Hi everybody
I need some help on kernel building.
After a quick documentation I understood that to customize kernel i need sources corresponding to my smartphone model (sources that must be public if I am not mistaken).
Now I have the misfortune of working with a Virtual V501 smartphone. I hope someone knows because i can't find any documentation on the internet.
Thus I can't get the kernel source for this smartphone, and I wonder if there are alternative solutions for modding the kernel or to obtain sources.

The purpose of this modding is the addition of libusbhost library, which I've noticed to be present in system / lib. But if i try to connect an external device via OTG cable it doesn't work properly.

Hi there!

There's many generic kernel building codes on XDA, I search and found too many.

Here's a good generic one...

Without source for your device, which there's no mention of on XDA, it will be difficult I bet.

There's nothing more XDA assist can do to help I'm afraid, we're here to point people in the right direction, if there is one...on XDA only. You may need to look around elsewhere for your source!

Good luck. 👍
