Manual to Compile Android for PINE46
#1
Anyone, 

Could please provide the steps to compile an Android image for PINE64. I would like to start working in the latest Android image, specially targeting the AndroidTV build for the PINE64.

This thread could be used to aggregate the steps-by-steps later.

Provisioning to add possible steps here later, so no one needs to hunt multiple pages of messages.

Download latest Android SDK (Android MM 6.0) from here: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Pine_A6...ndroid_SDK

Once in the source directory:
(Its very useful to use ccache and -jobs option to speed up a lot the compiling procedure)

Code:
$ export USE_CCACHE=1
$ export CCACHE_DIR=/path/of/.ccache
$ prebuilts/misc/linux-x86/ccache/ccache -M 50G

$ source build/envsetup.sh
$ lunch tulip_p1-eng
$ make -jN

Replace /path/of/.ccache with your preferred directory
Replace N with the number of your CPU cores.

But, at this point I have a question too:

How to flash the MicroSD using dd? I can't find any info in the wiki.
I mean, we should have a proper partition layout before to flash generated image files.

Is anyone working on a dedicated media-image like Openelec ?

Thanks for the quick reply, why tulip_p1-eng ?

did you created the pine64 or this is a copy from another device, to use as baseline  ?

I take that you mean linux based ? We would need the mali binaries for that to make sense.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

tulip_p1 is the device codename of PINE64.

I had to modify the file build/core/combo/mac_version.mk

How can I upload you, or anyone with this changes ? where is the official github tree ?

Also I'm getting this error:

It seems we need to add teh following :
export EXPERIMENTAL_USE_JAVA8=1

I'm trying to set this variable without too many success so far.

When I try to compile it, I get an error

Code:
No private recovery resources for TARGET_DEVICE tulip_p1-eng
make: *** No rule to make target 'external/wpa_supplicant_8/wpa_supplicant/src/drivers/drivers.mk'. Stop.
#### make failed to build some targets (08:39 (mm:ss)) ####
I tried to reinstall ubuntu, the same issue
How can I solve it?
I use Ubuntu 16.04 and openjdk-7
#9
@lvcargnini: I suggest you to downgrade to java 7, Android 6 isn't ready yet to be compiled with java 8 by default.
AFAIK there isn't any official github tree.

Take a look in external/wpa_supplicant_8/wpa_supplicant, there must be a symlink named src pointing to ../src.
