How to Speed Up the AVD

disclaimer though. After doing this configuration, do not expect a lightning fast AVD. This will possibly cut 1 to 2 minutes of boot up time depending on your computer specification.

With that said, do the following:

    1. On Eclipse, click Run -> Run Configurations.
    1. Under Android Application, select your current active project (ex: HelloWorld)
    1. Click on the Target tab.
    1. Under Additional Emulator Command Line Options, type-in-scale 0.5 -no-boot-anim
    1. Click Apply and you are done.

No Boot Anim
Setting the No Boot Anim flag will turn of the boot animation. Thus removing the loading of the images used in the animation, the delays used to have a smooth animation, and the transition to and from boot animation.

Ideally speaking, setting the scale to 50% will lessen the graphic rendering 50%. It might help just a little, but every milliseconds count if all you wanted is to test your app.

With that set, your emulator should look like this.
