Arrgh this Android environment is tough hehe!
So I deleted the two folders I copied over from my Mac yesterday (devices/samsung, and /vendor/samsung) and resynced..
When it was done, since I still had the /vendor window opened, I noticed it had remade the samsung folder. Looking at it and comparing it to the folder on my Mac, it looks like this already pulled the proprietary files from github for me??? Is this possible??
Its got all the same contents as the one from my Mac which was pulled from my i777.
Still cant get my phone to be seen by adb on Ubuntu so I decided to build anyways, since it looks like its all there.
Im hitting this error repeatedly now:
"/bin/bash: prebuilts/gcc/linux-x86/arm/arm-linux-androideabi-4.6/bin/arm-linux-androideabi-gcc: cannot execute binary file".
So a little bit of research into the error and I ran across another JB thread with the same problem.
Apparently (and maybe you guys that made guides for building should update it) JB requires a 64bit host to build.
I screwed up and installed the 32bit Ubuntu (thinking this was the right version for a first gen pseudo 64bit Mac Pro).
So now apparently Ive got to start all over again. Although I dont get why my Mac, even though it failed in building, never ran into this error.
Sure I have 64bit Xeons in here but my Snow Leopard is 32bit, and my EFI is 32bit as well so I cant even run a 64bit kernel if I wanted to.. Never saw it on my Mac but in Ubuntu it pops up almost instantly after starting a build..
