Default Android L Port Disscussion

As you most likely all know, Android L has been pushed into AOSP. This means creating a ROM will be significantly easier than building it from the Nexus 5 preview image.

Are any devs currently working on a port? I hope someone is at least making some attempts to bring Android L to Hercules.
Feel free to leave questions & comments!



Here's a thread dedicated to trying to help you mimic the Android L experience.

As far as I have read, they only released part of the source... So may not be possible.

Maybe I'm wrong tho.

The N5 only has a few "ROMs" even, based on L...and they are just stock with a few changes.

Need help with poor battery life on the N5...or any device really? Lots of info in first 4 posts! >>>>

Once it gets merged into CM(12?) source I'll take a look at it.

Default I was bored

I was poking at the L dev release today and made it flashable for the hercules. I was able to get a very rudimentary logcat from it
Code:
- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -
So I'm gonna take a look at the ramdisk, there must be something new with mounts. Some progress but nothing worthy of an upload, mainly just a heads up that hey someone's upto it. I'll keep working on it...

Android L for Hercules is now open source. If anyone would like to take a look at my progress, I'm currently building a device tree with all the changes I make (currently just ramdisk). Also if interested keep an eye out on my kernel as I may make a L specific branch.

Past SELinux? Nope I haven't been working on it. I realized spending time on a Dev kit is sorta futile as there are gonna be changes which will just require a restart of my progress....I'll be on it when source code is out
