Hi Giedrius,

Nice that there is interest and support for the Android version.

I have recently updated QGIS for Android to version 2.4. There is an
updated set of scripts and an updated source code branch available for
this [1][2]. They may change (and be merged back into the main repo) in
the future.

If you want to give it a try without building yourself first, there is
also an .apk available [3]

As Giuseppe said, the easiest way to help the QGIS-Android project is to
fork the repository and to create pull requests with fixes/improvements.

Kind regards,
