HOW TO COMPILE CM7 ROMS FROM SOURCE
I have written this guide only for linux Users
The guide starts here :-
Install the ADB
Install the Android SDK
2.Install the Build Packages
Install using the package manager of your choice:
For 32-bit & 64-bit systems:
sudo apt-get install git-core gnupg flex bison gperf libsdl1.2-dev libesd0-dev libwxgtk2.6-dev squashfs-tools build-essential zip curl libncurses5-dev zlib1g-dev sun-java6-jdk pngcrush schedtool
For 64-bit only systems:
sudo apt-get install g++-multilib lib32z1-dev lib32ncurses5-dev lib32readline5-dev gcc-4.3-multilib g++-4.3-multilib
NOTE: gcc-4.3-multilib g++-4.3-multilib is no longer available for Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit, but should still build without issue.
NOTE: On Ubuntu 10.10, and variants, you need to enable the parter repository to install sun-java6-jdk:
sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/
This will get you all the resources you need to build your CyanogenMod ROM
3.Create the Directories
You will need to set up some directories in your build environment.
To create them:
mkdir -p ~/bin
mkdir -p ~/android/system
4.Install the Repository
Enter the following to download make executable the "repo" binary:
> ~/bin/repo "OR" curl https://github.com/spaarc/tools_repo/blob/master/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo
NOTE: You may need to reboot for these changes to take effect.
Now enter the following to initialize the repository:
repo init -u git://github.com/CyanogenMod/android.git -b gingerbread
repo sync -j16
5.Copy proprietary files
NOTE: This only needs done the first time you build.
You will need to have a Xperia X10 with a working copy of CyanogenMod install and ADB working on the computer. This script will copy the proprietary files from the device.
Connect the device to the computer and ensure that ADB is working properly.
NOTE: If some hardware isn't working, like camcorder or FM radio, you will need to find the updated prop blobs.
NOTE: This only needs to be done when an update to RomManager is released. If you are-up-to date, you may skip to Building CyanogenMod.
Download RomManager which is needed by the build:
Check for updates
First, check for updates in the source:
Configure Build & Compile
Now, the environment must be configured to build and the ROM compiled, from code, for the Xperia X10
. build/envsetup.sh && brunch es209ra
Copy your .zip file from ~/android/system/out/target/product/es209ra/update.cm-XXXXX-signed.zip to the root of the SD card.
Optional: Download Google Apps for CyanogenMod 7 and place it on the root of the SD card.
Flash both of these .zip files from recovery.
