PostSubject: WARP3D420 $OURCE TUTORIAL   Fri Jan 03, 2014 3:54 pm

I started this thread because my pre-paid phone is not a supported device.
I have to start this over from scratch, so no need to dwell in the past. The reason I started learning this stuff was to help others. I don't even use custom roms in my phone. I have always liked computers, and anything to do with electronics. I don't care for this N00Bz word. I don't care for people that look down on another human being for anything. God above made us all differently for a reason. Society made sellers and buyers, translated to the Android community as builders and users.. My old lady thinks ROOTING is something you do in the garden.. My new project has nothing to do with Cyanogenmod,AOKP, or JellyBeer. I like to do things that no one has done yet. That is why I am not going to reveal my new Source code. Seems like everytime I come up with an idea somebody else gets "motivated" to do it. lol To be honest I will be working on two seldom done roms, i'm repo sync'n the first one right now. Also, @ legion modz forum - i will make a very detailed tutorial on building from Source. Starting with

1. dual and tri booting your PC, for the Windows lovers. (u need Linux 2 build)
2. Learning to use "Google" , this is your new best friend, It never gets tired of your questions, it never runs out of answers, and open 24 hours a day...
3. Learn basic linux commands ....cd, su, apt-get, etc
4. Setting up your build by yourself
5. Setting up a pre-made build box (see step 1)
6. Learn to use Github
7. Use your newly acquired knowledge to "git" your Sources
8. Build a device tree
9. Build a kernel
10. Put together a script to pull Prop files
11. Building
12. Beating your head on the desk when you can't figure out why it wont build, boot , and why you have so many "bugz"


But when i finish this tutorial, U may be.
this tutorial will not cover anything to do with "cooking" a rom, that is cheating...lol
Now I'm going to try my luck at these new $ROM$.
Thank you for visiting and God bless you

PostSubject: In the Beginning ,there was DARKNESS and cheap phones    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:08 pm


Windows 7 and Ubuntu,BBQ, or Mint,etc,Build boxes or from live CD. Despite their opposing missions, can get along like best pals on a single computer. Here's how to set up a dual boot or tri boot system that lets you enjoy the best of both worlds in perfect harmony. I know this works because it is how my system at home and on my laptop are setup.

HINT: Linux has around 100 viruses, Windows , it can't be counted. In linux it is harder to get viruses on a PC. Also, Windows viruses don't carry over to your Linux build OS.

Seen in this comparison article

"The expression is intended to suggest that proprietary software is more secure by virtue of its closed nature. If hackers can't see the code, then it's harder for them to create exploits for it--or so the thinking goes.

Unfortunately for Windows users, that's just not true--as evidenced by the never-ending parade of patches coming out of Redmond. In fact, one of Linux's many advantages over Windows is that it is more secure--much more. For small businesses and other organizations without a dedicated staff
of security experts, that benefit can be particularly critical."


1. Make sure you have CD's or USB's with your Distro's on them. I use image burn. If it's Windows, PAY FOR IT!!! if it's Linux, IT'S FREE!!!
2. You are going to need extra space on your hard drive, or PG suggested you can use an extra hard drive.
a. Each repo is going to use up 30 GB
b. Your build tools maybe 5 GB
c. 300 mb for the boot
d. 5-10 GB for the SWAP
e. I use a 1TB for a tri-boot ,500 GB for Windows 7- 250 GB for each of my Linux distros
f. RAM,RAM,RAM,RAM and then some more RAM-- u can thank me later.
g. If you don't have RAM, like on my laptop, I just hooked it to my Internet connection, and let it pull Source while I was sleeping.
3. I like to start fresh--Make a backup, Then I use "KILLDISK" ,it is free and it will write zero's on your hard drive. "Warp, Why do u do that?"
I don't like viruses.
4. Use your Recovery partition or your Windows XP/VISTA/7/8 disk to install the OS.
5. Many hours later, boot into Windows, and hit Start..type diskmgmt.msc
6. If you haven't partitioned a hard drive ,Google it, and learn, this is not a game.
7. Dual boot = 2 primary partitions Tri boot = 3 primary partitions.
Logical is OK for Linux, but dynamic is no good.
8. Pop that fresh copy of your distro in
9. If you are new to Linux "Google it"
10. If you press install alongside windows, it will search out the empty partition and install
11. I don't like GRUB2.
12 Get the non-commercial version of "EasyBCD for Windows, install it, u will be needing it.
13. This is also a free app Google "use easy BCD for dual boot"
14. The only other step needed on the tri boot setup is logging into the first Linux distro u install, open terminal and execute

update-grub2 .

after everything else is done...
15. If you opted for the "Build Box, skip the setting up build step....

There is also another method to installing Linux on a Laptop, or a stubborn PC with Graphics issues and that is with the "Alternate Ubuntu installer"


Open Disk management ,

give SYSTEM a drive letter of z:

Run CMD as Admin

reg  unload  HKLM\BCD00000000 (if you get an ERROR: bla bla bla) then this may already be removed)

robocopy  z:\  c:\  bootmgr

robocopy  z:\Boot  C:\Boot  /s

dir  c:\  /ah

If the bootmgr file and the Boot folder show up in the list, the procedure was successful.

bcdedit  /store  c:\boot\bcd  /set  {bootmgr}  device  partition=C:

bcdedit  /store  c:\boot\bcd  /set  {memdiag}  device  partition=C:

Close the Command Prompt window.

Return to Disk Management

Right-click on the Windows partition and select Mark Partition as Active
IF YOU HAVE TO ASK "WHY" I DID THIS ...DON'T DO IT (see number 7.) also easyBCD can do this process as well

PostSubject: All by myself, I did it!!    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:35 pm


This next step is not easy, it is time-consuming. So if you chose a "Build Box" I understand..
Lucky for you, i have already found everything for you , So split your screen .
On one side a fresh terminal, on the other side my tutorial, and copy/paste from the beginning of part B).
HINT: When adding any file with apt-get. Watch for anything being removed and anything being added. Also copy any SUGGESTED programs to a text- editor ,research them and add them if you like..
Also when adding things with the command--- $ sudo apt-get install , numerous items can be added behind the command, but i recommend doing it one by one.
This is because of obsoleted software or missing software errors.
This is only going to be a basic list: Seperated in two parts, by A)what you need and B)how to get it.


1. Compile Dependencies (libs)
2. Python 2.7.3 (3.2 and 3.3 opt.)
3. GNU MAKE (3.81 or 3.82)
4. Java JDK 6.xx ( not 7)
5. Android SDK
6. ADB & Fastboot
7. USB Configs
8. Repo command
9. Add everything to the PATH in ./bashrc

When you see this symbol "$", it means you are in terminal, but not as "ROOT"
Although if you see this symbol # , you are the "ROOT" user .
Your directory name will be in Red as well.

"But Warp, I don't know how to ROOT my Linux Box"
You don't say...

terminal: $ sudo passwd root
this will then open up Unix for you
add some passwords /confirm password /REMEMBER YOUR PASSWORD!!!
My password is ********** lol.

But Warp, I'm a brave "new user" I want "ROOT" access to file manager..

For Ubuntu
Terminal: $ gksudo nautilus
enter password-- DONE

For Mint (cinnamon)
Terminal: $ gksudo nemo
enter password-- DONE

For Mint (Mate)
Terminal: $ gksudo caja
enter password-- DONE!!!

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/mesa/libGL.so.1 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so

After you do all this, may be a good idea to add $ sudo apt-get upgrade

2. I don't get this step. Python is already on there, and if it ain't when you input "sudo apt-get install python" it will be...

3. Gnu Make , Your suppose to get this inside of build-essential , I like to know i got the newest one ,so i do it like thisgo to http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/make/
Download GNU MAKE 3.82
Open up file manager
go to download folder
cut file
go to home directory
close file manager
Open Terminal:
$ cd <name of gnu make folder(exact)>
then it will look something like this
gnu make $
$ ./configure
$ make
# make install
# make clean...DONE

4. Get rid of pre-installed "JAVA"

$ sudo apt-get purge openjdk-\* icedtea-\* icedtea6-\*

Add new Oracle JAVA 6

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java6-installer

If you want to check the version after it is done
Terminal: $java -version

5.Terminal: $ wget http://dl.google.com/android/android-sdk_r22-linux.tgz
When that finishes downloading
Terminal: $ tar -xvzf android-sdk_r22-linux.tgz

After extracting the package, run the command below to change into the tools directory.

cd ~/android-sdk-linux/tools

Finally, run the commands below to begin the installation.

./android update sdk


"wget" is the same thing as "curl"

6. This may seem like a pointless step.
Warp, I already have ADB & Fastboot when I installed SDK, but do you have the 4.2.2 update ??

Just to make sure..

Terminal: $ sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

7. Create a folder in Home dir "51-android.rules" .
Now open a terminal and input: $ gksudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
When another screen pops up copy and paste this inside--

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="091E", MODE="0666"

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0930", MODE="0666"

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="19D2", MODE="0666"
Save & Close text-editor.

Now fire up another terminal
To set proper permisisons: (Provide read permission to all users, in addition to whatever other permissions are pre-set)


Terminal: $ sudo chmod a+r /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules

8. Terminal: $ mkdir ~/bin
$ curl https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/googlesource/git-repo/repo > ~/bin/repo
Terminal: $ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

Terminal: $ export PATH=${PATH}:~/bin

9. You can make this change to the path permanent for all future Terminal sessions:
Terminal: gedit ~/.bashrc

add export PATH=${PATH}:~/bin, on its own line, then save the file.

If you ever have problems with repo.. try this

- Make sure you have a bin/ directory in your home directory and that it is included in your path: (Very Important)

$ PATH=~/bin:$PATH

- Next,
$ curl http://commondatastorage.googleapis....downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo
$ chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

This step was included , for no particular reason. If you chose a build box, and you made it past step 1 without using it, you did something wrong. Go back to step 1

But I might as well include a few sources for build boxes

PostSubject: How did he do that???    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:38 pm


GitHub is a web-based hosting service for software development projects that use the Git revision control system. GitHub offers both paid plans for private repositories, and free accounts for open source projects.

If you are a person that wants to "build" and become more than just a "user", then your next stop is at "Github"...
Your old buddy "Google" can get you there pretty fast.

The site provides social networking functionality such as feeds, followers and the network graph to display how developers work on their versions of a repository.

According to the terms of service,if an account's bandwidth usage significantly exceeds the average of other GitHub customers, the account's file hosting service may be immediately disabled or throttled until bandwidth consumption is reduced. In addition, while there is no hard limit, the guideline for the maximum size of a repository is one gigabyte.

GitHub also has their standard GUI application available for download (Windows, Mac, Linux) directly from the service's website.

Ever wonder, "How did this Dev get this unsupported device to boot the latest rom?" Chances are, the way they did it will be inputted in Github.
Pay attention to the device names and models, This is important, because like I said every device is different... Everyday lately, I spend an hour or two looking through Github. Not just at my device, but at other models, other kernels, other Solutions...

Now I'm not saying go there, Find a boardconfig you like, cut/paste it into your device tree, but you may find some answers to problems.

(some info from github Wiki)

beginner's links

PostSubject: "GIT" it!!!    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:42 pm


"GOT RAM" This is when it will come in handy. EDIT: If you like to multi-task. "message for the anal thread readers"

Open up file manager, HOME directory ,make new folder, name it "android" (easy way to do it)
Open "android" folder, make new folder, name it "system"
Close file manager


Fire up a terminal
$ mkdir android
$ cd android
$ mkdir system

To get your Source, all you need are three things.
1. Git
2. Curl
3. Repo command
Whether you used a "build box" or set it up yourself , you have everything, but to pull Source, that's all it uses...

How to Initialize the source repository



repo init -u https://android.googlesource.com/platform/manifest -b android-4.2.2_r1.2

ChameleonO$ :

repo init -u git://github.com/ChameleonOS/android.git -b jellybean-mr1

repo init -u git://github.com/ChameleonOS/android.git -b jellybean

PAC-Man :

repo init -u git://github.com/PAC-man/android.git -b cm-10.1

repo init -u git://github.com/PAC-man/android.git -b cm-10.2

CM 10.1 :

repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b cm-10.1

CM10 :

repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b jellybean

BeerGang :

repo init -u git://github.com/BeerGang/android.git -b cm-10.1


For 4.2

repo init -u https://github.com/AOKP/platform_manifest.git -b jb-mr1

For 4.1

repo init -u https://github.com/AOKP/platform_manifest.git -b jb


repo init -u git://github.com/MiCode/patchrom.git -b ics

Paranoid android

repo init -u git://github.com/ParanoidAndroid/android.git -b jellybean

slim bean

repo init -u git://github.com/SlimRoms/platform_manifest.git -b jb4.2


repo init -u https://github.com/TeamBAKED/platform_manifest.git -b jb

(I got this from another guide)

There are other codes out there, but these are main-stream.

So, what you want to do is , open a Terminal

cd = change directory

So you will
$ cd android
$ cd system
$ repo init -u git://github.com/PAC-man/android.git -b cm-10.1

At this point half your terminal or all your terminal will fill with text.
Two ways this will play out
1. it will let you register with name and email
2. it will give you on-screen codes to config it to your name and email

If you want the "Goodies" DO AS IT TELLS YOU

Now after you got that taken care of,

$ repo sync

Learn this code, remember this code, love this code.
it not only pulls the Source to your PC, but it also updates it every time you input it.
So, say Pacman adds a bluetooth update, BAM, that's how you get it.

It depends on your PC specs, to whether how long downloading your Source will take.
PG gets it quick, i get it slow, but we both get it...

For the next month or 4ever, this is where your "repo" will live..
Learn this folder, Open every folder, learn what's in there.

PostSubject: This tree has broken branches    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:44 pm


Creating a basic new device tree

First step to this is to search Github for a device tree for your specific device.
This is where I got lucky.
PG and his associates lol, had already put together a working device tree for our device.
Chances are ,if your device didn't just hit the stores this week, somebody may have started work on a device tree for it.
Although if you do not have anything to start with, You must first open your device folder in the "repo" you "sync'd" to your PC, look at the supported devices
This will be a tool only for reference.
As I open my folder I notice the following

1. A "bluetooth" folder, with a config file
2. An "include" folder
3. An "overlay" folder
4. A "prebuilts" folder
5. A "recovery" folder
6. A "releasetools" folder
7. AndroidBoard.mk
8. AndroidProducts.mk
9. Boardconfig.mk
10. CM.mk
11. device_warp2.mk
12. extract-files.sh (this is to pull prop blobs)
13. full_warp2.mk
14. Proprietary-files.txt( a list of the prop files you will pull from your stock phone)
15. recovery.fstab
16. setup-makefiles.sh
17. system.prop
18. USBcontroller.cpp

With this group of files, i was able to get a built, but not bootable copy of Jellybeer 10.1.

Now some devices have less and some have alot more files in the device folder.
If you are really serious about becoming a developer, you have to search out others on Github, forums, etc
This step will take teamwork.

Below are two explanations of the files that go into making a device tree...

The directions below describe how to configure make files for new mobile devices and products.

Create a company directory in //device/partner.

mkdir device/partner/<company_name>

Create a products directory beneath the company directory you created in step 1.

mkdir device/partner/<company_name>/products/

Create a product-specific make file, called device/partner/<company_name>/products/<first_product_name>.mk, that includes the following code:

$(call inherit-product, target/product/generic.mk)
# Overrides
PRODUCT_NAME := <first_product_name>
PRODUCT_DEVICE := <board_name>

In the products directory, create an AndroidProducts.mk file that point to (and is responsible for finding) the individual product make files.

# This file should set PRODUCT_MAKEFILES to a list of product makefiles
# to expose to the build system. LOCAL_DIR will already be set to
# the directory containing this file.
# This file may not rely on the value of any variable other than
# LOCAL_DIR; do not use any conditionals, and do not look up the
# value of any variable that isn't set in this file or in a file that
# it includes.

$(LOCAL_DIR)/first_product_name.mk \

Create a board-specific directory beneath your company directory that matches the PRODUCT_DEVICE variable <board_name> referenced in the product-specific make file above. This will include a make file that gets accessed by any product using this board.

mkdir device/partner/<company_name>/<board_name>

Create a product_config.mk file in the directory created in the previous step (device/partner/<company_name>/<board_name>). If this directory does not include a product_config.mk file, the build will fail.

# These definitions override the defaults in config/config.make for <board_name>

If you wish to modify system properties, create a system.prop file in your <board_name> directory(device/partner/<company_name>/<board_name>).

# system.prop for
# This overrides settings in the products/generic/system.prop file
# rild.libpath=/system/lib/libreference-ril.so
# rild.libargs=-d /dev/ttyS0

Add a pointer to <second_product_name>.mk within products/AndroidProducts.mk.

$(LOCAL_DIR)/first_product_name.mk \

device/partner/<company_name>/<board_name> must include an Android.mk file with at least the following code:

# make file for new hardware from
LOCAL_PATH := $(call my-dir)
# this is here to use the pre-built kernel
ALL_PREBUILT += $(file)
# no boot loader, so we don't need any of that stuff..
LOCAL_PATH := partner/<company_name>/<board_name>
include $(CLEAR_VARS)
# include more board specific stuff here? Such as Audio parameters.

To create a second product for the same board, create a second product-specific make file called device/partner/company_name/products/<second_product_name>.mk that includes:

$(call inherit-product, partner/google/products/generic.mk)
# Overrides
PRODUCT_NAME := <second_product_name>
PRODUCT_DEVICE := <board_name>

By now, you should have two new products, called <first_product_name> and <second_product_name> associated with <company_name>. To verify that a product is properly configured (<first_product_name>, for example), execute the following:

cd device
. ./envsetup.sh
partner_setup <first_product_name>
make PRODUCT-<first_product_name>-user

You should find new build binaries located in device/out/target/product/<board_name>.
New Product File Tree

The file tree below illustrates what your own system should look like after completing the steps above.


Part 2

Right... So you want to build your own device tree, read on.

Disclaimer: this is by no means complete, and there will be omissions as have explained all this top of my head and copied pasted certain bits that I have here on my own device tree.

The device tree, for example, /device/lg/gt540would consist of the following make files:

Android.mk - this will tell the build system to include and to build sources specifically for your device. See below, for an example. This is dependant on the device and hardware, you could have libsensors, liblights, libcamera subdirectories under the example device tree, i.e. /device/lg/gt540/libsensors, /device/lg/gt540/liblights, /device/lg/gt540/libcamera etc.
AndroidBoard.mk - this is for the kernel, the build system uses that to drop the kernel image in place (more about this in a few minutes)
AndroidProducts.mk - specifies the appropriate device's make file, to use for building. i.e. /device/lg/gt540/device_gt540.mk, this is specific also.
device_xxxxx.mk - specifies the properties and extras to copy over into the final output, in this case, it could be for example, device_gt540.mk
BoardConfig.mk - This is the meat of it all, this is where compiler conditional flags are set, partition layouts, boot addresses, ramdisk size, and so on.
Lets peek into each of those to give a glance as to where it all fits in.[/code]


include $(call all-named-subdir-makefiles, recovery libsensors liblights libcamera ....)

This is how the build will use that to build recovery, sensors, lights and camera (of course there will be more), its saying 'Yo Builder, go into each of the directories specified, and build the respective sources plskthxbai'


LOCAL_PATH := device/lg/gt540/

# Boot files

ALL_PREBUILT += $(file)

Now this, is telling the build system, to be able to drop this kernel into the out/target/product/lg/gt540 (notice the correlation with the device tree directory?)



Its telling the build as in 'Yo Builder, read that device make file please and process it upon completion of build.'

*device_xxxxx.mk: (for this example, device_gt540.mk) *

PRODUCT_NAME := lg_gt540

... specific ...

ro.com.android.dateformat=dd-MM-yyyy \

... more stuff ...

This is where all the specifics for the device such as drivers, proprietary libraries, supporting scripts specifically for the device, gets copied over to out/target/product/lg/gt540/system/ in this case. Notice how the overrides for the properties, these end up in the build.prop found in the root of the /system of the Android ROM.


LOCAL_PATH:= $(call my-dir)

TARGET_PREBUILT_KERNEL := device/lg/gt540/kernel
TARGET_PREBUILT_RECOVERY_KERNEL := device/lg/gt540/recovery_kernel

# This will vary from device!
TARGET_CPU_ABI := armeabi
TARGET_CPU_ABI := armeabi-v6l
TARGET_CPU_ABI2 := armeabi

# OpenGL drivers config file path
BOARD_EGL_CFG := device/lg/gt540/egl.cfg

# Dependant, not to be taken literally!

# Dependant, not to be taken literally!
BOARD_KERNEL_BASE := 0x02600000

# this will be device specific, and by doing cat /proc/mtd will give you the correct sizes
That is an excerpt, notice how we specify kernel's base address, this is how the boot.img gets generated after compilation is done and yet again, gets dropped into out/target/product/lg/gt540/boot.img. Also, more importantly, we're telling the build system to use the target platform for cross-compiling the sources (*TARGET_BOARD_PLATFORM*/*TARGET_CPU_ABI*) There will be more information in there such as conditional flags to pass to the compiler, for an example. we specified the directive HAVE_FM_RADIO to tell it, when it comes to handling the source for the FM radio system, to conditionally compile parts of the source. Again, this is hardware specific and mileage will vary, also this applies to the address for boot. In a nutshell, this is saying 'Yo Builder, read the damn variables and remember them and apply them when cross-compiling those source files!'

Now that the internals of each of those Android build make-files are shown.

Now, onto the vendor/ part of it, in AOSP, simply, once again, correlation and corresponds with the device/ tree, as in continuing with this example, vendor/lg/gt540/ which gets picked up by the lunch. There's more make files in there but the general consensus is there's a directory called proprietary which contains the proprietary libs (due to close-source etc) that gets copied over. The copying over of the libraries gets specified in the file device-vendor-blobs.mk, in this case, gt540-vendor-blobs.mk.

When the magic happens by doing the following:

. build/envsetup.sh

This is reading in the entire entries found in each of the device/ subdirectories and "remembers them", so the build system knows what type of target is used etc.

When the . lunch gets invoked, a menu appears prompting to pick the device that is required to build. Now the last and final step to do the build...

make -j5 > buildlog.log 2>&1

I run multitail on another terminal and monitor the buildlog.log file to check and make sure its building.

This last step will depend on how many cores you have (n cores + 1 as a rule) and it takes a while to build, GB build takes 40mins on my laptop running Arch Linux 64bit, ICS build takes about 2hrs 30 mins. So mileage will vary on what type of horsepower your machine has.

When the build is done, a little bell goes off and at the bottom of the said log file, I see this:

Combining NOTICE files: out/target/product/xxxxx/obj/NOTICE.html
Target system fs image: out/target/product/xxxxx/obj/PACKAGING/systemimage_intermediates/system.img
Install system fs image: out/target/product/xxxxx/system.img
out/target/product/xxxx/system.img+ total size is 108776448[/code]

As matter of interest JBQ (Jean Baptiste Queru - the 'boss' for managing/distributing the source from Google), his build step is this...

Extra code to use the ICS Repository

Now enter the following to initialize the repository:

cd ~/android/system/
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b ics

Extra codes to use the JB Repository

Now enter the following to initialize the repository:

cd ~/android/system/
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b jellybean

This is not everything, because a device tree for every device is different, To start from scratch will take alot of time.
You will add, then remove, and then add again.

PostSubject: The president has spoken    Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:46 pm


Building a kernel.
You're in deep waters once again.
To explain the kernel, I would say he is like the president of your phone.
He tells everyone what to do, and when to do it, and how to do it.


The kernel is the core of an operating system. It functions on a low level (kernelspace) interacting between the hardware of the machine and the programs which use the hardware to run. To make efficient use of the CPU, the kernel uses a scheduler to arbitrate which tasks take priority at any given moment, creating the illusion of many tasks being executed simultaneously.
(From ahn article about Arch Linux)

"Do you like LAG?"
Well if you answered "no"
Then you better build a good kernel.

I entered "building a kernel for android" and i got a long list of tutorials on this.
So, if my section on kernels isn't enough, Google has more.

"git clone" is the code prefix if you luck out and find a kernel source on github.
first you would
$ cd android
$ cd system
$ cd kernel
$ mkdir <name of company>
$ cd <name of company>
$ git clone bla bla bla bla bla lol

But for the purpose of this step, you did not find a kernel source...

So, if you did step 8, or you found a device repo on Github, then you know alot more about your device now, specifically the hardware that pushes your device..

This table lists the name and locations of SOME kernel sources and binary

Device / Binary location / Source location / Build configuration

manta / device/samsung/manta/kernel / kernel/exynos / manta_defconfig
mako / device/lge/mako-kernel/kernel / kernel/msm / mako_defconfig
grouper / device/asus/grouper/kernel / kernel/tegra / tegra3_android_defconfig
tilapia / device/asus/grouper/kernel / kernel/tegra / tegra3_android_defconfig
maguro / device/samsung/tuna/kernel / kernel/omap / tuna_defconfig
toro / device/samsung/tuna/kernel / kernel/omap / tuna_defconfig
panda / device/ti/panda/kernel / kernel/omap / panda_defconfig
stingray /device/moto/wingray/kernel / kernel/tegra / stingray_defconfig
wingray / device/moto/wingray/kernel / kernel/tegra / stingray_defconfig
crespo /device/samsung/crespo/kernel / kernel/samsung / herring_defconfig
crespo4g / device/samsung/crespo/kernel / kernel/samsung / herring_defconfig [/code]

This is for reference, these devices are supported..

You will want to look at the git log for the kernel binary in the device project that you are interested in.

Device projects are of the form device/<vendor>/<name>. This example is for the Panda..
$ git clone https://android.googlesource.com/device/ti/panda
$ cd panda
$ git log --max-count=1 kernel[/code]

The commit message for the kernel binary contains a partial git log of the kernel sources that were used to build the binary in question. The first entry in the log is the most recent, i.e. the one used to build that kernel. You will need it at a later step.
Downloading sources

Depending on which kernel you want,
Device projects are of the form device/<vendor>/<name>.

The goldfish project contains the kernel sources for the emulated platforms.
The msm project has the sources for ADP1, ADP2, Nexus One, Nexus 4, and can be used as a starting point for work on Qualcomm MSM chipsets.
The omap project is used for PandaBoard and Galaxy Nexus, and can be used as a starting point for work on TI OMAP chipsets.
The samsung project is used for Nexus S, and can be used as a starting point for work on Samsung Hummingbird chipsets.
The tegra project is for Xoom and Nexus 7, and can be used as a starting point for work on NVIDIA Tegra chipsets.
The exynos project has the kernel sources for Nexus 10, and can be used as a starting point for work on Samsung Exynos chipsets.[/code]

To git these

$ git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/common.git
$ git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/exynos.git
$ git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/goldfish.git
$ git clone https://android.googlesource.com/kernel/msm.git

Here are some other links for sources

http://www.lg.com/global/support/ope...opensource.jsp [/code]
You may have to do some leg work and find your source.

As an example, we would build the kernel using the following commands:

Part A. Pre-build Steps
A. Open terminal and change to the root of your kernel directory
B. Type "export ARCH=arm"
C. Type "export CROSS_COMPILE=~/android/system/kernel/toolchains/arm-eabi-linaro-4.6.2/bin/arm-eabi-" (your toolchain may be different than this, it is an example)

Part B. The First Build
A. Type "make <your_config_name>_defconfig"
B. Type "make menuconfig" and make the required changes to use any modules you added or similar changes.
C. Type "make -j<maximum number of jobs>"

Part C. Re-Builds
A. Type "make clean"
B. Type "make oldconfig"
C. Type "make -j<maximum number of jobs>"

Part D. Building Modules
You have two options:
A. Type "make modules"
B. Type "make path/to/your/module.ko"

The above steps explained:
A-C. Self-Explanatory
D. Move our kernel binary into our output folder

E. This handy bit of magic finds all ".ko" modules and also copies them into your output file.

Part A.(These steps are required every time you close your terminal and re-open it to build again.)
A. Ok shouldn’t need to explain this.
B. This command sets your target architecture.
C. Defines the path to the toolchain we are going to use to compile our kernel. You can change this to point towards whatever toolchain you have downloaded or feel like using, the way it is currently configured it will use the Linaro toolchain that we downloaded above.

Part B.(These only need to be run the first time you build a kernel.)
A. Load's your configuration file from earlier.
B. Open up a menu to configure your kernel. It will use the config file you loaded in the previous step as a base.
C. Viola start the build. I typically allow 1 job per core, so on my quad core machine I put "make -j4". Just raising that number will not make your build faster, your processor needs to be able to support the number of jobs you are assigning it.

Part C. (Use the command's when you are building any-time outside of the first)
A. This command gets rid of any old/outdated binaries or modules you compiled before, and let's start fresh. I like to run it every I build unless my changes are really small and localized.
B. A very awesome command, it parses through what has changed and only prompts you about new options.
C. See the explanation for the above "Part C.".

Part D.(Use these for just building kernel modules.)
A. This will re-build all modules.
B. Will rebuild just the module you need. Very useful when you need to rebuild a WiFi module.

Outcome A. Build Succeds

W00t!! You have a kernel built by your self from source. There are a couple things you need in-order to use this kernel on your device any ".ko" modules and the zImage binary. If you pay attention to the output of your compiler then you will see the location of those objects. However the following commands will make your life a bit easier(Thanks Recognized Developer Hacre):
A. Open a terminal
B. Change to your root kernel directory
C. Type "mkdir ../<your_kernel>_output"
D. Type "cp arch/arm/boot/zImage ../<your_kernel>_output/zImage"
E. Type "find . -name "*.ko" -exec cp {} ../<your_kernel>_output \;"[/code]

The above steps explained:

You will also need to assemble a kernel image containing a initramfs for your device, along with the kernel binary and such. That however is beyond the scope of this tutorial. To get started though try searching the following phrases.

building android kernel image
xda build kernel image
xda unpack boot.img

Outcome B. Build Fails

Oh dear. It failed. Well guess what...this is going to happen..a LOT. Get used to it, and get used to googling and experimenting with different solutions. The following are some tips that will help you with debugging your issues.
Running a "Clean" build
A. Backup your config file(Type "cp .config ../backupConfig")
B. Re-run the build process using just your defconfig from earlier.

Limiting Output(Thanks Hacre.)
A. Another good tip is to run "make -j1" to get the error, as it will limit the amount of text you need to scroll through.[/code]

(from a kernel tutorial)(cred =thewadegeek)

The kernel binary is output as `arch/arm/boot/zImage`, and needs to be copied into the Android source tree in order to build the matching boot image.

Quotes from threads

"when building a whole ROM like AOSP,AOKP,PA or CM then they typically bundle the toolchain/kernel with the source, making this totally unneeded."

"You can typically find a manufacturer's configuration file in "arch/arm/configs". I believe the one for my HTC Flyer was called "flyer_hc_defconfig"

A Q&A from a thread

How can I build the latest kernel using all described stuff (aosp source, kernel config, latest kernel)?

Jean-Baptiste Queru

That's not possible without some work. Device-specific kernel are
typically 3 steps away from the upstream kernel: one step adds
android-specific code, one step adds chipset-specific code, one step
adds device-specific code.

THIS IS NOT COMPLETE.. IT IS A ADVANCED STEP ,LIKE STEP 8 it will take patience and time...

This is the step for pulling the prop file or prop blobs from a "stock" phone...

This is the script that SuperR made for the Warp2



rm -rf $BASE/*

for FILE in `cat proprietary-files.txt | grep -v ^# | grep -v ^$`; do
DIR=`dirname $FILE`
if [ ! -d $BASE/$DIR ]; then
mkdir -p $BASE/$DIR
adb pull /system/$FILE $BASE/$FILE

This is one from the LGE Mako

and this one



rm -rf $BASE/*

for FILE in `cat proprietary-blobs.txt | grep -v ^# | grep -v ^$ | sed -e 's#^/system/##g'`; do
DIR=`dirname $FILE`
if [ ! -d $BASE/$DIR ]; then
mkdir -p $BASE/$DIR
adb pull /system/$FILE $BASE/$FILE

NOTICE: the main thing that changed was the


Your proprietary-file.txt depends on your phone.

I found that during a build, it actually told me diffrent .so files it needed.

Though if you made it this far, your phone is rooted, and you probably have "root explorer"
So you may want to open that up and orient yourself with what system files are in there.

Also, you can open other prop lists from similar phones and see what files they extracted.

Here is a list that PG and associates used

## RIL

## GPS

## Sensors

Another time when RAM will help you out.

Whatever steps you actually took to get here all depends on how much work has been put into your phone and how much of it you were able to find..

So if you have the following things done, You can continue to build if not, you better go get them.

1. Linux 64 OS
2. Build environment
3. up to date Repo
4. device repo
5. kernel source
6. proprietary files text/ extract.sh
7. prebuilts
8. ccache
9. Build command
10 Teamwork and Patience

"But Warp, you never explained some of this stuff.."
Yep, that's why there is a step about actually building it...

This next section is pulled from PG's read me

Getting my ZTE Sequent repo

$ cd ~/android/system/device/

$ mkdir zte

$ cd zte

$ git clone https://github.com/playfulgod/androi..._zte_warp2.git warp2

Note it says ZTE, not Sony, not Samsung, ETC

Then cd to the kernel directory:

$ cd ~/android/system/kernel

$ mkdir zte

$ git clone https://github.com/playfulgod/kernel_zte_warp2.git warp2

Then prop files from stock..

$ cd

$ cd ~/android/system/device/zte/warp2

$ ./extract-files.sh

When the environment is setup, we need to grab a copy of Term.apk. This is necessary to build CM10.

$ cd ~/android/system/vendor/cm

$ ./get-prebuilts

O k so I waited to tell you about CCACHE at the end. I guess I did that, because you don't need it untill the end anyway..OR is building just the beginning
You decide...



There's a wonderful tool for gcc called ccache. You can read about it at their home page.

If you're always compiling the same programs over and over again — such as trying out several kernel patches, or testing your own development — then ccache is perfect. While it may take a few seconds longer to compile a program the first time with ccache, subsequent compiles will be much, much faster.

Now that we know what it is


Setting up ccache

You can optionally tell the build to use the ccache compilation tool. Ccache acts as a compiler cache that can be used to speed-up rebuilds. This works very well if you do "make clean" often, or if you frequently switch between different build products.

Put the following in your .bashrc or equivalent.

export USE_CCACHE=1

By default the cache will be stored in ~/.ccache. If your home directory is on NFS or some other non-local filesystem, you will want to specify the directory in your .bashrc as well.

export CCACHE_DIR=<path-to-your-cache-directory>
example: export CCACHE_DIR=$HOME/.ccache

The suggested cache size is 50-100GB. You will need to run the following command once you have downloaded the source code:

prebuilts/misc/linux-x86/ccache/ccache -M 50G

When building Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.x) or older, ccache is in a different location:

prebuilt/linux-x86/ccache/ccache -M 50G

This setting is stored in the CCACHE_DIR and is persistent. (pulled str8 from the link)

Now, we build (system being your work directory):

$ cd ~/android/system

To build for the ZTE Sequent:

$ . build/envsetup.sh && brunch warp2

All credit to PG for his readme file...Which he updated it recently, this is the old one ,I think...

PostSubject: Re: WARP3D420 $OURCE TUTORIAL   Fri Jan 03, 2014 4:50 pm

Beating your head on the desk when you can't figure out why it wont build, boot , ...


In the true nature of a 12 step program, this process never ends.. You will always run into errors, you will always be looking for fixes, patches, and anything to correct a problem you are having.

So, basically the 12th step is TEAMWORK

I hope if this tutorial didn't suck to bad, you will come on this thread and post your questions, post your answers, post your advice. I just started
AND no, just because I made a Tutorial and finished it, it DOES NOT make me a Developer. That was a joke. You have to earn that $hyt...

But one thing i am, is motivated...

I hope you enjoyed my rendition of "HOW-TO-BUILD-FROM-SOURCE"

"make clobber"

In software engineering, clobbering a file or computer memory is overwriting its contents. In makefiles, a common target clobber means complete cleanup of all unnecessary files and directories produced by previous invocations of the make command.

"make clean"

deletes any files generated by previous attempts, leaving you with clean source code

These are codes to use when

1. encountering fatal errors
2. when you "repo sync" new data
3. when you make changes to make files etc...
