I've built Chromium from source for arm64. I was reading this page which discusses how to pass flags to Chromium upon startup. It gives the following example:
out/Default/bin/content_shell_apk argv --args='--foo --bar'
out/Default/bin doesn't contain a
content_shell_apk but rather a
chrome_public_apk. The rest of this question is based on the (possibly mistaken) assumption that those two are the same.
That script accesses other files in my Chromium source directory meaning that I need to copy some if not all of the files to the Android. That's a non-trivial ask given how big the source is. Furthermore, the script invokes
python3 which doesn't exist on my Android.
All of this brings me to my situation. I don't know how to use that script to start Chromium so I've instead been doing
am start org.chromium.chrome/com.google.android.apps.chrome.Main -a android.intent.action.VIEW
However, adding flags to that invocation doesn't appear to have any effect.
How do I either
- Run the
chrome_public_apkscript on the Android or
- Launch the installed APK with flags
