Two months ago Google changed the terms and conditions for using Android SDK. The major change was the addition of a new clause that prohibits the developers from taking any action that may fragment the Android ecosystem. The decision seemed to be legit from Google’s end, since one of the main criticism about Android is its fragmented ecosystem. But, the supporters of free (as in freedom) software took the move on the negative side.

Developers who stands for software freedom were enraged by Google’s move. They unequivocally said that by including a clause binding developers not to tweak the system at will Google has made Android SDK a proprietary development kit.

Hence, the need for a Android development kit that won’t limit developers to build new systems was pressing. Replicant Project has taken heed to these developers and released a fully free ReplicantSDK 4.0 (API level 15).

You can download it from ReplicantSDK page, and find installation and building instructions in the wiki.
