Install android studio in Raspberry pi 4

The post describes if the possible way to Install android studio in raspberry pi 4.

Android Studio does not support raspberry pi 4. Currently, the android studio supports only Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.

In Linux, officially, Android supports only Amd64 (64-bit processor) architecture operating system. So if you use Raspberry pi 4, raspberry pi 3, and other similar hardware, run on Arm64 architecture. Then make sure you do not install android studio on it. Whatever you use any method to try to install android studio on it.

Check arm64 architecture in Debian-based distros.

sudo dpkg --print-architecture

Output off Debian base architecture command looks like

Some people say you use Debian multi-architecture to install i386 architecture and then install android studio. I also try it. But it does not work for me.

Firstly you enable the installation of multi-architecture binaries, apt, and dpkg need configuration changes. So, for example, if you have an amd64 architecture that you want to install i386 libraries onto, do the following:

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5 lib32bz2-1.0 libstdc++6:i386 libfontconfig1:i386 libxext6:i386 libxrender1:i386 libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386

i386 repo links are broken. It does not install in your raspberry pi 4.

If you install ubuntu on raspberry pi 4. after running these commands, install android-studio on your raspberry pi 4. it does not install android-studio in your raspberry pi 4.

Best Ways to download Android in arm64 by snap

Firstly install snap package manager install your raspberry pi 4. after installation is complete, paste the snap android-studio install command in your raspberry pi 4. But the Android-studio snap command is also not working for raspberry pi 4.

sudo snap install android-studio --classic

Snap command output in your terminal show architecture error

Arm 64 is the main reason I wouldn't say I like raspberry pi 4 because lots of software and packages do not support arm64 architecture. They only support amd64 architecture. I know arm64 is not 32bit; it is 64-bit architecture support.

I know some people raspberry pi 4 is a small PC to build projects on li. So you use raspberry pi 4 to start working Linux. But my opinion is arm 64 architecture is a very big problem for developers. So which developers are working frontend developer, full-stack, and mobile app development?
