Hi folks!
First try attempting in building a LineageOS so I think I'll mess up something xD
Anyway I have two main questions:
1) I have vendor blobs, kernel, device tree and some other important things (like qcom-common....) for my phone.
I found where to put the other things but I can't understand what should I do with kernel...
Should I clone github repo then include in the project folder and stop or should I do something else like compiling, running scripts or...what?
2) How do I test my build? is there any emulator for Android (I am using Linux but no problem in switching to Windows) that is able to load custom roms and flash and the other stuff? Can't test on real hardware because it is my only phone and I don't have another one.
Also I can't test due unability of hard-unbrick.

Thanks for your patience and for you replies and have a good time!

I am also interested in developing/porting. can you help me?
As far as i know, have to setup git, clone lineage repository, clone device kernel from manufacturer git, extract vendor binaries from device, build device tree
The questions i have
1. What is device tree? Are device tree HALs that translate between drivers and Android system?
2. Where to put these things and how to build?
