This is the link to the system.img file. Thanks Anonymous for your contribution. I have tried this, and it works. Here's a link (David's Blog) that anonymous referred to. He has described all the steps to create this system image needed to put the Market app on emulator.
A few things:
- This image will only work on a 2.2 emulator
- While creating the emulator, you should specify the cache partition size as 96 MB.
Check out the previous post for more details.
There are however a few limitations that I found with this hack.
- The Android Market app doesn't seem to update itself to the new UI that we currently have on our phones.
- There are only a limited number of apps that show up on the Market. (No Angry Birds for example)
