I am using the Android binary package of Opencv right now (by following the tutorials here:

But I am in the need of modifying the maximum number of iterations of RANSAC in the cvFindHomography() function. However I did not find any instructions about how to compile the binary package from the source file for Android platform.

So could anybody direct me into some tutorials on doing this?

Thanks a lot!

An outdated instruction exists on OpenCV DevZone wiki, but it needs update.

In particular (1) the OpenCV sources are now in GIT and (2) after successful build for Android you need to run "make install" command in the build folder and get a kind of SDK in "install" subfolder.

You can find the latest (unstable) documentation here:

To compile just the C++ version you can read here:
