<arduino-1.0-beta1 main folder>hardwarearduinocoresarduinowiring.h

5. If you do not want to set things up difficultly, but have instant reward:
– Look at the Seedstudio wiki:
– Copy the sample code SeeeduinoADKDemo.pde into the Arduino IDE, test compile
– Change the LED from 12 to 13 (the on-board LED)
– Compile, upload to board
– Compile/upload the example Android application from to phone
– Connect board to PC for power, phone to board
– Start the demo app on the phone, toggle the on-board LED
