Intent objects are a bundle of information. It is used to launch the essential components of an android application, like

-startActivity(intent) for launching an activity
-startService(intent) for launching a service
-sendBroadcast(intent) for launching a Broadcast Receiver

The primary pieces of information of an Intent are

-action and

Action means the action to be performed by the intent like, ACTION_DIAL, ACTION_SET_WALLPAPER etc.

Data means, the data to be operate on.

Two types of intent are
-Explicit Intent
-Implicit Intent

In explicit intents, we explictly define the target component
eg: Intent intent = new Intent();
intent.setClass(this, NextScreen.class);
In this, we explicitly define to go to the NextScreen activity.

In implicit intents, no target component will be there. Actually, it is launching components of other application.

eg: Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SET_WALLPAPER);

Copying Files to a Disk Image

Once you have created the disk image, you can copy files to it prior to loading it in the emulator. To copy files, you can mount the image as a loop device and then copy the files to it, or you can use a utility such as mtools to copy the files directly to the image. The mtools package is available for Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Here, I will mount and copy files to emulator SD Card as a loop device.

In Unix-like operating systems, a loop device, vnd (vnode disk), or lofi (loopback file interface) is a pseudo-device that makes a file accessible as a block device.

Create a directory, named SD in my home.

Type the command in Terminal:
$sudo mount -o loop /home/eric/.android/avd/my_avd_GoogleAPIs_1.5.avd/sdcard.img /home/eric/sd

Where /home/eric/sd is the directory mounted to be accessed.
/home/eric/.android/avd/my_avd_GoogleAPIs_1.5.avd/sdcard.img is the SDCard image created for Android Emulator.

Now, you can create directory, copy files to the emulator's SDCard by SD.

$cd sd
$sudo mkdir pictures
$cd pictures
$sudo cp /home/eric/SDCard_16M.png .

To know more details of the command mount, type
$man mount

it's another approach, Create SD Card in Android Emulator and copy files into, in Eclipse, Emulator and DDMS.

Create an SD Card to existing AVD

Here, I want to create an SD Card image to an AVD.

- Firstly, locate the path of your AVD, type the command in Terminal:
$android list avd

- Create a SDCard image, named "sdcard.img" (it's the default name for the emulator to load).
In my case, I want to add 16M SD Card to the /home/eric/.android/avd/my_avd_GoogleAPIs_1.5.avd.

$mksdcard 16M /home/eric/.android/avd/my_avd_GoogleAPIs_1.5.avd/sdcard.img

where /home/eric/.android/avd/my_avd_GoogleAPIs_1.5.avd/ is the path of my avd.

Restart the emulator, click Menu in Android Home screen, then click Settings > SD Card & phone storage. Now, you can see the SD Card here.

With 16M SD Card:

Without SD Card, before adding the SDCard image:

next >> Copying Files to a Disk Image

it's another approach, Create SD Card in Android Emulator and copy files into, in Eclipse, Emulator and DDMS.
