I have an Android devices. But bad luck, it doesn't support Google Play. So I can't download OpenCV Manager. Now I want to debug some samples on this devices. Is there any solution. By the way I don't plan to use static library.

So I want to know if the opencv source code is open. In that way, I can compile my own opencv manager.

  1. For the devices without Google Play (like dev kits) the OpenCV4Android package contains APKs for manual installation; look into OpenCV-2.4.2-android-sdk/apk folder. You need to install the Manager.apk, run its GUI to check how it detects your CPU and install the corresponding binary_pack.apk
  2. Just in case you're interested in the Manager's source codes, they're located under opencv/android/service folder; be aware that it requires some headers and libs from Android tree to be built.
  3. For debugging purposes there is a static initialization option that on practice means including a copy of OpenCV dynamic libs into your application and loading them via System.loadLibrary() call without OpenCV Manager interaction.

  1. OpenCV is an open source project and all its code is open to everyone. You can download it, compile it, debug it, and do anything you want.

  2. If I am not mistaken, OpenCV manager is just a service for applications that use OpenCV. For example if multiple applications use same version of OpenCV only one binary with OpenCV will be used (instead of binary per application). So I guess it is not easy to debug OpenCV code through OpenCV manager.

  1. first look at you folder: /opencv/OpenCV-2.4.7-android-sdk/apk there are the apks, I used OpenCV_2.4.7_Manager_2.14_armv7a-neon.apk
  2. where is Opencv Manager source code,you can found with path: /opencv/opencv-2.4.7/modules/java/ /opencv/opencv-2.4.7/modules/androidcamera/ /opencv/opencv-2.4.7/platforms/android/
