Android L Port for Samsung GT-I9505 Galaxy S 4





WARNING!!! Read this first!!!

Quote:

In this stage, the port can only be installed succesfully on our device. It isn't even booting up. I`m asking kernel developers to make a sample for Android L based on Google Sources. Then I will try my best to fix what problems will appear. Thank you in advance.

What is working?

Quote:

- Installation process 100% (No errors)
- Bootanimation

What is needed for further development?

Quote:

- [REQ] Custom ANDROID L Kernel for I9505
- /system tweaks - I will do them after the first complete boot
- I`m asking developers to take a look on the logcat below. There seems to be some problems with .lib files

What has been done until now?

Quote:

- Got the Base(SlimKAT 6.0 STABLE) and the PORT (flashable .zip of N5 Android L Developer Preview)
- Deleting /app, /priv-app, /media, /framework, /fonts from BASE and replace them with the ones from PORT. They will need further optimisations.
- Fixing permissions acording to the ones from Android L Developer Preview
- Fixing build.prop settings
- Fixing updater-script since it gave lots of installation erros
- Building the main ALPHA .zip
- Got a logcat from booting which I`m gonna post it down below
- That's it for now

Installation Instructions

Quote:

1. You must be ROOTED.
2. You must run latest TWRP or CWM Recovery.
3. IT IS A PRIORITY TO MAKE A NANDROID BACKUP FIRST!
4. WIPE ALL
5. Flash .zip in recovery.
6. Reboot and enjoy the beautiful animation. At least for now...

No, it needs a custom kernel based on Android L for it to boot up.

I would, but I don't exactly know what to look for. I mean I know how to extract boot.img and things like that, but I don't know what to modify in order to make it work...
