[edit] Build and Installation Instructions

Building the Bootloader, Kernel and Android File System

The final Release RC tag from L25x manifest for the source should be used. Perform a clean build of u-boot, x-loader, kernel and the android file system. Instructions on how to build can also be obtained from Android Wiki

Pre-built binaries from this release can be obtained from RLS25.12 Package. Please follow the below instructions to modify the file system to make it work.

RLS25.12 when built from the release tag may not boot without some DSP binaries. You should be able to boot if you rename /system/lib/libskiahw.so to something else without requiring any DSP components.

It's the JPEG decoder that's looking for rmproxy, since resource manager is enabled in this release which requires qosdyn_3430 and baseimage. Doing this will enable the sw codec and boot will work without needing any DSP components. These are available as part of the DSP package and can be used from that to boot without the above procedure.

DSP binaries package

Pull in the DSP binaries and install them following the instructions in the readme.txt in the package. Features supported can be referred at OpenMAX page

Connectivity package

Connectivity package can be obtained from Wilink project. For instructions to build and test, refer to Wilink wiki
