Xoom with ICS 4.0.3 AOSP how to
Now that the code is out, let's start hacking the Xoom.
These instructions are for Linux 64-bit Ubuntu 11.10 / Mint 12, with latest updates.
- follow directions on source.android.com to set up your environment
- then move to next page to set up the repo and download the code
- make sure you use Sun/Oracle Java Development Kit 1.6.x. It WILL NOT work with OpenJDK, which comes with Ubuntu 11.10/Mint 12. (best is remove OpenJDK to avoid hard to track errors)
- downloading the code takes ages (a good 2h even with a good connection) and requires at least 2GB of hard disk space. But for compilation, I'd recommend to have 20GB at least.
- download proprietary drivers at: http://tinyurl.com/6rfu8rn
- extract the drivers from Broadcom and NVidia, this will gives you 2 .sh files
- just run these 2 .sh files and copy the created vendor/ directory into the root of your Google code repo.
There are 2 kinds of Xoom
- Xoom Verizon LTE, codename stingray
- Xoom wifi, codename wingray
Make some corrections in the code for GCC 4.6
- external/mesa3d/src/glsl/linker.cpp: l.70 add: #include <cstddef>
To build the code:
- . ./build/envsetup.sh
- lunch full_stingray-userdebug or full_wingray-userdebug
- make -j5
This can take 2h to compile on an average machine like my MacBook Pro with 8GB RAM (very important to have more than 4GB!!!), or even more. And having a quad-core machine (or even more cores), really saves you tons of time!
Once compilation is done, it's time to flash:
- go to out/target/product/wingray (or stingray)
- put your Xoom in fastboot mode: power off, then volume down + power on
- fastboot erase cache
- fastboot erase userdata
- fastboot flash boot boot.img
- fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
- fastboot flash system system.img
- fastboot reboot
Note: you don't need to flash recovery.img, you should instead flash ClockworkMod recovery (http://download.clockworkmod.com/rec...4-stingray.img
And voila, you have a Xoom with WiFi working and all goodies from AOSP. This means no Google apps like Market...
To install Google Apps:
- download this zip file [http://www.mediafire.com/?1l4ravroiwt4ybw[/url]
- unzip it and go inside the folder
- boot your device normally
- rm system/app/Nfc*
- adb push system /system
- adb reboot
There are some errors with exchange service but Market, GMail, Maps work correctly. From there, go update your apps from Market
Update 1: Android 4.0.1 issues back in 4.0.3?
Some people noted some compilation errors I didn't get on 4.0.3 but on 4.0.1. Here are solutions for 4.0.1 (emulator) that may work for you:
build/core/combo/HOST_linux-x86.mk:61 HOST_GLOBAL_CFLAGS += -U_FORTIFY_SOURCE
build/core/combo/javac.mk:15 COMMON_JAVAC := javac -J-Xmx512M -target 1.5 -source 1.5
frameworks/base/libs/util/Android.mk: 63 LOCAL_CFLAGS += -DLIBUTILS_NATIVE=1 $(TOOL_CFLAGS) -fpermissive
libcore/luni/src/main/java/java/lang/Enum.java: 128 return ordinal - o.ordinal ()
external/gtest/include/gtest/internal/gtest-param-util.h:40 #include <cstddef>
(after #include <vector>)
