Prebuilt release image

The release image can be obtained from here.
After you download the binaries, follow the flashing instruction from "Flashing eMMC image" section.

Build PC setup

You would need a 64bit machine for building Android file system. You must have sudo permissions on the PC for installing packages

The following commands will install the correct packages to your PC:

Ubuntu 10.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.6-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos x-dev 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline5-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev 

Ubuntu 12.04

sudo apt-get install git-core flex bison gperf libesd0-dev zip libwxgtk2.8-dev zlib1g-dev build-essential tofrodos 
sudo apt-get install lib32readline6-dev libstdc++6 lib32z1 lib32z1-dev ia32-libs g++-multilib libx11-dev libncurses5-dev
mkdir ~/bin -p
sudo apt-get install curl
curl > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
export PATH=~/bin:$PATH

If you do not have sudo rights to your machine, contact your System Administrator for assistance.

The Kernel and Driver sources are built using the Android linux-x86 toolchain for ARM GNU/Linux version. This tool chain can be obtained when you pull the Android code based on the released manifest that will be given.

If you are behind proxy/firewall, workaround it using the instructions in [1]

Downloading Release Software

Android Filesystem Sources

Note: You should export environment variable "https_proxy", since Android repo initialization downloads repo tree from Google server over https connection.

export https_proxy=<local_site_proxy_server eg:>

You can get the Android source for this release by doing:

cd <your work directory>
mkdir -p 5AJ.1.3
cd 5AJ.1.3
export YOUR_PATH=`pwd`
mkdir -p mydroid; cd mydroid
export MYDROID=`pwd`
#Use http instead of https in git
git config --global url."http://".insteadOf https://
repo init -u git:// -b 5AJ.x -m RLS_5AJ.1.3.xml
repo sync

Kernel & Driver Sources

To clone kernel source from scratch do:

mkdir kernel
git clone git:// kernel/android-3.4
cd kernel/android-3.4
git checkout ba84518df1c32908b1188a73bf015d69e2f321e1

UsbBoot Sources

git clone git:// usbboot
cd usbboot
git checkout 71f4037a947416a6d40b5cae28180d65512d701c

Build Instructions

Setting up build environment

From your work directory (5AJ.1.3 folder):

export YOUR_PATH=`pwd`
export MYDROID=${YOUR_PATH}/mydroid
export PATH=$PATH:${MYDROID}/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/
mkdir $MYDROID/logs
export CROSS_COMPILE=${MYDROID}/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/arm-eabi-

Building usbboot

This is for creating the emmc boot

cd ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot
git clean -fdx
export TOOLCHAIN=${MYDROID}/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/arm-eabi-
make MACH=omap5 BOARD=omap5uevm clean
make MACH=omap5 BOARD=omap5uevm CROSS_COMPILE=${HOME}/.jenkins/workspace/OMAP5_AFS/prebuilt/linux-x86/toolchain/arm-eabi-4.4.3/bin/arm-eabi-

Building Kernel

To create kernel uImage you need to add "mkimage" directory path to your "PATH" environment variable:

cd ${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
make -j$(cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep ^proc|wc -l) ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi- mrproper
make -j$(cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep ^proc|wc -l) ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi- android_omap_defconfig
make -j$(cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep ^proc|wc -l) ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-eabi- uImage modules

Building Android Filesystem (AFS)

. build/
lunch 17  #(specific lunch target: full_omap5panda-userdebug)
make -j $(egrep '^processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l) clean
make -j $(egrep '^processor' /proc/cpuinfo | wc -l)

Building TI WLAN & Blueti Drivers

When building the wifi drivers and the new blue tooth blueti drivers you will also need to also have the CROSS_COMPILE also set as listed above in Setting up the Build


Wifi Drivers

export KERNEL_DIR=${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
export ARCH=arm
cd ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wlan/mac80211/compat_wl18xx/
make -j4 clean  
make -j4

Blueti Drivers

export KERNEL_DIR=${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
export ARCH=arm
cd ${MYDROID}/hardware/ti/wpan/bluetooth-compat/
make -j4 clean  
make -j4

Ducati and Graphics instruction

Download the pre-built graphics and ducati binaries for this release from here. Place them in appropriate location in AFS output.

mkdir sgx_ducati
cd sgx_ducati

## Download the ducati and graphics tar balls in sgx_ducati folder

tar -xvf ducati.tgz
cp -v ducati/ducati-m3-core0.xem3 ${MYDROID}/out/target/product/panda5/system/vendor/firmware/

tar -xvf sgx.tgz
 cp -vrf sgx/* ${MYDROID}/out/target/product/panda5/

Preparing Android binaries

Officially this release supports emmc boot. For the emmc the system image file must have the sgx and ducati binary included, the document

OPBU_Linux_panda5AJ_1_2_Release_Notes.doc contain details on other components that can also be added to the AFS as done for sgx and ducati. It is recommended to read the

document before building your final image.

Rebuild Android Filesystem (AFS) to include the Wifi, Ducati & SGX binaries

Wifi & BT kernel modules:

export KERNEL=${YOUR_PATH}/kernel/android-3.4
export BOARD_TYPE="panda5"
cd $MYDROID/out/target/product/$BOARD_TYPE
mkdir -p system/lib/modules; cd system/lib/modules

cp -v ${YOUR_PATH}/usbboot/out/omap5uevm/iboot.ift emmc_files  # for a GP device

Flashing eMMC images

This is done using usbboot to put the PANDA5 board (OMAP5) in fastboot mode with the steps given below:

Required switch settings on the Panda5 board to enable eMMC boot. (S6 on the back of the board)
     3     2    1     0

1. Connect your USB3 cable from the target to your flashing station, the power supply, 
& the micro usb cable using a terminal or screen 
(for screen the command is: screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200)

2. Make sure the board is powered OFF

3. Start usbbboot in fastboot mode:

      sudo ./usbboot -f
         When running this command you will see: 
         usbboot -f:  starting in fastboot mode
         waiting for device...

4. Power up your board

     From the terminal you should see something similar to this saying the device is in fastboot mode: 
            r1Texas Instruments Inc Bootloader 1.1.0-jenkins-OMAP5_usbboot-102^0
            Build Info: Apr 20 2012 - 05:01:26
            Entering fastboot mode...
   From the command prompt where you ran the usbboot command you should see something similar to this below:

    device is ED/HD (EMU/HS)
    sending 2ndstage to target... f0030002
    waiting for 2ndstage response...
    received 2ndstage response...

5. Run your script
     sudo ./
       This will flash the binaries into the emmc on the Panda board.

6. Now reset the board and let it boot up.
