Android: updating SDK from command line

You may want to create a script "Update Android SDK.bash" that quickly gets you up to speed without starting IDE (e.g. Eclipse) UI.

echo 'Android SDK home ' $ANDROID_HOME
$ANDROID_HOME/tools/android update sdk --no-ui --all --force 

Notice that it will ask you several times to click letter 'y'
Do you accept the license 'android-sdk-license-bcbbd656' [y/n]: y
