Nothing changed in that area, so there's no need for a new guide. Just like with a comp: install the software, install the data (game), configure as needed and run.

GemRB - IE anywhere.
Mages needed! Looking for Planescape: Torment testers
Market android version IS NOT SUPPORTED ANYMORE: reported bugs will be ignored! Still looking for builders ...

The instructions I found at http://gibberlings3....showtopic=24482 really helped me.  Assume you have seen this?


Here are my notes over and above this (from Dec 2014, but think still relevant):


General procedure:
- Download latest dated apk from Sourceforge
- Allow installation of unverfied apk's under Security
- Install on device
- Modify gemrb.cfg under /sdcard/Android/data/net.sourceforge.gemrb/files (may be different for you -  I could not get it to run off an external USB drive) 
Note: made a ./bak directory and copied the original gemrb.cfg there
- Take install on PC
-  Install Widescreen with GemRB option and desired resolution under Windows (1040x600)
- Copy to Android gemrb directory next to  bg2
NNB: Widescreen modified files are copied to ./override under the game directory.  Noted in forum discussion that it is better to have all overrides in the folder under the apk install directory. 
⇒ Keep this in mind if installing other mods later
NOTE: When installing with updated resolution, need to manually clear out the iwd2/cache directory
