Building an Oscam APK for Android

Hello again.
Here is a tutorial on how to create an Oscam APK for your Android device.
On the previous tutorial, I showed you how to compile a native Oscam binary that is able to run on Android and I promised I would make another tutorial on how to build an APK with this binary and run it.

Lets get started.
You will need to download Android Studio from

For this tutorial, it does not matter which OS your are running on as long as you have access to the compiled Oscam binary ready to include on your APK.

Compiling Oscam for Android

It has been a while since my last entry on the blog but life is not what it used to be.
Anyway, today I bring you a new tutorial with detailed instructions on how to build Oscam for your Android box (like Wetek Play).

The official Oscam documentation has some information on how to compile it using the NDK toolchain but it’s outdated and you will not be able to target devices running on Lollipop (5.0+) as the binaries will not run because they are not Position Independent Executables (PIE) and it also does not explain how to cross-compile and install OpenSSL.
I will show you how to compile a good static binary that should run on any arm-based Android device.

Hello friends.

The website has been down for a couple days but I believe its fixed now.

My prodiver updated PHP on the server and some wordpress plugins had problems with the new version.

I think everything is working again but let me know if something else is broken.

Mini RC Car Hacked (Controlled with Arduino, PC and Android devices)

Hello friends, it has been a while since I posted something new on the blog but I have been wasting too much time learning new stuff.

Today I want to show you one of my latest projects which combines electronics and programming for PC and Android devices.

For most of my life I have been working with software and never adventured much into the electronics world but I always wanted to, so I bought an Arduino Uno controller a few months ago to get me started but never made any real projects with it. I just played around with some leds and light sensors that came with the kit, but a few days ago I had some time to make a little project which involved simple electronics knowledge, the Arduino platform, programming desktop applications to communicate with the Serial port and creating my first Android application.

I am now controlling a mini RC car (which I bought at a chinese store for 10€) using my computer and my Android cellphone and tablet.

Raspberry Pi and Oscam

I have recently acquired a couple of Raspberry Pi to play with, and I must say I am quite impressed with this cheap little device.

You can use it as a desktop, a small server, a media center and you also have GPIO interface to control external hardware, like sensors and motor drivers (like the Arduino but with much more processing power and memory).

The first experiment I did when I got my hands on the Raspberry was to compile and install Oscam so I could have a server with little energy consumption but still has the processing power required to sustain a large number of Oscam users and readers.

This post is the report of my experiment and will allow you to reproduce my steps.
