Hi Friends, I was wondering how to compile android from source for My MAKO Device ?

before anyone says that What the Heck ?? ____ I have been through many tutorials, unfortunatily those are for compiline CM which i am not able to clone on my Laptop due to some GIT access issue from my Workplace.

Further i followed the official documentation for compilind android on source.android.com and was able to bild the IMAGE but as soon as i flashed the Image My Nexus's scren got blank and nothing happened .

so, can someone please guide me on how to compile Android from Source (NO CM/ ETC.) for MAKO ..

Thanks in Advance.

AOSP (source.android.com) is android. Are you sure you compiled the right packages. That you included the prebuilts and everything?

Ya . I did everything step by step. And finally I got the images but after flashing the images on my N4 I got a blank screen after boot animation.

Do you have another link so that I can try that method !.

Did you compile for the right device? I believe the guide on source.android.com is for the emulator.

It is, maybe you should read it again to see if you haven't missed anything.

Sure SMillerNL, i will do it again and report back.
Another thing, is actually , when i compile the sorce, I get various images, bootloader.img, system.img, etc. So, How to make a flashable zip out of those, so i can test the rom on MultiRom on my device, rather than flashing from ground 0 , as nexus4 is my kinna daily driver mobile phone.
