I was running the symphony_examples_helloworld on android emulator with android 6.0 and arm-CPU, running on x86 linux system. I have installed Qualcomm Symphony SDK "arm-linux-androideabi" directory and was trying to verify the installation, I got following error on command :

~/SDK/platform-tools/adb shell /data/local/tmp/symphony/symphony_examples_helloworld

Detected Symphony running from a live terminal, using standard error for all debugging output

Symphony SDK is only functional on devices powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, therefore it will not work on an Android emulator.

I am trying to build symphony SDK which works for all cpu+gpu+dsp on Android smartphone, can you please resolve the following queries:
1. What all Qualcomm Snapdragon processors/series can be used to install/build symphony.
2. On what Android versions we can install/build symphony? Since the symphony sdk is launched recently, will it work only on latest versions of android like oreo(8.0), or will it be fine with versions like marshmallow (6.0). Also, for DSP, does hexagon SDK have a particular android version requirement?
3. How can we build dsp version of symphony as it is only for 32 bit architecture(Hexagon SDK only for 32 bit) and all the new smartphones come with 64 bit architecture.
4. Can you suggest some android smartphones on which symphony can be install/build?
5. We need the /system directory of the hardware to be in "writable" mode in order to push and execute the executable symphony_examples files on the smartphone. According to the following link, remounting /system to writable mode only works till Android 6.
"It works with Marshmallow (6.0) using Genymotion. mount -o remount,rw /system"
Can symphony be built on a smartphone with android 6?
Kindy suggest.
Thank you.

The Symphony SDK was actually launched a few years go. It is being replaced by the Power Optimization SDK and the Heterogeneous Compute SDK, which is the SDK that just launched. I recommend reviewing these two SDKs as I believe most of your questions will be addressed. 

Power Optimization SDK:

Heterogeneous Compute SDK:

Symphony SDK will be removed from Qualcomm Developer Network in a few weeks.
