I'm stuck at the "Obtaining proprietary binaries" step
- I download Android source to the directory that I name it to be "android_src"
- I download Sony Xperia S's proprietary binaries from http://developer.sonymobile.com/know...peria-devices/already and I got the " vendor" folder which is not in the "android_src" folder.
How do I include the proprietary binaries into the my own AOSP rom?
I would not recommend you to use the binaries on the Sony website as they are outdated. Instead, please have a look at this github - https://github.com/billchen1977?tab=repositories
billchen1977 has provided all the required stuff for building aosp. So basically you need to create a local manifest in .repo/local_manifests.
You can do that by following these steps -
Now copy this code into the XML file -
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project path="kernel/sony/msm8x60" name="billchen1977/kernel_sony_msm8x60" remote="github" />
I have added only one repo (the kernel). Similarly add the other two repos also and then simply run repo sync and you should be able to build the ROM then.
