Smile [ROM][Development/Experimental][Micromax A70][CyanogenMod from Source]


Hi All.

I am Abhisek and I am trying to build CyanogenMod from source for our Micromax A70.

Micromax A70 is quite popular in India as a budget phone, but this device is stuck with Froyo. No more updates from Micromax as well as no kernel source from Micromax. So I am trying to build CyanogenMod from source for Micromax A70.

I am choosing CyanogenMod over AOSP as CyanogenMod supports more devices and have many patches over AOSP. So building CyanogenMod will be easier than AOSP. If successful, I will port a Oxygen/AOSP build.

I was about to give up hope until I found out how to enable ADB on Micromax A70. So I have successfully enabled ADB & obtained the system dumps. Now I can start on this project.

Current Status:


1. ADB is working perfectly.
2. System dump obtained.
3. Hardware info obtained.
4. Firmwares obtained.
5. CyanogenMod sources download in progress.
6. Currently creating the device & vendor folders.


I will keep the progress updated here. Lets hope for best.

P.S. Mods if this thread is inappropriate or in wrong forum, please do the needful. Couldn't find a better place to post this.
You are either part of the solution or part of the Problem

I will provide the adb tutorial in case anyone is interested ( that is how I got the system dump ). All credits go to mastermind1024 of androidforums.com. It's not my work, so if you have to thank, thank him. He is the one did all the adb working stuff. You can read the original post Here.

Update:

mastermind1024 is here on XDA. You can see the tutorial Here.

For me, I have to manually run /sbin/adbd from Android terminal emulator to get a working adb connection. You also have to give permission for adbd in SuperUser. FYI I use ubuntu.

If you need the boot.img & recovery.img You can follow the tutorial Here

You meant Micromax right :P

Yes the ROM is under development. The repo sync is taking forever. I have a pathetic BSNL BB Connection here.

Yes AFAIK if I succeed, this will first GB ROM for A70.

------------ edit -------------

I have tried to run ADB with root permissions. It works, but somehow adb remout does not work.

P.S.: I found the problem, the system was already r/w.
