Short Description
Build environment for Android Open Source Project Kitkat and older versions
Full Description


Docker image for building Android Open Source Project (AOSP) Kitkat (4.4.x) and older verions.

Note: For newer versions, e.g. Lollipop, please check tedwang-tw/docker-aosp-v5.


Pull the image from the Docker Hub. This is the recommended method of installation as it is easier to update image.

docker pull tedwang/aosp-v4:latest

Alternately you can build the image locally.

git clone
cd docker-aosp-v4
docker build -t tedwang/aosp-v4 .

Here you can swap the base image with either tedwang/aosp-base12 or -base14 by manually modifying "FROM" command in Dockerfile.

Note: If you'd like the original monolithic build, you can clone by the branch "monolithic":

git clone -b monolithic
cd docker-aosp-v4
docker build -t tedwang/aosp-v4:monolithic .


You can launch the image using the docker command line, suppose you have prepared a folder for aosp download in the local host, e.g. ~/AOSP,

docker run --name='aosp-v4' -it --rm \
-v ~/AOSP:/home/android/aosp \
tedwang/aosp-v4 \

The /home/android/aosp is the mounted point inside the container.

After entering the container, you can operate as the normal developing:

0 android@ ~ $ cd aosp
0 android@ ~/aosp $ git config --global ""
0 android@ ~/aosp $ git config --global "My Name"
0 android@ ~/aosp $ repo init -u
0 android@ ~/aosp $ repo sync
0 android@ ~/aosp $ source build/
0 android@ ~/aosp $ lunch ......



  • Setup for ccache
  • <s>Separate base image</s>

    • Created branch "monolithic" for no separated base image build
    • "master" branch now includes the separated base image
