Hi guys,

I tried to follow the steps in this link :

https://github.com/alfredh/baresip-android
 
I executed steps 1 to 4 without any problem --> I built the binary

But then I did not understand step 5.

There should be some missing steps.

Can someone simplify step 5 to me ? or give me more clarification?

The binary is the important part. Just find another way to get it on the phone. Is your phone even rooted?

My intention is to build an android App on top of the binary and load on device without the need to root the device ? Is that possible ?

You need some high level APK packing skill then.

Sadly I use rapid development tools and thereby never had to fiddle with APK building. I suggest you create a new question with something like "Android building multiple custom binaries into one apk". Android's usually depend on a GUI too, which you also never mentioned. So maybe you should look into that too (no GUI, only command line, means the target phone also has to have root, but you just said you wanted to avoid that? It's quite conflicting what you're saying)

Google this exact string: is-it-possible-to-run-a-native-arm-binary-on-a-non-rooted-android-phone
The first returned link should get you closer.
I.e. the binary you already compiled goes into the assets folder your other GUI app. So no fiddling with APK building after all. Just use the normal way you deploy your Android app.
