I am needing to make a kernel for a certain device. There aren't any source codes available for that device but there are for multiple clones out there. I am running Linux Mint Debian edition and i cant find a guide for compiling a kernel on debian.
I am trying to compile a kernel for LGE-P690 from CM ICS source but i don't have the device in my hand i searched all over the net for vendor files but i was unsuccessful in finding vendor files for ics but i found one for gingerbread so is there anyway i could perform ./extract-files.sh without device or can i convert gingerbread vendor files to ics if so how elaborate.
Code: make: /home/dm47021/Android/toolchains/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-linaro_4.8.2-2013.08/bin/arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi-gcc: Command not found /bin/bash: /scripts/gcc-version.sh: No such file or directory
when I compile android (http://source.android.com/download) it does not compile some source files. For example there is external/bluetooth/bluez/sbc/sbc.c which is not compiled. There are also other such files.
It's possible those files need not to be compiled. Or it might be that I need some special configuration to compile them.
Either way, if it is possible, I'd like to compile them. Is there some way to do it? Maybe some "compile_all" make target? (I believe the reason why I want to compile all source files is not important)
I'm trying to compile kernel for A10 Aurora i have a couple of questions.I'm using this guide for make a custom kernel.Compiled allwinner-v3.0-android-v2.Btw my laptop is running ubuntu 32 bit 2 cores 30gb hdd on VMware workstation.
I made zImage, uImage and modules without getting any errors but how to flash them to the device?Using adb? making boot.img making cwm zip how to pack them?
Code: OBJCOPY arch/arm/boot/Image Kernel: arch/arm/boot/Image is ready[code]....
Last week, I played around with getting a custom recovery built for INQ Cloud Touch..
After compiling - flashing recompiling re-flashing for almost a week and on the verge of giving up ...
I realized, searched and found flash_image ... come to find out custom compile of recovery was fine, fastboot did not like my device and wasn't flashing it properly.
So flash_image got the custom recovery working as suppose to, able to backup/restore ... Flash roms.. however there are no roms.. best i could do was try roms from devices close to this one, with no luck!
So i decided i would try my hand at making a 2.3.7 gingerbread rom. Of course stock is froyo 2.2.1 and before i can make the rom.. i need a kernel for gingerbread. So I got the cm-kernel source using this guide:
[EDIT] pulled my .config file using both /proc/config.tgz and the included script to pull it from the boot.img [/EDIT]
Now, i been trying to get kernel compiled for the last 5 days.. and like i said, no lack of searching and reading... Had first error, forgot what it was now, but i got it fixed and compile went on.
Code: LD .tmp_vmlinux1 arm-eabi-ld: no machine record defined arm-eabi-ld: no machine record defined arch/arm/mach-msm/built-in.o: In function `parse_tag_msm_partition':
I have a notepad full of things i have enabled/disabled and restored to original trying to find what is missing or shouldn't be there!
what is the most simple way to get the latest version of TextSecure installed on my Android Phone?
My solution was creating something using the sourcecode found here: [URL] But the question is, how can I get it working. I've tried multiple things, but it seems like it isn't as easy as I thought. Currently I am on Windows 8. My phone is an Xperia S without GAPPS flashed, so no Play Store. Only F-Droid with FOSS.
I am looking for the hp slate 21 open source kernel. I want to modify the kernel image to change the power_start from 0 to 1 so the tablet can boot when the tablet is plugged. How to do it or has the open source kernel that would be great.how to unpack the zImage kernel for the hp slate 21.
Is there any way (or what is the best way) to visualize what specific files within a kernel source are inter-related, what files take priority over others, etc? For example, I want to trace from top to bottom the related kernel source files & actions that would be triggered by insertion into a headphone jack, and dig through the code as much as I'm able and try narrowing down the source of a problem. I can (and have) poked around in github, and understand how to compile the kernel, but don't quite have a grasp of the hierarchy of files, drivers, etc. within the source.
If there isn't a way to 'map' out a specific kernel source, any generic flowchart or 'map' created in general for visualizing the inter-relationships of source files within android kernels?
How to compile a kernel, pack into a boot.img, edit a ramdisk, etc., within the last few weeks, but this is a major roadblock in my understanding of kernel source code.
Has anyone successfully compiled the android kernel and tested it in the Android emulator, and if so is there anything that special that needs to be done? Documentation for the SDK is excellent, however documentation for compiling the kernel and setting up a custom machine in the emulator has been hard for me to find.
I have just donwload the source code of the Android default Launcher here: http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/packages/apps/Launcher.git;... But when I import the project, i can't compile it because there is a lot of errors. Many of this are unresolved name, package, class and variables... why? what is the problem? How can I solve it?
I just went through the process of compiling a custom ROM and they used a stock kernel. I would like to incorporate a different kernel when I compile and instead of the stock. I know I could compile them separately and have them flash together but I want one zip to flash. Just would like to go through the process to learn.
I wanted to run a helloworld application with the AOSP and see it in emulator. [ Not through Android SDK setup] I followed the steps in http://source .android .com/source/download.html and compiled successfully the full code from / directory. I could see contacts.apk, camera.apk all applications apk in ~/mydroid/out/target /product /generic/system/app. tried two things. Went to /package/apps folder. Took a helloworld application( helloworld folder which was created in android-sdk), and copied a 'Android.mk' file from Launcher2 folder, kept my new name for application 'LOCAL_ PACKAGE_NAME := helloworld' and placed the folder in packages/app folder and compiled at /. I couldnt see .apk file created for helloworld in ~/mydroid/out/ target/product/ generic /system/app. 2 - I went to Launcher2 folde /package/apps/Launcher2. I changed the package name for Launcher2 in packages/app folder in 'Android,mk' file and compiled at root. I couldnt see a new apk created on the new packaged name( i gave) under ~/mydroid/out/target/product/generic/system/app. I tried several times with changes in activity names, application names in manifest.xml file. Nothing reflects. But it is sure, both helloworld, and change in package name is getting picked up while compiling. I could see intermediate classes getting created. ~/mydroid/out/target/common/ obj/APPS/manifirst_i ntermediates/src/com/ android/mani --> manifirst is like a helloworld which i created and run. ~/mydroid/out/ target/common/obj /APPS /Launcher2_intermediates /src/com/ android/launcher Could anyone please share the steps of compiling a simple Helloworld program in AOSP
