to the device! Any ideas?
Hopefully, with Digia being committed to officially supporting Android, we will see better working android toolchain, I myself had mostly negative experiences with Necessitas under windows, I never managed to get anything running on the simulator or deploy to a device, my greatest success was the successful creation of an APK that I manually copy and install on the device.
Official beta support for Android is expected this spring, hopefully finalized for an Autumn release.
