You can enable support for certain forward version features via the
android.support namespace. In order to accomplish this you need to start the
Android SDK Manager and make sure that under the Extras heading you select
and install the Android Support package.
Once done you go into the directory extras/android/support/v4 and copy the
android-support-v4.jar to your own project's libs directory. Next go
within IntelliJ IDEA to File » Project Structure and under Project
Settings go to Modules, make sure your application is selected in the
middle pane, then on the right side select the Dependencies tab. In the
window below click the plus-icon and select Jars or directories. From the
resulting window browse to your libs directory and select the
android-support-v4.jar and press OK to close the window and add the
jar-file to the dependencies of the project. Since you are now using certain
constants from a newer version of Android the Module SDK needs to be changed
to Android 4.0.3 Platform as well. Press Apply and close the Project
Settings by pressing the OK button.
