General :: How To Interrupt Android Boot Sequence To Force It Boot To Linux Kernel Only

Sep 12, 2013

I am trying to do some low level performance testing related to device processor cores through adb which I feel it is affected by Android background services and system stuff.

As I know that the Android boot sequence stages are as follow:

1.Execute Boot ROM code.
2.Execute the boot loader.
3.Load the Linux kernel.
4.Launch Zygote, which initializes the Dalvik VM.
5.System server which loads the Android system.

So my question is how can I interrupt this sequence to force it stop on stage 3 to load Linux kernel. This can implement my intermediary performance testings before loading again Android system.

Does Fastboot or Clockworkmod recovery can load my device to a kind of Linux kernel?

General :: Why Won't Allwinner A10 Kernel Boot

Jun 26, 2013

I am trying to use my cheap virtually unbrickable tablet to learn more about kernel development and eventually ROM building.

I have extracted the manufacturers (WoPad) LiveSuit image and used to break up the boot image.

I extracted the config file from the kernel image using extract-ikconfig and it created a config file. I didn't see the config in /proc.

So, I have the factory ramdisk and the factory kernel config.

I have downloaded several kernel sources (lichee-3.0.8, ChritianTroy's 3.0.36, and another one from linux-sunxi 3.0.72). I can successfully compile all of them without errors and they all generate zImages, uImages, etc using the factory config as well as the sun4i_crane configs they come with.

When I repack the boot.img with the newly created kernel and install it on nandc it wont' boot past the android icon (u-boot). When I compare my boot.img to the factory one, they both have the same offset where the kernel starts (0x00000800). I have also ensured I'm replacing the kernel modules when I'm changing kernel versions.

Here is the line I'm using to repack the boot.img

mkbootimg --base 0x40000000 --pagesize 2048 --kernel zImage --ramdisk ramdisk-repack.cpio.gz --board sun4i --cmdline "console=ttyS0,115200 rw init=/init loglevel=8" -o boot.img


Also, I'm building on Ubuntu 13.04 with Google GCC 4.6 from the ndk. I have built kernels for other devices without issues.

General :: Porting A Kernel That Hangs At Boot

Feb 1, 2014

I am trying to port a kernel from one zte 8960 to another. I have cwm recover set up with kexec to get a log of what is going on. the kernel hangs at boot of the phone so I trying to find the cause

-last_kmsg after a failed boot of 3.4

-last_kmsg after a boot of 3.0.8

-split-boot of boot.img

output directory: fi
boot_magic correct: ANDROID!
kernel size: 6045264
kernel address: 2149613568
Base: 2149580800 (hex): 0x80200000

I am thinking it might had hit "un-allocated" memory area, I did have to change the ramdisk_offset from 0x01300000 to 0x02000000 make the kernel fit. what could I do to check to see if it is un-allocated space I am dealing with

General :: How To Modify Application Already Included In ROM

Jun 30, 2012

I'd like to modify the Gallery3D application , which is already included in my current rom (CM7 nightly), using eclipse and adb. However when trying to install the version I compiled, it fails.

There are two conflicts at least : the package name, and the providers.

I tried to freeze the ROM version with titanium backup, but it doesn't change anything.

The package name, I could change it in the source code (using sed utility, since eclipse was generating an exception with the Android tool to rename the package -_-)

But the providers, this is really annoying to have to change their names as well, it's a much more complicated operation, and I'd prefer to be able to use the source code as is.

I suppose I could try to remove Gallery3D from the ROM, but not sure how to do that. Or other possibilities ?

General :: Possible To Modify Google Music?

Mar 8, 2012

Issues with google music not recognizing music stored on their sd card, if their phone already has internal storage, but I have noticed on my HTC Amaze that google music will only recognize the music on the internal storage and not all of the songs I had on my micro sd. Is it possible to modify google music to read or find music from more than one location on your phone?

PS I have more music than what would fit on the the phones storage so moving songs from micro SD to the phones internal storage would not be an option.

General :: Android Boot Sequence And Backup / Access To Boot / Recovery Partitions?

Oct 4, 2012

I try to understand android boot sequence on my JB (under CM10). I found some docs and there should be specific partitions (boot, recovery, system, cache, data).

My understanding of the boot sequence is now:

A) normal boot:
1) Power ON ->
2) bootloader ->
3) boot-partition where i flashed the kernel aka boot.img ->
4a) system-partition with the OS (libs, UI, etc) where i unpacked over CWM my ->
4b) data-partition, where i unpacked and installed all the apps ->
4c) cache-partition with user data

B) recovery boot (adb reboot recovery):
1) Power ON ->
2) bootloader ->
3) recovery-partition with CWM where i may unpack all the .zip stuff to proper partitions, or restore from sdcard, etc.

Is this correct? I wonder, because i didn't installed CWM into recovery-partition. It cames from install of CM10 (fastboot -i 0xfce flash boot boot.img), so it must be in boot-partition and not in recovery?

So, next confusion: i looked up to /proc/mtd and i don't see neither boot nor recovery partition here:


# cat /proc/mtd
dev: size erasesize name
mtd0: 19000000 00040000 "system"
mtd1: 00600000 00040000 "appslog"
mtd2: 06580000 00040000 "cache"
mtd3: 1a400000 00040000 "userdata"

I did a backup with CWM and loocked the data. There aren't boot, and recovery backups:


# ls -lha /sdcard/clockworkmod/backup/2012-10-
d---rwxr-x 2 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:56 .
d---rwxr-x 3 system sdcard_r 4.0K Oct 4 18:49 ..
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 1.6K Oct 4 18:54 .android_secure.vfat.dup
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 54.6M Oct 4 18:55 cache.yaffs2.img
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 360.2M Oct 4 18:53 data.yaffs2.img
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 212 Oct 4 18:56 nandroid.md5
----rwxr-x 1 system sdcard_r 214.6M Oct 4 18:51 system.yaffs2.img

So, i think i didn't understand the boot sequence and partition schema corectly.

General :: Can Android Boot Logo Screen Be Configured To Show Linux Boot Logging

General :: Can't Modify Anything On Samsung S3 Mini (Rooted)

Apr 24, 2014

I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 mini, GT-8190.

The first symptom was that my phone reboots itself constantly. My phone is rooted. I have TWRP installed.

I tried to flash a stock rom with Odin, it seemed to go well, but when the phone rebooted it was the same as before. I tried wiping the data with TWRP but when it reboots, everything is there again. I tried uninstalling the apps manually, but when I reboot the phone, they appear again. It's like I can't change anything in the internal memory. I can't do a factory reset, it reboots exactly the same as before.

It is like the internal memory is completely frozen. If I uninstall a program, it reappears on reboot, If I install an app, it disappears, If I turn off the wifi, it appears ON when reboot...
