avd – Android emulator hosts file

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I wonder how I could update host file on a android virtual device? Each time I reopen emulator it appears with defaul hosts file, so I pull hosts file everytime.

what I do now:

  1. emulator.exe -avd %avd_name% -partition-size 256 -gpu on
  2. adb.exe wait-for-device
  3. adb.exe remount
  4. adb.exe push %avd_root_dir%\hosts /system/etc

but next time when I start the emulator there is default hosts file. How to change hosts file only once?

Myabe you have to repack system.img.

It’s under sdk/systemimages/android-**/armeabi-v7a.
