Android Studio Project Setup and Configuration

I’m trying to address a bug Retroarch on Android ( where bluetooth controllers, after disconnect, reconnect to the wrong port. I’m pretty sure I can fix this, but I can’t figure out how to get a debugger working or to produce log output. This makes development difficult in an unfamiliar system.

I can’t imagine that I’m alone in wishing that I could contribute to this project, but lacking the tools and documentation to make that happen. If you’re one of those developers, and you can help me get my env setup, I’d be more than happy to contribute back to the official documentation to solve this problem going forward.

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi... you're my only hope...

I think most people use adb/gdb:

Awesome. Thank you. I’ll check it out.
