What are the Android deployment steps?

BlitzMax primarily targets the main three desktop platforms - Windows, Linux and macOS - but also supports building native binaries for Android, iOS, Raspberry Pi and NX (Switch homebrew).
How can I build BlitzMax apps for Android?

Dabz wrote an Android tutorial for NG many years ago and I reposted it here when his Blitzmax site went down. It is long out of date with the latest Android Studio download though. I've been meaning to update it so I'll have a go at that this week.

Hi Mark, thanks for the pointer. It looks straightforward, I was thinking it would be much more difficult.
I can see that there's an OpenGL ES module, and that Brucey's SDL module is what should be used for core (graphics/events/audio), as it supports a lot of platforms (https://github.com/bmx-ng/sdl.mod/blob/master/sdl.mod/sdl.bmx).
