How to install Android Mode pre-release correctly? Where is the detailed instruction?

edited March 2017 in Android Mode

According to

In order to do this, first download the file for the desired release or pre-release from the releases section in the GitHub repo of the Android Mode. Uncompress the zip file and then move the AndroidMode folder into the modes folder inside inside the sketchbook folder.

This is very confusing for me. I have downloaded the Android Mode 0258 ( and tried to copy the main folder (renamed to "AndroidMode") to "modes" folder in Processing folder and it doesn't work.

Or maybe I understood this instruction wrongly? What does it mean " inside the sketchbook folder"?


  • It goes inside the modes folder. Make sure you remove any AndroidMode folder present there before you add the newest one. Make sure processing is not running.

    modes >> AndroidMode >> relevant-folders


  • I found my solution. file->preferences this shows where is the correct Path for sketchbook. And its not the Processing Folder.

  • CTRL + K is a shortcut to open current sketch's folder. L-)

  • That is the correct sketchbook location. You will notice in that location you find the Library and Modes folder. however that is not the processing folder. The processing folder is where your processing executable is and hopefully your processing folder is not the same as your sketchbook folder. As a side note, and just to make matters confusing, my sketchbook folder's name is Processing 8-X

    Mine are "P2/" & "P3/". :P
